why Samaná?

Samana Bay Golf Resort & Residences has a unique presence in the Samaná Province. We are fortunate to have two unique locations, one on the both the Northern and Southern coasts of the peninsula. Samana Bay Golf Resort & Residences is located in Samana, an idyllic beach town on the Northern side. The town is popular with independent travelers who prefer to avoid the larger resorts more common in other parts of the country, such as Punta Cana. 
The small-town tranquility and stunning beaches have attracted an interesting mix of locals: Dominicans from Santo Domingo who escape to Las Terrenas / Samana for long weekends and national holidays and a substantial community of expats from the USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and many other countries. As a result, Las Terrenas has a uniquely cosmopolitan feel that perfectly blends Caribbean beach town bliss with European flair.

Bounded on the north by the Samaná Peninsula, the bay measures about 40 miles (65 km) east-west and 15 miles (25 km) north-south.
