Four-Star Resort with Old-World Opulence 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, and onion-dome pinnacles cap whitewashed walls. Despite the estate's architectural resemblance to an Indian palace, it remains a distinctly Caribbean hideaway on the north shore of the Dominican Republic. Onsite, there’s a seasonal private beach with golden sands, and a tropical rainforest buffers the resort from the bustle of the island's metropolises.

Each deluxe guest room features cool tile floors, antique four-poster beds, and local textiles. An absence of telephones and televisions and attached balconies or patios add to the overall sense of serenity. Downstairs, The Palace's 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. The meal plan with alcohol option also includes unlimited well drinks as well as select beers and wines. In the villa's pool area, bartenders mix cocktails at a swim-up bar.

Playa Grande, Dominican Republic: Marine Adventure on Caribbean Shore

Steps from the villa, the Atlantic 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 of 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, who hit the waves on vessels powered by wind-driven sails or kites. After nightfall, Cabarete comes alive as salsa dancers flock to nightclubs pulsating with music and lights.
