Imagine a place, where you have one of the greatest beaches if the world right next to you (will be featured in our next post), waters as crystal clear as you have ever seen, great foods from all over the world and the wildlife are living right besides you in perfect harmony. Best of all, you can enjoy your holiday, without being disturbed by numerous fellow tourists. Here you feel private, exclusive and special. If we told you that you can find this place, pretty close to the Dominican tourist heaven/hell Punta Cana – you would properly think we were pulling your leg.
But we are not kidding, just south of Punta Cana – you find the private developed area Cap Cana. In here, some of the most luxurious resorts of The Dominican Republic are build, and we have stayed in one of the best of them – The Sanctuary Cap Cana.
The Sanctuary is build ad a small city, with a lot of buildings in classical dominican style and a fortress – yes – a new build fortress. You can choose from a lot of different accommodations – from typical suites to huge private villas with their own pool. We checked in at the fortress in a honey-moon suite with a private plunge pool, with a great view over the ocean.
The Sanctuary is a typically all-inclusive, and yet on the other hand something completely different. The small city has serval restaurants which you freely can choose from, japanese, argentinian, italian, dominican etc. These are not your average buffet-all-inclusive restaurant – but world class a la carte places, where you are offered anything you can imagine. The only difference from walking around any other small city in the world for dinner, is that you don’t need to pay, when you get up. When checking in or booking, you pay in advance for your entire stay. Unlike most all-inclusive resorts, you don’t get a ugly bracelet, that you have to where. Because this is such a small and private place, you just provide the waiters with your room number and the rest is taken care of.
The beach at Sanctuary is really nice, and the sand and waters are in world class, and down here you also meet the big birds of the resort.
The staff at the place is very warm and friendly, and makes your stay memorable. There are different events from bon-fires to big beach parties held almost every day, but due to the vast size of the place, you can easily choose to go somewhere else, if you prefer to have a quite night.
The Sanctuary is one of the most calming and relaxing places we have ever stayed, very true to the original feel of the Dominican Republic, and providing you with the kind of Caribbean luxury that a place like this should in our opinion.
So if you are looking for a great place to stay, for you next stay in Dominican Republic, check out the Sanctuary – it get our best recommendations…
