All of these resorts have something in common: Some are more off the grid than others, but all manage to spoil you. These are midpriced to high-priced options. If you are looking for a vacation of comfort but don’t want to be in the mix of mass tourism, these are for you.
The resort Paraíso Caño Hondo  (Sabana de la Mar ) is set in Parque Nacional Los Haitises , giving nighttime an incredibly serene feeling. Disconnect from busy life and appreciate natural beauty. This is one of the best independent resorts in the nation.
If Casa Bonita  (Bahoruco ) were in a beauty pageant, the rest of the contestants should be really nervous. Infinity pool, independently owned, amazing vistas, good food, elegant Caribbean-modern decor: It all means trouble for the rest of the small resorts. This hotel earns top kudos.
