Christmas in the Caribbean


Dec. 17, 2019, 1:38 p.m.

Who hasn't dreamt of spending Christmas in the Caribbean? There's no doubt that this is one of the great pleasures we've all thought about at some time, especially when we get carried away by the desire for a well-deserved holiday.

As we know it, Christmas is associated with family get-togethers in a truly wintery setting. And that's definitely endearing. But, to be honest, it's also associated with lots of obligations and implicit commitments: Christmas shopping, preparing big lunches, finding the best presents possible or doing the round of never-ending visits... That's why the tempting image of lying on a heavenly beach basking in the warm temperatures of the Caribbean is always welcome. An image that can become true if you choose to visit one of the Sirenis Hotels & Resorts in Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) and Riviera Maya (Mexico).

A decision that's as simple as it is tempting. Let's take some time to picture arriving in a dreamlike destination surrounded by unspoilt nature and with all the luxuries and home comforts at your fingertips. That's what Sirenis resorts are like, exemplary facilities that boast all the ingredients to make your stay an unforgettable experience from the minute you get there.

You can dine at themed restaurants with an array of influences, led by expert chefs who will delight your senses with their most creative proposals. A relaxing Caribbean-style lunch or a romantic dinner at a French restaurant are just a couple of your options. At other times of relaxation, you can sip on a great cocktail or a juice on the beach, in the pool or at any of the terraces and bars dotted around the resorts, in the sun or in the shade, while you count down to Christmas Day without a care in the world.

If you fancy a bit more movement, the sports facilities are perfectly equipped and fully staffed for you to enjoy a range of outdoor activities. You can put on your snorkelling gear and dive into a privileged natural environment, with seabeds rich in corals and marine fauna. Or you can explore beaches and coasts by kayak or have a go at sailing. At-oneness with nature is one of the most characteristic features and attractions of the Sirenis resorts.

Travelling as a family? The little ones will have a great time at the Aquagames in Punta Cana, a spectacular facility full of water attractions of all kinds: slides, tubes, children's pools, mini clubs, and much more. If you chose to go to the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort, the kids will flip out at Dolphin Discovery when they see the four bottlenose dolphins swimming around in its waters. Or the Kids Club, designed for children to have great fun and adults to unwind, thanks to the team of specialised staff that takes care of their safety and entertainment.
While back home your friends will be putting on a big coat, you'll be slipping into your flip flops and exploring the beaches around our resort, or signing up for some of the trips to the most iconic attractions in the area, either in Punta Cana or in Riviera Maya. Picture-postcard towns, fishing villages, spectacular cenotes, Mayan ruins, natural parks... the list to choose from is endless.

Back at the resort, you can pamper yourself with a massage or a beauty treatment. There's nothing better before going out to dinner than feeling comfortable and perfectly relaxed. And so, between cocktails and excursion, between swims and dinners, you'll experience the build-up to Christmas Day or New Year's Eve. Of course, these occasions are celebrated in style at Grand Sirenis Punta Cana Resort and Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort.

All you have to worry about is topping up your tan and deciding what to wear at night. Everything else is included.

So, having thought about it, there's no better option, is there? This year, your best and most deserved gift is a Caribbean Christmas!
