Named after Captain Joseph Bannister, this exclusive residential development overlooking Samana Bay would convince any sailor to give up his sea legs.

Cafe del Mar from Ibiza - now in the Dominican Republic, hang by the infinity pool and enjoy the music.
Stroll through the property of The Bannister after you’ve checked in and get a feel for the place. The spectacular sea views might inspire you to make the most of its full-service marina, or the sight of the hills behind you. The Bannister has plenty of fantastic leisure and activity options. Spend some time in the spa and gym, or head to the pools, and tennis courts.

No wonder Captain Joseph Bannister - British sailor turned privateer and namesake to The Bannister - worked so hard to protect "Cayo Bannister" (now "Cayo Levantado”) in 1686. The hotel that now bears his name is located in a setting that is certainly worth fighting for.

Some of the finest accommodations in Samana can be found at The Bannister. Choose between nine distinct room types; all are finely decorated and sumptuously appointed so that event the most discerning tastes are sure to be satisfied.

A place where adults are guaranteed to have a good time, The Bannister provides the best of everything by the sea.
