Mixing music with luxury, there’s something exciting about staying in a Hard Rock Hotel. And if the Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana is anything to go by, we can see why.
This accommodation is so much more than a themed hotel – everything is VIP here from its opulent in-room fittings to its first-class pool scene. So live it up rock ‘n’ roll style and find out why this Hard Rock hotel ticks all the boxes.
A Caribbean postcode
There’s a long list of things we love about this hotel, but its Dominican Republic location is one of the most alluring.
Situated in Bavaro overlooking the beach, you’ve got some impressive morning views to look forward to. And we don’t mean any shoreline either – we’re talking about Macao Beach’s miles upon miles of white sand.
Drenched in luxury
This is no average All Inclusive resort, at the Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana everything is presented to the highest of standards.
All rooms and suites come equipped with deluxe features including a double hydro spa tub, a liquid dispenser and a 32-inch flatscreen TV. And on top of that, you get to take advantage of a turndown service and 24-hour room service, a must on any luxury holiday.
In terms of decor, the whole place has a glitzy Vegas-feel to it. Candle-lit pool areas come evenings, LED screens everywhere and spotless marbles floors – now that’s what we call show-stopping interiors.
With 15 bars, 13 pools, nine restaurants and 1,800 rooms all spread across an impressive 121 acres, you’ve got plenty of choice too. Now throw in a few plush touches like first-class spa treatments and a delectable dining scene, and you’ve got the ultimate star-studded stay.
The rock star appeal
Rock memorabilia adorn the walls in every form here, from guitars, clothing and art, as well as swanky car displays. Plus, the music theme is present throughout the hotel so you can expect rockstar fun of every kind.
Whether you’re after superstar spa treatments, or prefer VIP nightclub experiences, you’ll be living like a celebrity in no time. In fact, the hotel’s nightclub, Oreo, is one of the best clubs in the Dominican Republic and attracts clubbers every night with its state-of-the-art lighting and international DJ sets.
The Rock Spa is just as impressive – lagoons, two whirlpools, a steam room, sauna, hydro-reflexology, sensory pool, and a cutting edge ice room – Hard Rock hotels offer a pampering session like no other.
Just like its superstar guests, the Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana hotel has a no expense spared attitude. This is evident through its fantastic live music and celebrity golf course designer, yes, Jack Nicklaus was the mind behind the hotel’s fantastic green.
If you’re an inspiring musician, you can enjoy a real rockstar experience with PICKS®. Choose from 20 different guitars and rock out in your own pop-up studio, and even better, it will be located in your guest room.
What’s more, did you know that you can create your own personalised Hard Rock soundtrack? Well, with Tracks® you can build a playlist based on your holiday style, whether you like to stay active or chill out by the pool.
Loaded with activities
When it comes to filling your time, there’s never a dull day at this hotel.
For those who love relaxing, the pool scene here is second to none. With 13 pools bordered by a canal, you’ve got your pick of swimming spots and they all differ slightly. Some are livelier than others with waterslides and lazy rivers, while others come equipped with swim-up bars and bail beds.
Families are taken care of too with a bunch of activities perfect for mini musicians. The Little Big Club is the place to leave the children when you’re craving a little me time.
But this is no average kids’ club, things are done a little differently here, and by that we mean children will get to enjoy a whole host of interactive activities with the chance to sing, dance and dress up with their favourite onscreen characters including Bob the Builder, Angelina Ballerina and Thomas and Friends.
Alternatively, for those seeking more energetic days, there’s plenty to get involved in whether it’s a game of volleyball on the beach or water basketball in the pool. And if you want more family-based activities, a round of mini-golf is always on the cards.
From signature cocktails to mouth-watering plates
Indulging is a huge part of your stay, and with nine restaurants covering a wide range of cuisines, every night comes with a different flavour.
Try delicious pizzas from a traditional brick-oven in the Italian restaurant, head to the Japanese eatery for some show-cooking and for all things Caribbean, Isla’s fresh fish dishes are prepared to perfection.
There are also three buffet restaurants and a couple of snack options for those who like to try a range of cuisines. The Hard Rock Punta Cana is also big on ice cream, housing its very own parlour. Known for their handmade treats and unique flavours, make sure you don’t skip dessert.
In-room dining is also an option – very rock ‘n’ roll, right? So, for those times when it’s just too much effort to get dressed, you can order in, and it doesn’t matter what time you do it either. With 24-hour room service you can enjoy a tasty snack at any hour of the day.
Like the food, your drinks options are just as varied. With 15 bars you can enjoy carefully crafted cocktails in a beautiful setting or opt for something a little more casual with a local beer in the sports bar. Need your early morning caffeine fix? Then Must Sweet & Coffee offers a wide range of delicious coffees.
Evenings at the Hard Rock Punta Cana can be as lively or laid-back as you wish. Families can take advantage of things like movie nights and quizzes, while grown-ups can party the night away in the hotel’s top-of-the-range nightclub.
The hotel has also played host to some fantastic gigs from the likes of Sting and Justin Bieber, so you can always plan your trip around any upcoming concerts. But if you don’t get to witness any celebrity performances, don’t worry, the hotel hosts legendary events every night of the week from after-dark pool parties to a Michael Jackson tribute and live music.
You’ll also find the largest casino in the Dominican Republic. That’s right – at an impressive 45,000-square-foot, you’ll feel like you’re in Las Vegas. Bring your best gambling techniques and take a risk with a game of roulette, or blackjack even.
