i want to take that buddha home. {sivory punta cana boutique hotel, dominican republic}

November 3, 2011

Sivory Punta Cana is a small luxury boutique hotel on the golden shores of Uvero Alto in Dominican Republic. The place is magical, a paradise oasis of relaxation and privacy, reconnecting the visitors to the source of well-being and harmony.

I recently photographed an Intimate Portraits session there with Marina & Ruslan; then was lucky enough to get a private tour of the property and even have lunch with the quietly remarkable man behind the scenes, Jose.

I’m in love with the place. Take a look.

Stunning grounds, infinity pool.

Here’s Jose and Sivery’s amazing Uvero Alto beach. The sand is not as white and fine as on other beaches, but I love its colour and texture.

Inside a few of the suites… There’s a beautiful scent of lavender in all rooms, it’s so fresh and dreamy. 

And my personal favourite… the impeccably designed private tropical shower. Ah, imagine the intimate portraits / couples boudoir in this setting!

The Sivory Spa … and another unique shower a.k.a. the home of a cute little gecko (he lives in the bamboo ‘branch’). And the buddha statue – I want it in my living room!!
