Sublime Samana

Bahía de Coson 32000, Las Terrenas

  • Baby Ready
  • Toddler Fun
  • School Age Action
  • Cool for Teens

This Small Luxury Hotel on the Atlantic coast of the Dominican Republic is one of our favorite boutique beachfront experiences for families. Sublime Samana is located on a spectacular undeveloped beach at the edge of a massive palm tree forest extending for miles in either direction. Suites and cabanas surround a dramatic swimming pool lined with airy cabanas; a sweet family pool sits next to the beach. Apartment-style accommodations are ideally configured for families, with full kitchens as well as private indoor and outdoor living space. Dining options include a grill with fresh fish and seafood on the sand, and a bistro offering an international menu. Other than the nearby town of Las Terranas, there is no consequential urban development here and the jungle setting offers a long list of wonderful eco-oriented activities.
