The only thing separating the Catalonia Royal Bavaro from an ice-white stretch of sand is a forest of palm trees.
With a private beach, a first-class pool scene and a great range of restaurants, this adult-exclusive hotel covers all bases. You also get an access-all-areas pass to the neighbouring sister hotel.
There are all sorts of luxurious rooms on the cards here – from big suites with private pools to junior suites with king-size beds. And they all have balconies or terraces with linen hammocks.
A long infinity pool overlooks the beach. And right in the heart of the grounds is a second pool with a whirlpool bath.
The beach is typically Caribbean, with sunbleached sands, swinging hammocks and a laid-back cocktail bar.
FOOD & DRINK
This place takes its All Inclusive status seriously. Alongside the main buffet restaurants, there are 4 à la cartes to choose from, plus a snack bar.
The sister hotel, the Catalonia Bavaro, adds an extra 6 restaurants to the mix. Mediterranean, Italian and Japanese cuisine are all present.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
The roll call of activities includes an introductory golf lesson, catamaran sailing, snorkelling and scuba diving lessons in the pool.
Evening entertainment is easygoing, and features local musicians and dance acts. Things liven up once a week, when a late-night party takes place on the beach.
There’s regular entertainment in the hotel’s open-air theatre. You can also make use of a pocket-sized casino and a late-opening disco.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
Couples’ massage rooms, hydro-massage showers and a Turkish bath headline at the sea-view spa*.
In terms of spa treatments, you can book in for the likes of hot stone therapy and hydrating body wraps.
There's a range of spacious junior suites here and they'll all include air-conditioning, a king-size bed and a rollaway bed when there are 3 people, Wi-Fi and a balcony or terrace. Superior and deluxe junior suites are available. Plus newlyweds should try the deluxe honeymoon junior suite. And if you'd like the pool to yourself then opt for a junior suite with private pool.
