Set along one of the Dominican Republic’s finest beaches, Secrets Royal Beach is an upscale, all-inclusive retreat for adults only. The resort’s all-inclusive privileges include limitless gourmet dining, top-shelf spirits and sophisticated suites with private hydromassage bathtubs. You can spend days relaxing on the beach, taking up water sports and luxuriating at the on-site spa. You can also enjoy daily activities and live entertainment, or simply lounge by the four pools – like the expansive freeform pool that overlooks the turquoise Caribbean Sea.

Secrets Royal Beach sits on the Dominican Republic’s paradisical eastern coast, surrounded by white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees and calm tropical waters. The property offers direct access to the picturesque Bavaro Beach, where you can enjoy romantic strolls, adrenaline-fuelled water sports and memorable snorkelling trips. You can freely access the facilities at the neighbouring sister resort, Dreams Royal Beach, or tee off at one of the local golf clubs. The closest course is at the Cocotal Golf and Country Club, around two miles from the resort, while the 18-hole Punta Blanca Golf Course is less than six miles away. From the resort, it’s around a 25-minute drive to Punta Cana International Airport.

The hotel’s spacious suites all feature a sitting area, a full marble bathroom, a complimentary minibar and a private balcony or terrace with a hydromassage tub. They are decorated in a contemporary style, with tasteful furnishings, elegant pendant lights and stretches of wood panelling. Some suites afford views of the Caribbean Sea, Swim-up Junior Suites enjoy direct access to a shared pool and select Junior Suites come with a private pool. Those looking to experience an even higher level of luxury should choose a Preferred Club Suite to enjoy special concierge service and exclusive access to two lounges and two club pools, including a fabulous lazy river pool set close to the beach.
