The Balcones del Atlantico, a RockResorts luxury resort, opened in September of 2010 on the Dominican Republic’s Samana Peninsula. It’s the first luxury resort in the area. This villa-suite resort is situated on the shining sands of almost a mile of almost undiscovered beaches, named Playa Las Terrenas after the small nearby fishing village of the same name. You can, as the resort’s website says “walk all day and your feet will never leave the sand.” An up-scale restaurant, name “Porto,” has just opened at the resort and RockResort is offering a “StayFree, EatFree” package in celebration.
Featuring two pools with one swim-up bar, a beach bar, the new restaurant, watersports, tennis, horseback riding, and more, vacationers are never more than a few steps from the beach. Well-known Interior designer, Patricia Reid, is responsible for the chic tropical/ nautical decoration of the Balcones del Atlantico’s 86 two and three bedroom villa suites. The suites range in size from 1,900 to 4000 square feet. Reid’s philosophy is “Simple Luxury.” Her emphasis is on the bright colors of the tropics and natural lighting. Each suite is enhanced with local art, polished coral and granite tiles, and Balinese stone basins and teak counter tops in the bathrooms. Outdoor patios are furnished with wooden tables that seat between two and eight. Other amenities include flat-screen TVs, wireless Internet access, and state of the art kitchens featuring Viking appliances and cooking equipment by Cuisinart.
The restaurant, Porto, has the largest and most varied wine list in The Dominican Republic. The food, prepared by acclaimed Peruvian Chef Bruco Tosco offer a unique mix of Dominican and Peruvian flavors. Specialties include a daily catch that will vary with the seasons. Locally caught shrimp in three different and unique flavors is offered by the pound.
A highlight of Balcones del Atlantico is its commitment to the local environment and community with its strategy for sustainable tourism and development. Guests and staff may participate in environmental and community projects through the hotel’s partnerships with Reef Check- Dominican Republic and Pack for a Purpose.

A growing idea; the Four Seasons resort program!
As the holidays quickly fade into memories and spring edges itself around the corner, we at Luxe Travel Deals are already learning and developing new strategies for the upcoming year. We are working on new ways to help reinforce our commitment to Citizen Diplomat and spreading the word about how luxury travel can and should be used to improve the world one person and one destination at a time.Great ideas develop when people become involved. The Four Seasons, Costa Rica luxury resort at Papgayo Peninsula is a perfect example of Citizen Diplomat and how companies and people can come together to help one another, making great things happen.
50 Four Seasons employees resort guests helped build a fence around a local Costa Rican school to keep the cows out of the classroom. The Principal was grateful to them, but when the volunteers saw that the classrooms had no furniture they created a fund to buy desks and chairs for the children.
This small idea turned into the development of the Growing Together Program. Since 2001, the Four Seasons’ luxury resort owners have been the backbone of this truly great and rewarding program. The program benefits rural communities on the Papagayo Peninsula through customized volunteer experiences. Staff ambassadors match resort guests, groups and families with volunteer opportunities. Opportunities such as; planting a garden at a local school to show children how to eat healthier, cleaning up the environment or adopting a family programs.
The resort has been awarded many titles and accolades including; “The most socially responsible of all hotels and resorts,” on the Virtuoso best of the best list for 2010.
This resort offers all the benefits of luxury that you will find in any other resort; pools, activities, gourmet food and spas. The only real difference is, it offers something that not many other luxury resorts do; time set aside with your family to help those in need. The benefits that your family will receive out of participation in an activity such as this, is immeasurable. Hopefully, this rewarding experience will carry through when you return home and encourage you to get involved and make a difference in your own community.
Spring-break is just around the corner and is a great time to plan a family vacation. None will compare to this one. Your children will have fun while participating in a truly unique experience and perhaps they will have something important to write about when they return back to school.
If your not comfortable with volunteering, there are other ways to help. The resort has a backpack buddy program that is fun and easy to participate in. The object is to simply, purchase a backpack, fill it with school supplies and bring it to the resort with you. The backpack will then be given to a needy child with your name and information so the child will know where the backpack came from. A simple idea, that makes a huge impact in the life of a child.
Travel is not about the how, it is about the why and the Four Seasons resort is a great example of how you can make a simple family vacation turn into a lifelong memorable experience.
Luxe Travel Deals is proud to support causes like this one and we encourage you to send us your travel adventure or Citizen Diplomat stories to us. You can send them to email@example.com or read our blog daily at http://www.luxetraveldeals.com/luxury-travel-guide/.
