Region: The Caribbean

No tailor-made luxury holidays in Dominican Republic are complete without a visit to the vibrant capital, Santo Domingo. On arrival, you are guaranteed to be swept away by the heritage of the city. Not only is it home to both the first paved street in the Americas – and the first Cathedral, but most buildings date back to the 16th century and at least one of them was built by Christopher Columbus’ son. With its distinct Latin American charm, spending time in Santo Domingo is truly an unusual and rewarding experience that makes for a fabulous introduction to the rest of the country. 

Across the island to the north lies the Samaná Peninsula which, from November to April, is home to hundreds of migrating humpback whales that can be spotted from the shore. Hidden under steep cliffs are virgin sands with their own coral enclosures, accessible only by sea and the perfect location for snorkelling and diving expeditions. Elsewhere on the peninsula, adventures present themselves by way of jungle hikes, ziplines that will charge you through the forest canopy and coastal horse rides along brilliant beaches. 

Looking for further adrenaline? The towns of Cabarete and Sosua are the island’s go-to spots for surfing and kite-surfing – you don’t even need experience as we can arrange lessons with expert instructors. It’s from here that you’ll also find incredible deep-sea fishing. 

For more genteel exercise, it’s worth noting that the island is home to some of the best golf courses in the world. A particular mention must go to the Teeth of the Dog links at Casa de Campo, featuring 18 stunning holes set along the jagged, lava rock shoreline of the south coast. 

Then there are the beaches. The variety is staggering, with some 600 miles of them to choose from, featuring everything from quiet blue lagoons, perfect for lazy days, to surf beaches suitable for all levels. The best bit? Wherever you go in the Dominican Republic one thing is certain, you’ll be met by the friendliest people in the Caribbean

There are many reasons you would want to take your luxury holidays to Jamaica. Blessed with beautiful beaches, lush rainforest and soaring mountains, the jewel of the Caribbean is also home to some of the world’s favourite exports – from Red Stripe to Rastafariansim, Usain Bolt to Bob Marley, and endless sporting legends, the island punches well above its weight on the international stage. But not even Jamaica’s legendary bobsleigh team can compete with the sugary sands of Seven Mile Beach or the sapphire depths of the Blue Lagoon.

Further natural wonders are found on the north coast, where the majestic Dunn’s River Falls meets the opulent resorts of Montego Bay and the GoldenEye estate, where Ian Fleming brought James Bond to life. It’s easy to blow the budget here, but you don’t need celebrity status to experience the best of the island.

Head to Jamaica’s isolated southern shores and you’ll find Pelican Bar, a groovy floating shack where you can feast on catch of the day with your toes in the glittering water or make a beeline for a boat trip on the Black River before a dip in the stunning seven-tiered YS Falls.

A hike into the eastern Blue Mountains National Park delivers trails to suit all fitness levels, as well as natural springs and swimming spots, plus cultural gems too: pay a visit to a Rasatafari village or a maroon heritage site, home to the descendants of independent communities of former runaway slaves.

After losing yourself in nature, find your rhythm at one of Kingston’s dancehall nights: Jamaicans know how to party and the capital delivers good vibes, fresh beats and a mean rum punch at every turn – no wonder this vibrant island was crowned the happiest in the Caribbean in the World Happiness Report 2021.
