Following the recent success of Turks and Caicos, and NYC, Gansevoort Hotel Group has made the leap to the Caribbean. Gansevoort Playa Imbert will feature 48suites 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 boasting private rooftop Jacuzzis. Floor-to-ceiling windows seamlessly blend the outdoors with the indoors offering dramatic seascapes from every guestroom, while modern interiors provide understated opulence with standard amenities like state-of-the art kitchens, walk-in showers, custom bathtubs and natural stone finishes.
“Gansevoort prides itself on bringing a whole new level of service and amenities to emerging destinations,” said Gansevoort founder and president, Michael Achenbaum. “From Playa Imbert to Cabarete, we love the vibe and beauty of the north coast and believe there’s a unique opportunity to create something truly special for the luxury market here.”
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, guests can now relax in refinement while basking on the beaches of confectioners-sugar sand; enjoy spectacular scuba diving amidst wrecks; explore over 400 acres of a protected wilderness reserve or simply take in the nearby historic town.
In true Gansevoort fashion, the one-stop destination will offer guests impeccable style, service and amenities. At the resort’s center is a dramatic, 3-tiered cascading infinity pool overlooking Playa Imbert’s crescent-shaped beach. Dining at Baia Lounge, now open to the public, features gourmet Mediterranean specialties and Asian-inspired fare flawlessly executed by Executive Chef Giancarlo Fiori, whose credits include the highly acclaimed Peninsula House and world-famous, Michelin 3-star El Bulli restaurant in San Sebastian Spain. Downstairs, La Cantina Wine + Cigar Cellar offers an impressive collection of wines from around the world and a fully-stocked humidor in an exclusive, underground setting.
A mere 15 minute ride away from the Puerto Plata Airport, we have no doubt that Gansevoort Playa Imbert will become a must visit luxury destination.
