Destination Management

Customized trip planning (balancing guest/owner tastes with local opportunities).

Exclusive access to some of the region’s top amenities. Custom arrangements, such as guided tours, hiking guides, waterfalls visits, spa and restaurant reservations, SCUBA diving, water sports as well as land based accommodation in luxurious villas or hotels.

Ocean World Marina, Amber Coast

North coast, Cofresí

The Amber Coast, named for the rich deposits of lustrous amber found throughout the region, runs along the northern coast from Cofresi to Nagua. Forests, mountains, and miles of golden beach provide a playground for adventurous sports enthusiasts with such activities as mountain biking and horse riding, as well as a host of water sports like diving, windsurfing, and kite surfing.

The port city of Puerta Plata is the region’s capital and the main tourism enclave. Another stretch of beautiful coastline, although lined with large all inclusive resorts – venture a little further along the beach to find picture perfect plages or head inland to the sleepy neighborhood of Damajagua to see the 27 waterfalls.

Puerto Bahía, Samaná Peninsula

East coast, Samaná

One of the recent port destinations to cause a stir in the Caribbean is the Samaná Peninsula. Unlike the well known tourist-dominated areas of the DR, Samaná is a naturalist’s delight, unspoiled beaches, clear mountain streams, and vast marine life spread along the gorgeous peninsula and its surrounding archipelago. The 25 miles (40km) of coastline, give Samaná a strong European vibe that draws yachts for its sheltered coves and beaches with world-class whale spotting.

Cap Cana Marina

South coast, Punta Cana

Described as a 30-mile paradise punctuated with sky-reaching coconut palms and blessed with one of the Caribbean’s longest white sand coastline, Punta Cana is the land of rest and relaxation on and by the sea. It offers a seaside escape with luxurious marinas and fine dining, including the only Six Senses in the Caribbean. It is also a great golfer’s destination, with many courses located all along the strip.

Casa de Campo

South coast, La Romana

Around the port filled with superb yachts, the city of La Romana and its surroundings are the meeting point of the jet set in Casa de Campo. This complex is dominated by the site of Altos de Chavon, a beautiful 16th century replica Mediterranean village.

Marina Zar Par

South coast, Santo Domingo

The nations vibrant capital pulses with the relentless beat of merengue blasting from every Plaza. The cobblestoned streets are a frenzy of passionate latinos shopping, drinking and dancing. It is a fantastic place to aimlessly wander. Interestingly, Santo Domingo is listed as the oldest city in the western hemisphere according to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Examples of 15 and 16th century architecture are apparent throughout.

Saona Island

The island is the tropical postcard beach with swaying palms, white sand and turquoise waters; a nature reserve protected by the government and part of the Eastern National Park. During this cruise, you can leave Saona beach with speed boats and head to the natural pools  in search of giant starfish.

Catalina Island

Quieter and more intimate than the island of Saona, Catalina offers a famous diving spot called “The Muro”. A few dozen yards from the coast, the depth differs  from 10 to almost 300 feet. Covered with sponges and corals, this area is the ideal place for snorkeling.

Palmilla Beach

Palmilla Beach is a pristine beach located right in front of Saona Island. An idyllic place to disembark a few hours and discover the magic hour of the sunset.
