The Dominican Republic truly has it all. Whether you’re looking for stunning natural beauty, a rich culture like no other, or a wide range of exciting recreational activities, everything that you need for that perfect tropical retreat can be found in this fantastic country occupying the eastern end of Hispaniola. After a fun-filled week on the white sand coastlines of Punta Cana, the last thing anyone would want to do is say goodbye to it all. Thanks to the magnificent VIP lounges at Punta Cana International Airport, you’ll now have the opportunity to extend your vacation and make the most of the last couple of hours before your departure.
Currently, there are two VIP lounges at Punta Cana Airport—one in Terminal A and one in Terminal B. Therefore, no matter which airline you’re departing on, you’ll have the chance to relax to your heart’s content up to three hours before your flight back home—with an extra hour thrown in for free in the event of a delay.
Ready to purchase lounge access? Head on over to our Punta Cana airport page here, select the lounge in your departure terminal, and book your three-hour stay for US$39. It’s that easy. With LoungeBuddy, you can book up to two months in advance and get a discount off the walk-in rate, which is currently set at US$50.
Provided that capacity is available, DragonPass, Lounge Key, Priority Pass, and Lounge Club members can also gain access to these lounges.
From the moment you check in, you’ll be whisked off into a relaxing, air-conditioned area with everything you need to freshen up before your long journey home. Charge your phone and electronic devices using one of the many outlets available, and you’ll be all set for your flight. Then settle down, kick back, and relax on one of the many comfortable armchairs and sofas, tastefully upholstered in soothing colors designed to enhance your mood. The aesthetically placed flowers and foliage complement the abundance of wooden furniture and decor to invoke your inner biophilia, creating surroundings that are conducive to relaxation.
Because the airport operates both lounges, you’ll find an identical selection of food and drink options across the Terminal A and B locations (options subject to change). For breakfast, guests can enjoy a variety of delicious offerings, such as ham and cheese croissants, crunchy granola, cheese & yogurts, packed cereals, and vitamin-packed fruits. Later in the day, the selection will transition into more typical lunch and dinner foods, such as soup, cheese, hummus, focaccia, vol-au-vents, quiches, turnovers, skewers, wraps, sandwiches, pastries, and more. You can also choose to snack on mixed nuts, chips, olives, feta, or breadsticks.
Once you’ve satisfied your taste buds, it’s time to head over to the bar to grab something to drink. Coffee, tea, fruit juice, tonic water, and sparkling water are all available. There’s no better way to quench your thirst on a tropical warm day in Punta Cana than by sipping a cool glass of water. The complimentary drinks selection includes red and white wine, rum, and several brands of beer—choose from Canita, Corona, and Budweiser. If you’d prefer another option, or if you’ve exceeded your limit of two complimentary drinks per adult, you can purchase a premium drink (or one of the house drinks, in the latter case) for an additional charge. Premium options include wines (such as Cava), cocktails, and spirits (whisky, gin, vodka, tequila).
While airport lounges can be pretty impressive places in themselves, the Terminal B lounge has gone where almost no lounge has ever gone before—especially at this price point.
That’s right—one of the most exciting amenities in airport lounge history—an outdoor swimming pool! Indulge your poolside passion, head for a quick swim, and watch the planes take off into the horizon. Even if you’re not the type to be impressed by novelty, you’ll surely appreciate the fun of a swimming pool, especially if you’ve brought some awesome inflatable pool toys along on your trip.
Whether you envision yourself chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool, or shooting great selfies right next to the pool, the Punta Cana VIP Lounge is a great way to end your trip on a relaxing high note. Your airport oasis awaits—all you have to do now is book.
