Where happiness lives


Where Humanity is the Destination

At Samaná Bay we still believe in the goodness of humanity, and we believe that remarkable things happen when people come together to affect change. Somewhere along the way, we lost something. Something big, something important, something fundamental to us as human beings. We have become so busy doing, browsing, working, that we have forgotten to pause, to ponder, and to take in what is around us and who is amongst us. Our compassion, our empathy, and our connection to one another is a vital part of what makes us human. 

This is why we created Alma de Samaná — to normalize the joy of connecting to each other and the beautiful world around us. Samana’ Bay is about celebrating life’s natural charms, being present, grateful, and attuned to the magical rhythm of the universe. Because at Alma de Samaná, Humanity is the Destination.  


More than a resort, we embrace the community

Spirit of Generosity / Being Human

Our spirit is social, open, generous, and warm. We embrace everyone, whatever their background, their color or gender. Our welcome is that of a friend – you can say we are like a big warm hug. “We don’t have fun, unless everyone gets some”

Joyful & Daring

We know that life is what you make of it, so we choose to celebrate it – from little moments of joy, to the bigger life-changing experiences. We listen to the tunes, we take in the views, we indulge in the freshens of nature. We sing, we laugh we dance together. Isn’t life just wonderful!

Fairness & Balance

Fairness/ Balance is not just a value we believe in, it is a responsibility we carry. We know life is not always smooth-sailing and can go off course. We strive to bring an order, a rhythm and a balance to it all. Balance is all about the harmony, within and with our surrounding.

The Alma Family

The Executive Team

Our management team has decades of experience in the real estate development and hospitality industries. To ensure the vision of the project is executed flawlessly and remains authentic to the location, we have partnered with the very best in the industry.  Alma de Samaná sets itself apart from all other integrated resort destinations with its approach to engagement and interaction with the local community, embracing the heritage and natural beauty of the land and creating a place where people are brought together to celebrate collective values.

Our development team consists of the world-renowned master planning team, Daedalus Design London, and European Golf Design, the masterminds behind some of the most notable courses played on the European Golf Tour. 

Finding and purchasing an international property may seem like a daunting task, but when you have the right team working for you, the process becomes an exciting journey that brings to life the passion for discovery that is key to our shared human experience.
