Enjoy magnificent natural surroundings, lagoon-style pools, and a matchless golden sand private beach, all in a tropical Caribbean atmosphere. Here you’ll find pure relaxation and privacy, thanks to low-rise buildings, expansive suites and bespoke service that provides an outstanding ‘home away from home’ experience. The hotel is built in a classic Caribbean style, with two enormous pools that wind through the grounds. There are 11 restaurants to entice you with a range of global cuisine, plus 12 bars, each with its own personality, a world-class spa, state-of-the-art fitness centre and an exceptional range of activities and services.
The hotel is situated in the Uvero Alto region on the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic. It’s 26 miles from the city centre and 28 miles from Punta Cana International Airport. The entire resort is enveloped by an extensive palm tree grove bordering a sandy beach. There are three excellent golf courses within easy driving distance, Punta Blanca, White Sands and Iberostar. Should you tire of Excellence’s private beach then nearby Bavaro Beach (24 miles away) is a tempting option. It easily ranks among the best beaches in the Caribbean. Macao Beach is even closer (eight miles), offering powder white sands and crystal-clear waters. There’s plenty of scope for water activities here too, from snorkelling to body boarding. The Rio Maimon Natural Park is worth visiting to witness the point where the river meets the ocean. Inland lies the Eco Park Punta Cana, 12 miles away, which makes for a fun day out, or for a shot of adrenaline try the Hacienda Tuko Zipline, which is 20 miles away.
