From Junior Suites to private villas accommodating up to eight people, the accommodations offer diverse environments that cater to various preferences.

There are additionally six restaurants with diverse culinary concepts, from international and healthy options to Mediterranean, fusion Nikkei, steakhouse, and, of course, traditional Dominican gastronomy.

Good to know: Grupo Piñero has embraced innovation and sustainability across all aspects of this new space to protect the ecosystem and minimize ecological impact.

Recognizing the importance of safeguarding this natural habitat, Grupo Piñero's Eco-Bahía Foundation is working in close collaboration with local non-governmental organizations such as CEBSE and FUNDEMAR to actively conserve and restore the delicate coral reefs that thrive in these waters.
