Dominican Sands

As a guest of Dominican Sands, your Lifestyle Holidays vacations include pampering amenities and services, top notch choice of restaurants and al fresco buffet dining options, unlimited beverages found at our bevy of bars located on property, and don’t forget the sun, sand and sea.

As an ocean front resort, you will have access to sandy white beaches, ocean waves, beach lounging areas to soak up the rays, as well as live entertainment shows, beach-party extravaganzas, exciting casino nightlife, and so much more. Add in world-class golf, spa treatments, water sports, and endless island adventures and this is the lifestyle you deserve.

Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort is open to all guests, however, the best of the resort is only available to members of the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club which is a tiered all-inclusive membership only club.  General guests, who are not members, have access to the basic beach, pool and dining options in the resort but are restricted from the VIP and other member only areas.

Dominican Sands belongs to the exclusive Chairman’s Circle Club, the highest recognizable affiliation within the Lifestyle Holidays Resort family, and as such, can offer our guests gold or white band access and the best available rates.

Beaches & Pools

There are essentially four levels of membership offered through the resort and it’s partner RCI.   These memberships allow varying levels of access to the resort’s beaches, pools and dining establishments.

  1. RCI Members are recognized as VIP members, have access to basic and VIP areas of the resort and receive blue bands to identify them during their stay.
  2. Gold or Supreme members have access to basic, VIP and “gold only” areas of the resort, receive preferential reservations at VIP dining establishments and are identified with gold bands.
  3. Shareholders have access to basic, VIP, “gold only” and “Shareholder only” areas of the resort, receive preferential reservations at VIP dining establishments and are identified with black bands.
  4. Chairman’s Circle Affiliates is the highest membership level offered and have access to all resort areas and dining establishments including the exclusive Chairman’s Circle only beaches, pools and dining establishments. Chairman’s Circle members receive preferred dining reservations over all other members.
Friendly and attentive staff are here to meet your every need – want your chair moved? Just ask – need a fresh drink? Your beach butler will be close by – dry towels? No problem!

Your Hosts

Clark and Kendra Obrist count the Dominican Republic and Lifestyle Resorts as one of their favorite places in the world. We love it here – and want to share our second home with you, your family and your friends.

We are Lifetime Supreme Members and have recently upgraded to include Chairman Circle Affiliation – this means that we can offer you the absolute highest level of accomodation, amenities and service available to resort guests. The only way you can have a more luxurious experience is to become members yourself. If you are interested in a private vacation tour with us to learn more, please let us know.

When we are not in the Dominican, we spend our time in South Florida – so we are always close by. Our daughter, Morgan Burno was married at the resort in May of 2016 and is heading up our exclusive Wedding service.
