Inspired by local design elements

It is the second H10 Hotels resort in Punta Cana, after the Ocean Blue & Sand, and in the coming months it will undergo a new project expansion phase to include El Beso adult-only area, with another 293 rooms.

The establishment, designed by the Lázaro Rosa-Violán studio, features an interior design with a marked colonial style and owes its name to the lighthouse, built on the beachfront as part of the project, which houses a viewpoint with spectacular views over the ocean and the hotel's Beach Club.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by an imposing hall with high vaulted ceilings inspired by the architecture of a natural history museum. The space is presided over by a large whale skeleton and contains the Lobby Bar featuring a wide oval bar. The Front Desk is situated in this area, as is a cozy Piano Bar.
