This new amenity, which is part of a new VIP lounge area currently under construction at Punta Cana International Airport, will allow special guests to make a pit-stop for one last dip in the water before boarding. Besides a refreshing swim, visitors will also get to watch take-offs, landings, and taxiing jets on the tarmac, which sits just beyond the pool's infinity edge. Sure, whiffs of diesel fumes and insanely loud engine noises may not seem like your idea of relaxation, but compared to huddling around a crowded gate trying to charge your phone, it sounds like heaven.
As you can see from the renderings (shown above), the new private respite areas will be a wonderfully cushy spot to recharge and come to terms with the fact that you have to leave the DR. You can't just walk in without permission, though. As is the case with most airport lounges, you'll need special status to gain access. Specifically, once it opens its doors in December, it will only be available to first and business class passengers, certain homeowners and club members, and regular folks who've paid the $125-per-day fee to hang out there.
