When luxury is part of a hotel name, it’s natural to wonder if the reality can live up to the hype.
With the addition of 144 swim-up suites at the adults-only Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar in the Dominican Republic, the name matches the reality.
The swim-up suites offer luxury indeed with comfort and style inside–king-sized beds, large bathrooms and spacious sitting areas—and a pool just steps outside sliding-glass doors.
The Pinero Group recently celebrated the re-opening of the five-star, 528-room Punta Cana hotel after a $26 million renovation that also included updates to existing restaurants.
“We trust that our strategic approach to restoring our hotels and their amenities will help us surpass guest expectations in a hospitality landscape that is more competitive than ever,” said Encarna Pinero, CEO of Grupo Pinero, which operates 14 hotels in the Dominican Republic. “Today’s travelers look for more than pristine beaches and stunning views.”
For water lovers especially, there’s nothing more luxurious than being able to walk out the door of your suite to take a quick dip after a late night out or an early-morning swim before your day begins. Each suite is connected to a long narrow pool that runs the length of the building. Outside each suite’s door is a small patio and steps down into the pool. The patios are separate, divided for privacy.
