Dominican Republic Triumphs in 2011 Luxury Rankings

The Dominican Republic is fast becoming one of the most luxurious holiday destinations in the Caribbean with several accolades that honour the island nation’s hotels and resorts, golf courses and breathtaking natural scenery.

The list of awards has led to an increase in the number of travellers taking Dominican Republic holidays in recent years and the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism has shared the annual list of honours in 2011 that makes the island such a dream destination.
