The Bavaro Princess is extraordinary in size, with over 96 acres of endless landscape, some of it tamed, some of it wild. Fanned -shaped palms, wandering peacocks flaunting their plumage, flowering trees, trails through mangroves, jungle with lagoons and natural springs, only begin to describe the abundance, of nature's beauty.
The main pool is so large, that an aerial view at close range can hardly depict the swimmers! Islands within the pool flourish with towering bamboo and a shallow end which spills without an edge like a lagoon, is perfect for children. The big bonus is the beach. It is magnificent, with miles of white sand, graced by hundreds of coconut palms.
Just 25 minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport on one of the best Carribean beaches.
