Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana

All-Inclusive Resort in Dominican Republic

Chaz & Shatia's wedding will take place on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 1:00pm at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana.  In order to reserve your hotel room in their discounted block of rooms, a $200 deposit is required by April 15, 2017, regardless of number of guests staying in the room.  Please make your room selection in the form at the bottom of the page no later than April 1.  

All questions can be directed to Raquel Irby (Chaz & Tia's wedding planner) at hello@storyandstyle.events

Airport

The closest airport to the resort is Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ).  Be prepared to pay a $10 per person tourist fee upon arrival at the airport.  Passports are required to travel to Dominican Republic, and can not expire within 6 months of travel per the Six Month Validity Passport Rule. As a general travel rule, passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally. Most countries will not permit a traveler to enter their country unless the passport is set to expire no sooner than six months after the final day of travel.

Flights

Most major airlines only release fare information about 6-8 months in advance, meaning fares for November travel should be available around April.  The exception is American Airlines, which currently has fares for November posted, however, they are "price-gouging" rates (around $600-$700) since they are the only airline with fares available this soon.  Flight booking information will be sent out to all guests, along with formal invitations, in April.  If traveling from the Washington, DC metro area, we will have a flight option for guests which allows multiple payments on the airfare, however, we must wait until all airlines release fares for November travel, around April.  Guests traveling to Punta Cana from outside of the Washington, DC metro area may have to pay their airfare with one payment, unless (10) guests or more will be traveling from the same non-DC airport. 

Further flight information will be announced in April, with plans to confirm/book the group flight option from the Washington, DC metro area in May.
