Eden Roc Cap Cana Hotel

Dominican Republic

Based around lush gardens, a man-made lagoon and crystal-clear stretch of sea, it’s apt that Eden features in the name of this award-winning resort on Dominican Republic’s easternmost tip. As the country’s only Relais & Châteaux member hotel, standards are high, with spacious villas, personalised service and first-rate fare. A welcome cocktail on arrival helps get you into the holiday spirit, with days of relaxation on the agenda, although sunset sails, a putt around the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course or a day trip into the historic capital of Santo Domingo are worth trading in the sun loungers for. Elegance comes with all the trimmings – think marble, floor-to-ceiling windows and Acqua Di Parma amenities, and take your pick from a private pool or ocean view villa. Mediterranean and sushi star on menus across three restaurants but for the best seat in the resort, book the Cave of Love dining experience. It’s the carefree, barefoot paradise you’ve been dreaming of.
