Riu Palace Bavaro details

A beachfront location, a stylish pool scene and plenty of restaurants help the Riu Palace Bavaro to shine.

Two swimming pools head up the list of attractions at the Riu Palace Bavaro. One comes with a swim-up bar and whirlpool bath, and they’re flanked by palm-dotted gardens and chic, four-poster daybeds. Best of all, they’re just metres from Punta Cana’s white-sand beach if you fancy a change of scene.

Food-wise, you’ve got a buffet eatery and three à la cartes to choose from. At the stylish Japanese restaurant, skilled chefs prepare your nigiri and temaki to order. And the poolside grill serves up sizzling steaks and seafood. Pull up a chair at Krystal, the hotel’s fusion eatery, meanwhile, and you can enjoy Japanese dishes with a contemporary twist.

The bedrooms here feature mini lounge areas, so you get that extra bit of space. Minibars, coffee-makers and satellite TVs come as standard, and private balconies or terraces complete the picture. There are also Jacuzzi™ Suites for those who want to go down the luxury route – these sophisticated spaces come with open-air hot tubs.
