Four-Star Resort Flanked by Tropical Rainforests and the Caribbean Sea

At The Palace at Playa Grande, peacocks parade amid columned porticoes accented by stone statues of Ganesh. Despite the estate's resemblance to an Indian palace, it’s a Caribbean hideaway on the north shore of the Dominican Republic. There’s a private beach with golden sands, and a tropical rainforest buffers the resort from the surrounding towns.

Guest accommodations feature cool tile floors and local textiles. An absence of telephones and televisions reinforces the overall sense of serenity. Downstairs, skilled kitchen staff use local ingredients to craft a regularly rotating menu that may feature beef empanadas and roasted green-mango salad.

The meal plan includes daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which you can enjoy on a terrace overlooking the ocean, at the beach, or in your own room. Though alcohol is not included, it is available for purchase. In the villa's pool area, bartenders mix tasty cocktails at a swim-up bar.

Playa Grande, Dominican Republic: Marine Adventure on Caribbean Shore

Steps from the villa, the Atlantic Ocean stretches to the horizon past 1,000 feet of pristine, private beachfront tucked into the mountainside. The resort loans snorkeling gear to those seeking an up-close peek at the Caribbean's colorful marine life. At a local dive school, instructors certify scuba divers and lead expeditions into the watery depths, where coral reefs, shipwrecks, and underwater mountains await exploration.

Above the surface, the consistent breaks and swells at nearby Playa Grande Beach make it a must-visit destination for surfers. Giant leatherback sea turtles also frequent Playa Grande and can be glimpsed during nesting season, when they come ashore to discuss time-shares.

Forty minutes away, browse the vibrant market and jewelry shops of Cabarete. Perpetual wind gusts rushing southbound from the Atlantic make the area a popular spot for windsurfers and kiteboarders. After nightfall, Cabarete comes alive as salsa dancers flock to the city’s many nightclubs.
