Luxury for the whole family at Tiara Exclusive Collection by Club Med Punta Cana

On the breathtaking island of Hispaniola, Club Med welcomes the whole family to their newly renovated, eco-chic TIARA EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION SPACE located inside the luxury, all-included Club Med Punta Cana resort.

Imagine waking up to the buttery pastries and sweet fruit of a continental breakfast brought to you in your private, pastel-hued bungalow. Before the kids get up, wrap yourself in a crisp white bathrobe and fuzzy slippers, and savour a freshly brewed cup of coffee while looking out on breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea.

Spend the morning working on your swing at the Corales 18-hole golf course. It is, after all, home of the PGA championship and one of the best courses in the world. Meanwhile, the kids are having the time of their lives, learning to juggle, climb silks, and do the flying trapeze with the experts at Club Med CREACTIVE by Cirque du Soleil, a must-try experience for every kid or  kid-at-heart.

The entire family reconnects at lunch at La Samana. There is something for everyone at this international buffet. Spend the afternoon sunning and frolicking in the warm turquoise waters of this panoramic stretch of white sand beach. In the late afternoon sun, be welcomed back to Tiara with a glass of champagne at the private Tiara Bar and spend the remainder of the daylight with the family at the exclusive oceanfront infinity pool with full-service bar for afternoon drinks and snacks.

Before heading back to your room, stop by the private concierge desk to book an appointment for tomorrow at the luxurious, Provence-inspired Club Med Spa by L’OCCITANE. Let the sound of the lapping ocean melt your every worry away when you treat yourself to a signature oceanfront bath or massage. 

Back at your bungalow, the kids rush to their room while you retreat to your bedroom with private bath and freshen up using the soothing in-house L’OCCITANE toiletries then enjoy an evening cocktail thanks to the fully stocked minibar at arm’s reach. 

At the end of a long day filled with fun, sun and exploration of Club Med Punta Cana’s activities, it’s a relief to return to your private cottage perched on the edge of the beach and protected by lush vegetation. Every element of the updated design and decor – such as wooden accents, watery-toned linens, and wall sconces resembling a fisherman’s lantern – is a reflection of the  local culture and helps to create connection between the outdoors and interior. Serene surroundings and plush beds with under-mounted lights give you the illusion of floating in the sea as you fall into a peaceful sleep, readying you for the next day’s adventure.
