LUXURY BAHAI PRINCIPE AMBAR
PUNTA CANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
WHY CHOOSE THIS TRIP?
Join the Space City Ski and Adventure Club to one of the best beach adventures in the world. Travelers will be rewarded with your first Mamajuana* (customary adult beverage and must try) or a cocktail of your choice upon your arrival at the Luxury Bahai Principe Ambar. Okay. That’s a long name so I’ll just call it the Ambar. The Bahia Principe is a mega resort including multiple locations catering to the wants of patrons from around the world. The Ambar is a secluded section for adults only yet Ambar patrons may visit the other areas of the resort. TripAdvisor reviewers give the Ambar a 4.5 rating out of 5.
The club and I will be looking for 28 excited participants to take advantage of this tropical vacation. Additional bookings will be at the prevailing rate.
WHAT'S AT THE AMBAR?
The Ambar includes just about everything you could want. There are 2 pools so you can’t go far without finding a favorite tanning location. It has 5 different restaurants for fine dining and many more in the other family oriented sections. It’s impossible to go hungry. The drinks are unlimited and the cocktail bars all over the place including a swim up pool bar and watering hole on the beach. The Ambar has just about everything you can think of. Even kayaks and catamarans are available upon request.
The beach is deep with shady palm trees growing in sugar white sand. But don’t be afraid to venture directly to the surfside where the blue water extends well into your distant view. It’s your choice, just lay back and enjoy or soak in the crystal waters. You can’t go wrong either way.
MORE THAN JUST A GREAT BEACH
Punta Cana offers other great activities. Our group will plan several day excursions that may include zip line, island exploration, cenote swimming, and horseback riding on the beach. Punta Cana is known for its golf courses also. If there are people who golf on the trip, I’d like to find a volunteer to be a group leader. These activities outside the confines of the resort will be alacarte. Anyone can decide what they want to do and when they do them.
The Ambar actually has two areas. We will be located closest to the beach. All the rooms at the Ambar are totally remodeled within the past year. So our rooms should be nice and fresh. The rooms will come with either a king size or two full size beds. You get to choose. The bathroom includes a hair dryer and the bathtub is hydro-massage. Other room amenities include a stocked minibar, coffee and tea making facilities and Wi-Fi.
The ski club is offering this trip as a land only package at this time. In the fall I will be looking for group airline travel. I’ll also be taking the names of people who are interested in the group airfare. As travel isn’t until May of 2019, it’s difficult to pin down a competitive airfare at the time of this writing. Our tour operator suggests booking the airfare in the late fall or early winter. Remember December 2018 is still 5 months away from our travel date. The intent is to offer everyone support in finding a good and timely flight.
Our official club drink will be the Mamajuana which traditionally should be the very first drink consumed. This herbal drink should get everyone in the mood for fun. Mamajuana is a concoction made from rum, red wine and honey soaked with a special tree bark and herbs. But forget the recipe. You just need to know the Dominicans consider this an aphrodisiac. You be the judge! Or just take some home for medicinal purposes. Ha!
