Dive into a world of luxury and exclusivity with a stay at TRS Cap Cana, a dazzling jewel on the east coast of the Dominican Republic. Smaller and more intimate than the sister property, TRS Turquesa Hotel at the Palladium Hotels complex in Punta Cana, this hotel is for ocean lovers who want to get away from all distractions.
Where Is The TRS Cap Cana?
TRS Cap Cana is located in Cap Cana, a private gated community on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, about a 30-minute drive from Punta Cana. It’s in the province of La Altagracia and is part of the Punta Cana-Bávaro-Veron-Macao municipal district.
Set where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea, the coastline is stunning. Dotted with beautiful white-sand beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, and abundant coconut palm trees, it’s one of the Caribbean’s top vacation destinations.
The Cap Cana area is also renowned for its high-end amenities, including a marina, golf courses, and fine dining restaurants. With an exceptionally convenient location just 10 minutes away from the Punta Cana International Airport, TRS Cap Cana is an excellent choice for a quick Caribbean getaway from Northeast USA.
Is TRS Cap Cana all-inclusive?
Not only is TRS Cap Cana all-inclusive, with activities, meals, and drinks included in the price of your stay, but it’s a cut above. TRS is Grand Palladium Hotels’ adult-only luxury brand, so you can expect offerings to be a little extra. So, for example, drinks at TRS Cap Cana feature top-shelf liquors.
TRS Cap Cana, like other TRS Hotels, prides itself on offering its guests a sophisticated, adults-only all-inclusive experience, with a focus on personalized service, gastronomy, and relaxation.
What Age Is Considered Adult at TRS Cap Cana?
At TRS Cap Cana, as with many adults-only resorts, an “adult” is typically defined as someone who is 18 years of age or older. This ensures the resort maintains a tranquil and mature ambiance, offering a relaxing and serene experience for all guests.
When Was TRS Cap Cana Built?
TRS Cap Cana is a relatively new addition to the coveted Palladium Hotels Group. Although it initially opened its doors in 2015 as AlSol Tiara Cap Cana, the resort underwent extensive renovations and was rebranded as TRS Cap Cana, opening under the new name in 2018.
These renovations allowed the resort to enhance its offerings, providing guests with an elevated luxury experience synonymous with the TRS Hotels brand. Therefore, despite its original establishment in 2015, TRS Cap Cana, as we know it today, is a testament to the fusion of modern luxury and Caribbean charm since 2018.
First Impressions of the TRS
Like at the other TRS properties, guests are greeted with a refreshing drink and an invitation to sit and relax while check-in proceeds. The lobby is cool and comfortable, with a Caribbean style that whispers organic, sustainable, and ultra chic.
Rooms At TRS Cap Cana
There’s no such thing as a bad room at TRS Cap Cana; they all have great views, and every single one has at least a partial view of the Caribbean Sea. They all have balconies, some with jacuzzis, and some with terraces that front swim-up pools.
On our short getaway, we had a Junior Suite Poolside View. The decor was minimalist, with splashes of tropical color. The bed was a European King, and the room included a well-stocked mini-fridge and wine cooler. The bathroom was streamlined and elegant, with a shower sized for two. Oversized towels and L’Occitane toiletries underscored that these were luxury digs.
The balcony hung over a swim-up pool and offered sweeping ocean views. It’s a beautiful spot to sip a glass of wine under a starry sky, perhaps accompanied by a dessert tray sent over by 24/7 room service. Alternatively, order room service, and enjoy the intimacy and privacy of a moonlit dinner.
Besides the rooftop suites, the most popular guest rooms are the swim-up ones. And there’s no denying that it’s lovely to be able to step out for a midnight swim from your own terrace, or even to hang out all day at what is, in essence, the best of cabanas.
Still, there’s something to be said for the privacy afforded by the higher-floor balconies, and there’s certainly no lack of swimming pool access at this resort.
Dining At TRS Cap Cana
TRS Cap Cana offers four restaurants dispersed over two locations. Helios Beach Club, at the far end of the beach, serves all meals, as does Capricho which is located downstairs of the lobby. The other two restaurants, Argentine El Gaucho and Italian Tentazione, only serve dinner, and reservations are required for the latter.
A major difference between TRS Turquesa and TRS Cap Cana is that, if you like, you can easily walk to additional restaurants that are not part of the all-inclusive resort. TRS Cap Cana faces a marina, with a waterside path that leads to a fishing village, complete with a charming church. The entire area has the vibe of a Mediterranean village, and you could easily while away a lovely afternoon with a bottle of wine and tapas at the waterfront Turia or Barbudo Restaurants.
Things To Do At TRS Cap Cana
Activities at TRS Cap Cana center around the pools. There are a couple of them, one with a swim-up pool bar, another with a volleyball net. And there’s a small manmade beach too.
An ambitious fitness schedule might include Aqua Volleyball, Zumba, and Bachata lessons. Combine this with trips to the pool bar, and you might end up hoisting a piña colada to a salsa beat.
To soothe your senses and recharge your spirit, visit the Zentropia Palladium Spa. The rejuvenating treatments, inspired by ancient wellness traditions, provide a perfect end to a day of exploration. This spa is much smaller than the one at TRS Turquesa, but here, there’s no charge for aqua therapy. Access to the sauna and steam room is open to all TRS guests.
What To Do Near Cap Cana
Guests who fancy a round of golf are in for a treat. The Punta Espada Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, is nearby in Cap Cana. Known for its exquisite views and challenging holes, it promises an unparalleled golfing experience.
The tropical foliage next to TRS Cap Cana is part of the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Reserve where trails lead past stunning cenotes, and blue holes with underwater caves, where swimming is refreshing (and sometimes thrilling.) There’s even a gorgeous secluded beach, although currently marred by seaweed. Check out our post, things to do in Punta Cana, for more details.
One of the benefits of the TRS Cap Cana waterfront marina location is that you can easily board boats headed on fishing trips, snorkeling excursions, or visits to Scape Park. The Scape Park, a natural theme park, offers a day of adventure and exploration, while Los Establos invites you to connect with nature on guided horseback tours.
Finally, this wouldn’t be a Palladium Hotel without live music and shows. Here, again, the pool area takes center stage as night falls and performers share the music and dance of the Dominican Republic.
