GANSEVOORT DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, CARIBBEAN
THERE’S NOTHING QUITE SO SATISFYING
As entering your hotel room for the first time and feeling just a teensy bit smug. The sheer size of the contemporary, airy loft suites at the Gansevoort are enough to bring a silent ‘wow’ from even the pickiest traveller. With double day beds looking out over the golden crescent beach, state-of-the-art kitchens, walk-in showers and private plunge pools, it’s tempting to stay in your ‘apartment’, phoning down for room service and catching up on the Kardashians.

The chilled vibe of this hotel is perfect for winding down post-wedding, so if your mantra is eat, sleep, sunbathe (repeat), you’re likely to do a little dance of happiness on arrival. With two pools, a games room, cigar bar and wine cellar, fantastic restaurants on-site serving everything from simply grilled fresh fish to dim sum and sushi, staying put looks like the hot ticket.
The brilliant staff couldn’t be more helpful, from remembering your favourite drink, table or sun lounger, to recommending day trips (presuming you can muster the energy to set foot outside, that is). Oh, and just to make it feel even more like a home-from-home, you can even bring your dog. Yes, really.
