Why Stay At Casa Bonita

This luxe eco-lodge neighboring Jaragua National Park on the southwestern shore of the Dominican Republic offers a welcome change from the usual mega-resorts.

The Scoop

Formerly the summer residence of a well-heeled family, Casa Bonita puts a wealth of activities in the vast bio reserve next door at guests' fingertips. Offerings range from horseback riding and bird watching excursions to mountain biking and hiking through hidden caves. Begin by taking in the stunning views from the mountaintop infinity pool and the open-air whirlpool. Vistas of the Caribbean from the rooms' private balconies are equally breathtaking, but not the only forte of the 12 guest quarters. Each one exudes simple elegance by way of native higüero wood accents and furnishings, original wall art and posh bathrooms featuring open showers. The nature theme continues at the resort's restaurant where local produce (partially from the property's own garden) and seafood from Barahuco are turned into modern adaptations of traditional Dominican cuisine. Recap the day on your outdoor deck over a post-prandial Chuli-Luchi cocktail consisting of rum, fresh coconut and sour lemon.

Insider Tips

Ready for a smoothie? At the resort's organic garden pick peaches, papayas, and oranges and ask the staff to blend them into a smoothie you can sip poolside.

Tanama Eco Spa is set on a riverbank surrounded by flourishing forests. Make sure to try the Healing Ritual Ciba-Azul, a soothing hot-and-cold-stone massage.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Las Americas International Airport in Santo Domingo (SDQ) which is approximately 140 miles away from the resort. Anticipate about 3 hours of travel time. Private transfers are available from the airport. Please contact hotel directly for information. A flight from Santo Domingo (SDQ) to Barahona can be arranged for under $200 per person roundtrip through the hotel.
