It has been ten days since we arrived in the Dominican Republic– we didn’t intend to stay this long, but we love the people here, the lifestyle and the fresh fruits and vegetables which you can get for a very low price, so we’re planning to stay longer. Since the day we got here, we’ve just been working on boat projects and my online clients non-stop!
We thought we needed a break, so we decided to have a staycation for four days at Hideaway of Royalton which is a part of the bigger hotel called Royalton Punta Cana. I know you’ve been wondering who’s taking care of Ahab. Don’t worry because we found him a trusted pet-sitter who updated me about him all the time while we’re on our little getaway! 🙂

Members of the Diamond Club™ could also choose between the Luxury Ocean View Room, Luxury Suite which has a semi-private swimming pool, Honeymoon Suite with a jacuzzi which could still be upgraded to one with an ocean view.
We had the Luxury Ocean View Room and waking up to such a good ambiance and atmosphere made us feel yayamanin again. The room has plenty of natural light coming in which we love. It has a ceiling mounted rain shower and satellite television which we’ve missed a lot (living on a sailboat means you have to give up these little luxuries!). Their premium handcrafted DreamBed™ gave us the most-relaxed sleep we had in months. I seriously want to take this bed home if it could fit in our sailboat haha.
We were treated like Diamond Club™ members. We had an exclusive á la carte restaurants and bar, in addition to a shimmering pool and pristine beach area for the sole use of Diamond Club™ guests.
We were also able to access the dedicated bar forDiamond Club™ Members and waiter service, private Diamond Club™ lounge access, and had an upgraded room service menu.
P.S. We even had our own butler!

We got access to Dorado Restaurant (which is exclusive for Hideaway guests) where I had steak for lunch and dinner. It’s so good it melts in the mouth! Since it’s an all-inclusive resort, we can eat whenever and wherever we want. The best part is every time we return to our room; they have bottles of drinks for us- red wine, champagne, Bombay Gin, and a lot more!
The service was beyond excellent, and we really appreciate everyone especially Angelo (the bartender) and Luddy (at the Dorado restaurant). They made us feel at home to the point that whenever we arrive, they already know what we want to drink or the appetizer we want to eat! Haha.
