The Destination
In the Dominican Republic, Old-World architecture, tropical scenery, and a laid-back vibe all share equal billing, making the island the quintessential Caribbean experience. Travelers could easily be tempted to spend their entire visit admiring the ornate Spanish Colonial architecture of cities like Santo Domingo or Puerto Plata—but they'd miss out on the main show: sugar-sand beaches dotted with coconut trees and dense rain forests full of wild orchids and roaring rivers.

The Digs
The Bannister Hotel is tucked between Puerto Bahia's mountains and the azure sea. Here, you'll discover a treasure trove of amenities in your One-Bedroom Ocean View Suite. Wrap yourself in ultra-comfortable bedding, feast in a fully equipped kitchen, or just soak in the warm sunset on your private balcony. Other spoils include Acqua di Parma bath products, free wireless Internet, in-room iPod docks, and LCD TVs.

Start each day with a sumptuous, American breakfast for two at Le Deauville. Then, sample the property's other culinary offerings at La Regata and Café del Mar. To get your heart pumping, you can try out the top-notch tennis courts or state-of-the-art fitness center. Or, just unwind with a cooling dip in one of two infinity pools. You and your sweetheart can also maroon yourselves for a bit in Ni Spa and enjoy a couples' massage (relaxing for her and deep tissue for him).

  • "This stylish marina complex smack on the Bay of Samaná has changed the face of tourism in this area and become the social center for the upscale residents. It's a stunner."
