The Samaná Peninsula, green, natural and exuberant, has its purest version in Las Galeras. It is not a place for everyone, only for those who really appreciate to descover seven virgin, pristine beaches and where the contrast of the blue of the sea and the green of the mountains look like a magical mix of colours.

With 35% of its territory declared as protected areas, Las Galeras still preserves the essence of its biodiversity and its ecosystems. It offers a large number of opportunities for those seeking comfort or adventure or the enjoyment of both in a peaceful environment, where the sound of nature marks the rhythm of life.


With a population of around 10,000 inhabitants in 132 square kilometers, Las Galeras allows the enjoyment of almost private spaces. Its inhabitants, who love this land, are mostly farmers and fishermen, when they are not engaged in activities related to tourism.

Las Galeras is an internationally certified destination for having a sustainable development approach based on the conservation of its biodiversity.

Caring for Las Galeras is a commitment assumed by all the residents of this little piece of peninsula, who intend to provide an opportunity for healthy, safe and magic-filled vacations, only for people looking for a connection with the true-essence of this land.


Chalet Tropical, located in the heart of Las Galeras, is a place that you have to live it, to understand it! Individual cabins decorated with recycled woods, small private pools in natural stones with waterfalls illuminated at night, within its lush gardens, flowers and aromas … a place for everyone: couples, friends, families and groups, can count on a personalized service that seeks to exceed the expectations of its visitors.

Chalet Tropical got a certification as a hotel that respects biodiversity and our gardens are a sample of the local flora and local fauna. We strive to comply with the international criteria that make of Chalet Tropical a sustainable accommodation, for what we have received various awards and recognitions.

In these times of Covid-19, we are complying with the prevention protocols almost “naturally”: all the Chalets are like small private oases, all well distanced, which comply by themselves with the healthy rules, ideal for a happy vacation!

Our History

Chalet Tropical opened its doors in 2006 with the initial objective of standing out among the other establishments in the area. The idea was to create something different, with accommodations standing out for comfort, even if in full contact with the local nature!


An unique experience!

The chalets, with their original architecture, are perfectly integrated into the environment, being built with natural materials such as palm leaves, recicled wood and stone.
Colors and decorations are mixed with the services of the houses, to create our own kind of “rustic-elegant” style, to relax and get excited in this beautiful corner of tropical paradise.
The charm of the lush tropical gardens, the ventilated terraces and the refreshing jacuzzi-style stone pools will seduce you.
Our friendly and attentive staff will make sure all of your needs are met.

Let us show you a true Dominican Paradise!

The pumping heart of Chalet Tropical energy! Short in stature but big in spirit, with Italian nationality and Dominican soul, Sarah is a lover of nature and uses her creativity to create the rustic, elegant, colored and natural style that is fully experienced at Chalet Tropical!
Sarah lives with the same joy as the Dominican, who is recognized for facing everyday life with an eternal smile. Her positivity, energy, courage and creativity make CHALET TROPICAL an icon of sustainability and respect for the biodiversity of Las Galeras.

Thanks also to the collaboration of her Dominican husband William Batista (Eco Mueble Las Galeras) she was recently able to enlarge the project and complete the beautification of Chalet Tropical with the renovation of the lush gardens, with the creation of natural stone pools with waterfalls and with the functional installation of air-conditioners in all rooms…. all welcome details, most of all to make happy our Dominican and American guests!
