Casa De Campo is a sprawling 7,000-acre 5-star resort in La Romana, situated on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic. Less a resort and more like a gigantic holiday playground, Casa De Campo offers championship Golf Courses, including the top-rated Teeth of the Dog course. On the edge of the resort there's a full-scale replica of a 16th century Mediterranean medieval village, Altos De Chavón. Along the cobbled streets there are cafes and galleries where you can unwind and travel back to a time when the Caribbean adventure was just as sunny and beautiful.
To get the blood pumping after your afternoon of relaxing Caribbean time-travel, there are shooting facilities and equestrian centers where you can trot around the countryside at your own pace. After riding, there are spas and yoga centers to relax those muscles and, as the evening begins to cool, a huge number of bars and restaurants to visit for your fix of Caribbean food and cocktails. Casa De Campo’s signature restaurant The Beach Club offers Dominican treats right on the beachfront, so you never have to be too far from the sea air and those magnificent views.
Just off the coast, among the coral reefs of Catalina Island, there’s the wrecked pirate ship of William Kidd, which gives you an exciting story to tell the kids. Relax on Minitas Beach, idyllically Caribbean, and dream of pirates. In the hills, Altos De Chavón looks down on a mesmerising panorama of the Chavón river. Once you’ve seen it from on high, you’ll want to get down there and explore.
