Fodor's Expert Review Gansevoort Playa Imbert

Playa Imbert, Calle Bruno Philip 5, Sosúa, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic Fodor's Choice

An opulent oasis, the edgy, innovative Gansevoort resort provides full one- to four-bedroom apartments overlooking a magnificent bay. The slick enclave offers two infinity pools, two classy restaurants, a private beach, and a l'Occitane Spa. The elaborate breakfast is served waterfront, and any of the options will please you. A fitness center is fully equipped, and if you would prefer pampering over pumping, the spa has wellness therapists from France and India. You can find serenity here, too, particularly at the quiet pool with its bubbly hot tub; the beach beds and poolside cabanas whisper siesta. Yoga classes at sunset are oceanfront, and butlers can set you up with snorkeling gear, kayaks, and Hobie Cats. Concierges can arrange excursions from an exhilarating visit to Damajuaga Waterfalls to tours of rum and cigar factories, but many guests don't want to move from this pristine resort.
