Secret Samaná

The Dominican Republic's northeastern peninsula is quickly becoming a hot spot for fabulous boutique hotels and raw, natural beauty (never mind the twisty, bumpy roads).

A two-story Victorian-style plantation home, The Peninsula House is undoubtedly one of the finest small hotels in these Caribbean parts. Owners Cary Guy and Marie-Claude Thiebault kitted out the interiors with a cosmopolitan mix of treasures: Surrounding an inner courtyard downstairs, the library, billiards rooms, and salons are decorated with Turkish carpets and French settees; upstairs, you'll find rooms filled with wardrobes made from hand-carved doors from India, antique nesting tables from France, and framed Tibetan prayer book pages and 19th-century Balinese puppets hanging on walls.

The Peninsula House rates start at $550, including breakfast; 809/962-7447 or thepeninsulahouse.com.
