It’s one of the hottest things going on in the world of Caribbean all-inclusives, a concept which itself is the biggest in travel right now.
We are, of course, talking about the bathroom.
If there’s a new all-inclusive in development in the Caribbean, chances are pool rooms will be front and center, whether it’s a revamped Sandals or a new one. Margaritaville Island Reserve.
And it’s easy to see why: there are few amenities nicer than having direct access to the pool from your room, the kind of thing that turns an ordinary room or suite into something very, very different. .
During the day, it’s a great way to cool off, and it’s also perfect for extending the evening.
It also makes your room feel bigger: the lap pool enlarges your balcony, giving a wider and more endless feeling to your view.
Unless you have your own villa or your own private pool, it’s very hard to do better.
But not all bathrooms are the same, especially in the pool epicenter of Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
Pools abound in the all-inclusive capital of the Caribbean; but at larger resorts, they usually have a downside: There isn’t always much privacy, especially at larger resorts where pool rooms are set over long, river-style pools.
That brings us to our favorite bathrooms in all of Punta Cana: those at the new Lopesan Costa Bavaro.
Lopesan, a resort that has emphasized cutting-edge design, has some rather unique pools.
Instead of being set in endless pools with rows of rooms next to each other, there’s more of a boutique feel, with a series of individual pools, all with just a handful of rooms with access.
This means that most of the time you have the whole pool to yourself and instead of sharing a pool with dozens of neighbours, you feel a sense of independence.
Even better? They are extremely well appointed, offering a level of privacy and serenity that you simply won’t find in other bathrooms in the area.
Even in a resort of over 1,000 rooms, you feel like you’re in your own private villa. And it is not an easy thing to achieve.
This is the pool, redefined and the perfect getaway for couples in Punta Cana.
