Inside Finest Punta Cana, The Dominican Republic's New All-Ages Crown Jewel

The Excellence Collection’s latest resort is all-inclusive, all-around fun for everyone. Here’s what we especially love.

Finest Resorts recently expanded its collection to the Dominican Republic, this time with serious attention to detail—from the luxury accommodations to fine dining to endless activities. Just the second property in the Finest portfolio, which is part of the highly regarded Excellence Collection, Finest Punta Cana is fresh, new, and ultra-modern with 455 all-suite rooms, 13 restaurants, 16 bars, and one of the island's grandest beaches.

The Finest suites are ultra-spacious and were designed for families who want to have fun. From the 950-sq. ft. family suites that sleep five to the 1,750-sq. ft. family suite with a private pool, all offer a welcome retreat after a day of fun on the beach. Junior suites are 800-sq. ft. and offer a range of options from a private swim-up pool to stunning ocean views. But it's the standard amenities that will make this an extra special and indulgent vacation, like in-room Jacuzzis, expansive terraces, and 24-hour room service. A mini bar stocked with beer, juices, soft drinks, water, and snacks keeps everyone happy—plus, there's a selection of premium liquors for the adults.

The Finest Imagine Kids Club is the ultimate indoor/outdoor playground. The age-appropriate rooms offer something for tiny toddlers to active pre-teens, including a babysitting service. A massive beachside pool complex features splash pools and games, and, designed with families in mind, the resort created monitored playrooms adjacent to the restaurants so parents can relax and linger over a meal while the little ones work off some energy. After all, there are 10 dining options to suit every palate, from the pickiest to the finest.

For those travelers looking for a bit more of an elevated experience, the Finest Club offers a few additional amenities for families including larger suite options. From private check-in to late check-outs to club-only dining options, guests will appreciate these added conveniences. For Club guests, it's all about access—access to private amenities including a lounge, pool, and exclusive beach area, with upgraded amenities like premium liquor and a broader room service menu. 

Simply put, the Finest Club is a great option for visitors who really want to be pampered and treated to a new level of luxury.

Traveling adults also have their own special place at Finest Punta Cana. The guest-spoiling Excellence Club offers the highest level of services and exclusivity for guests 18 and older. Away-from-it-all accommodations range from 800- to 2,500-sq. ft. with adults-only amenities that include a private lounge, two pools, two pool bars, and a private beach, as well as adult-only restaurants. Club guests will also appreciate the Bvulgari bath amenities. 

The resort's seven pools all offer daily guest participation activities while the Finest Punta Cana beach areas include chaise lounges for sunning along the seashore and large shaded palapas with Bali beds, all with concierge towel and bar service.

Guests can indulge at the ONE Spa with a full menu of treatments, but the hydrotherapy circuit is one of the best you'll ever experience. There's even a ONE Spa for kids with treatments and beauty experiences for the young ones. The fitness center is not your usual resort gym; it's equipped with professional quality machines and expansive workout areas. 

Finest Punta Cana was designed for the ultimate beach vacation with upscale accommodations and amenities for guests of all ages. You can choose to do it all... or do nothing at all. In luxury, of course.
