A seriously luxurious adults-only stay at an all-inclusive, five-star resort on a private beach in the Dominican Republic – includes a choice of suites, all with two-person Jacuzzis, optional club access and travel

The glorious sun, sea and sand of the Punta Cana coast has long been canonised as the best in the Caribbean, but the adults-only Excellence El Carmen takes holidays here to a whole new level. This tropical enclave ticks all the boxes for those who want to escape the stresses of daily life and embark on a holiday to remember, with a high-design concept that effortlessly marries beach chic with five-star luxury. The exclusive ambiance continues in the contemporary suites - which boast either ocean views or plunge pools - where you can choose to take a dip in your private in-room Jacuzzi.

Within the vast tropical grounds of the Excellence El Carmen, you’ll find 23 pools, each as sensational as the next, 16 cafes and bars, 12 restaurants whose first-rate cuisine spans the globe, from casual Caribbean grills to sophisticated French bistros, and a world-class spa and fitness centre. Days can be spent as leisurely or as actively as you wish – enjoy a morning yoga session or kick back on a four-poster lounger before an afternoon taking advantage of the activity programme, offering everything from scuba diving and snorkelling excursions to Spanish lessons, cooking classes and dance tutorials. You can see why this paradise retreat has bagged itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.


Junior Swim-Up suites with in-suite Jacuzzi are located on the ground floor, and offer direct access to a private pool connected to a main shared pool. A furnished terrace with two sun beds and a spa jet come as standard, as do a king-size bed, L-shaped sofa, oversized Jacuzzi for two, and a full bathroom with rain shower.

Excellence Club Junior suites with ocean views and in-suite Jacuzzi feature comfy king-size beds with a private balcony or terrace looking out onto glittering views of the Caribbean Sea. You'll find your oversized Jacuzzi in the en-suite bathroom. If you opt for this suite, you'll enjoy access to a long list of Excellence Club benefits, which include private check-in and check-out; access to a private lounge (7-11am), bar and restaurant; Bvlgari toiletries; upgraded minibar and room service menu; access to a private beach area plus 12 private pools and seven Jacuzzis; a newspaper in your room each day; a beach bag for use during your stay; shoe shine service; daily fruit and petits fours in the room; fresh flowers and sparkling wine in your room on arrival; a Nespresso machine; express room service and more.

With a whopping 12 restaurants and bars plating up dishes and serving up drinks that look as sensational as they taste, Excellence El Carmen really lives up to its name when it comes to dining. Whether you fancy Mexican or Italian, you’ll be catered for here – choose between grand dining rooms serving gourmet French cuisine, beach shacks cooking up fresh lobster, underground caverns showcasing pan-Asian dishes or cosy front rooms offering platters of tasty tapas. If you fancy something a little more laid-back, head to the Shark Bar food truck for a quick – but equally fabulous – burger or taco, or head to the casual Sports Bar where a bottle of beer and portion of fries is the order of the day.


Inspired by the elements with a decor and ethos that enhances the mind, body and spirit, Miilé Spa is a true haven of tranquillity. Alongside the heavenly whirlpools, hydrotherapy tubs, saunas, steam rooms and various showers – ranging from tropical rain to Cuban – you can also treat yourself to an indulgent spa treatment, either in a private room or on the outdoor relaxation patio. There’s also a state-of-the-art gym and fitness centre, 607-metre jogging course and fantastic selection of yoga classes for those who want to keep active.


Set amid a gorgeous palm grove on the fringes of a secluded stretch of golden sand, Excellence El Carmen enjoys a postcard-worthy location on the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, just a short drive from the resorts of Punta Cana. It’s fair to say that it’s the beaches that are the main attraction on this part of the coast, which rival those anywhere else in the Caribbean both in terms of their soft, white sand and warm azure waters. The area is also known for its world-class golfing, and you’ll find four first-rate courses within a 30-minute drive from the hotel. Punta Cana International Airport is 43 kilometres away.
