CASA DE CAMPO
About Casa de Campo
Discover the quality and Caribbean elegance that is synonymous with Casa de Campo. A perfect vacation spot for golfers, couples, children, families, friends, group meetings, and destination weddings. Delight in glorious gastronomic experiences, Casa's signature service and style, abundant natural beauty and the soothing atmosphere this destination offers. As a guest you can play, be pampered or simply relax and rejuvenate. In 1975 Gulf Western developed 7,000 acres (28 km2) of its Central Romana sugar mill's land into the Casa de Campo resort. Situated in La Romana on the southeast coast of the Dominican Republic, Casa de Campo (Spanish for "Country House") is a Ponderosa style, tropical seaside resort. The first to enjoy the luxuries of this enclave were friends of the late Charles Bluhdorn, Gulf+ Western’s founder and CEO, who built the retreat. One of Bluhdorn's Dominican friends, Oscar de la Renta, was one of the first to build a villa in the resort. After Bluhdorn's death, the Cuban-American Fanjul family (the world’s top sugar barons), bought Casa and most of the Gulf+ & Western properties. Without compromising the feeling of exclusivity and comfort, they have added a higher level of elegance in this fabulous tropical setting.
Casa de Campo Golf Courses
Casa de Campo’s Pete Dye-designed golf courses are among the best in the world. The “Teeth of the Dog” has seven holes right in the Caribbean Sea. It consistently ranks on the Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 Courses in the World” and is considered the finest course in the Caribbean. The “Links”, is a challenging inland course; and “Dye Fore” perched atop the bluffs of the Chavon River, is a masterpiece with seven cliffs –side holes and is destined to rival the famed Teeth of the Dog.

Altos de Chavon
Breathtaking venues, ideal for weddings or special occasions, can be found at Altos de Chavon, a replica of a 16th century Mediterranean village, perched above the Chavon River. You can stroll through the cobblestone streets and visit the amphitheater, a site for shows and concerts throughout the year. In 1976, Dominican stonecutters, woodworkers, and iron-smiths combined their crafts to create the rich architectural landscape that would emerge as Altos de Chavon, a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village perched high above the Chavon River. Today this vibrant cultural village perched high above the Chavon River embodies half a millennium of the island's finest tradition of crafts and art and is home to a famous Design School, accredited to the New York Parsons School of Design. The distant mountains of eastern Hispaniola merge with the sea to create the perfect setting for this celebration of the region's past. A walk down the cobblestone paths of Altos de Chavon reveals, at every turn, architecture reminiscent of another era. Coral block and terra cotta buildings enfold craft workshops, artists’ studios, galleries, shops, and restaurants. Complementing this tranquil evocation of the past is the exuberant artistry of today. This romantic and exclusive venue is a perfect setting to make your wedding day feel like a fairy tale. Here, your dreams will only be surpassed by the reality as you recite your vows overlooking the ocean, in the picturesque Saint Stanislaus Church.
