The website of Casa Bonita says: “Once the weekend retreat of the Schiffino family, Casa Bonita has been budged by nature to open its doors to outside guest and become an Exclusive Luxury Eco Hotel Lodge. Located in Barahona, Dominican Republic in the still unspoiled and secluded southwest region of the Dominican Republic and adjacent to the only biosphere reserve in the country, Casa Bonita offers a unique ecological experience atypical to most Dominican Republic Hotels.”
The hotel does indeed feature a fantastic setting, with a great view of the shoreline and the mountain behind. A beauty. We enjoyed truly magical sunrises and sunsets – and the caipiriñas which beautifully go with the sunsets. It also has a pretty decent restaurant but with a rather helpless service.
Yasuko and Lia did a lot of yoga. Even Luca and Nico joined in at times. Nico, however, preferred the jacuzzi where he literally spent hours soaking :-). I played tennis for the first time in years with Yasuko and Lia.
