Roco Ki is another of the more popular upscale developments in the area. With record-breaking sales at it's launch, this project is destined to be one of the most exclusive communities in the Caribbean. With its first stage still under developoment, Roco Ki is a hotspot for investors seeking high potential rates of return.
Set along the dramatic headlands and pearl white beaches of the Dominican Republic’s fabled eastern shore is a world that offers rich culture, awe-inspiring scenery and a wealth of adventure. This is the place that will redefine luxury living for a new generation.
Here is a world where the past is honored; the present is celebrated; the future is boldly envisioned.
Roco Ki means "honoring the land" in the language of the Taino Indians, the original inhabitants of the Island. As the new stewards of this very special place, we are paying homage to its legacy by adapting historical Taino themes and Spanish influences to create an architecture and atmosphere unique to the Caribbean.
Roco Ki is a destination where culture, ecology, history and art are integrated in an invigorating and entertaining fashion. Our vision is to create a place of beauty and serenity for those that visit and those who will make Roco Ki their home.
Experience the magic of Roco Ki.
Honoring the Past
For two millennia the Taino Indians celebrated the rejuvenating powers of the stunning cliffs and headlands that crown Roco Ki.
It is in honoring this rich history that Roco Ki parts company with the all too familiar trappings of other Caribbean destinations. By marrying the island's indigenous architectural themes and materials with state-of-the-art conveniences, we've captured the noble elegance of the Dominican Republic.
A culturally and historically inspired community, Roco Ki is a place at peace with its natural setting. Miles of perfect beach and diverse topography set the stage for unique residential communities. But there is more, much more. There is incredible golf. Four courses are planned; on the first, Nick Faldo takes you from the headlands poised just above the crashing surf through centuries-old mangrove lined fairways.
Kayak as the Taino Indians did, sport-fish for giant blue marlin in the famous Mona Passage. Watch the sun set from that most delightful of Taino inventions - the hammock.
Imagine yourself in this new tropical luxury destination.

|Golf Newly Imagined |
Golf at Roco Ki is an unforgettable experience not only for the game, but as a way to explore this magnificent land. The first tee presents a panorama of the course, the headlands, the ocean and the mountains beyond. On the 3rd hole, a par three, you descend into a tropical sanctuary where centuries-old mangroves line the fairways. As you ascend to the 15th hole, you return to the sea. For the avid golfer, the incredible 17th, named El Caiman, offers obvious inferences to Pebble Beach. The only difference is that the 17th, crafted by Nick Faldo, is followed by an equally spectacular 18th hole. Called Los Dos Rezos, the Two Prayers, one plays over not one but two ocean inlets, making 17th and 18th two of the most dramatic golf holes in the Caribbean.Amenities
Think of Roco Ki's private beach club as your soothing refuge and revitalizing haven. A courteous staff will treat you with a singular commitment to personal service. Savor a cocktail poolside or stroll out to a water's-edge cabana. You may chose to meander to the other side of the headlands and the Aquatic Sports Center, where in a tranquil bay, kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, diving and departures for sport fishing await.
The vision is as grand as the community already taking shape on the dramatic headlands of Macao.
