A sample of the treasures that await…

It is said that taste can’t be bought. Perhaps. But you can certainly rent it. The Tortuga Bay villas for rent in Punta Cana are the only AAA five-diamond properties in the Dominican Republic. With interiors by the celebrated international designer Oscar de la Renta, private pools and views across the ocean, these properties allow guests to unwind within the most exclusive and prestigious corner of the Punta Cana Resort and Club.

Extensive grounds feature lush and mature gardens that create a wonderful sense of self-containment and privacy. Your large private pool is a gorgeous feature that sits between your expansive thatched veranda and the wide blue ocean.

If you are a large party who likes direct access onto the beach, look no further than Corales 28, just one of the Punta Cana villa rentals that’s perfectly positioned to capitalize on its access to one of the most idyllic beaches in the Caribbean. The layout of the property works really well for multi-generation family vacationers.

A Feast for your Senses

For those who are looking for that more relaxing and rejuvenating vacation, you can enjoy an opportunity to indulge in the exclusive Six Senses Spa. This award-winning, state of the art spa embraces the concept of sustainability while harnessing all the natural beauty of the Punta Cana Resort.

Golf

What is the Dominican Republic known for? Golf! It’s unquestionably the golfing capital of the Caribbean. The weather certainly helps ensure year-round conditions for players. Punta Cana Resort and Club is home to two incredible golf courses.

Developed within the 15,000 acres that make up the exclusive Resort, probably the best known is La Cana Golf course. This challenging course which draws comparisons with the inimitable Pebble Beach, was designed by PB Dye and Tom Fazio. The views of the dramatic coastline as you make your way around are dazzling.

The second course, Corales, was designed by Tom Fazio and opened in 2010. Again, this is a course that has harnessed the spectacular terrain of this coastline and has delivered a golf course that is up there with some of the top courses in the world. Keen golfers find both courses extremely interesting to play with the Devil’s Elbow, where there’s a carry over the cliffs of Corales, one of many memorable talking points.

Beach Club and Beach House

Even if you haven’t been out golfing, you will have to take in the splendour of the La Cana Golf and Beach Club. One of the Dominican Republic’s most beloved sons, the great Oscar de la Renta, worked with the creative team that designed and built the Clubhouse. It’s a chic destination for lunch, to swim or a game of backgammon. As you sip a cocktail, you will love the combination of the creamy white stone façade, tiled roofs and the terraces with stylish chairs in natural fibres. The whole concept combines to offer a beautiful setting in which to relax and socialize, in the shade of the coconut tree-dotted garden.

Simply divine.

Beaches

One of the most popular things to do in Punta Cana is to fully experience every facet of the Caribbean ocean. The 3-mile beach that skirts this gorgeous Resort boasts blue flag status, acknowledging its purity. The warm, tranquil waters, protected by offshore reefs, make the beach a wonderful destination for all ages and proficiencies.

Young children in your group or anyone who might not be the most confident swimmer won’t feel out of their depth (almost literally!) as they enjoy waters that are quite still and calm.

As an additional bonus, the amazing offshore reef offers the more adventurous water enthusiasts an opportunity to snorkel and dive. The world below the surface is alive with flora and fauna, all of the gentle and curious creatures that live along the reef.

Fish of all colours dazzle in iridescent splendour alongside fantastical sea plants. The Dominican Republic has embraced the importance of protecting the ecology of its beautiful country. Consequently, the reef is protected, and anyone snorkelling or diving is given really valuable instructions about how to enjoy the experience.
