Casa de Campo’s new look

Casa de Campo is as good as new as of Tuesday, 22 December. The hotel has reopened following a major renovation of its rooms and suites, and a fully remodeled lobby. Also unveiled was La Cana Restaurant & Lounge by Il Circo, a fine dining restaurant with both indoor and al fresco dining, managed by the Maccioni family of Le Cirque in New York. This is the Maccioni family’s second venture at Casa de Campo, following the beautiful Beach Club by Le Cirque at the resort’s Minitas Beach. The fitness center has been refurbished and a new Montecristo Cigar Lounge has been added.

The new “elite” rooms feature a modern look, while maintaining the use of rich mahogany woods and Coralina stone. The rooms are equipped with 42 Led flat screen TVs and Blu-ray players and cable. Other features are alarm clock radios with dual dock for iPods and iPhones and high-speed, wireless Internet.

The new main area with its grand open spaces makes the absolute most of the surrounding natural Caribbean beauty in a minimalist design.

The main pool area has been completely renovated to include trellised platforms for early morning and late afternoon yoga classes, and shaded seating areas in natural woods and white canopies and cushions.

“Casa de Campo set the benchmark for luxury travel in the Caribbean” said general manager Alberto Grau, “and we are very excited to continue this fine reputation into the future.”
