Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts partners with Cisneros Real Estate to construct a new Four Seasons property in the Dominican Republic. The Four Seasons Resort and Residences Dominican Republic at Tropicalia is slated to open in 2026.
Setting a new standard of sustainable elegance, the property will sit on a 64-acre site along the beachfront of Playa Esmeralda. The new hotel plans to integrate the natural beauties of the region, including a working coconut plantation, mangroves, an organic farm, lagoons and more.
Featuring 95 guestrooms and suites, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Dominican Republic at Tropicalia will also include 25 private residences of three- and four-bedroom units, each situated steps from the beach.
The low-impact property draws inspiration from the island’s native materials and colonial-era towns, while offering a variety of outdoor activities and dining venues. Guests can embark on a day of tennis, paddleball and pickleball before heading to the resort’s specialty restaurant, beachside grill, poolside bar, ceviche bar, juice bar, coffee shop or rum bar. Playa Esmeralda sits on the northern coast of the island, directly north of Santo Domingo.
More than 22 million visitors pour into Bangkok each year, adding to the roughly 11 million residents of the Thai capital famous for its bustling streets. Packed with food carts, markets and cultural spectacles, life in Bangkok is unusually defined by its vibrant street scene, both day and night. That means you don’t necessarily need a solid plan when heading out on any given evening.

As first-time restaurateurs, but with plenty of hospitality-related experience, Ria and Kevol (Kev) Graham were not entirely comfortable opening their first restaurant in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg, where several upscale restaurants and 5-star hotel dining is just a block away. And to make matters worse, they opened in July 2020, when New York City was in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to intimate settings, smaller staff-to-passenger ratios, and personalized food and beverage options, river cruises have the advantage of providing a deeper dive into a region’s culture, food and history. The Rhine, Rhône and Danube in Europe and the Mississippi River and St. Lawrence in North America have much to offer travelers with their itineraries, tying together beloved cities and lesser-known destinations along their routes.
