·      Lounging in beachside beds. 

·      Exploring Scape Park: zip lines, animal encounters, and a dip in the Hoyo Azul cenote.

·      Play championship golf and pamper yourself at the Solaya Spa.

Suggested stay: 3-5 days: It’s an easy flight from the east coast and convenient for those of you seeking a weekend family getaway. Be warned – once you settle into your new home away from home, you won’t want to leave.  

Riviera Glam in the Caribbean OR your Not-So-Humble Abode

This is one stylish locale; imagine French and Italian Riviera-level service with Caribbean comfort and charm. As you soak in the glamour, the staff will offer warm island greetings and treat you like the VIP you are.

The resort caters to a select crowd with only 34 suites and villas  – each with its own private pool and gazebo. The Family Residences boast spacious bedrooms and living rooms, relaxation areas, and private kitchens for your personal chef to prepare your favorite meals. Your kids will love the Jacuzzi tubs, indoor and outdoor rain showers, plush robes and slippers … and the smart technology iPads that control everything. With the resort’s flawless attention to detail, your expectations will be easily met – no matter how high. There’s even an extensive pillow menu!

Play All Day

We suggest you hop in a private golf cart and make your first stop at the Eden Roc Private Beach Club. Sink into a plush beach bed and take in endless blue skies and crystal clear waters. Watch your kids play in the infinity pool and bury their toes in white sands while your butler serves you a Dominican rum cocktail.  

Your little ones will love Koko Kid’s Club. Thanks to mascot parrots, Kiki and Koko, your children will be speaking Spanish in no time. The club offers a packed schedule of activities that includes Koko’s Mini Spa – think braids, princess manicures, and fun facials. While they’re busy having fun, you can escape to theSolaya Spa overlooking the beach for grown-up pampering and fitness.

If you have time, take your golf cart for a spin to Blue Vision Adventures for water sports or Los Establos for equestrian classes, or charter a private Rich & Famous catamaran for cruises and snorkeling. Your family won’t want to miss Scape Park’s animal encounters, where kids can see parrots, iguanas and monkeys up close, zip line above trees, and hike to the Hoyo Azul: a stunning cold water grotto that’s a true fountain of youth. After your visit, you’ll look and feel years younger.

  

Wine and Dine

With its creative menu and panoramic views, on-site dining at La Palapa is worth the trip to Eden Roc alone. Guests lounge by the ocean while enjoying local seafood and new Dominican cuisine. Make sure you try the plantain mofongo with fish and creole sauce and the bocachico fish; there’s also a kids’ menu that features local and traditional favorites. 

The Blue Grill + Bar  fuses Peruvian and Japanese cuisine. Don’t miss out on the tuna tacos and kakuni blue – and make sure you snag an outside table. If you’re in the mood for more upscale dining, head to Mediterraneo, the resort’s signature restaurant, to tantalize your taste buds.

When you leave Eden Roc, you’ll tell everyone it’s been a pleasure and that you look forward to more island warmth soon. With new beachfront suites scheduled to open this spring, you should book your next trip as soon as you can.
