Jungle Meets Coastline

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.

    Laguna Gri Gri. At the northern end of Calle Duarte, float through the mangrove-lined Laguna Gri Gri on an hourlong boat ride. Admiring the rock formations along the way, you can ultimately picnic at a nearby beach.
