The tourism guide of the American Automobile Association (AAA) has included in its list of favorite places to visit two popular restaurants in the Punta Cana Resort & Club: the Bamboo and the “La Yola.”
The Bamboo Restaurant, which received four diamonds, is located in the Tortuga Bay luxury boutique hotel.
The restaurant’s menu is a Mediterranean inspired combination of modern cuisine, with a variety of innovative fusion dishes.
The restaurant was decorated by world-famous fashion designer Dominican-American Oscar de la Renta.
The “La Yola” restaurant received three diamonds and is situated in Punta Cana’s marina.
The Tortuga Bay beachfront Hotel is a member of the Leading Small Hotels of the World, Virtuoso-Hotels & Resorts, of Signature – Travel Network and Fine Hotels & Resorts – American Express.
The hotel has also earned the 2011 Travel & Leisure Global vision Award and the 2009 Conde Nast World Saves Award.
The Turtle Bay also received, for a second consecutive year, the Five Diamond rating from the AAA guide. This distinction is awarded to tourism facilities that have demonstrated a total commitment to excellence in every facet of their operation.
Of the 37,000 hotels ranked by AAA in 2012, Tortuga Bay is now among the exclusive group of 0.25% hotels that achieve this distinction.
