A recent addition to our luxury Caribbean portfolio, the Dominican Republic opens up a new selection of two-centre holiday ideas. Miami and New York are just two and four hours away, respectively, both courtesy of direct flights. Take a look at our eclectic range of featured luxury hotels in these two exciting cities and enjoy top-class shopping, sightseeing and nightlife. Then, fly south to the Dominican Republic for a few balmy days in the sunshine, to an island quite different from those we’ve frequented until now.
Forget those big, brash all-inclusive resorts you’ve read about – we’ve found something super-special for you on the untamed northern shores of this verdant tropical isle. Amanera is a brand new resort from the exclusive, world-renowned luxury hotel brand, Amanresorts, so we know it’s going to be good. Picture a mile-long curve of pale biscuit-coloured sands backed by curvaceous palm trees and dense jungle forests, sublime oceanfront dining, wildlife encounters, children’s activities, signature spa treatments and an amazing golf course.
Geographically, the Dominican Republic actually comprises half of a big island, and is a rich farming country draped in coffee, tobacco and cacao plantations. It’s Spanish-speaking and so has a cosmopolitan air – think Latin American music and salsa dancing with an easy-going Creole twist. The other half of the island is French-speaking Haiti.
If you’ve visited other Caribbean islands and are looking for somewhere new, the Dominican Republic could be the answer, with direct charter flights to and from the UK on a daily basis, plus the aforementioned easy access to the fabulous east coast of the United States making it a great option for a twin-centre adventure.
