About the Hotel
Immerse yourself in a unique tropical haven with your stay at Casa Bonita. In beautiful Barahona, on the southern coast of the Dominican Republic, this fabulous family-owned lodge welcomes you experience the natural beauty of the Caribbean. Adjacent to the only ecological reserve in the country, Casa Bonita sits on a hilltop with stunning views of the surrounding forest, mountains and sea. Twelve idyllic cabana-style rooms are perfectly set against the scenic backdrop, and boast a modern yet tranquil atmosphere, and an illustrious infinity pool provides a perfect way to relax and soak in the sun.
Head down to Bahoruco Beach - about a 10-minute walk from the hotel - for a day of swimming and sunning on the bright sands, or hit the waves for an exciting day of windsurfing or kite boarding. Hike in the tropical forests of the Sierra de Bahoruco or tour Jaragua National Park near the Haitian border. See the lagoons, caves and petroglyphs of the renowned Bay of Eagles, and gaze out over Enriquillo Lake, where crocodiles, iguanas and flamingos thrive. Take to the open ocean on a luxury yacht cruise around the coast, a sailing trip into the sunset, or a deep sea fishing excursion sure to make the big catch. Dive at stunning underwater sites off the coast of nearby Pedernales, where some of the best reefs in the Caribbean can be found. Stop at the truly unique Magnetic Pole of Cabral, and be amazed in wonderment as gravity seems to distort itself in front of your very eyes. After a day in the mountains or at the beach, return to the hotel for a beautiful sunset dinner. Delight your palate with fresh fish and shellfish, caught that day, and prepared with local ingredients that soar with flavor. Sip a nightcap as the stars begin to shine over the sea, and drift off to sleep, lulled gently by the waves washing ashore just outside your room at Casa Bonita.
