Natura Cabana Boutique Hotel & Spa
Natura Cabana is a tiny oasis of supreme calm, especially when compared to the typical Dominican mega-resort. This chill, shade-dappled Eden amid a pleasant grove of trees is filled with the sounds of tweeting birds and the muted roar of the surf just yards away. Natura Cabanas is small and low-key, but that doesn't make it boring. True, peace and relaxation are the name of the game here, so lying on the gorgeous, tranquil beach tends to be top priority. However, the resort also helps arrange excursions to nearby waterfalls and horseback riding trails for those looking for a dose of action. The hotel has regular yoga classes (everyday but Sunday) on its beach-facing yoga platform.
