HOST YOUR RETREAT HERE

 

Hi there, if your looking for a place to host an all inclusive fun exciting retreat somewhere different this year, check out Samana Ecolodge, our creative little jungle lodge is in a fantastic location, close to some of the most famous waterfalls in the country, not to mention a stone throw away from some of the most stunning, untouched, unspoilt beaches

Reasons for choosing Samana

Samana is the name of the Peninsular in which we are located, and in the centre of the Peninsular is a small fishing town called El Limon. El Limon is where we have built our Ecolodge. Not famous for its lemons but El Limon is famous for its huge waterfalls and pristine beaches. Between Las Terrenas, El Limon and Samana are plenty of fun packed tours filled with adventure and excitment, from ziplining through the dominican tropical jungle, to Whale watching in the bay of Samana as they came into the area each year to breed. There are national parks and beautiful islands to visit, know as Cayas Lavantado and Los Haititas. The secret waterfalls, including 4 majestic waterfalls, we are they only company that offers this secret waterfall tour and its a must see. You will get to experience some really beautiful view points as well as jumping and swimming in the waterfalls if you choose too. A.T.V. quod biking, on and off road. Surfing lessons on playa Banita, And of course maditation and yoga on the beaches and much more. This area is a big step away from the normal tourist trail, and thats why we love it, you will get to see the real Dominican culture and how the people live.

Whats a night like in Samana Ecolodge

Not only is Samana Ecolodge a really unique experience, for example getting to stay in a tree top bungalows with veiws for miles across tropical terrein, or staying in a cosy hideaway hut to have some couple time, or wanting to have an adventure holiday as a family or a group of friends in the loft, we try to cater to all types of desires. A day on the Lodge normally starts with waking up and heading to the open outside kitchen, and enjoying a healthy colorful breakfast, while looking out over the land and watching nature as she slowly wakes up.

After breaky, your day could be packed full of adventure if you wanted to do one of the many tours listed here, or if you just wanted to relax on the land we have many cosy chillout areas with tables and seats all built from local, natural materials from the land, hammocks and swinging seats etc, card games and music. The lodge is a very quiet place to relax and do nothing without any interruptions.

We also have two natural stone pools that are fed from the river that flows from the waterfalls. the natural river water goes through a filter cleaning system before arriving into our pools and its so cold and refreshing, on a hot day its the perfect thing. We highly reccommend sitting out star gazing at night by the pool with a glass of wine or two.

The Yoga deck is built high off the ground with stunning views over farm land and mountains in front. When the deck is not being used for Yoga, we have cosy bean bags and hammocks up there so this is a really lovely, cool breezy place to sit back with a book and just marvel over the views and relax.
