Share the article

Looking for the best new family resort in Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic? Let the new look of Bahia Principe Luxury Esmeralda surprise you! After several months of extensive renovations, the property now offers a fresh experience with modernized amenities and elevated standards. In fact, the 5-star hotel now boasts a sophisticated charm that draws its inspiration from the deeply rooted traditions of the Taino (indigenous people of the Caribbean), from the suites to the common areas and the fine dining restaurants.

What hasn’t changed, however, is its dreamy location on Bávaro Beach, one of the jewels of the Dominican Republic. This seaside paradise promises an unforgettable vacation for families! Here’s what you can (re)discover on your next sunshine break.

Is Punta Cana good for families? It is with the Transat family collection!

For a hassle-free holiday, our exclusive Family Collection can meet any family’s travel needs. So now Mom and Dad are enjoying a romantic sunset on the beach while their little ones are having a movie night at the kids’ club. Teens can post vacation highlights on TikTok with free WiFi. The Family Collection makes everyone feel welcome! Plus, it features a range of exclusive benefits such as:

  • A Kid’s Club (4 to 12 years old) with extended hours to give you a little break to relax
  • Access to on-site water park
  • Standard seat assignment so your family can sit together on the plane
  • Free WiFi

And at Bahia Principe Luxury Esmeralda, the first child under the age of 13 stays and eats free when booking a Junior Suite Deluxe Familly category.

Imagine taking a refreshing dip in the swim-up pool and creating precious solo memories with your eldest while the youngest enjoys a quiet siesta in the room behind you… This is just one of the many benefits of staying at the Bahia Principe Luxury Esmeralda. Here, all the details that aim to make your vacation easier for your family have been carefully put in place.
