1. Head to a luxury resort
Let´s start with your haven of heavenly comforts that will become you to a home away from home during this romantic time. This needs to be somewhere luxurious and lavish to indulge both of your needs and desires and to spoil you both in a personalized way that makes you feel cared for.

2. Make plans for your partner
Try to think ahead about the experiences and things that you will enjoy during your romantic honeymoon in Punta Cana. Consider what your partner would most like to enjoy and try to include those things in your plans.
For example, if your soon-to-be spouse enjoys sunsets, you may plan out an evening where you can watch the sun go down together. Or alternatively, if your loved in is especially fond of dancing then you might book some dance lessons in the resort.
By keeping their likes and dislikes in mind during your planning process you prioritize their happiness right from the beginning and increase the joy you can both share throughout the vacation.
3. Upgrade to the best suite
For many honeymooners in Punta Cana, the suite that they select is going to be their own little private escape that they will keep returning to and may even end up being where they spend the majority of their time together after visiting the beach.
Therefore, it is essential that you have an expansive space in which to relax and unwind in luxury. Find a romantic honeymoon suite that is big enough for your continued enjoyment and look out for added amenities or perks such as jacuzzis, direct beach access, ocean views, and a large tv for those romantic movie nights.
In Finest Punta Cana some of the best suites for your honeymoon are going to be found in the Excellence Club suite category and will be described as honeymoon suites, Imperial suites, or two-story suites with a rooftop terrace. Though this is an all-ages resort, these adults-only club suites allow you to enjoy exclusive areas, suite upgrades, and a variety of other honeymoon enhancements.
4. Tell the resort concierge
When you are reserving your honeymoon suite it is always a good idea to make a mention of your honeymoon. This can be done through email or over the phone, however, you may also want to mention it when you go to check in at the resort to confirm that they already have that information. As the concierge is taking your reservation info, you can casually let them know that you are here for your honeymoon during the conversation.
Some resorts may have a complimentary honeymoon package that you qualify for or they may offer specific honeymoon upgrades that you can purchase. Either way, this is a good way to get the most out of your stay and to let the staff know that you are here for something extra special.
5. Request something special
If you got the honeymoon package as part of your reservation then you may already have a wide variety of special touches to enhance your experience as a couple. However, you should also remember that you are in a luxurious all-inclusive resort that is there to cater to your every wish.
Do not hesitate to ask the staff or concierge about anything special that you desire to have during your stay. Depending on what you booked, some additions may have an extra cost.
Want to organize to have a card for your spouse in the suite? How about asking the staff to take a photo to capture the moment? Or what about enjoying champagne and strawberries on the beach?
Ask your significant other what they would really like and do not hesitate to indulge all of their honeymoon wishes so that every second of this special vacation can be full of blissful inclusions.
6. Enjoy a romantic dinner
A romantic meal is often classed as the classic date experience. However, in Punta Cana, you can take it to the next level. You can make a reservation to enjoy a private meal on the pristine shores that Punta Cana is known for or delight in your favorite cuisine in one of the many other dining choices. Either way, a meal together is much more than just a time when you both eat.
Sitting across from each other as you hold each other’s gaze and talk gleefully over your ideal meal or cuisine can be as romantic as you want it to be. Plan out where you want to eat, what you want to enjoy, and what kind of ambiance or views you will have around you as you do so.
In Finest Punta Cana you have choices between multiple cuisine types and a wide variety of dining ambiances that range from beachfront beauty to a quaint Parisian-style cafe and even Japanese-type layouts.
7. Relax in the resort spa
Allow yourselves to unwind in utmost tranquility and peace. Destressing both your mind and body, you can enjoy couples treatments and therapies that allow you to relax and indulge your senses together and some of these can even be enjoyed by the turquoise waters of the islands surrounding oceans.
This can make the rest of your romantic honeymoon infinitely more luxurious and enjoyable as you have already taken the time to enjoy the spa and let all the anxieties of life melt away. However, not only will this affect your mind and spirit throughout the vacation but your body will also benefit from the soothing techniques and remedies that they offer.
Make sure you have a look at the spa menu before you visit so that you can already have an idea as to what you would both enjoy in the resort spa.
8. Make some beachfront memories
Most of all, take some time together to create moments that will last a lifetime. This may mean different things to different couples but essentially it should be about having fun together and creating opportunities for extremely romantic scenarios.
So whether you are walking along the beach as the sun sets, drinking martinis by the pool, or doing something together that you never imagined that you would ever do, take in every second of this journey together and do whatever makes your partner smile.
May you have an incredible time as you celebrate your honeymoon in Punta Cana.
