Diana Lynch becomes the first Black woman CEO to develop an international resort in the Dominican Republic


Diana Lynch


Brooklyn native, Diana Lynch, is developing Samaná Bay Golf Resort & Residences an international resort in the Dominican Republic.

Over the past two decades the founder and owner of Atlanta-based development company, Lynch Land Holdings, LLC has been developing and managing real estate within the United States.

Now, Lynch is leading the way in constructing the first black-owned international golf resort at the Dominican resort.

The resort will feature world-class amenities and experiences to include a signature golf course, amphitheater and a professional sports training, rehabilitation, and medical campus that plans to hold over 3,000 acres of prime commercial and residential property with over 1,400 villas, eco-villages and condominiums overlooking the Samaná Bay and Atlantic Ocean. 

The nice scenery in the Dominican Republic holds beautiful beaches as well as a stable economy with the right to own land without citizenship, favorable short-term rental income potential and tax incentives, dual-citizenship opportunities, and leading GDP. Most notably, this beautiful landscape holds historic significance as it was originally inhabited by freed American slaves who settled in the region following their emancipation in the 1800s.

The Samaná Bay development has assembled a powerhouse collective with demonstrated expertise in the areas of commercial and resort real estate development worldwide as well as the world-renowned Daedalus Design London that have well over 40 resort hotel, golf, residential and leisure developments across three continents, including most notably Laucala Island, Figi.

Diana Lynch and the Samaná team have plans to unveil their project in March 2023, with unique exclusive offerings coming in December 2022. 

They are welcoming golf lovers, professional athletes and entertainers, future landowners, and corporate alliances to participate in this monumental milestone in Black History.
