Although the resort itself is new, the Westin Puntacana Resort & Spa is built on the first development of the Dominican Republic’s Caribbean coast. The upscale property stretches for 15,000-acres along the island’s eastern headland with two golf courses, three miles of white-sand beaches and a wide range of recreational facilities to entertain guests of all ages.
An hourly shuttle transports guests throughout the vast property to an outdoor pool, tennis courts, kids and teen’s clubs, and the property’s five restaurants. Past guests recommend La Yola, serving seafood from an open-air, over-water thatched roof hut. Guests can explore the turquoise Caribbean waters with kiteboard and paddleboard rentals, scuba diving and deep sea fishing tours bookable through the hotel. Visitors can book spa treatments for individuals or couples in treatment rooms or the privacy of guest rooms. After the sun sets, the resort offers four bars for a nightcap.
All rooms have at least partial ocean views from floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies. The tropical surroundings are incorporated in room design through dark wicker furnishings, botanical prints and khaki-colored walls. Starting at over 400 square-feet, spacious accommodations feature iPod docking stations, flat screen televisions, Westin Heavenly Bed® and marble bathrooms. Premium Ocean View rooms are 50% bigger than Traditional and Ocean View Suites are almost twice as large and have separate living rooms. Wi-Fi is available for an additional fee. Tortuga Bay, an exclusive, 32-villa resort-within-the-resort, hosted Harrison Ford and was designed by Oscar de la Renta, a part-time resident.
Unlike the rough Atlantic waters churning up seaweed against the rocky, western coast, the D.R.’s Caribbean side is a glittering sea of aquamarine. The clear, calm waters are ideal for spotting the area’s diverse sea life and sunken ships.
