Bahia Principe Hotels & ResortsBahia Principe Grand Cayacoa is set to reopen this fall in Samana Bay in the Dominican Republic, and on offer are natural beauty, and adventure-soaked water- and land-based fun.

The family-friendly, 284-room all-inclusive resort, with views of Samana Bay—perhaps spotting a whale or two is in the cards—features two pools, water sports galore, including paddle-surfing, kayaking and snorkeling, five restaurants, four bars and due to its location, access to an array of offsite excursions.

There are full-boat day adventures to see Los Haitises National Park, the largest mangrove forest in the Caribbean, or visits to caves and cays. Must-visit attractions also include horseback riding through the jungle to visit Salto del Limon, an impressive cascading waterfall, as well as the largely untouched Playa Rincon.

For those clients who enjoy an adrenaline rush, activities include ziplining and tours in safari-type trucks through mountainous landscapes. In addition, buggy rides will take guests through the peninsula’s coffee plantations, a natural oasis known as “Caño Frio,” and hidden beaches.

As part of the brand’s Grand category, guests can enjoy unlimited WiFi, three a la carte dinners in restaurants per week of stay, spacious rooms, lounge chairs, beach umbrellas and towel service for the beach, plus pools and one hour per day of free paddle surf, kayaks or snorkeling.

“We’re pleased to welcome back visitors to one of our beloved properties and continue expanding our offerings in Dominican Republic,” said Luisa Salord, sr. v.p. of global sales, contracting & distribution, in a press statement. “Bahia Principe Grand Cayacoa is an ideal destination for those looking to discover nature and experience the authentic Dominican Republic. Guests can savor the best views from their room and guests staying between December and March may even spot humpback whales that visit the area during that season.”
