Scheduled to open in March, the new Eden Roc at Cap Cana is a collection of 34 freestanding suites and three oceanfront bungalows gracing the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic, 20 minutes from Punta Cana Int’l Airport. Eden Roc represents a new trend in Punta Cana hotel development revolving around smaller room counts, boutique design, EP pricing and bespoke service. The spacious and elegant accommodations feature private swimming pools, outdoor rain showers and spa areas, and dedicated golf carts. Suites range from 860 sf, with a 570-sf terrace, to 6,100 sf.
Amenities include three Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, five restaurants, a tennis facility and the private Caleton Beach Club. Golf is the big draw here for groups. With intricate fairways hugging the coastline, the Las Espadas course works its way around cliffs, waterfalls and beaches. We like the signature 13th hole which requires a tee shot over the ocean. For non-golfers, opt for an outdoor treatment by the resort’s private lagoon.
The spa features a freeform swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and hammam, while the spa menu includes handcrafted physiotherapy treatments and medicines using indigenous plants and herbs.
Restaurants celebrate the tastes of the tropics infused with international flavors and cuisine. Signature dishes will highlight classic Italian and French cuisine infused with local ingredients and spices. Groups can also host intimate dinners in the Riva Bar, inspired by the glamour of 1960s Monaco with vistas of the resort’s pool and gardens.
Two meeting rooms total 1,300 sf, while the Caleton Beach Club can host larger dinners for 100 pax.
“We want to create an ultra luxurious environment that hasn’t really existed before in Punta Cana,” says Daniele Trombacco, director of sales/marketing. “The idea is to really position Eden Roc as a destination itself, surrounded by 30,000 acres of absolutely phenomenal luxury and pristine beach and rainforest surroundings.”
