In between two noisy towns, skanky Sosua and surf-city Cabarete, is an oasis of peace and tranquility. Ten cabanas built to blend with the tropical forest and a stone's throw from its own beach. Combined with service that is personal, two restaurants that pride themselves on fine cuisine, a spa and a yoga center and you have paradise with a mission -- relax!! We are not spa people and I personally cannot watch yoga without laughing, far less participate. But in this place I could feel stress coming off me that I didn't know I had. We all claimed long nights of restful sleep on fine mattresses. At first I was apprehensive about the absence of air conditioning, but the nights were cool and sound of the surf was hypnotic. It was October so I can't say conditions would be the same all year. During the day the front desk helped us with the lay of the land, local attractions and a rental car. We took in The Monkey Jungle and a restaurant called Simply Red which I am also reviewing favorably. To me the details made this place special: The almonds that fell from the shade trees were dried, sliced and roasted to dress the fresh fruit. The windows were framed with spiral shells. The stone-lined pool was cleaned of debris in between my daughter's splash sessions. And, quite purposefully, you can only get wi-fi in the reception area. When I saw my nine-year-old reading a book in the hammock I knew this was no ordinary hotel. I would recommend this place to the stressed out and overworked who finally admit to needing a break.
