Revel in the Serenity of Sublime Samana Now Open on the Dominican Republic’s Most Pristine Shore

Caressing the crystal-clear waters of the Samana Peninsula, Sublime Samana Hotel & Residence, is the newest addition to Small Luxury Hotels of the World’s exclusive portfolio of boutique hotels in the Caribbean. The exquisitely designed property opened in early March 2012 and offers guests access to a collection of 20 private suites and casitas nestled on the Dominican Republic’s most dazzling and remote beaches.

The Samana province of the island’s northeastern coast remains one of the most undiscovered, unspoiled natural habitats of the Dominican Republic, and notably the Caribbean as a whole. In a setting surrounded by a backdrop of lush, tropical mountains, guests can enjoy unparalleled seclusion, while swimming through sparkling turquoise waters and relaxing in luxurious shaded sunbeds that virtually hover above the property’s serene pools.


The stunning casitas and main residential building seamlessly mesh a brilliantly modern architectural scheme with the natural landscape, serving as the perfect frame for the spectacular interconnected pools that flow only steps from villa doors. The spacious architect-designed private suites and casitas offer unwavering luxury with open floor plans that allow for a peaceful immersion with the wondrous sights and sounds of the magically exotic, mountainous ocean setting.

Each of the 16 private suites in the main building and four private casitas feature floor-to-ceiling windows, a comfortable private balcony or terrace, elegant, inviting furnishings, full dining rooms and fully equipped kitchens with top of the line appliances. Private chefs can be brought in to prepare breakfast and dinner in your personal state of the art kitchen as you rejuvenate in the tranquil Caribbean breeze on your well-appointed terrace. 

Unwind on Shaded Sunbeds and Refresh in the Sparkling Sea

Continuing to offer the unabated luxury for which Small Luxury Hotels is known, Sublime Samana has spared no detail when it comes to ensuring the best of creature comforts and pleasures for its guests. A gem of the Caribbean, the isolated property allows guests to revel in the warm Caribbean breeze with access to six-miles of pristine, sandy palm-fringed beach. Following a mellow beachside stroll, comfortable chaises await guests seeking a moment of reflection, a refreshing beverage, or simple relaxation.

For guests looking for an afternoon treat, the poolside grille offers delectable dishes in a casual open-air waterfront setting.  For a more elegant twist, the property’s main restaurant, Bistro, offers visitors a fusion of French and Mediterranean cuisine in an intimate atmosphere with both indoor and outdoor terrace seating. 

For parents and couples seeking an afternoon of romance and relaxation, the rustic, Robinson Crusoe inspired, natural beach Spa will offer an array of indigenous treatments right on the fine sand of the property’s magnificent shore. Sublime Spa will offer massages, facials, body wraps, and a signature purifying rain massage. After treatments, guests can feel the sand sift between their toes as they sip chilled coconut milk directly from the coconut itself.

Offering the option of further excursions, guests can partake in journeys to the spectacular Limon waterfall or to the National Park Los Haitises with its calcified hills, caves, mangroves, and multitude of bird species and exotic sea turtles. Those who visit between January and March, can take a whale-watching boat trip to see the humpback whales arrive annually in Samana to mate, give birth and nurse their young.
