Interview with Balaji Palace Marketing Coordinator Lori Metze

Q) Can you explain what makes Balaji Palace a unique experience for guests?
A) The Palace is much more intimate than a resort. With less than 20 rooms in three estate buildings, staying here is more like staying in a villa with friends than sharing a hotel with strangers. We have a beautiful main house, a cliff house overlooking the private beach and the ocean and a newly renovated guest house across the meadow from the pool.

Q) Are there any must-try dishes or drinks at the property that guests should order?
A) We have a chef on-site who prepares both American-style food and dishes we love in the Dominican Republic. I would suggest trying any of our native dishes.

Q) What are the three things about your property that guests may not know?
A) 1- We have a charming private beach.
2- Guests can have their meals anywhere on-site they would like.
3- A peacock family roams the property for endless guest entertainment.

Q) Can you take me through what a guests stay would be like and what an average day might entail in terms of activities, etc?
A) Guests of Balaji Palace wake up at their leisure in one of our spacious rooms, then come down to the great room to let a staff member know they are ready for breakfast. A quick dip in the pool might follow while breakfast and coffee is set up for them in the thatched hut by the pool. Next, they might grab snorkeling gear and head to the private beach for some underwater exploration. After lunch on the veranda, it is time for a horseback riding adventure through local villages arranged by our staff. At night, guests might opt for a private moonlit dinner on the beach followed by drinks around the fire pit.

Q) Have you had any notable guests or celebrities visit that you can share?
A) Of course! However, privacy is highly valued here and we are not at liberty to share which celebrities love to call The Palace home for a week here and there.

Q) What elements about your property are truly luxurious?
A) We believe in little touches that add luxury to a visit. For example, our housekeeping staff likes to leave hand towel peacocks on the bed surrounded by rose petals, especially if our guests are honeymooning. The massive size of some of our suites is a luxury as is having a private beach at your disposal.

Q) What advice do you have for guests who are staying at your hotel?
A) Get out and see this incredible country. Time by the pool is wonderful, but do not leave without meeting people and experiencing a culture different from your own.

Q) What is the best time to travel to Balaji Palace?
A) Since we are in a tropical, but mild, climate, there is no bad time to visit.
