With spring just around the corner, it's time to visit one of our favorite #luxelistapproved destinations, the Dominican Republic. Perfect for both honeymooners and families, you can find everything from pristine beaches and aquatic adventure to ziplining and horseback tours.
The Dominican Republic is no stranger to luxury, and these #luxelistapproved resorts exemplify that in every way.
The first resort we will feature, is the Alsol Sanctuary Cap Cana. Just ten minutes from the Punta Cana airport, the Sanctuary Cap Cana is in a prime location. While their suites are amazing, their swim out villas are the true stunner and their Honeymoon Suite is over the top. Sanctuary Cap Cana also boasts five restaurants and bars, five pools and a luxurious spa so you never have to leave the property.

The next resort we love is the Amanera. The Amanera is a 60-minute drive from either the Puerto Plata or Samana El Catey airports, lying between the two villages of Rio San Juan and Cabrera. Tucked within the Caribbean jungle, Amanera overlooks the ocean from Playa Grande, whose golden sands make it one of the region's most beautiful beaches. The Amanera boasts a spectacular golf course with a 7,085-yard layout with ten holes played directly on the coastline. All of Amanera's 25 casitas sit on the cliffs above Playa Grande Beach offering unobstructed ocean views.
