Compared to your usual soundtrack of voices, sirens, and ringtones, the Caribbean Sea lapping at the shore sounds like music to your ears. If your eardrums have taken a beating of late, take off on this low-key Escape to the Balaji Palace at Playa Grande in the Dominican Republic.

Bring a companion for four nights in a Deluxe Room ($870), Garden Suite ($970), or Oceanfront Cliffside Suite ($1,120). Or, tack on a couple days for a six-night stay in a Deluxe Room ($1,350), Garden Suite ($1,455), or Oceanfront Cliffside Suite ($1,680). Whichever you choose, your stay includes a full American meal plan with daily breakfast, lunch, four-course dinner, after-dinner tea, and non-alcoholic drinks. You'll also enjoy a ten-percent discount at the spa.

Your stress will fade from the minute you arrive at Playa Grande, a serene India-themed villa on the Dominican coast. Every room or suite features unique décor with local textiles, tiled floors, high ceilings, antique four-poster beds, and oversized showers. Outside your luxury accommodations, you'll hear the wind rustling the palm fronds and the surf surging gently onto the private beach.

Tune out the outside world with an included ten-percent discount on a treatment or massage at the Palace Spa. This tropical sanctuary overlooking the ocean is dedicated to replenishing the body, mind, and spirit using natural healing properties and proven wellness techniques.

If you're interested in turning up the volume, a range of nearby sightseeing and shopping will set the perfect tone. The quaint shopping village of Rio San Juan is just five minutes from the hotel, and the towns of Cabrera and Cabarete—with larger markets, jewelry stores, souvenir shops, and great nightlife—are both within shouting distance.

You'll have no trouble quieting your rumbling stomach thanks to your included full American meal plan, which includes daily breakfast, lunch, four-course dinner, after-dinner tea, and non-alcoholic drinks. Locally sourced dishes are prepared by an on-site chef and served in your room, the main dining area, or your choice of secluded outdoor locations.

If silence is what you crave, this Escape is golden. But act fast, because we can't keep a great deal hush-hush for long.

  • "This 21-room boutique hotel is reminiscent of an Indian Moghul palace, with carved stone columns, onion domes, statues of Ganesh, and peacocks strutting through the landscaped tropical gardens."
