The Dominican Republic’s Casa de Campo is a sprawling resort that boasts a pristine, private beachfront location coupled with copious on-site activities and dining experiences. The resort's tranquility and privacy draws A-list guests such as Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
Guests can take advantage of all this action-packed property has to offer with private golf carts to traverse the whopping 7,000 acres. This is a major destination for golfers — the resort's Teeth of the Dog course is one of Golf Digest's top 100 courses in the world, and the three on-site courses are designed by PGA champion Pete Dye. The resort's Minitas Beach is "immaculate" (Oyster.com) with soft white sands and a man-made reef to keep the surf calm and safe; there are also three pools on the resort grounds.
Foodies can take their pick from the six on-site restaurants, including Pubbelly Sushi with an eclectic mix of Asian-inspired dishes, fresh ceviche at Epicure and pizzas cooked in a wood-burning oven at Massa. All-inclusive stays include breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks at La Caña, La Piazzetta, Restaurante Lago, Bar Hoyo 19, Chilango, the two food trucks and the pool bar, plus drinks, unlimited horseback riding and more.
The property is also home to the on-site wonder Altos de Chavón, a full-size replica of a 16th-century Mediterranean village, complete with a 5,000-seat Grecian-style amphitheater. Guests can stroll through the cobblestone streets and visit quaint shops, art galleries and restaurants.
After a long day of activities, guests can retreat to spacious rooms, outfitted with rich mahogany furniture and private terraces. All rooms and suites have their own private personal golf cart to help travel throughout the sprawling property. Guests also receive free Wi-Fi, flat-panel TVs, in-room minibar and coffee maker, full fitness center access, walk-in closets and bathrooms with separate tubs and showers.
