Owning an apartment just a few steps from one of Samana’s most beautiful beaches could be seen as a true privilege. Situated on the country’s northeast section, in Samana Province, the possibilities of ownership are real. The “Playa Bonita Beach Residences” is a developing gated beachfront community in Samana, situated on 320,000 square meters in “Playa Bonita.” The project is situated on the far-edge of “Playa Bonita” beach, in “Las Terrenas,” a small fishing village turned cosmopolitan overlooking the majestic Atlantic Ocean.
Its 300-meter beachfront features the best a tropical paradise can offer: fine white sand, crystal clear shallow waters, an endless line of coconut trees and an overall paradise-like landscape.
The project consists of villas and apartments, running from 88 to 240 square meters, a clubhouse, shopping and recreational areas, a restaurant, swimming pool, hiking or horseback riding trails, impressive gardens and a wide variety of water sports.
Construction of the Playa Bonita Beach Residences is running at full speed, says Manuel Lara Hernández, one of the project developers. The first phase has been completed successfully and most of the apartment units have been sold.
He showed the visitor the extensive finished grounds and the buildings under construction, which will be ready to deliver in 2015. The first construction phase of the project clubhouse has been completed, featuring a swimming pool and pool bar, and said that the second phase will soon be completed. There are units available in the “La Playa” and “Los Cocos” areas.
“La Playa” Apartments
This area consists of nine beachfront buildings, featuring 74 apartments. Each apartment has a large balcony offering beachfront panoramic views, suitable for social gatherings. Apartments range in size from 140 to 280 square meters.
“Los Cocos” Residences
This section features six buildings with 36 two-bedroom apartments, including 12 penthouses. The buildings are located just steps away from the beautiful beach. Sizes range from 88-195 square meters.
The Seaside Village of “Las Terrenas”
“Playa Bonita” is located eight minutes from downtown “Las Terrenas,” a once sleepy fishing village surrounded by majestic mountains and some of the world’s most beautiful beaches. During the last 25 years the village has been discovered by an international community that now calls “Las Terrenas” home. It is currently the most prosperous town in the entire province of Samana.
Hotels tend to be small and intimate, but there are a few large all-inclusive resorts and residential areas. Excellent international restaurants offer visitors the best culinary choices, especially European dishes. The town features supermarkets, pharmacies, medical centers and many other services.
The Playa Bonita Beach Residences has a privileged location. It is only a few minutes driving distance from the main avenue in “Las Terrenas.” And, 20 minutes away from the Juan Bosch International Airport; almost two hours from Santo Domingo’s Las Americas International Airport; a little bit more than 2.5 hours from the country’s central region and less than three hours from Punta Cana, on the country’s east coast.
