  • Jellyfish, Punta Cana

    jf welcomeIt takes just a few minutes travelling down a narrow road, and once you arrive it is confirmed that your journey was worth the effort. Before you know it you are entering a welcoming environment framed by a small wooden walkway, crossing over a fish pond, and in the blink of an eye you realize that you have reached Jellyfish.

    With its distinctive architecture and long track record of providing good service, Jellyfish is Bavaro’s unmistakable beach club, dominated by natural materials: wood, stone and palmthatched roofs forming a two-story tropical structure that houses the restaurant and also includes a lounge with panoramic view of the entire beach.

    The staff at Jellyfish are experts at taking the vision you have for your wedding and making it a reality. They are proud that every wedding at Jellyfish can be as customized and as unique as the love you share between you.
