Located on the Dominican Republic’s north coast, Gansevoort Playa Imbert will feature 48 suites comprised of one and two-bedroom lofts; three-bedroom apartments with private plunge pools and spacious terraces; and a collection of four-bedroom penthouses. Each penthouse offers a private rooftop Jacuzzi. 

Floor-to-ceiling windows seamlessly blend the outdoors with the indoors offering dramatic seascapes from every guestroom. Standard amenities include modern kitchens, walk-in showers, custom bathtubs and natural stone finishes.

While the north coast has been well served by value-led all-inclusive resorts, it hasn’t had the contemporary, chic, service-led option that the urbane and discerning luxury traveler seeks; that is, until now. At Gansevoort Playa Imbert, VIPs can now relax in refinement while basking on the beaches of confectioners-sugar sand; enjoy scuba diving amidst shipwrecks; explore over 400 acres of a protected wilderness reserve or simply take in the nearby historic town.

At the resort’s center is a dramatic, three-tiered cascading infinity pool overlooking Playa Imbert’s crescent-shaped beach. 

A second, adults-only pool will open spring 2015. Other planned amenities include a fitness center, a day spa featuring a Hammam-style sauna and a meditation and yoga garden. Gansevoort Playa Imbert is located just 15 minutes from Puerto Plata Airport and a short drive from renowned surfing, kiteboarding, golf, tennis, horseback riding and more.
