Even before its large-scale renovation last year, Cayo Levantado has long been at the forefront of high-end luxury in the Dominican Republic. This year, the upscale resort has taken its unique hospitality concept one step further by combining cutting-edge design with authentic Dominican experiences.

Measuring just three square kilometers in size, Cayo Levantado, which shares the same name as the resort, is a picturesque island containing some of the cleanest and finest white-sand beaches in the Dominican Republic.

The 5-star resort recently underwent a massive renovation that completely revolutionized the property’s design and service concept. As travelers increasingly seek out unique cultural experiences on their next holiday, Grupo Piñero, the hospitality chain that operates the high-end resort, wanted to capitalize on evolving travel trends.
