When you’re craving five-star treatment and want a truly indulgent holiday, the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar in the Dominican Republic is a luxury retreat that guarantees sun, sea and superlative cocktails. Bordering Haiti, the Dominican Republic is the second-largest island in the Caribbean and one of its most geographically diverse countries, with mountains, vast swathes of untouched land, ancient colonial architecture, and seemingly endless beaches, where visitors come to enjoy the year-round tropical climate. The Punta Cana region is situated on the easternmost tip, with a coastline lapped by both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s here you’ll find the exclusive Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar hotel, part of the Bahia Principe group, who take pride in choosing offthe-beaten-path locations for their properties. This unassuming, allinclusive resort grants direct access to the beach (also known as the Coconut Coast), which has 32km of sand and crystal-clear waters. Spacious grounds allow for plentiful greenery; the main hotel consists of low-rise, two-storey buildings, contemporary in style, and designed to complement the surroundings. All ground-floor properties have swim-up pools and secluded terraces, while upstairs apartments have spacious suntrap balconies. Each suite is decorated in modern neutral tones, and guests have air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, bathrobes and slippers, tea- and coffee-making facilities, a safety-deposit box and free WiFi, along with a giant bed, pillow menu and nightly turndown service. You even get your own personal butler. Every aspect of enjoyment is catered for, from the friendly staff who’ll remember your name and favourite drink, to the multitude of golf buggies on standby to whisk guests around the site. However, the white-sand beach and rows of palm trees are just footsteps away, and the private bay is a hub of activity for guests. Rows of sunbeds, complete with fresh towels and coconut-tree shades await: perfect for a day of lounging, swimming and sipping cocktails. Nighttime activities change weekly, and range from pool parties and live music to cabaret shows and silent discos. Download the hotel’s easy to use app for the most up-to-date information (this also enables you to reserve seats at the restaurants and book treatments at the Bahia Spa, which uses locally sourced aloe vera and coconut, as well as 100 per cent pure native cocoa). The all-inclusive package offers access to the restaurants and bars in all five neighbouring hotels in the wider Grand Bahia Principe complex, so you can enjoy a different style of cuisine each day. From à la carte Italian to Mongolian barbecue in the beachside diner, the restaurants have top chefs from around the globe, as well as an extensive buffet which changes daily.
