a sublime escape: the dominican republic

Finally… pictures of our escape to one of the best kept secrets in the Caribbean.  To celebrate the hub’s graduation and 3 years of insanely hard work, we indulged in a place that is truly sublime.  We stayed in the Dominican Republic’s Sublime Samana.

Very rarely do we ever consider returning to the same destination (too many other places on our life list to visit), but this one is the exception.   Our flight was super easy from our Gulf Coast origin, and the nearly 2hr transfer to our hotel didn’t feel near as long.  If you are lucky enough to be close to JFK airport in New York, then you can fly JetBlue directly into the newly opened Samana airport and you’re just 20 minutes away from the hotel.

It had been 9 years since we had a holiday with just the two of us, so we felt it was time.

I found this amazing spot via Mr. & Mrs. Smith, however when I tried to book it, they did not have any rooms available at the advertised discount, so I ended up booking via the hotels website directly and it was just as cheap.  Sublime Samana is also part of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and it very much lived up to its reviews.  It is incredibly chic and relaxing.  The rooms were fantastic, the location could NOT be beat, the food was beyond delicious, and even the music was cool (playing the most recent Daft Punk album!)
