About this Project
Tropicalia is a luxury resort development along the southern coast of Samaná Bay, Dominican Republic, with an emphasis on harmony with nature. Tropicalia will be a world-renowned emblem of sustainable luxury tourism, anchored by an Isay Weinfeld-designed Four Seasons hotel and Tom Doak 18-hole golf course with branded residences throughout. Given the site’s proximity to the coast and low lying topography, Sherwood Design Engineers developed an innovative water management site design that will reduce the threat of inland flooding, sea level rise, and 100-year storm wave runup. Sherwood prepared construction documents for the project including grading, drainage, circulation, and utility plans.
