It features fifty-five spacious suites, with most offering stunning ocean views and personal plunge pools and a private beach club with seven lavish oceanfront suites, its own pool, bar, and exclusive beach area.

A special focal point of the lobby is the 17th century hand-carved wooden archway that encases the entrance to the hotel's boutique where traditional Dominican art sculptures adorn windows.

Most of the furnishings for the property's guestrooms, food and beverage outlets, meetings facilities and restaurants were specially selected and imported from Spain and Indonesia. Guest services and amenities are tailored to surpass even the most upscale travelers' expectations.
