Along the corridor that makes up the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, teeming with rural jungle and dense forest, lies the golden beach of Playa Grande. Stay with Inspirato at Amanera—equipped with 18-hole golf course, eclectic on-site dining, and expansive ocean views.
It’s a tall order to be revered as one of the most pristine and picturesque beaches in all the Dominican Republic when the island itself boasts nearly 1,000 miles of coastline. The coveted golden sands of Playa Grande deliver on their esteemed reputation, backing up to a swath of verdant Caribbean jungle. The grand interiors of the resort blend seamlessly with nature at this quiet retreat on the northern side of the island. The North Atlantic Ocean expands past your accommodations. Outside the resort grounds, sugar plantations, charming villages, and never-ending options to explore the great outdoors are in store.
Re-opening in November of 2017, the Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed golf course on site features 18 holes directly on the coastline – the most of any golf course in all the western hemisphere.

Take a day trip to visit Santa Domingo, the 16th-century capital of the Dominican Republic. To the backdrop of meringue music, wander the walled streets and cobblestones, stopping into unique boutiques and cafes.
Adventurous travelers will cherish a visit to the Cabarete, a small coastal town best known for its ideal kiteboarding and surfing conditions. It’s a convenient one-hour drive from Amanera.

Just off the Sosua-Playa Dorada Highway, the Brugal Rum Distillery is open on weekdays. Peruse their white and dark rum offerings. Nearby, check out the Museo del Ámbar’s millennial fossils and collection of amber.

Hispaniola (the island that is known as the Dominican Republic and Haiti) was originally inhabited by Taíno Indians prior to colonial rule. Playa Grande honors its ancestors by incorporating the island’s natural surroundings into its décor.
Best known as the pristine stretch of sand that spans the coastline along the resort, Playa Grande ultimately connects to a smaller, more intimate beach; Playa Preciosa. Venture there for a slower day under the golden sun.
