A seriously luxurious adults-only stay at an all-inclusive, five-star resort on a private beach in Dominican Republic – includes an ocean-facing rooftop suite with private pool, club access, spa treatments 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 two-storey rooftop suites, where you can choose to take a dip in your private plunge pool or in-room Jacuzzi.

Within the vast tropical grounds of the Excellence, 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.


Set over two storeys and boasting 1,600 square feet of space in which to unwind, the rooftop terrace suites ooze decadence. Inside, you’ll find super-cool interiors decked out in calming, neutral hues, featuring all the amenities you’d expect of a five-star hotel – the gorgeous bedroom boasts a large bed with choice of pillows, the bathroom offers a double rainforest shower, and you’ll find an oversize Jacuzzi for two in the stylish living area. But the star of the show is the outside terrace complete with private plunge pool, where you can enjoy a dip and a glass of fizz (from your complimentary minibar) while marvelling at the sensational ocean views.

You've 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 complimentary newspaper in the room each day; a complimentary beach bag for use during your stay; shoe shine service; daily fruit and petits fours in the room; fresh flowers and sparkling wine in the room on arrival; a Nespresso machine; express room service and more.

With a whopping 12 restaurants plating up dishes 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 Michelin-star-worthy 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 laidback, 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 décor 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’ll also enjoy a 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, 607m 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-glass golfing, and you’ll find four first-rate courses within a 30-minute drive from the hotel. Punta Cana International Airport is 43km away.
