Escape to Paradise in Punta Cana at Tortuga Bay

After months of planning a stunning wedding with all of your closest family and friends in attendance, board a plane to paradise where you’ll find yourself wanting to stay awhile longer.

From the moment you step off your plane in Punta Cana, you’ll be treated like royalty. First, you will be escorted directly to the airport’s lounge where you will be greeted with a refreshing cold towel and water. Best of all, after a long journey post-wedding celebration, there’s no need to find your luggage or wait in a long line for customs. As a VIP, you and your new hubby will get to relax while everything is taken care of for you. Isn’t that nice?

Before you know it you will be unpacking for a week (or two!) at Tortuga Bay, otherwise known as paradise.


Tortuga Bay is the only AAA Five Diamond hotel in the Dominican Republic, offering understated elegance, privacy, and unparalleled personal service, with every convenience at arms length. Not to mention, the resort’s interiors were designed by the one and only Oscar de la Renta; talk about beautiful!

Upon arrival to Tortuga Bay, you’ll be greeted by your personal concierge who will assist you with checking-in and getting settled in your private villa. Your personal concierge will leave you with a  walkie talkie that you can use to contact the staff at any time during your stay. You will also be provided with your own golf cart for convenient travel throughout the resort. Bikes are also available upon request.

We recommend the Junior Suite, a 1-bedroom villa with a king-size bed — the perfect size for a party of two honeymooners!

Each villa features a spacious interior and balconies with magnificent views of either La Cana Golf Course or the crystal-clear blue Caribbean waters and white-sand beaches. All rooms include the finest Frette linens, kitchenettes, and luxurious, well-appointed coralline stone bathrooms. What more could you need!


We don’t know about you and your significant other, but here at Rocky Mountain Bride, we’re all about good food, good drinks and one heck of a good time! Lucky for you, Puntacana Resort and Club features 6 world-class eateries — there’s one for every occasion, mood and palette you can imagine.

Not looking to travel far from your villa? You can grab breakfast, lunch or dinner at Tortuga Bay’s Bamboo Restaurant, a AAA Four Diamond award-winning eatery. The unique menu offers a variety of options from tapas and sandwiches to fresh seafood and organically grown vegetables. You’ll leave satisfied and happy every time!

Another one of our favorite spots to dine is La Yola Restaurant, a AAA Three Diamond Award-winning eatery. This spot is perfect for a celebration dinner or fancier evening out due to its elegant setting. Located right on the Puntacana Resort & Club Marina, you’ll have the absolute best views of the water. And, you may be surprised with a fun mariachi band that plays at each table throughout the evening. Talk about romantic!

Staying awhile? You’ll never run out of options to enjoy:

Playa Blanca Restaurant

Tortuga Bay Lounge

Anani Restaurant

Brassa Grill and Bar

The Grill Restaurant

Ara Lounge

Mare Restaurant

Don’t worry, if you and your significant other don’t feel like leaving your villa, there are plenty of options for in-room dining. Simply contact your personal concierge to set it up a romantic night in.


When planning a honeymoon, many couples often debate whether to go somewhere to relax and unwind or somewhere filled with adventures and activities. That’s what we love the most about Tortuga Bay at Puntacana Resort and Club—you can experience both relaxation and adventure!

Get a Little R&R

Honeymooning at Tortuga Bay? You’ve hit the jackpot for relaxation because it is home to the only Six Senses Spa in the Americas. Enjoy spa treatments including, but not limited to, massages, facials, and body scrubs. Whether you book one treatment or multiple, the spa will become your oasis for the day where you can enjoy the saunas, steam room, relaxation room, yoga, and more! You’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. We recommend setting up treatments at the spa at the beginning and end of your trip to ensure you arrive and depart feeling your best!

Don’t forget, the best place for some downtime is right outside your villa doors! The white sand beaches are just a few steps away. Enjoy a good book and cocktail in the sun or nap in a beach chair to the sound of the ocean waves. Sometimes it’s truly about the simple things. We recommend a daily dose of Vitamin D and sand during your entire stay!

Set Sail on a Variety of Adventures 

Puntacana Resort and Club offers an endless amount of activities to experience during your stay. Home to two seaside championship golf courses, setting up a tee time is an absolute must if you and your hubby play golf. Or, enjoy a friendly match of tennis at the Oscar de la Renta Tennis Center.

For a fun day excursion, be sure to check out the Ojos Indígenas Ecological Park and Reserve—it’s just a short golf cart ride away. The Ecological Reserve is comprised of a network of trails that lead to 12 freshwater lagoons and provides habitat for an abundance of birds, reptiles, insects, and other local flora and fauna. This makes for a great day of exploring and adventure. The lagoons are perfect for swimming, floating, and jumping!

That’s not all! If you want, you and your significant other can pack your days full of fun! From Segway and helicopter tours to wreck diving and sunset cruises you’ll never run out of things to do. Try something new like kiteboarding or stick with what you know and go paddle-boarding, kayaking, or scuba diving. Countless adventures await. It’s as simple as contacting your personal concierge.
