Luxe: Tucked on the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic, Casa de Campo began as a retreat for local sugar mill workers and quickly became a luxury vacation hotspot with the addition of golf, polo, and tennis courts in the 70’s. In the 1980’s, luxury designer Oscar de la Renta stepped in and oversaw a huge design makeover which drew rapid attention from elite travelers. Nowadays, Casa de Campo serves as a luxury oasis where guests can kick back on the beautiful beaches, sip on a cocktail and experience the postcard-worthy landscape along the Chavon River.
Casa de Campo offers 183 elite rooms and suites complete with gorgeous mahogany accents, Coralina stone finishing, and local art. Superior Casita Deluxe rooms are dressed in bright white, crisp décor and include a touring cart for exploring the resort. The Elite suites are the perfect place to have a relaxing dinner in the spacious dining area and the black marble vanity in the bathroom will transport you to your own private spa. The property’s Oceanfront villas take the cake offering living room and dining room accommodations as well as a private patio with pool and gardens. These rooms are a paradise all on their own, and beg you stay and lounge in the comfort of your dreamy linens.
WHAT TO PACK:
The Mintas Beach Club & Restaurant serves both outstanding Caribbean and Latin style food as well as amazing views. Of course, you can’t forget to grab a signature piña colada at Coco Mar beach bar located right off of Mintas Beach, because is a beach vacation ever complete without a frozen drink?
When you finally pull yourself away from the beach, La Caña Bar & Restaurant is a nighttime hotspot with live music, hand-rolled cigars, and a modern Mediterranean cuisine that combines bright, fresh favors starring local seafood and mouthwatering meats.
Worth Traveling For
The Altos de Chavon region is a must-see while staying at Casa de Campo.

Altos de Chavon is positioned on the unforgettable Dominican countryside and has become a cultural hub where visitors can wander down charming cobblestone streets, shop for one-of-a-kind finds at local boutiques and enjoy art made by students of the acclaimed Altos de Chavon School of Design.
