Playa Grande

From the stunning beaches to the 60-foot cliffs of the legendary Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed golf course and unspoiled nature preserve, Playa Grande is a perfect mix of sky, earth and water.

Occupying more than 2,000 acres on the north coast of the Dominican Republic with almost 7 miles of coastline overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Playa Grande is an unusually beautiful place. Dominated by its eponymous mile-long beach, followed by a more intimate beach, Playa Preciosa, Playa Grande is a virtually untouched land with a natural beauty framed by soft green mountains that culminate in a plateau of rolling hills, lush with native trees and royal palms. The surrounding area is pristine and unpopulated with underground springs supplying abundant fresh water.


Getting There

Playa Grande is centrally located in the heart of the Caribbean on the north coast of the Dominican Republic in a beautiful area of lush vegetation enriched by a changing palette of green and blue, rolling hills and the Atlantic Ocean.

To the west lies the town of Cabarete, one of th world’s top rated wind-surfing and kite-boarding destinations, and to the east, Samana, a natural deep water port famous for the humpback whales that roam its warm Caribbean waters in the winter.

The Dominican Republic is home to nine international airports. The nearest commercial airport to Playa Grande is Puerto Plata Gregorio Luperon International Airport (POP) and the best nearby airport for private jets is Nagua Samaná /El Catey Airport (AZS); both are approximately an hour’s drive from the resort.
