Gansevoort Playa Imbert will feature 48 suites 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 penthouse offers a private rooftop Jacuzzi. 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.
While the north coast has been well served by value-led all-inclusive resorts, it hasn’t lacked a contemporary, chic, service-led option that urbane and discerning luxury travelers seek; until now. At Gansevoort Playa Imbert, guests can relax in refinement while basking on the beaches of confectioners-sugar sand; enjoy spectacular scuba diving amidst shipwrecks; explore over 400 acres of protected wilderness reserve or simply take in the nearby historic town.
At the resort’s center is a dramatic, 3-tiered cascading infinity pool overlooking Playa Imbert’s crescent-shaped beach. A second, adults-only pool will open spring 2015. Dining at Baia Lounge, now open, 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.
Other planned amenities include a fitness center, a world-class day spa featuring a Hammam-style sauna, and a meditation and yoga garden. Gansevoort Playa Imbert is located just 15 minutes from Puerto Plata Airport and a short drive from renowned surfing, kiteboarding, golf, tennis, horseback riding and more.
Rates at Gansevoort Playa Imbert range from $595 to $5,000 per night, including breakfast for two.
