Party on the Beach! How to Plan the Ultimate New Year Getaway

December 27, 2019

Tired of doing the same thing every year during the holidays? 2020 is just around the corner, but it’s not too late to start planning your New Year getaway. Whether you and your friends are looking for an excuse to escape the cold and celebrate the New Year in style, you and your sweetheart need a romantic escape to spend meaningful time together on the beach or you’re traveling solo and looking to make new connections, our all-inclusive, adults-only resorts in the Dominican Republic are the places to be as the clock strikes midnight.

The Dominican Republic is everything you would imagine the Caribbean to be and more. Think picturesque sandy beaches and blue waters with swaying palm trees framed by the breathtaking mountains and lush rainforests in the distance. Plus, the cities offer just as much charm as the beaches. 2020 is sure to be a success when you spend it with us here.

Choose between our two stylish accommodations for your New Year getaway. V Samaná is located in Las Terrenas, Samaná while V Heavens is in the Playa Dorada resort complex near the city of Puerto Plata. You cannot go wrong with either choice. Both of our beachside resorts offer all of the ingredients for the party vacation of a lifetime and a total reset for the New Year.

Spend your days in the Dominican Republic in any way that suits you. Our luxury resorts have it all. Lounge in a private cabana near one of our infinity pools, and make the most of each day with full-service drinks and snacks served to you at your request. We offer handcrafted Carribbean cocktails, ice-cold beers, refreshing wine and more. Nibble on your favorite appetizers and dine on delicious brunch and lunch items from our pool bar menu.

Wander down to the beach during the day and refresh yourself in the cool water. You can even, take a surfing, windsurfing, scuba diving or a kayak lesson to get some extra time on the water. No matter if it’s your first time or if you’re an expert, our instructors will make sure you get exactly what you need.

Visit our excursion desk upon arrival, and choose between an array of activities to learn more about the surrounding areas, as well. We offer tours of the cities and the mountains, whale-watching excursions, mountain biking expeditions, hiking to waterfalls, golfing at our Playa Dorada location and more. There’s no shortage of things to see and do.

Make sure to stop by our spa during your New Year getaway to renew your mind, body and spirit. Relaxation and rejuvenation are a must while staying with us. We offer couples massages in a romantic setting so you can enjoy pampering together. Or, book a facial, a body wrap or a mani-pedi to get primped and prepared for New Years Eve celebrations.

Before the beach party commences, we recommend reserving a space for dinner at one of our incredible onsite restaurants. Both of our resorts offer several places to choose from, and the culinary options abound. Embark on a journey loaded with Dominican flavors if you’re in the mood to eat from the local cuisine or taste fresh seafood, Italian specialties, and other Mediterranean delights. Champagne flights, sparkling specialties and delectable desserts are always on the table, as well.

As the sun goes down, stop by one of our chic and modern party venues. Our events team will be sure everything is decorated to the nines, and our guest DJs will help get your party started for a night to remember. Dim lights, delicious beverages and a lively atmosphere will help you beckon in the new year in the perfect setting. Chill out in the lounge area for a more calm vibe, or get up and get excited as you groove to the latest sounds. Our dance floor will stay open late so you can, too. The opportunity to bond with old friends and make new ones is just around the corner at either of our hotels.

Whether you’ve made New Year’s resolutions or you simply wish to have an excuse to get out of town, our Dominican Republic retreats are not to be missed. Tailor your vacation experience to fulfill every wish and want you could imagine, and say goodbye to 2019 while welcoming 2020 at one of our V Collection resorts.
