Tortuga Bay Hotel, Dominican Republic

A sun-drenched escape infused with the revitalizing spirit of life in the tropics.

TORTUGA BAY HOTEL, PUNTACANA RESORT & CLUB, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (20 January 2015) – Tortuga Bay Hotel, a breathtaking paradise on the sandy fringe of the ecological reserve of Punta Cana, offers unrivalled luxury, privacy, and five-star service. With villas decorated by Dominican Republic-native the late Oscar de la Renta, Tortuga Bay Hotel is a colorful vision of indigenous tradition and colonial influence, a Caribbean escape that captures the relaxed and revitalizing essence of life in the tropics.

On the far eastern coast of the Dominican Republic the secluded Tortuga Bay Hotel is a retreat within the larger Puntacana Resort & Club. Thirteen villas accommodate thirty suites lining a two-mile stretch of private Caribbean beachfront. In sunshine yellow, these idyllic villas nestle among towering coconut trees with unspoiled views to white sands and turquoise waters. Inside and out, light, airiness, and spaciousness evoke a sense of escapism.

The villas’ elegant interiors are an effortless composition of simplicity and sophistication infused with the spirit of the Dominican Republic. The style harks back to colonial times when Europeans established their new island homes, adapting their formal furniture and modes of living to suit indigenous materials and more relaxed local customs. In this tradition, Oscar de la Renta has set dark mahogany against fresh white and yellow walls, woven wood-and-rattan furniture made by local artisans against swirling Coralina stone floors, and botanical prints reflecting the exotic location against worldly accents such as the fine fabrics he designed for Lee Jofa. Four poster beds and deep-soaking Jacuzzi tubs are at the heart of these comfortable villas, while French doors open to private balconies, welcoming the Caribbean breeze.

Guests are provided with a dedicated concierge as well as a golf cart for easy travel to Puntacana Resort’s Six Senses Spa, marina, restaurants, shopping village, golf courses, and ecological reserve. Puntacana Resort is a vibrant destination closely connected to the local community and natural habitat of the region. Tortuga Bay Hotel is the exclusive, sun-drenched escape within.
