A seriously luxurious adults-only stay at an all-inclusive, five-star resort on a private beach in the Dominican Republic – includes choice of suites, all with two-person Jacuzzis, plus a spa treatment, 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.
