Essential Golf: A passion for the Game

Experience an All in One “Stay and Play” Paradise

Bahia Principe in Riviera Maya, Mexico.

Today, we want you to discover two dream places. The jungle, the sea, the Caribbean… These are words that will invite you to dream, but if they come accompanied by our favorite sport and in fields, which enhance the overwhelming beauty of the place, then… we are talking, without a doubt, of paradise. Bahía Príncipe is always in search of the perfect experience and now presents the most tempting and all-around “stay and play” offer. An all-inclusive package, where guests can play golf without any time restrictions.

The backdrop of paradise

In La Romana, the most traditional golfing environment in the Dominican Republic, Ocean’s 4 offers a spectacular course that provides playing alternatives for all levels. The premise was very clear when we decided to create this course, which was that it should be a memorable experience. And this objective has been achieved. It’s only been a year since its opening, but its 18 holes par 72 plus its 9 holes par 3, have no reason to envy their very well-known neighboring courses. Its leafy vegetation has been integrated effectively to coreespond with the resort. The native wildlife has been treated with the outmost respect, and its innovative design full of contrasts make playing here an adventure from beginning to end.

According to Miguel Ángel Jiménez, a recent guest and winner of 20 titles, “What I like the most are the different game possibilities and the fact that you can never get bored playing it.”

Feel the Caribbean breeze

The course combines “Scottish links”, “Caribbean links”, “parkland” and “desert” areas to provide a stimulating experience, from the first momento to the last. And it has more technical, strategic and wider holes, where one can hit the ball with all his or her might. Regardless, without a doubt, the most remarkable thing are the 4 holes next to the Caribbean Sea. The turquoise blue contrasts in an idyllic way with the luminous green of the palm trees and the sea grapes.

Moreover, if the breeze is in your favor, you will even feel drops of sea water on your face. After a perfect day of golf, you can get away to a suite at Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville, a 5-star resort less than 5 minutes from the course, the experience will be beyond real. An all-inclusive stay only for adults with a la carte restaurants, spa, 24hr room service, stewards, a white sand bay… A place you’ll never want to leave; unless, it is to discover another paradise in the Riviera Maya.

About the Riviera Maya Golf Club

Riviera Maya Golf Club is the other gem we want you to discover today. An impressive work of landscape architecture where the renowned Robert Trent Jones II has managed to create spectacular synergy by integrating the golf course into the Mayan jungle, respecting its natural lakes, rock formations and water wells.  This golf resort, with another course of 9 holes par 3, has recently been recognized byGolf Digest magazine as one of the best in all of Mexico and America.

Playing on this field is truly magical. The 27 holes have been carved deep into a limestone quarry. The same stone the Mayan pyramids of Tulum are made of, just a short distance away. Let’s not forget we are in one of the richest regions in the world when it comes to archeological sites. So, when you’re enjoying hole 6 par 4, and suddenly you come across a beautiful water well, you’ll probably think, “This wonder has been there since the time of the Mayas.” And you’ll feel the most privileged person on the planet. Another hole worth mentioning is hole number 4. Sinuous as a snake… This is precisely the name of the lake that accompanies us along this beautiful par 5, Kaan-ha, “water snake” in Mayan language. And what can be said about the mythical hole 15 par 3! Its great difficulty is only eclipsed by its even greater beauty.

Nature and history merge in this experience that does not end on the field. The icing on the cake is to stay in the extraordinary Luxury Bahia Principe Sian ka’an. A 5-star hotel whose architecture is so integrated in the Mayan jungle that you almost feel you are part of it. Its customer service, as warm as its climate, responds to the highest standard of the Bahia Principe chain. Gastronomy, drinks, entertainment, peace, exclusivity… happiness. The Bahia Principe Romana Resort and Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Resort are connected to international airports, which receive direct flights from the main cities in the United States and Canada.
