What’s New? First Club and Beach Area Renovations!

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better at the Occidental Grand Punta Cana, we are working on much more than you expected: As part of Grand Punta Cana’s $1.4 million renovation, we’re renovating our First Club and Beach Area! 

We are so proud of all the changes that we couldn’t wait to share them with you!

From the moment you enter our new First Club, you’ll know that “members come first” for us. The lovely new First Club interior décor sparkles with natural hues and accents of tropical color. Comfortable chairs and couches encourage members to relax and stay awhile as they would in their own home.

Bigger and much more comfortable, the new First Club will feature a special area to enjoy a private breakfast, a private pool, comfortable lounge beds, covered cabanas ad and outdoor sitting area. Everything is new and fresh, and as a First Club Member it’s all there for your personal use.

In just one month you’ll be able to relax in our new Arena Beach Club! The natural materials we’ve used in the Beach Club renovation compliment the natural beauty of Arena Beach— an expanse of powdery white sand meeting turquoise-blue water. Members enter our paradise through a covered walk-way that leads to a palm-lined beach area with comfortable covered lounges and private cabanas for your personal enjoyment. You might also choose to kick-back with a tropical cocktail in our thatched-roof Arena Bar, or relax in the Jacuzzi. You’ll never want to leave!

What hasn’t changed a bit? The exceptional service and hospitality you deserve and that we are honored to provide you.

This renovations are part of our continuing efforts to create special vacation experiences for our members through exceptional features and amenities. Want to see how will the First Club and Beach Club look like? Click here and take a look!
