Playa Arena Gorda
Higuey, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Distance from hotel to town, 6 miles (10 kms).

A superb beachfront Resort with a flair for decor and ambiance is located next to the Riu Palace, on a seemingly endless white beach. The name Bambu (bamboo), is a theme which creates a magical and exotic experience. The Moroccan style architecture, with mosaic domes, archways, and white columns with fanned palm trees, adds glamour and distinction, as a fine quality Resort. A magnificent pool with swim up bar shaded by another dome, faces the Caribbean. The lobby is sunshine yellow, with woodwork crafted and carved, and great hanging baskets of ferns and flowers. Comfy wicker and bamboo couches covered with banana leaf patterned cushions, and the slow motion of overhead ceiling fans, with the coolness of tiled floors, is a welcoming tropical setting.

From the moment you walk through the door at Riu Bambu, you'll experience the welcoming spirit of the Dominican Republic. This hotel is located within the Riu resort complex in Punta Cana, just footsteps from the authentic Caribbean Street area. The sports, activities, food, drink and nightlife available onsite and within walking distance are literally endless. The resorts two impeccable swimming pools, tennis courts and eight restaurants located throughout the resort complex make for both exciting days and nights that are sure to be unforgettable. With all-inclusive entertainment, sports and dining, your experience there will truly keep you coming back for more.
