Best Resorts in the Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is one of the most popular vacation destinations for quintessential sun and sand getaways, with sought-after shores dotting the coastline including the famous Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana and Playa Dorada just outside Puerto Plata. It’s not just the beach that keeps us coming back for more – you can snorkel alongside exotic marine life, go ziplining at Bavaro Adventure Park, or explore the fascinating history and colonial-era buildings in this exquisite backyard.

LIVE Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana

One of the best resorts in the Dominican Republic rests on a beautiful stretch of Uvero Alto Beach in Punta Cana. The adults-only Live Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana is an architectural vision in paradise exuding total luxury, featuring natural stonework and wood detailing, well-manicured tropical gardens, covered pathways with cascading flora, and calming waterfalls. You’ll enjoy five-star treatment with top-notch amenities like a sparkling infinity pool, glamorous beach club, unique gastronomic experiences, and elegant accommodations.
