Riu Palace Punta Cana – Dominican Republic

 

This is a photo intense posting, so please be patient if the page is taking a little longer to load. Trust me, it’s worth the wait ;)

 

I finally had my first taste of an all-inclusive resort last week – it tasted mostly like jello. For whatever reason, I was loving it last week while I stayed at the Hotel Riu Palace Punta Cana. I ate jello for 4 days, who does that?? Aside from the delicious jello, the hotel was pretty sweet. The beach was even more amazing and stretched far beyond what I was willing to walk haha. That sun is serious business! My boyfriend, his family and I were in Punta Cana to attend his sister’s wedding. I love how relaxing the wedding was, simple and beautiful and all the important people were there to celebrate her big day.  Congrats to Jon & Holly! Shots from their wedding will be posted later.

So I’ve never experienced the wonderous world of all-inclusive resorts before and all of the eating, beaching, sleeping, swimming, snacking, sleeping, eating, sleeping and never having to get my wallet out. It was splendid! It also felt great to be disconnected for once and just slowing down and enjoying my fruit punch. I probably didn’t utilize the all you can drink aspect as much as others but I loved their fruit punch with pineapple and cantaloupe pieces. Not very exciting but MAN IT’S GOOD! I absolutely love the beach and being able to shoot there is that much better. Watching the sunrise on a beach is the only thing I will voluntarily get up at 6:00am for.  Aside from that I have a rule, friends don’t call friends before 10am. My friends know it haha. Overall, a fantastic week and I think I managed to get some pretty good shots. Like all vacations, the return to reality is the worst part. Or if you’re like me, you just deny it while topping off your fruit punch with a little blue umbrella! Yum! Hope you enjoy the photos! Leave a comment and let me know what you think! You can also take me on your next vacation and I will take the most beautiful jumping shot you’ve ever done :)

    Rocky Baloa - All are absolutely beautiful! I will, however, share a few thoughts:

    1. Third picture down; Did you put the cushion up? I don’t know about that cushion bein’ up, I gotta be honest. I look at it and think someone didn’t finish their job! I want to reach in and put it down like all the other ones! OCD!!!

    2. Jumping picture on the left, second one down (group shot) – the girl on the right isn’t really jumping! Funny, made me giggle.

    3. Beach shot under the tractor and Elvis gift shop – ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! One of my favourite beach shots of yours!

    4. You should apply to Sandals, they could use some updated travel books. The new ones we get at my house still have neon high cut swimwear and scrunchies! No joke!!!ReplyCancel
