If you’ve been thinking about taking a trip to Punta Cana or the Dominican Republic, we’ve found you the perfect reason: Punta Cana International Airport’s new VIP lounge. Forget what you know about airport VIP lounges, because this is far from your ordinary one. So what is it about this new lounge that redefines airport luxury?
For one, the new VIP lounge comes equipped with an outdoor infinity-edge pool. Yes, you read that right. It’s the first of its kind in the Western Hemisphere, rivaling those in places like Asia and the Middle East. The lounge, which is slated to open in December and just in time for the holidays, was designed by local architect Antiono Segundo Imbert. The lounge features swanky floor-to-ceiling windows, and the pool deck overlooks the tarmac so you can check out all the planes taking off.
The ultra-exclusive lounge is open to elite status flyers and priority pass members on participating airlines, and day passes are also available to those who just want to experience a taste of the lounge’s luxury. Moreover, the airport is set to implement preclearance to all travelers from the United States, which permits them to clear border protection before flying. We call that a win-win situation.
