The Dominican Republic is the island with the most beautiful beaches and vibrant cities. Any place you drive through or spend the day at, you will hear Salsa and Bachata music. People are dancing all together and cooking delicious seafood, have drinks and enjoy time with friends and family. Of course, there are also regions where you can go and relax in a quiet oasis, as in Las Terrenas. And today we share one of our favorite hotels with you!

Silence, nature, time and solitude, are the only few luxuries left in life.

Las Terrenas, the Ibiza of the Caribbean

As soon as you arrive at the entrance of Saman resort*, you notice the clean design, minimalistic touch and coziness which has been extended throughout the whole building. One thing is for sure: they did everything to make you feel at home.

Once passed through the reception, which has a beautiful large wooden table, you walk towards the center pool, dining area and the rooms, with in the center the Saman tree. The whole building and resort has been build around nature.They kept all the trees and furnished the places so it would perfectly blend in. This doesn't only makes you feel like you're in the middle of the Dominican Republic nature, you also have a touch of green everywhere you walk.

And that ecologic and sustainable touch isn't only outdoors, also the rooms (in total 24) are decorated with wooden furniture, like the night stands and closets for example. All wood comes from local artisans who are using the wood demolished by hurricanes. Other local interior details are: the paintings on the wall, the beach bag which you can use to go to the pool, the information cards,... You name it and it's local. Isn't that a beautiful way to not only show the guests the art and talent there's in the Dominican Republic? It also shows how nature and green elements can turn any room into a home. And we love their bohemian concept!

Enjoy their restaurant "Alibiza"

We know that any hotel offers food, often served as a buffet in the morning and "à la carte" by night. But what if I tell you that this boutique hotel also offers you a unique culinary experience?

On their menu you can find a mix of local food and culinary highlights. Especially the appetizers are worth a try and order each of them at least once, you won't regret it. My favorites on their menu where the "Low temperature cooked egg with cauliflower", combined with bacon, breadcrumbs and truffled oil. And their "Yucca cheese croquettes with curry sauce". For lunch I tried the "Avocado and Tuna tartare with green plantain". And for dinner I recommend you to go for the "Low cooked boneless pork ribs lacquered with barbecue and honey sauce" or "Pumpkin Ravioli". Are you starting to get hungry?

For those who find breakfast the most important meal of the day, we can proudly say that they serve it "à la carte" as well. A basket with bread and pastries is served on each table and you can choose your favorite hot drink. Their home made mint tea is perfect to start with if you love a good start of the day! Next to bread and pastries you can choose different styles of Eggs (with bacon), fluffy pancakes, an avocado or salmon toast and many other things that will get you ready for the day!

The hotel is build around nature

As everything is built around nature, Saman offers you different kinds of recreation areas. The first pool is located at the ground floor, next to their restaurant and bar. Another pool is on the highest level and gives you a view over the green area the hotel is located at.

When enjoying our free time at Saman for the first time, we felt like being in Ibiza. The calm, bohemian and relaxed atmosphere overtook us immediately! However, when spending some time at the pool, you get a hint of the Riads in Marrakech. Therefor we describe Saman as an oase of rest in an overwhelming beauty of bohemian elements. It's magical!

You will feel at home

Of course we can not end this article without talking about the rooms. The hotel counts 24 rooms with also the possibility to book a (presidential) suite. All carefully furnished with local elements, the rooms are giving you a feeling of being home.

In the bathroom you have walk-in shower and a large sink with a hairdryer, sustainable soap and soft bad towels. The closet space is endless, including a mini-bar, and in the room you will have a large bed, a sitting area and on the balcony you can relax while watching the sunset.
