There are the trips when you’re constantly on the go, fitting in as much sightseeing as possible. Then there the vacations where relaxation is the focus, but with a healthy dose of exploration.
Finally, there is a destination like the all-suite Eden Roc at Cap Cana. At this Dominican Republic slice of paradise – located on one of the world’s finest stretches of sand – every luxury traveler’s whim can be indulged at your doorstep, whether you’re interested in activities galore or unapologetic relaxation.
Unwinding and decompressing starts in your one bedroom lagoon or garden view suite. Spanning nearly 1,100 square feet, each suite features a private swimming pool plus a private massage area. While going “off-the-grid” is important to many upscale travelers, even non-techies will love using comprehensive lighting, temperature and sound control through an ultra modern iPad entertainment system.
These are just a few of many luxurious appointments.
“We used top-quality materials and amenities in the architecture and interior design of the hotel: from premium coral stone and hand-painted tile floorings, to goose down feather duvets and pillows and 300 thread count luxury sheets and pillowcases made from 100% mercerized Egyptian cotton, just to name a few details,” said Juliana Cordones Sabala, Sales and Marketing Coordinator.
If the in-suite massage table is any indication, Eden Roc takes the spa and wellness concept very seriously. Luxury Link guests enjoy daily access to the newly-reopened Solaya Spa, where a free-form swimming pool, Swedish sauna and a beautiful hammam set a mood of serenity. A 50-minute couple’s massage is included in your vacation experience, which can be enjoyed under a beachfront cabana with gently-lapping Caribbean waves providing the perfect soundtrack.
Complimenting the Solaya Spa experience is a full state-of-the-art gym and SOLSPA Menu, allowing you to eat right during your Dominican Republic vacation.
We alluded to Eden Rock’s bevy of on-site activities above, and with 30,000 square feet of lush, tropical grounds, virtually any pleasure-seeking whim can be indulged at Camp Cana. Hearing Juliana Cordones Salaba describe what a guest’s typical day might be like left us breathless.
“A delicious breakfast with ocean views, relaxing beach time, unique culinary experiences, massages at our Beachfront Massage Pavilion, world-class golf at Punta Espada Golf Course, tailor-made excursions from shopping and cultural to eco-adventure and animal encounters are just some of the options we offer guests.”
“World-class” might be an understatement to describe Punta Espada, a Jack Nicklaus-designed course named Best Course in the Caribbean and Mexico in 2011 by Golfweek. The intricate layout engages golfers with breathtaking scenery of cliffs, beaches and waterfalls.
Dining is also a full-contact sport at Eden Roc, with four on-site restaurants:
- Mediterraneo, featuring creative French and Italian cuisine using the freshest local ingredients and specialties flown in from artisanal suppliers in Europe
- Gastronomico, a gourmet’s journey to every corner of the globe as the resort’s chefs experiment with flavors that delight the palate
- Blue Lagoon Pool Bar-Restaurant, a casual place for light fare and deli favorites
- La Palapa by Eden Roc, with seafood and more prepared to perfection under the direction of international chef Gianluca Re Fraschini
Located in the exclusive Caleton Beach Club, La Palapa has a number of inventive dishes recommended by Cordones Salba.
“Some of the specialties at La Palapa are shrimp ceviche with crispy onion and coconut dressing or an octopus, rock fish, langoustine and crab meat “Guazzeto”, with a tomato sauce and croutons,” she advised.
As a Luxury Link traveler, included in your vacation experience is a romantic three-course dinner for two on one evening of your choice.
Set against the backdrop of one of the top-10 beaches in the world according to Trip Advisor, Eden Roc at Cap Cana takes the concept of full-service luxury resort to the next level. Take full advantage of the on-site activities, or relax to the fullest at the beach, your suite’s private swimming pool or the Solaya Spa. It’s YOUR Luxury Link vacation experience…we promise not to judge!
