Nestled between the mountains and the sea, The Bannister Hotel is set within an exclusive residential development overlooking Samana Bay. Wonderful sea views, a full-service marina, a spa and gym, pools, tennis courts and the first Café del Mar in America, culminate in a stunning resort with a wealth of year-round activities.

    This is the perfect place to get away from it all. The spacious and elegant rooms overlook the bay or the mountains while everything you need is on site including restaurants and bars.

    Head to Café del Mar for a leisurely day in the sun by the infinity-edge pool or take a bike and discover the numerous undisturbed stretches of palm fringed, beaches along the peninsula. Alternatively, hire a yacht for some deep-sea fishing, diving, or snorkelling. From January to March there is a unique opportunity to see the hump-back whales in their natural calving and mating grounds in Samaná bay.
