Hit the beach in Punta Cana

Trade in your tropical screensaver for the real deal when you head to Punta Cana! This tropical oasis in the Dominican Republic is famous for its pristine beaches, turquoise waters and all inclusive resorts, making it the perfect destination for a sun-and-sand getaway. Kick back and relax by the shores of world-famous Bavaro Beach, Uvero Alto Beach or Macao Beach and forget all your worries as you work on your tan. We also recommend booking an excursion to Saona Island, a desert island off the coast, where you can spend the day at an exclusive beach club.

Where to stay:

For an adults only option: Plan a grown-ups-only beach getaway on Uvero Alto Beach at Royalton CHIC Punta Cana Resort and Spa, exclusively for guests aged 18+. Dance the day away by the outdoor DJ booth, take a dip in the unique Mermaid Pool and nap under a shady palapa on the beach.

For an all ages option: Stay right on the shores of popular Bavaro Beach at the luxurious Royalton Punta Cana Resort and Casino. After a stroll along the endless stretch of white-sand beach, you can head to the sprawling water park at Royalton Splash next door, with unlimited water park access included in your stay.

Explore the great outdoors in Jamaica

Admire Jamaica’s natural beauty and enjoy the fresh air on your next getaway! With colder days around the corner, it’s getting harder and harder to spend time in the great outdoors back home – but in Jamaica, the weather is always perfect for outdoor exploration. From the majestic mountains of Montego Bay to the rocky coastline of Negril and the magnificent waterfalls of Ocho Rios, the only time you’ll be spending inside on your island getaway is when you go to sleep after an action-packed day of adventure.

Where to stay:

For an adults only option: Hideaway at Royalton Negril provides an exclusive adults only oasis with access to the larger Royalton Negril complex. Lounge by the private Hideaway pool or beach area and dine al fresco on the patio at Hideaway’s Ocean Point Bistro, serving fine French cuisine.

For an all ages option: After a day spent exploring the island, head back to Royalton White Sands Montego Bay. Enjoy a relaxing float along the winding lazy river or kick back and relax on the private island just off the resort beach before refuelling at one of the gourmet on-site restaurants.
