Tucked away on an unspoiled white sand peninsula on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic, Sublime Samana hotel is a stunning suites-only retreat with pro-worthy tennis courts, fine dining, a sumptuous oceanfront spa and a show-stopping swimming pool on its vast, palm fringed grounds. Yep, that all sounds pretty sublime…

Why this week? After all that holiday eating, drinking and general merry-making we could use some serious down time. Preferably spent on a glittering white sand beach, in a natural spa or a sunrise yoga class. And with an eight-night Dominican exploration offer you can take a long healthy break right now, for less.
Our favourite bits… After a few hours sunning poolside, sink deeper still into your relaxed state with a premium pampering at the natural beach spa. Just steps from the shore, indulge in a coconut caressing, soothing sun rub or rejuvenating rain massage in one the three breezy spa pavilions.
Mr & Mrs Smith say… ‘Sapphire skies, wind-sand shores and cerulean sea: you might think nature’s the star of the show in these parts, but she’s sharing top billing with Samana’s own charms. Awash with white, the petit 20-suite resort is chic but not over-showy. Stroll from your private terrace to the courtyard, where canopied day-beds look over a network of waterways flowing into two dramatic swimming pools. Saunter down to the waterfront for a sun-kissed massage at the beach spa. Hop on a horse and discover the jungle. Or just lie by the pool and don’t move for a week. No need to stress yourself.’ Read the full anonymous review of Sublime Samana.
You say… ‘I liked the beauty of hotel, the tropical landscape, the starry night sky, the beach and how friendly everyone was.’ Frances, BlackSmith, stayed in November 2013
