Natura CabaÑas, Dominican Republic
809/571-1507 or naturacabana.com
The Dominican Republic offers more than giant resorts and all-inclusive buffets. Natura Cabañas shows another side of the Caribbean, with a private beach for just 11 palm-thatched bungalows. The modern spa’s services include a heavenly chocolate wrap.
Eco cred: The cabanas are built from natural materials. Screened walls and windows keep it comfortable without air-conditioning.
Insider’s tip: Unwind at the resort’s new yoga pavilion. Classes include one that mixes yoga and Pilates.
