On the Northeast coast of the Dominican Republic lies the dramatic lush, green tropical jungle clad hills and fine-sand beaches of the Samana Peninsula. Tucked away in this unspoiled tropical paradise lies Sublime Samana, a modern yet elegant luxury resort and member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Visit this hotel in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic to see for yourself.
The seven-acre resort property centers around the expansive canal of pools stretching nearly 500 feet from end-to-end. The luxurious suites have been artfully built to create a contemporary setting in harmony with nature. From the moment you arrive, the warm sea breezes and the soothing sound of the waves crashing against the shore transport you to a relaxed state of mind. For a complete escape, visit Coconut Whispers Spa where relaxing massages are enjoyed with the tranquil sound of the swaying palms. The culinary experience is just as enticing with poolside dining featuring fresh catch-of-the-day specials. In the evenings, retreat to Bistro where only local ingredients are incorporated into each dish.
Winner of Taste Santo Domingo 2012, a Copa Culinaria Nestlé Profesional competition, Chef Cristian Báez’ unique Dominican spin on Mediterranean cuisine must be savored. Whether dining on ceviche or a refreshing lobster wrap at the casual, open-air beachside grill or retreating to the more formal Bistro to enjoy snapper in coconut sauce, meals taken at Sublime always delight and satisfy.
The wood-paneled and art-adorned interior of Bistro is perfectly complimented by large windows and a beautiful terrace allowing a casual, yet elegant feel. The full-service restaurant is connected to Bistro’s lounge where guests can enjoy a refreshing cocktail or glass of wine before or after meals.
The menu, based on fresh local ingredients, changes weekly with a strong emphasis on fish caught daily in Las Terrenas (or right off the hotel’s beach).
Full-American breakfast is served at Bistro along with nightly dinner. Lunch is taken down by the beach at the Grill. For guests looking to cool off and grab a drink without having to leave the comforts of the sand, the grill’s beachside bar offers “cocos fríos,” a local favorite, as well as frozen tropical concoctions perfect for a day in the sun.
Room service is available for guests who prefer to enjoy a night in or breakfast on their private balcony.
Unravel the mind and body in the perfect way at Sublime's all-natural Coconut Whispers Spa. Its soothing and restful setting seamlessly creates the ideal spa experience. Adorned with a beautiful living wall, precious orchids, and rustic décor, the spa is a complete sanctuary for everyone to enjoy. This indoor retreat is the classic escape for a rainy day or even from the summer sun.
Relax, rejuvenate and recharge with Coconut Whispers Spa’s menu of rituals, including massages, facials and body wraps. At the end of a treatment, guests are treated to fresh, chilled coconut water served straight from the coconut itself to help rehydrate and replenish the body.
Complimentary yoga is offered every Thursday and Sunday at 8:30am at the gazebo by the main pool.
The Samaná Peninsula, regarded as the prettiest part of the island of Hispaniola, offers guests a tropical paradise that still remains unspoiled and the magic of discovery still awaits. Coconut-covered mountains that stretch down to the pristine sandy beaches, crystal-clear water teeming with coral reefs and tropical fish, and awe-inspiring waterfalls descending the lush mountainside define the region and leave much to explore. Whether you are looking to go snorkeling, hike through virgin verdant terrain, or watch the incredible humpback whales frolicking just off the coast, the Samaná Peninsula is a destination for nature lovers and adventurers, and for couples looking for a romantic escape to paradise. All this makes for one of the high end hotels in Samana that you could visit.
