Beau Monde Traveler: Exploring Casa de Campo’s Resort
Exploring Casa de Campo — The Dominican Republic Playground
Did you know that the top visited country in the Caribbean is the Dominican Republic? Developments such as Casa de Campo contributed to the influx of travelers.
Casa de Campo was not always what it appears as today. The now luxury resort was once the world’s largest sugar mill. This getaway place now houses Teeth of the Dog, which is considered one of the best multilevel golf courses in the Caribbean. In addition to golf, Casa de Campo also offers horse riding services, polo pitches, clay pigeon shooting, tennis courts, and water sports on the sea and river. There’s also an option to arrive at the resort on a private plane or helicopter. If you’re a cigar aficionado, there’s also a cigar factory on the grounds as well. For relaxation, you can find the fitness center, spa, pools, and bars.
On the far end of the resort, you can find Altos de Chavon — a mock 16th century Spanish village. It was initially built as a film set, but it was never put to use. Now the village is the stomping grounds for eateries, workshops, a museum, a night club. If you’re looking for live music, there’s also a Roman-style amphitheater not too far away from Altos de Chavon. Fun fact, Frank Sinatra was the first debut performer at the amphitheater 1972. Others have followed suit — such as Elton John, Andrea Bocelli, Gloria Estefan, Julio Iglesias, Placido Domingo, and more.
Casa de Campo lives on Minitas Beach, where you can find golden sands and crystal water. It includes a beach club with two pools, one for families and one for adults. You can wine and dine at the restaurant for lunch and dinner or stay by the pool and a food cart will come to your service.
On the grounds of the luxury resort, Casa de Campo covers 7,000 acres with nearly 2,000 villas ranging from 3 to 11 bedrooms. It also houses 247 hotel rooms in a tropical garden scenery. Guests can opt into the all-inclusive package which covers food, drinks, golf buggy access, horse-riding, tennis, water sports (non-motorized), and two nightclub tickets.
Casa de Campo is a gem of its own in the Dominican Republic. From golfing and watersports to relaxing by the pool or beach, this resort has something for everyone. For the full article, visit https://beaumondetraveler.com/content/casa-de-campo-dominican-republic-luxury-caribbean-resort-review/.
