Tropical Destination: Royalton Bavaro
Looking for a tropical destination with loads of activities, restful relaxation and an inclusive price? The Royalton Bavaro is an all-inclusive resort perfect for couples, families and group getaways.
Many of you are parents, or have heavy work schedules. This may mean you have several weeks a year where you're looking for a dual-purpose getaway: A retreat to enjoy your romantic and relaxing time as a couple, but also a destination that your children will enjoy (and possibly have activities to entertain them as well). Sometimes, it's also desirable to have a destination for family reunions, weddings, or a change of scenery for the Holidays.
The Royalton Bavaro All-Inclusive Resort, Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, just might have what you're looking for. It's an all-inclusive resort, which means you stop worrying about the cost the second you arrive. They're luxurious yet laid-back, with a fun atmosphere that isn't too crazy or fancy; you won't encounter much of the Spring Break crowd here, and families with children are more than welcome; yet it's not as kid-centered as other family resorts. Royalton Bavaro offers many options for fine dining as well as poolside food trucks and casual eateries.
A very affordable Diamond Club upgrade gets you a personal concierge and all the services, bells and whistles that make you feel like a VIP. All of the accommodations are very well- appointed, but totally-worth-it upgrades include suites with swim out or ocean view balconies and in-room soaking tubs.
For activities, the Royalton Bavaro resort offers beachfront yoga, hydrotherapy and spa treatments for Mom, paddle boards and FloRider surf lessons for Dad, and minigolf, lazy river and splash park for the kids. Kayak and paddleboard rentals are available, but you might also leave the resort to snorkel and enjoy the local sandbar with a group (check out Nexus Tours or ask the concierge for a recommendation). If a family reunion or a special event is what you have in mind, get in touch with the resort's on-site event planner. Family vacation: solved.
