Where to Stay in Samaná, Dominican Republic

All Inclusive Resorts, Eco Chic Hotels & Boutiques

The Dominican Republic is famous for all inclusive resorts but personally I’ve never been the biggest fan of those types of hotels. If you’re looking for an alternative type of retreat, there’s a property for everyone in Samaná province, a small strip in the northeastern section of the country. I was very fortunate to have a tour of each of the properties below and found them all to be incredibly unique – read on to find the perfect hotel for you in the Dominican Republic!

Paraiso Caño Hondo is located within Los Haitises National Park, a beautiful mangrove and island rainforest straight out of scenes from Jurassic Park. The Eco Lodge has multiple swimming pools with beautiful mini waterfalls and is the perfect escape for families with children.

The Dominican Tree House Village

Hotel Review

 

The Dominican Tree House Village offers zip-lining above the forest (exhilarating – try going upside down!) as well as beautiful tree houses built directly in the forest. There are smaller rooms perfect for kids higher up in the forest canopy and larger bedroom huts with swinging hammock chairs and private bathrooms.

The Bannister Hotel & Yacht Club

Hotel Review

 

The Bannister Hotel is a gorgeous property built like the interior of a ship with a beautiful indoor-outdoor lobby (you can pull up your yacht to dock right at the bar if you would like!) and a winding central circular staircase. 1 and 2 bedroom rooms are quite comfortable, or splurge on a suite with ocean views. The Bannister is ideally located close to both Los Haitises National Park (you can book a day trip with the on-site tour operator) as well as El Limon waterfall.

Sublime Samaná

Hotel Review

 

One step into the property and you’re greeted with fresh passion fruit juice and swept on to the oasis that is Sublime Samaná. The property has beautiful 1 and 2 bedroom suites as well as private villas available to rent for larger families or groups. Each villa comes with a cabana and the hotel is located right on a stretch of the beach that makes for the perfect sunset. The hotel restaurant is perfect for those looking for elevated Dominican classics like foie gras in Dominican dark chocolate.

I stayed at the Tree House Village last year and was blown away! If you’re okay with sharing your morning coffee with a few lizards running up the wooden banisters then this is this place for you. Such a wonderful experience! That place stole my heart.
