Just 45 minutes from Punta Cana on a pristine stretch of beach along the Dominican Republic’s southeastern coast sits an eco-friendly resort that manages to combine sustainable practices with the ultimate in luxury
In fact, the resort offers couples (and couples with kids) Unlimited Luxury, where nearly everything is included and where everything is amazing.
Suite Accommodations. With 756 family-sized rooms and suites, guests can spread out and relax in luxurious accommodations. Each room and suite is equipped with a spacious bathroom and luxury bath amenities; a private, furnished balcony or terrace; MP3 docking station; and concierge service, among other top-line amenities. Take your trip to the next level with the Preferred Club, where guests enjoy an upgraded suite, private lounge access and special concierge service and other enhanced amenities.
Dining Around. Eleven restaurants and six bars mean that guests of La Romana are spoilt for choice when it comes time to dine or drink. Whether it’s the finest in Italian fare, gourmet French, grill favorites or seafood caught fresh that day, La Romana’s dining options don’t disappoint.
Activities. There’s more than enough to keep guests busy (or relaxed). A pristine beach offers plenty of opportunity for swimming and sun, while nearby, three of the Caribbean’s top golf courses mean plenty of chances to perfect your swing. Families can enjoy some of the numerous tours and excursions available but when parents need some time alone, they can head off to the on-site casino while their kids enjoy their own time at the Explorer’s Club or Core Zone Teens Club. For those in-between times, there are tennis clinics, fishing excursions, euro-bungee and ocean trampoline, a baseball cage, big-screen movies on the beach, theme nights, beach volleyball, aerobics (beach or pool), dance and Spanish lessons– there’s even a scalable inflatable iceberg.

Spa and Fitness. The resort’s onsite spa, Dreams Spa by Pevonia, offers guests numerous ways in which to relax and pamper themselves. The 21,000-square foot spa features three areas – Main, Garden and Seaside – as well as a hydrotherapy area, offering whirlpools and other hydromassages. Guests can choose from a range of specialized treatments including facials, salon treatments and body treatments (try the Water Lily After-Sun Soothing Wrap) and massage treatments such as the winetherapy massage, and the open bar spa where you can select up to four or six massage therapies.
Spa treatment packages are also available for the ultimate in indulgence. Better yet, treat the entire family—the spa offers treatments such as a strawberry hydrating facial or a chocolate body wrap just for teens and children. When the pampering is over, a full-service state-of-the-art gym awaits guests, ensuring the health benefits continue long after the massage is over.
How do guests keep track of everything going on at La Romana? There’s an app for that. Guests can download the AMResorts app and get free Wi-Fi throughout the resort, as well as access to dining menus, restaurant times, your daily activity calendar and more. You can even book spa appointments through the app.
