Stylish accommodations dreamed up by Oscar de la Renta
On-site dining is expensive
Sitting between Cap Cana Marina and Punta Cana International Airport along the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, Tortuga Bay appeases travelers with luxurious amenities. Not many resorts can advertise spacious suites designed by fashion icon Oscar de la Renta. Aside from the stylish decor, accommodations also boast balconies or patios, Jacuzzis, walk-in closets, kitchenettes and flat-screen TVs. Guests rave about the tasty (albeit expensive) food served on Oscar's signature tables at Bamboo Restaurant (as well as at the six other eateries within the Puntacana Resort & Club complex). But Oscar de la Renta isn't the only name guests will recognize: Avid golfers will likely jump at the chance to play one or both of Tortuga Bay's courses, designed by Tom Fazio and P.B. Dye. Meanwhile, relaxation-seekers can take advantage of the Six Senses Spa, which features a full menu of massages and body scrubs. But what travelers like most about this Leading Hotels of the World property is how different it feels from other Punta Cana resorts. Many vacationers say that the 1,500-acre reserve – maintained by the resort's ecological foundation – is a refreshing break from the overcrowded Bávaro beach hotel scene. And Leaders Club members you're in luck – this property grants perks like suite upgrades to rewards program participants.

Shuttered French windows that open to grand vistas of the sea and a cotton-white private beach are hallmarks of this luxury-villa enclave within the grounds of Puntacana Resort & Club that was originally designed by the late Oscar de la Renta, whose elegant style includes four-poster beds clad in Frette linens and breathtaking stone bathrooms. The minibar is stocked with premium liquors, and there's a desk and a huge flat-screen TV; you can rent a laptop, and Wi-Fi is free.

Travel + Leisure


Designed by Puntacana Resort partner and sometime resident Oscar de la Renta, Tortuga Bay's airy suites, in 15 freestanding villas, create an isolated oasis within the 15,000-acre resort. Its powder-white beach, pool area, and on-site restaurant are open only to villa guests.

Condé Nast Traveler


Explore the "exquisite grounds" of this Oscar de la Renta-designed property using the private golf cart assigned to each room. Bright, airy beachfront villas are "as good as it gets," with wicker furnishings, a palette of island colors, four-poster canopy beds, and villa concierges awaiting your call on the complimentary mobile phone.


In Punta Cana, it's almost impossible to rival the five-pearl Tortuga Bay Hotel for sheer luxury, VIP treatment, and boutique intimacy. The Oscar de la Renta (a locally legend, born in nearby Santo Domingo) designed property offers some of the chicest lodging on the entire island.
