Overview

About the property

Your Private Home With Hotel Services

Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge is a paradise for nature lovers and yogis who want to explore the Dominican Republic from the most authentic and beautiful side.

Escape to paradise and come to Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge! Incredible ocean views, absolute tranquility, a constant Caribbean breeze, a pool to enjoy, and 14 private, cozy cottages are just some of the features that you can expect when staying at Samaná Ocean View.

Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge was recently completely refurbished and is welcoming you with 14 lovely cottages for two, making it the perfect getaway for up to twenty-eight (28) people. They offer a maximum of privacy, each with its own bathroom and stunning ocean views.

During the day you can relax at the pool, sunbathe on the lounge chairs, or have a drink at the spacious club house, which has perfect views of the ocean as well. There is a large kitchen and bar for self-service, but we are happy to provide a private chef, waiter and bartender for a nominal fee (see below for further information). Our property manager is on-site and will help you with any needs you might have, including travel advice for Las Galeras and Samaná, or accommodations for other parts of the Dominican Republic, in case you would like to explore the country further. There is plenty of parking available on the property.

Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge is also a perfect place to enjoy the whale season. Every year more than 1000 humpback whales migrate from the polar regions to the Samaná Bay to mate. From the end of December until mid-March there is a rare opportunity to observe these gigantic sea mammals from Samaná Ocean View which offers perfect views down to the Samaná Bay.

AMENITIES

Each cottage at Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge is equipped with a queen-size bed with bedding, bedside tables, night light, chairs, table, ceiling fan, closet, deposit box, bathroom with shower. 6 of the cottages have a balcony while the other 8 cottages have floor-to-ceiling ocean view windows.

The rooms are cleaned twice a week or, upon request, every day. The club house comes with a large living and dining area, sound system, free Wi-Fi, barbecue, and a large and fully equipped kitchen. The pool can be used 24 hours a day, and will be illuminated at night. If you would like to hire a chef, we are happy to provide one along with menu choices. We can also offer a bartender available from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m.

Notes:

The concept of the property is that our guests will enjoy and unite with nature, that’s why there is no television at Samaná Ocean View. But there is Wi-Fi, so you can keep in touch with family and friends that didn’t come with you to our Eco-Lodge. The stunning landscape and ocean views will be the best movie you’ve ever seen.

Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge does not offer air conditioners, because they are not needed. The constant gentle ocean breeze coming through the balcony doors creates a perfect comfort zone!

As our pool is not equipped with any child-safety precautions or lifeguards, we recommend that only adults and children that are able to swim enjoy the pool. The use of the pool is totally at your own risk.

Private Chef and/or Bartender

We will happily provide a private chef, waiter and/or bartender for a small fee which covers their hourly wage, organizational work, all preparing, shopping, cooking and the requested meals as well. The cooks cooking skills are comparable to an upscale restaurant so we can offer you an exciting culinary experience in a unique and tranquil surrounding area – no matter if you prefer to sample the Dominican cuisine or if you wish to have your favorite dishes from home. Our cook can prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner. However our recommendation is to book him for breakfast and a 3-course dinner so that you can use the day to explore the stunning Samaná peninsula and be pampered in the evening by a sumptuous meal. We are happy to provide more information about our menu options and can send you prices and sample photos on request as well. Bartender and Waiter can also be hired for a nominal fee. For business events, incentive trips or weddings we can also arrange a gourmet catering from our affiliated catering company, one of the best of the whole Dominican Republic.

Drinks can stored in our huge fridges in the common kitchen and area so that you can always cool down with an ice-cold “Presidente” beer while enjoying the perfect ocean view from Samaná Ocean View Eco-Lodge. If desired we also provide a shopping service for all your drinks (and further groceries if needed). This allows you to enjoy your favorite drinks throughout the day without paying high restaurant or hotel prices. If desired (and booked) our bartender is happy to show you the most famous Caribbean cocktails.

Relaxing and Breathtaking

  • 4 of 5

The view was amazing no matternwhere you stood. The owner and staff were helpful every step of the way. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies. Be warned: there are several staircases on the premises. May be difficult to get around for someone with limited mobility!

Playa Las Galeras
Car: recommended

The property is located on a hilltop in La Guázuma, close to the quaint fishing village of Las Galeras on the Samaná peninsula. Samaná is usually rated as the most attractive region in the Dominican Republic with endless groves of palm trees and pristine deserted beaches.

Playa Rincon, voted one of the world’s top ten beaches by Conde Nast, the luxury travel magazine, is just a short 20 minutes away.

Las Galeras with small supermarkets, local bars (perfect to mingle with the locals and have a Dominican rum), restaurants, beach huts, and boat excursions to Playa Fronton and Playa Rincon, is reachable within 15 minutes.

If you prefer to explore the beautiful Samaná peninsula on your own, we recommend renting a car. If you just plan to leave the property occasionally, we are more than happy to organize local transportation for you.
