It just might be the dreamiest spot for a wedding and honeymoon in the Dominican Republic — and maybe the whole region.
The Island Suite, a romantic retreat at Sanctuary Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic, wows with some exceptional features we’ve not seen anywhere else on our island adventures.
Part of the adults-only all-inclusive resort’s premium section, The Castle, the 3,000-square-foot, two-story roost boasts two bedrooms (because you can’t see each other the night before the wedding, right?) and spacious living and dining areas that are perfect for pre-event entertaining. More perks: Not one but three interior ocean-view plunge pools – in the bathroom, and a pair flanking the living room – perfect for private dipping a deux.
But the piece de resistance is the suite’s “backyard:” a water’s-edge private peninsula carpeted with a lawn and pierced with swaying palms, where couples can host an al fresco ceremony for up to 100 guests.
It’s an idyllic location that’s guaranteed to please even the pickiest twosomes and to yield an envy-inducing album of tropical wedding photos.
And with the resort’s wedding planners handling all the details, arrangements will be stress-free. Your only challenge: trimming the guest list.
