Villa Serena
Las Galeras

Considered by many residents and guests alike to be one of the most charming and romantic hotels on the island’s entire North Coast, Villa Serena is located on 8,000sqm (2 acres) of picturesque, oceanfront property fronting Las Galeras Bay. Even the hotel’s name, Serena, lends itself to the tranquility and natural beauty for which this part of the Samana Peninsula is noted.
With 21 spacious and comfortable rooms, each with air conditioning or ceiling fans, the hotel is large enough to afford the amenities that a much larger, full-service facility allows and yet is small enough to retain that high degree of personalized service that is only found in the best accommodations. Also contributing to the allure of Villa Serena, each room is tastefully decorated in a different motif with a meticulous attention to detail.
The rooms are generously furnished and differing sleeping accommodations are available. They include a single king size or two double queen size beds. Bathrooms feature a bathtub and shower with hot and cold water. Cleanliness, water supply and electrical service are impeccable.
All rooms feature a sea view and have a private terrace to while away the peaceful hours in comfortable rocking chairs or chaise lounges. Double occupancy rates are from $100 to $140 USD, low to high season, and a meal plan is available.
Swim at the little beach in front of the hotel or lounge around the pool. Stroll around the hotel grounds and experience a sense of peace and tranquility as you hear the doves singing in the palm trees and the gentle rhythm of the waves lapping at the shore. Enjoy the antics of the pelicans diving for their dinner in the clear, azure waters of the protected bay.
Dine in Villa Serena’s restaurant where inventive Caribbean cuisine is the order of the day. With specialties such as Samana Bay shrimp in papaya sauce, chicken in ginger sauce, lobster in caramel and lamb with honey, your dining pleasure is most assured. And for dessert, luxuriate in rich chocolate cake with lemon grass dressing. Entrees are priced from $5 with full meals priced from $20 USD.
In addition to a spacious lobby with reading and game areas, the hotel offers free bicycles and kayaks for local exploration of land and sea. For daily activities, the hotel organizes whale-watching, boating and fishing trips, horseback riding, visits to local cockfights and excursions to different points of interest throughout the Samana Peninsula. Also, snorkeling gear may be rented for exploring the bay’s many reefs.
Stay as busy or as quiet as you want at Villa Serena, truly one of the gems of the Caribbean. Let the friendly and helpful staff of this comfortable hotel assist in your vacation enjoyment. Please contact the hotel for further information or assistance in planning your stay in Samana’s tropical paradise.
