On the southern coast of the Dominican Republic, outside the resort town of La Romana, Inspirato has four standalone homes in the sprawling and upscale Casa de Campo Resort and Villas community. Villa Pasarela, Casa Encantada, Villa los Altos, and Villa Lozano feature private swimming pools and abundant outdoor living space. Each also comes with a dedicated housekeeper and butler who will help prepare daily breakfast and snacks.
Guests staying at these homes will have full access to the amenities of Casa de Campo Resort and Villas, including multiple resort pools, three Pete Dye-designed golf courses, elegant restaurants, spa, and more.
To describe this master-planned resort on the Dominican Republic's southeastern coast as a sprawling estate would be an understatement. More than 7,000 acres make up the grounds that are known as the resort today, all of it former sugar mill property. The Ponderosa-style resort was built in 1975 and is one of the most impressive and well-established resort communities in the Caribbean, containing world-renowned golf architect Pete Dye's Teeth of the Dog course and limitless family-friendly amenities. It's also an exquisite home base to more than 1,700 residences, beach clubs, 70 restaurants, shops and bars. For a coastal getaway with generous amenities and activities, Inspirato Members have met their match.
Your resort concierge can arrange a city tour of Santo Domingo to see historical landmarks or, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, to La Flor Dominicana Factory for an experience in traditional cigar-making.
The Spa at Casa de Campo Resort and Villas offers steam and sauna rooms, Ayurvedic treatments, reflexology, facials and even private, customized consultations with an on-site naturopathic doctor.
Try a morning yoga session from the beautiful Minitas Beach. All ages and levels of ability are welcome. There's also a beach cabana for al fresco massages and a physical therapy center. Talk to your Spa Concierge for information.
Teeth of the Dog is a Pete Dye-designed 18-hole course. As a guest of Casa de Campo, you will have access to this course as well as The Links, a more classic course, and the 27-hole Dye Fore.
Wander back in history. These caves are covered in ancient Taino cave paintings and this landmark was awarded the 2003 Gold prize in the International Landscape Architecture Biennial Award. A guided tour lasts about one hour.
Near your accommodations, the Caribbean waters off of the private Minitas Beach are serene and ideal for SCUBA and snorkeling during your stay. If you prefer dry land, admire the cerulean sea from the comfort of a lounge chair.
Connecting the two most popular towns on the island, La Romana and Punta Cana, the Autopista Del Coral opened in August of 2012, lessening the driving time between destinations from two hours to an easy 45 minutes on top-quality highway.
First founded as an oil town in 1897, La Romana changed identities in the early 1900s when a large sugar mill was built. Casa de Campo was constructed around 7,000 acres of the former sugar plantation in 1975.
The fashion icon hails from the Dominican Republic and when Casa de Campo asked for his design talents to create a beautiful interior, de la Renta honored the property by incorporating his talent into the resort's interior.
Near the resort, the most preferable shopping options lie along the streets of La Romana, Bayahibe and Dominicus. For a token to take home, you're likely to encounter a variety of handmade jewelry, candles, clothing, arts and crafts.
Your vacation to La Romana will feature mild, warm weather. On average, the temperatures stay consistent with highs in the upper 80s. January is the "coldest" month, dipping only to the lower 70s. In a year's time, temperatures typically range from 69 to 91 degrees.
