Dominican Republic Luxury Holidays

The dazzling and diverse Dominican Republic

A verdant Caribbean paradise.

The second biggest country in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic boasts exceptional white sand beaches, awe-inspiring national parks, mesmerising Unesco world heritage sites, and an array of luxury resorts.

An abundance of natural beauty

The quintessential tropical isle, the Dominican Republic possesses two hundred and fifty miles of heavenly beaches. With the Atlantic Ocean encircling the north coast and the Caribbean Sea lapping against the south coast, if you dream of white sands and palm trees, this little slice of paradise is waiting to deliver.

But the Dominican Republic has much more to offer than just beautiful beaches. Home to eighteen national parks, Dominican Republic holidays offer a breathtaking range of landscapes to explore. From majestic mountain ranges to enchanting waterfalls and mystical caves, there is a wealth of natural beauty to admire. Bursting with biodiversity, the island is home to over 13,000 species of flora and fauna. Spend memorable days gazing at delicate orchids in Sierra de Bahoruco National Park, whale watching or scuba diving with leatherback turtles, or spotting the vivid feathers of the flamingoes at the Laguna de Oviedo.

An intriguing past and vibrant present

Named Quisqueya (the mother of all lands) by its inhabitants. Since Christopher Columbus arrived searching for the new world in 1492, the Dominican Republic has been shaped by a rich melting pot of cultures. The first Spanish settlement in the Americas, there are also influences from the Japanese and Jewish communities who have made this magnificent island their home.

Step into the past and discover the Dominican Republic's pre-colonial history with a visit to the Caves of Pomier. This ancient site is decorated with over 4000 petroglyphs carved into the rock by the Taíno people. Alternatively, head to Punta Cana and the unique Yucayeke Museo Indígena, a farm that recreates life in a Taíno village. A fully immersive experience, visitors can try indigenous dishes in a bohio, a traditional thatched home, before taking a dip in a nearby cenote.

Travellers can soak up contemporary Dominican Republican culture by dancing merengue in the lively capital Santo Domingo or sampling a plate of mouthwatering salpicón. A Dominican delicacy, this chilled seafood feast is the perfect appetiser after a day sizzling on the beach.

Enjoy a luxe Caribbean holiday

After discovering the Dominican Republic's bountiful attractions, travellers can retire to spectacular hotels. Offering an unrivalled luxury holiday experience, these resplendent resorts house a wealth of opulent amenities. From swim-up bars overlooking the Caribbean Sea to award-winning golf courses, there are ample lavish facilities to please even the most discerning travellers. From Cap Cana to La Romana, whether you want to attempt a range of watersports or simply unwind in the Caribbean sun, guests can stay mere steps away from some of the world's most stunning beaches.
