Just 30 minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport on the famed Playa de Bavaro, a paradise has been built to welcome guests to the Dominican Republic. As one of the largest hotel companies in the world, Meliá Hotels International debuts its newest kingdom, The Grand Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real, a luxury, all-inclusive resort featuring 288 suite-style accommodations ranging from 800- to 3,000-square-feet.
