CAP CANA — Cap Cana is a beautiful place. It is also a very exclusive place.

But the first thing you notice about this luxurious enclave within the Punta Cana region of the Dominica Republic is that it is not pretentious. It is decidedly without flash.

Cap Cana is about luxury, distilled into its simplest form; about showing, not telling.

And that’s exactly what you get at La Palapa by Eden Roc, the beachfront eatery of the Eden Roc at Cap Cana hotel, located at the nearby Caleton Beach Club.

Blessed with a spectacular setting at Playa Caleton, this eatery focuses on the sea.

From red tuna tartar on a bed of guacamole to fresh-caught snapper with butter sauce, you get superb seafood prepared simply and exquisitely.


It’s exactly what you’d expect from a Relais and Chateaux property.

And more.
