Casa Colonial Beach & Spa – Dominican RepublicLike0

Puerto Plata Located on the exotic north coast of the Dominican Republic and directly on the crystal water, Casa Colonial Beach & Spa is the ultimate, world-class resort! Casa Colonial Beach & Spa is a colonial mansion, where old world charm meets modern sensibilities. It has its own beach and so many more temptations: the spa, the enchanting pool, water sports, golf, as well as meeting and wedding services.  Casa Colonial is a true Dominican Republic boutique hotel escape and a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World in the country.

Each of Casa Colonial’s 50 suites is both elaborately and elegantly decorated in contemporary furnishings.
Puerto Plata is the largest coastal town on the north coast of The Dominican Republic and is instantly recognizable by the dramatic 2,600 ft high Peak of Mount Isabel de Torres which can be seen for miles around.

History: Puerto Plata was officially founded and named in 1496 by order of Christopher Columbus, and the name of the city literally translates to port of silver, aptly chosen for the silvery hues of its natural harbor. Puerto Plata’s turn-of-the-century charm is evident in its Victorian architecture. Many of its gracious gingerbread homes date back to the republican period.

Playa Dorada, where Casa Colonial is located, is a 250 acre self-contained resort complex offering travelers the choice of things to do including a shopping mall, discos, casinos, restaurants, and of course the 13 mile beautiful sandy beach of Playa Dorada.

Offer for Travel Junkie readers have one complimentary 50 minute Thalasso therapy session at the renowned Bagua Spa (Thalassotherapy is the therapeutic use of the ocean, its climate, and marine products like sea water, algae and seaweed, and alluvial mud. The principle behind thalassotherapy is that repeated exposure to sea air and immersion in warm seawater, mud, and protein-rich algae to help restore the body’s natural chemical balance.)  PROMO CODE: CCTJD2013  Book here

  • Soneva Fushi is an Island that celebrates the natural environment. The first sustainable luxury hotel in Maldives since 1995, creating a positive impact on Baa Atoll and the neighboring islands. I was proud and happy to be part of the island and learn so much more about sustainability travel. @discoversoneva
  • Hello winter in Dubai. Back here for a couple of days and rushing through the week before I take off again. I was fortunate enough to have met and worked with @zeebalife who I quickly ‘clicked’ with the moment we started chatting earlier this year. I don’t ‘click’ very easily I must admit... and I’m very much in my own bubble... and that’s ok... so when I do, I hang on to them because it just works without any effort. And it’s the best kind of friendship. Happy Sunday! #MyDubai
  • Just because she let go... doesn’t mean she wanted to... 💫
  • Let’s take a ride to the spa together 🌴 @fsmaldives
  • Droning isn’t always easy in Maldives especially when you see seaplanes crossing and guest worrying about their full right privacy. But at sunrise, when everyone is still asleep, and when the jets are no where close by, you can always fly really quick and capture the beauty of the island - ❤️🌴 @fsmaldives
  • I am drawn to your imperfections. I am drawn to shared interests and hobbies in people. I am drawn to the light in your eyes when you talk about something you love. I am drawn to your success and to your failures and most of all your challenges. I am drawn to every non-perfect side of you, because otherwise, everything will be lifeless.
  • How long can you stay in Maldives? For me, I think I can do about two weeks and never get bored, even on rainy days! @fsmaldives
  • From where she drones from @fsmaldives Who said a 5 year old couldn’t use a drone haven’t met Chloè 😊
  • Sometimes, unexpected friendships are the best 💫 - Sunny, @saltysun__  the surf manager at @discoversoneva has started a sustainability surfing programme - one of its kind in Maldives. So when she told me let’s go out at sea in the pouring rain with crazy winds, I just knew we would be friends instantly! I can’t begin to describe how much I adore the sea and what it means to me. I’m in my element. ❤️
  • A wish you were here kind of moment 😊

  • Touchdown back to my favorite place... Maldives. 
Getting involved in our ocean conservation efforts by the marine biologist at @discoversoneva and the sustainability programme they are working on, for example, the Soneva Ocean Stewards (SOS) programme has taught hundreds of children how to swim and encourages the local community to appreciate the precious marine ecosystem surrounding them.
  • The year is almost over - flew by so quick at times and times it passed too slow!! This was shot in January early this year. I have a good feeling about 2018 despite 2017 being a little challenging. What are your Christmas plans? I’m spending it in Lebanon with family and friends, what about you?
