Tortuga Bay is located in the vast Punta Cana Resort and Club, which was the first hotel to be built in the area in 1978 and which offers all of its facilities to guests staying at the Tortuga Bay. In fact, the entire coastline, which extends for 25 mi is named for the resort. So it's first come, first served: guests can take advantage of the best beach in Punta Cana: completely isolated, there is no other hotel on the horizon other than the Club Med. Also interesting to know, the airport in Punta Cana, located just 6 mi away, is also owned by the Resort and guests can even check in for their flight at reception!
Tortuga Bay is home to the unique Caribbean Six Senses Spa, one of the most prestigious spas in the world. It is located in the beach club that includes a second swimming pool, the restaurant 'L'Entrecôte de Paris', and the Cana Golf Course. The spa includes 8 double treatment and massage rooms (notably Thai massage), a sauna, a steam room, and a whirlpool. However, these facilities, which are standard fare in any spa, take on a particular dimension here: the spaces are beautiful and the atmosphere is unique, with every sense being stimulated (by the intoxicating fragrance, the view, the candles, rose petals, and the soft, relaxing music). In short, it is the ideal place for couples on their honeymoon! Some treatments and massages are provided under palapas on the beach right beside the water, where guests are lulled by the rolling waves.
One of the highlights of the resort is its ecological park, which can be explored on a Segway, an amazing ecological means of transport where the user remains standing and manoeuvres the machine just by moving his/her body: fun and laughter are guaranteed! The park includes a ranch, plantations, native rhinoceros iguanas, woodpeckers (you can hear them tapping the tree trunks), and 1.5 mi of trails in the rainforest that lead to 5 freshwater springs where you can swim with the fish and the turtles!
It should be noted that, in 2011, the Tortuga Bay was given the AAA Five Diamond Award, the most coveted title in the hospitality industry in North America.
