The Land

The Land
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, coral reefs, mountains, sea, jungle, lake, rivers, and a working coconut plantation. This magnificent property is a model for environmental conservation as well as sustainable high-end, low-density development.
Tropicalia’s distinct architectural voice emphasizes the use of natural materials that harmonize with the pristine surroundings and convey a sense of authenticity. Rigorous development standards ensure the highest level of design and sustainable building practices. Sensitively integrated into the lush tropical landscape, the buildings offer seamless indoor/outdoor living that takes full advantage of the warm year-round climate. Our first hotel and residences, designed by Isay Weinfeld, will embody these principles and evoke a sense of natural luxury.

Sustainability is our business model. Our stakeholder approach to management balances financial, social and environmental priorities, guaranteeing our future for years to come. Four key commitments guide our decisions: We protect, restore and conserve the environment; we select partners and suppliers based on shared values; we incorporate rigorous design and development standards, and environmentally sound construction techniques; and we support community development and economic inclusion through our foundation, Fundación Tropicalia, which carries out education, environment, productivity and socio-cultural advocacy programs in Miches.
In 2010 Tropicalia joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and began aligning business strategy with the universal principles on human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption. Our commitment included reporting on progress in these areas through our annual sustainability report which was first issued in 2011. Our report informs stakeholders of our business practices, corporate philosophy and the impact of our foundation’s work in the local community.
