The Four Seasons, and Cisneros Real Estate, are teaming up to bring the first ever Four Seasons property to the Dominican Republic called the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Dominican Republic at Tropicalia.
The resort is currently slated to open in early 2026 in the northeastern Dominican Republic along the southern shores of Samaná Bay on the private estate of the Cisneros family, one of South America’s wealthiest families, called Tropicalia.
The plans right now include 95 rooms along with 25 private residences including both three- and four-bedroom units, all steps from the beach, and all within Tropicalia’s diverse ecosystem of white-sand beaches; crystalline, aquamarine water and coral reefs; mountains, forests, mangroves, lagoons and rivers; and more.
The company says the resort will follow a “tropical modernist design” by Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, who will draw inspiration from the island’s native materials and colonial-era towns. All guest rooms will have private terraces, and green spaces and interior gardens will be prioritized throughout the resort’s rooms and common spaces.
Outside of the guest rooms, Four Seasons Resort Dominican Republic at Tropicalia will include a spa, fitness, and wellness facility that includes a yoga pavilion, a Kids For All Seasons children’s club, event spaces, and a number of on-site restaurants and bars including a yet-to-be-revealed specialty restaurant, a ceviche bar, coffee shop, and more.
Guests will also be able to go scuba diving, and sailing, and take catamaran tours and whale-watching excursions around Samaná Bay. Land excursions, including trips to nearby Los Haitises National Park, will also be available.
“We are thrilled to expand Four Seasons global portfolio in the Dominican Republic, a market that we have long been focused on as a luxury travel destination," says Alejandro Reynal, President and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
"We are proud to bring this project to life with our partners at Cisneros, who share our values of supporting the environments and communities in which we operate, and who we deeply admire for their work with Fundación Tropicalia. Together, we will remain focused on these values as we welcome guests and residents alike in 2026 and become stewards of this beautiful destination."
