Comprising of a Four Seasons Hotel and Residences in the first phase,

Offering world-class architecture and a mix of adventure and leisure activities, Tropicalia brings together travelers from around the world in a setting that is relaxed and simple, yet elegant.

no other.

Deeply connected to the land and its people, Tropicalia has been thoughtfully
and purposefully designed to protect the richness of the property’s diverse ecosystems, to contribute to and learn from the local community, and to build sustainable experiences and lasting memories that transcend generations.

The Cisneros family created Tropicalia as a legacy for future generations. It continues the philanthropic and cultural leadership that is a fundamental part of the Cisneros family’s DNA and the environmentally and socially responsible approach that guides all of their business ventures.

The embrace
of the sun.
Tropicalia is a place of breathtaking, untouched natural beauty.

Located in the Dominican Republic, a country of genuinely warm, welcoming people and one of the most internationally accessible destinations in the region. Tropicalia’s rich landscape boasts a uniquely diverse ecosystem of beaches, aquamarine waters, lush forests and mangroves, and much more to discover.
This magnificent property is a model for environmental conservation as well as sustainable high-end, low-density development.

Samaná Bay is a storied marine sanctuary where humpback whales and leatherback turtles return yearly to birth new generations. A short trip down the coastline, Los Haitises National Park is an explorer’s paradise. Encompassing 319 square miles, the park boasts limestone hill formations (mogotes), dense mangrove forests, ancient caverns with Taíno pictographs and petroglyphs and bountiful wildlife.

The shadow
of the planet.
The hands
the seeds.

Tropicalia’s guests and residents will also enjoy
a symbiotic relationship with land and sea,
working closely with the Cisneros family’s
sustainable organic farm, Estancia La Querencia.

The farm is certified in organic cacao production, providing local farmers with year-round food and training in organic agricultural practices as well as supplying produce to local markets and food suppliers.

Estancia La Querencia offers unique
farm-to-table experiences and an in-depth
look at local ingredients and gastronomy.

But don't stop.

Covering thousands of acres, Tropicalia’s richly varied terrain offers a stunning variety of leisure and recreation activities for all ages, including whale-watching, paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, swimming, and kitesurfing in the crystalline waters of Samaná Bay. Scuba divers can explore the bay’s vast, exotic marine ecosystem, as well as the shipwrecks of centuries-old Spanish galleons, while casual walks and hikes open a vast expanse of terrain – from ocean shores to the peaks of lush mountain forests.

These natural treasure of Samaná Bay and Los Haitises National Park stand ready for discovery by hikers, mountain bikers, boaters, paddle boarders and kayakers.

For more than a decade, Fundación Tropicalia has been working with the community of Miches supporting social, environmental and economic development in the region.

Founded by the Cisneros family in 2008, the non-profit organization’s programs are driven by and responsive to the needs of local residents, while strategically designed to maximize outcome and impact. Initiatives include public school improvement programs, continuing education for public school teachers and principals, training in sustainable and organic farming and supply chain optimization for local farmers, access to microfinancing and scholarship opportunities, gender equality programs, response to natural disasters, and more.
