New Condo Opportunities at a New Oceanfront Resort and Spa in the Dominican Republic
Real Estate opportunities are coming to a first-of-its-kind Oceanfront Resort and Spa on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, a vibrant location that draws ever increasing numbers of adventure travelers every year. The Amber Coast, another name for the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, comes from the rich deposits of semi-precious amber (the second most valuable deposit in the world) buried below its surface. It's also the inspiration for the resort's name, Amber Dune Resort and Spa, which is scheduled to open in 2012.
Construction has now begun at the Amber Dune Resort and Spa. It is the unique result of a multi-year effort sparked by a visionary developer, conceived by a renowned architect, led by an experienced management team and supported by several world-class implementing partners. As an owner you will benefit from their collective creativity and foresight. You will benefit from the growth in Adventure Tourism, the elegance and flexibility of the Amber Dune hotel-condominium design and, most importantly, the sparkling future of 13.5 beach-front acres on the North Coast near Cabarete and so close to the Puerto Plata airport.

Amber Dune is a luxurious 203-condominium resort designed by Lane Pettigrew LPA, one of the most successful architecture practices in the history of Caribbean resort development. The structure boasts simplicity and elegance that’s unmistakably contemporary. Replete with plants and multi-level pools, the resort offers a range of services and amenities whose standards match the elevated expectations created by the architecture.
Frequently visited activities are close to the water and easily accessed, including the beach club, the main pool, the restaurants and the spa. You will find waterfalls, streams and serene pockets of still water in tranquil spots throughout the winding paths, all of which beckon outward toward Cabarete. The adventure of Amber Dune includes strolling through it. Tropical ferns, palms and colorful orchids provide a lush backdrop for several intimate sitting areas along the way. Neighbors who've traveled here from other cities and countries can sit, talk and connect. You can exchange stories, share experiences and recommendations with like-minded owners and their guests.
