Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Paradisus Palma Real Golf Spa Resort
What it is
An expansive, all-inclusive seafront resort with every luxury you can think of, including myriad outdoor pools, three stylish restaurants, a serene spa, and a verdant golf course.
What it isn't
Forgetting the littles. The resort dotes on kiddos, including The Kidsdom, where a bouncy castle, board games, crafts and more await.
What we think
Those that want to spend their vacay on the sand will be very happy here, but those that don’t will be happy here, too. Paradisus really is paradise because it’s chockablock with all manner of activities—from poolside yoga to chocolate making workshops. Every room here is indulgent and expansive, starting with the 516 square foot Junior Suite Garden View (each equipped with a private balcony, curated minibar of local and organic options, deep soaking tub, and DreamMaker mattress so comfy you’ll never want to get out of bed). For direct pool access from your room, book the Nikté Junior Suite Swim-Up; a turquoise pool laps at your door, err, terrace.
You're here because
The resort has adults-only areas, called The Reserve, where you can splay on a private beach and stay in suites that allow swim up access to the pools. Bliss.
All inclusive resorts tend to get a bad rap, but tonight, under the lush trees at Flora, you’re finding the opposite is true. The locavore menu is stocked with the one crave-inducing option after the next…each so delicious you’re going to go ahead and come back again tomorrow.
