Offering much more than sun, sand and beach, Gansevoort Playa Imbert is what we’d describe as a peaceful retreat to kickback and relax. Bang on the beachfront, in Sosúa, it offers spacious accommodation with 48 suites, all designed in contemporary Mediterranean style. Offerings such as three-bedroom apartments, loft suites, four-bedroom penthouses, premium beachfront three-bedroom suites and ocean front three-bedroom suites, among others, make sure you get sweeping views of the locale and access to the private beach.
Food options include delicious fare at Baia, the Mediterranean restaurant, and Nikkei cuisine – a fusion of Japanese and Peruvian culinary traditions – at Aguazul restaurant.
Take advantage of the wide range of treatments and massages at Gansevoort Spa by L’Occitane. The relaxing aromachologie massage uses Swedish effleurage, Chinese Acupressure and Balinese techniques to ease your tension, while the almond detoxifying balance promotes the elimination of toxins and excess water.
Make most of the sun, infinity pool and adults-only pool. However, if you can quite tear yourself way from the pools, there’s a lot you can do: scuba diving, fishing, kite-boarding and surfing. You could also take a boat ride down the Yasica River, hike through El Choco National Park or go golfing at Playa Dorada Golf Course. And if you are holidaying with family, do take the kids to Monkey Jungle. The jungle’s jazzed up with waterfalls, suspension bridge and caves. And yes, there are monkeys!
Oh! If you think your pets deserve a vacation, take them along; Gansevoort Playa Imbert adores pets.
How to get there: From Puerto Plata Airport, a 15-minute drive (and a 90-minute drive from Santiago airport) will take you to Gansevoort Playa Imbert.
