The Dominican Republic means meandering beaches and shimmering blue water, but also historical cities, soaring mountains and thick jungle. Legacy and contrasts create a vibrant and attractive city, whose own identity can be found in every detail during your stay at the Royal Hideaway Luxury Hotels & Resorts in the Dominican Republic.
Santo Domingo is birthplace of colonial architecture in the Caribbean. Here you can find Christopher Columbus’ first home, now converted into a museum, the first cathedral in America, the first military complex or Ozama Fortress, and the first hospital constructed by the Spanish in the New World. The foundations of the country’s own history await discovery from the Royal Hideaway Luxury Hotels & Resorts in the Dominican Republic.
On the banks of the Ozama river, Santo Domingo preserves a UNESCO World Heritage Site colonial city, and buildings that combine both Caribbean and Hispanic tradition. Each one of its streets has witnessed a lively past, from the country’s occupation until its independence in 1865, and preserve treasures that reflect the wonders of a time when everything was still awaiting discovery.
An iconic city reminiscent of the Caribbean when the limits of the known world were redrawn awaits visitors, something that can also be seen in the charm of the Royal Hideaway Luxury Hotels & Resorts in Santo Domingo. A destination that combines the modernity of the financial district and the Bella Vista area with the cultural wealth safeguarded by the Convento de los Dominicos or the Museo de las Casas Reales – guardian of the treasures of the town of Taino. The New World was born and continues to prosper on a daily basis, crowning an extraordinary experience that can be enjoyed at the Royal Hideaway Luxury Hotels & Resorts in the Dominican Republic.
