Relais & Châteaux Property Spotlight: Eden Roc Cap Cana
Serenity can be found surrounded by lush tropical forests and cliffs towering over pristine beaches—we’re talking Eden Roc Cap Cana, a secluded beachfront property on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic. Eden Roc is the only Relais & Châteaux property in this Caribbean country, and will delight in every aspect of the Relais & Châteaux experience.
With boutique poolside suites and oceanfront villas, the variety of accommodations here welcome guests on all kinds of holidays. With expansive verandas and rooms, all lodgings are designed to feel spacious while creating intimate privacy.
Depending on the escape you desire, you can pass the days by at the Solaya Spa or on the world-class Jack Nicklaus Punta Espada Golf Course. Or maybe it’s time to splash in the turquoise sea with a snorkel, take the reins at the equestrian centre then go on an eco adventure to a hidden cenote! If it’s a family vacation, Eden Roc’s Koko Kid’s Club will enchant and entertain the smaller visitors while giving you a bit more time to sit back, soak and bask.
However you spend your days, you cannot miss the culinary adventure here. With three restaurants and three bars—yes, six different dining experiences—Eden Roc offers “a Feast of Flavors.” The European-inspired Mediterraneo provides a bold and elegant fine dining venue with Italian family-style dinners on Friday evenings. The open pavilion at La Palapa, a little more relaxed (but still impeccable in taste), serves the freshest of fresh seafood—ceviche to sushi—in chic Caribbean style. Head to Uva Bar for spirits and fun cocktails after, or cozy up at the sophisticated Riva Bar, a lounge with live piano music and furnished with warm wood tones and leather inspired by Monte Carlo of the 1960s. With a unique vibe and menu in every setting, you’ll feel like you’ve been around the globe in just a few days, minus the discomfort of travel or jetlag.
Enviably, our Executive Chef at The Pointe Restaurant, Chef Carmen, will be attending the Relais & Châteaux Chef’s Congress taking place at Eden Roc this year. We will live vicariously through him, and can’t wait to see what inspirations he brings back from this esteemed gathering.
A positively out-of-the-ordinary experience, there’s plenty to discover at Eden Roc and it’s sure to be a delicious journey.
