Ideally situated along Punta Cana’s Bavaro Beach in the Dominican Republic, the luxury, adults-only, all-inclusive Bahia Principe Ambar provides guests with their own slice of heaven thanks to premium amenities, a near-perfect location, spa treatments to relax even the most uptight Type A personality and gourmet international cuisine.
Accommodations. It’s hard to feel more pampered that you will at the Bahia Principe Ambar. Each of its 1,026 rooms is equipped with an outdoor whirlpool tub, hydro-massage shower and canopy bed evoking a tropical ambiance worthy of its location. Guests may also take advantage of complimentary W-iFi throughout the hotel.
Activities. Those who love to dance (and sing) will want to party the night away at the resort’s disco or take their turn at belting out their favorite tunes at the Karaoke piano bar. During the day, two large lake-style pools offer the perfect spot from which to relax and soak in the sun, or for those who are a little less sedentary, take part in an aqua gym or dry and wet Pilates class. Duffers can also take advantage of the resort’s proximity to two golf courses — the 18-hole Punta Blanca Golf Club, designed by Nick Price, and the nine-hole White Sands Golf. Water lovers will want to try their hand at a variety of water sports, including snorkeling, sailing, parasailing and scuba, or just sitting surfside and relaxing to the gentle sound of the waves.

When it comes time for some libations, be they poolside or an après dinner drink, the resort has multiple options from poolside to oceanfront and everyplace in between. And when mealtime rolls around, guests of the resort can select from seven restaurants offering tantalizing international cuisine buffet-style, as well, as specialty restaurants offering up the finest in Italian, Asian, French cuisine, Tex-Mex, Brazilian steakhouse and Mediterranean cuisines.
Spa. Guests can unwind and release all their cares at the Bahia Spa at Esmeralda, which offers a wide range of massages, as well as beauty and salon treatments including facials and mani/pedis. Select from a hot stone and essential oil massage, reflexology, lymphatic drainage or perhaps a relaxing aromatherapy massage. Also on offer are deep tissue massage, back and cranial massages, as well as a body exfoliation and moisturizing massage. For something you won’t find anywhere else, try the Caribbean massage which brings your body and soul into harmony with a traditional Caribbean technique that utilizes bamboo. And for a romantic spin, try the Special VIP for Couples massage, which offers use of a private Jacuzzi. Guests can also choose from the following body treatments: Chocolate, Coconut, Aloe Vera, Cleopatra (a full-body oil treatment), Seaweed and Mud. Guests wanting to sample a few treatments may select from a wide range of treatment packages.
Guests all enjoy 24-hour room service, butler service and complimentary hour of either paddle surfing, tennis, snorkeling, catamaraning, kayaking, sailing or boogie boarding.
