“Spring is the time of plans and Projects”


The destinations of the Dominican Republic have achieved a special place in international tourism. From many parts of the world they come to the land of merengue to have fun, relax and have a great time.

The country has been part of numerous movies and countless weddings.

The Dominican Republic is full of charming tourist destinations for the whole family with different levels of luxury and adventure, according to each pocket. The country has Caribbean beaches and also the Atlantic Ocean.

So, without further ado, let’s start with this top 5 of the best tourist attractions in the Dominican Republic for 2022.

1.Punta Cana, Altagracia

At number 1 we have this famous point in the Dominican Republic, a Caribbean paradise of soft sand popular for its great hotels and resorts.

Among them, the two that stand out the most are the Sanctuary Cap Cana and the Occidental Punta Cana, with a very good quality-price proposal and excellent gastronomic offers.

It is such a famous tourist destination that almost all major airlines have direct flights to this site.

What everyone misses to see and love as Punta Cana is really Bávaro, as it is an area that gives you a fantastic atmosphere.

Among the activities that you can enjoy there are, together with the beaches, tours to Monkeyland, a coffee plantation and safari at the same time, as well as horseback riding along the coastline.

You can also roll down the longest zip line in the Caribbean, and at night dance at the Disco Imagine Punta Cana.

A high percentage of international tourists make a stopover on this beautiful island, located in the territory of the National Park of the East, crossing the Catuano Channel starting on the coast and heading south.

The native Taínos, who initially inhabited the island, named it Andamay, and over time it became Isla Saona.

The recently-ranked #1 resort in Punta Cana, Eden Roc Cap Cana, is bringing the Adirondacks to its Caribbean shores for a series of curated culinary experiences this April 6-9, 2022. Executive Chef Loïc Leperlier of The Point resort will bring the resort’s signature communal style dining to the only Relais & Châteaux in the Dominican Republic, joining Eden Roc’s very own Chef Adriano Venturini for a collaborative gastronomy journey that celebrates the best of both properties.

Eden Roc Cap Cana has a diverse culinary program helmed by Chef Venturini, with various restaurants onsite each with their own distinctive personality that is celebrated through striking décor and unique curated menus. From the property’s signature fine-dining restaurant Mediterraneo to the convivial beachside La Palapa and all-day BLUE Bar & Grill, each experience is complemented by an unparalleled setting that will be activated through this partnership.

The Point is an 11-room all-inclusive Relais & Châteaux resort in the Adirondacks in New York. Originally built as a Great Camp for William Avery Rockefeller II, The Point offers guest an intimate “house party” atmosphere complete with communal wine-paired dinners, daily cocktail parties and self-service bars sprinkled throughout the property. The Point comes to Eden Roc Cap Cana in April while their own kitchen undergoes a long-awaited renovation that will be unveiled this summer. The historic kitchen has served The Point since the 1930s and its new design will enhance the creativity of Chef Loïc Leperlier and his team, while preserving beloved amenities such as a vintage General Electric refrigerator from 1932. With the redesign underway, Chef Leperlier will be bringing The Point’s culinary heritage to Eden Roc Cap Cana’s tables, and this will be the only opportunity to experience a taste of The Point while the property undergoes these kitchen updates.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Chef Loïc Leperlier this April to our beachfront oasis and introducing our guests to the communal and extravagant dining experience for which The Point is known,” says Managing Director at Eden Roc Cap Cana Stefano Baratelli. “The multi-day experience will capture the flavors of our resort and pair them with the exceptional talent of Chef Leperlier, who has created a unique gastronomy program in the Adirondacks.”

“I’m honored to be collaborating with Chef Venturini to bring a taste of The Point to Eden Roc Cap Cana,” said Chef Loïc Leperlier. “From our nightly communal dinners to our signature barbeque lunches every Saturday, The Point’s culinary heritage is built on community and coming together. This collaboration with Chef Venturini and Eden Roc underscores The Point’s longtime dining traditions, while celebrating my friendship and shared culinary ethos with Chef Venturini.”

Chef Leperlier’s professional tenure has included Michelin Star restaurants and Five-Star resorts in Europe and French Polynesia where he perfected his farm-to-table philosophy. His style of cooking combines French cuisine with his Réunion roots accented by Indian, African and Chinese influences, all of which he will bring to the plates of Eden Roc Cap Cana.

This lavish mix of events is designed to encourage guests to indulge in The Point’s iconic culinary offerings as they please, whether it be the decadent nightly experiences or a day-time casual meal. After years of a closely connected professional relationship and friendship, Chefs Leperlier and Venturini are thrilled to come together for four days of spectacular dining beside the waves and beneath the stars, a long-time dream finally realized at Eden Roc Cap Cana.

The April program consists of four evenings with curated menus spread across the property’s elegant, Mediterranean-reminiscent restaurants — La Palapa, BLUE Bar & Gril, and Mediterraneo. The program will end in a spectacular dinner and wine event where Chef Leperlier and Chef Venturini serve up their best dishes in a collaborative menu.
