"I invested in Samana Group because of the vision of building a unique enterprise on a global scale. I was captivated by the location - the Caribbean, Dominican Republic, Samana, where I hope to buy or build a second (or third) house. I was convinced by the previous experience of Marek Zmysłowski and the scale of his former projects."
“Samana Peninsula is one of my favorite places I've been to, it has great potential of becoming one of the most beautiful cities in the Caribbean with a fast-growing number of tourists every year. I believe and share the vision of Samana group of growing a proper sustainable development of the area.”
"First of all, for the love of the place. I found Samana 12 years ago when I was exploring the Dominican Republic. When I went to Las Terrenas for the first time, I think I even said aloud, "I'll live here someday" and you can see that the universe listened. Secondly, I believe in the idea of private cities, and Marek and partners are a guarantee of business success."
"I invested in Samana Group because I want to have my own place on earth somewhere in an exotic location knowing that it is part of a larger whole, perfectly managed."

"By investing in sustainable development in the Caribbean, I can contribute to improving the quality of life for people living there. This can include supporting better access to healthcare, education, and other basic services, as well as creating opportunities for economic and social mobility, and ultimately, helping to promote a better standard of living for the communities in the region."
"For me, Samana Group is a combination of real estate, modern technologies (e.g. modular construction, blockchain) and people with great experience and vision. I believe that these things will be crucial to create the perfect place for many groups of people (including me) and that's why I decided to invest in Samana Group."
"Looking for opportunities to diversify my investments into foreign markets, I came across the Samana Group project which I found appealing in terms of its idea, innovation, location, and scope of operation. Despite the fact that investing in a seed round is quite risky, I decided to get in on it right away due to the greater chance of significant growth in a relatively short period of time. Nevertheless, knowing Marek Zmysłowski's previous achievements, there can be no doubt that this will be something spectacular and it will end in a business success."
"I love creating products and their vision. This time the vision of a Private City in the Caribbean absorbed me completely. Samana Group's projects are a true store of value in the best sense of the word."
"I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to do business with Marek Zmysłowski and Samana Group. You've inspired me to get back into the real estate market after many years of staying on the sidelines."
"Knowing the history of Marek - the frontman of the project, makes me feel comfortable knowing he will deliver the promise. Additionally, as an unexperienced investor, I appreciate the flexibility of a convertible loan - the tool I was offered allows me to adjust my investment strategy while watching how the project develops."
