Hotel details

Seemingly endless and dotted with swaying palms, the beaches of Punta Cana are some of the best beaches in the world and the Riu Palace Bavaro is the grand and upscale resort lucky enough to be on one of the nicest stretches. Away from the beach, this palatial retreat pampers with two sparkling pools, two whirlpools, 24-hour snacks and room service, a vast array of sports and entertainment choices, and fabulous restaurants offering fusion, Japanese, and Italian cuisine plus a buffet restaurant and steakhouse. And if that isn’t enough, guests also have access to three other neighboring Riu Resorts, the Pacha nightclub, and the casino at Riu Palace Macao.
