CONCEPT: When discovering this abandoned yet verdant plantation we realized how luxury is found in Nature Itself; we decided to disrupt as little as possible as we worked to create a perfect balance between unspoiled nature and creature comforts.

LOCATION: On top of a mountain, with the vast ocean in clear view. On a panoramic route, 20 minutes from Puerto Plata and 45 minutes from Santiago.

The space
LODGING: Our thatch-roofed palapas and casitas were hand hewn by local artisans using centuries-old techniques. Our elevation provides a perfect climate for comfort, constant fresh breezes and heavenly views.

ACTIVITIES: Explore nature, bird watching, cascading, romantic strolls, guided treks. Find ancient trails, sleepy villages, spectacular ridges, endemic birds, tropical flora and fauna. Along the Panoramic Route, discover organic fruit stands, local cheeses and yogurt, coffee village, amber mines. Meanwhile, the sand and the sea is in full view and just 20 minutes away.

MEALS: We scouted for local people with the highest passion for cooking and worked with them and their traditions to create a culinary adventure that is both local and world-class - and adaptive to every dietary preference. More and more people are coming from the surrounding region just to enjoy our food and amazing views. As guests you can get all your meals for just $25 per day. Or you can order as you go. There is also a fridge to keep your drinks and snacks cool.
