If you owned your own luxury villa in the Dominican Republic, you’d want it to look like Casa Colonial Beach and Spa. From the outside, this upscale property in Puerto Plata looks a lot like the vacation home of someone whose jetsetter life affords them multiple homes around the world. The villa-style building sits oceanfront behind ornate wrought iron gates and detailed metal porticos over arched doorways.
Expect more of the same contemporary tropical atmosphere in the suites and common areas. You might choose to extend your stay after you see the four poster beds with Frette linens and soaking tubs in the bathrooms. Picture yourself starting each day with a cup of coffee on the private balcony and catching up on news with free the Wi-Fi.
Once you emerge from the cocoon of comfort, take a dip in the rooftop infinity pool with sweeping ocean views or meander the flagstone paths flanked by mangroves, ferns and other leafy greens. Drier options to chill out include a row of canopied daybeds in a shallow pool and shaded Adirondack chairs to relax and watch the ebb and flow of the tides.
Or forgo movement altogether for a few hours and indulge in a spa treatment at one of the outdoor spa gazebos. Traditional therapies incorporate local amber and royal jelly from local honeybees and the entire spa was designed using principles of feng shui.
