As one of the widest beaches in the Dominican Republic, the spacious stretch of shoreline known as Arena Gorda—or, "Fat Sand"—provides plenty of room to laze as it gently slopes toward the Caribbean Sea. Claim your space on this grand strand with an all-inclusive Escape to Riu Palace Bávaro courtesy of Apple Vacations.

Indulge in a hearty slice of relaxation with a three- ($799), four- ($949), or seven-night ($1,199) stay for one adult, based on double occupancy, in a Villa Selection Superior Jacuzzi Suite or an Ocean-Front Jacuzzi Suite. Or, opt to bring along a child for your three- ($739), four- ($789), or seven-night ($909) getaway. October, November, and December departure dates are available (see fine print for specific dates) and must be booked with Apple Vacations by October 22.*

You'll also enjoy round-trip nonstop flights from New York's JFK Airport to Dominican Republic's La Romana International Airport via JetBlue Airways, including round-trip ground transportation from the airport to the resort (a 45-minute trip via the new Coral Highway) as well as all taxes and fees. During your stay at Riu Palace Bávaro's all-inclusive haven, you'll receive an overload of meals, snacks, room service, and domestic and imported drinks.

Located near the Bávaro Lagoon and National Park of the East, your lavish accommodations provide plenty of space to stretch out when you're not lounging alongside wind-swept dunes and warm, lapping waves.

Sample your included fruit platter and bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival in the privacy of your suite. Packed with amenities, your accommodations feature a balcony or terrace with ocean views, an integrated lounge area with sofa, as well as plenty of other modern extras including Wi-Fi and satellite TV. Villa guests also have access to a private pool and bar.

Loaded with daily activities and nightly entertainment, Riu Palace Bávaro dishes out a variety of options when it comes to resort life. Take a dip in one of three pools or hit the surf with access to windsurfing, sailing, kayaking, and snorkeling equipment. Indoor options include a state-of-the-art gym, steam bath, and Jacuzzi. Guests also have free access and exchange privileges with the neighboring Riu Naiboa, Riu Palace Punta Cana, ClubHotel Riu Bambu, and adults-only Riu Palace Macao.

Filling up on quality cuisine is a breeze at the resort's five restaurants that include Japanese, Italian, and fusion eateries, as well as a steakhouse, an international buffet, and both a sports and swim-up bar.

No need to ask for seconds—this Escape delivers an unlimited amount of tropical bliss.

*Escapes not booked by October 22 will be automatically refunded.
