The adults-only Barcelo Bavaro Beach takes its namesake from the beach it sits on, consistently named one of the top beaches in Punta Cana. The resort features a coral reef that transforms the ocean into a natural swimming pool, ideal for a scenic destination wedding. Located within the Barcelo Bavaro Beach complex, this adult haven offers the luxuries and tranquility of a smaller resort while all the amenities of a mega-resort are available nearby, including a deluxe golf course and 24-hour casino. A wedding ceremony here would be that of one dressed in modern beachy decor amongst the tropical breeze.
Guests with children have the option to stay at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe, but if you choose a wedding ceremony venue within the adults-only section guests under 18 won’t be able to attend.
The disco offers a VIP section, which is great to book for wedding parties that want to continue after the reception.
For a unique gathering for small groups, book a wine tasting in the 8-person cellar.
