About Samana Group
Samana Group is one of the largest real estate services companies and land owners in the Samana Peninsula.
Samana Group Founders have spent over 15 years in the Dominican Republic assembling land, building the Masterplan, and securing approvals to position the project for a shovel-ready development. The founders and partners successfully launched 6 boutique hotels and an apartment condominium in the region.
Our projects stand out by addressing 3 typical issues for development in exotic tourism destinations: lack of urban master planning, no lifestyle design, and low quality of infrastructure.
The uniqueness of our approach lies in the focus on affordable luxury and sustainability while providing the experience of living in an untouched natural environment.
