Villa Arakai

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6.5 baths
Escape to the hilltop at this breezy open-air villa on the Samana Peninsula in the Dominican Republic. Gaze out over a lush canopy of tropical greenery while you rest your arms on the edge of the swimming pool. At night, move over to the hot tub and see if you can spot any constellations. The next morning, have breakfast at Baraonda, a lovely restaurant across from the beach.
 Work on your tan from a sun lounger or stretch out for an afternoon nap in the sunbed. If you’d prefer to read in the shade, follow the dark wood-decking of the terrace to the spacious hay-thatched palapa, where even more seating awaits. Then, fix yourself a light lunch in the chef’s kitchen, where high-end appliances and a brick oven offer endless culinary possibilities.
 Need a break from the sun? Turn up the air conditioning, set up the projector screen, and pick out a favorite movie to watch with the kids or see if there’s anything good to stream on Apple TV. Later, sit down in the formal dining area for a group dinner. Then, mix up a few tropical cocktails and move the party to the lower-terrace so you can enjoy the view while you chat with friends and loved ones.
 After a morning stroll on Punta Bonita Beach, make your way to Restaurante Luis, a legendary seafood spot loved by the locals on the sands of Playa Coson. For dinner, the steak-au-poivre at La Terrasse is thought to be 1 of the best meals in the country. Then, treat yourself to a night of expertly crafted cocktails and dancing at El Mosquito’s open-air lounge.
