Casa de Campo
Casa de Campo has long been one of the most alluring resorts in the Caribbean. Opened as a rural seaside resort in 1971, it was developed by the former Gulf + Western company and can be found on its own beach in the La Romana area of the Dominican Republic. Quite simply, Casa de Campo offers everything that a great luxury resort should. This includes a privileged location, an impressive array of comfortable accommodations, and an amazing collection of facilities. Since its inception, other glorious resorts have opened in the Dominican Republic, but few can even come close to matching the Casa de Campo experience.
Rooms & Villas
The accommodations at the Casa de Campo Resort range from hotel rooms to homes, so prospective guests should have little trouble finding something that suits their preference. Regardless of the guest unit in question, it will feature plenty of contemporary comforts and a healthy array of five-star conveniences. Families and other small groups can arrange to have connecting rooms should they wish to go the hotel route, and suites are also available. Even more spacious are the available homes, or villas, which also offer added levels of privacy. Many of the villas even come with their own swimming pools, not to mention inviting lounge areas and stunning gardens. When booking their accommodations, guests of the Casa de Campo Resort are encouraged to keep an eye out for special deals. Often times, honeymoon packages are offered, for example. In addition to accommodations, these romantic packages can include such things as a private breakfast for two and a couples massage. As a side note, Casa de Campo has numerous residential properties for those who are interested in ownership.
Casa de Campo Golf Courses
The Casa de Campo golf courses are all that a golfing enthusiast could ask for. Extremely well-manicured, they offer stunning views of the ocean and the area’s scenic cliffs, hills, and valleys. If this isn’t enough to convince you to choose Casa de Campo for your next great golf vacation, then maybe the name of the designer who created the amazing courses will. All five came from the mind of Pete Dye – a man who is widely considered to be the world’s most renowned golf course architect. Aiding Pete Dye in his designs was his LPGA Hall of Famer wife, Alice Dye. The most famous Casa de Campo course is known as the Teeth of the Dog course. It consistently ranks as the number one golf course in the Caribbean, and Pete Dye himself stated that "The opportunity to carve out Teeth of the Dog was a once-in-a-lifetime experience." Complementing the Teeth of the Dog course are two other immaculate resort courses and a pair of sumptuous private courses. The other two resort courses are known as Dye Fore and The Links. Caddies are required when playing the Teeth of the Dog and are optional on the other two resort courses. The Casa de Campo offers stay and play golf packages, not to mention a renowned golf school for those who want to get some help with their game.
Spa & Other Facilities
Anyone who wishes to be pampered during their Dominican Republic vacation is sure to find bliss at the Casa de Campo Resort. Indulgence is the name of the game at the resort’s lavish spa, and helping guests to achieve relaxation and rejuvenation are a mix of ancient remedies and modern techniques. Both indoor and outdoor services can be arranged, and there are also opportunities for villa guests to enjoy private in-villa sessions. Only serving to complement the spa at Casa de Campo are a number of other wonderful facilities that guests can take advantage of. Among these additional facilities are numerous restaurants, bars, and lounges. Other facility highlights at Casa de Campo include a tennis center, an equestrian center, polo grounds, a full-service marina, and plenty of shops. Between all the facilities and activity options, Casa de Campo guests should have little trouble keeping busy. There are even opportunities to arrange such water sport activities as kayaking, snorkeling, and diving. Families with young children should also know that the resort offers a comprehensive list of activities for kids.
Altos de Chavon
No stay at the Casa de Campo Resort would be complete without an Altos de Chavon visit. Easily one of the top tourist attractions in the Dominican Republic, this 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village can be found just east of Casa de Campo and resembles something that you might expect to encounter in such European countries as Spain, France, and Italy. Cobblestone streets, an amphitheater that has played host to big name musicians, and a lovely little church are just some of the things that add to the charm of Altos de Chavon. The village also features fine restaurants, boutiques, museums, and a renowned school of design that is associated with the Parson’s School of Design in New York City.
