Meliá—Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
At the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, Meliá Hotel, a lavish wellness-focused resort, welcomes guests to experience a sanctuary built on the coastline of iconic Punta Cana. Part of the Coconut Coast, an area known for its close to 20 miles of all-inclusive results, Meliá distinguishes itself by providing a visual and spirit-filled sanctuary for those seeking to begin a journey in self-development.
Enjoy one of the most captivating beaches in Punta Cana while you immerse in five unique spaces meant to invigorate the senses. Begin with exceptional dining options offering a gateway to nutrition. For breakfast, expect a variety of fruit choices, and low-calorie options like the egg-white omelet and avocado toast. For lunch and dinner, haute cuisine items are inspired by local and international flavors, resulting in a varied dining experience.
Thanks to the agreeable tropical weather, time outdoors is marked with picturesque sights. Make your way to the serene swimming pools and enjoy a cocktail while appreciating the surrounding lush palm trees. A walk down the beach promises to be reinvigorating, coupled with the swift, salty sea breeze. You can even enjoy yoga outdoors or at the resort gym!
One of the best places to free your mind is the YHI Spa, an “oasis of calm.” Offering sophisticated services, guests can choose from a wide range of treatments and massages. The cacao body scrub is one of the most unique services and smells divine. Here, guests are served warm tea before being enveloped in aromatic, ground beans. After washing off in an outdoor shower, guests are wrapped in an insulating sheet, head massage, and finally a moisturizing service. Another service making use of local resources is the larimar treatment, which aims to induce chakra restoration.
From its wellness suites with vitamin C-infused showers to meticulous resort design, Meliá is meant for those who are ready to travel roads of wellness and adventure.
