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

  • The gates of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Angkor empire. There are 5 gates to the capital, built in the 12th century. The main gate was made with sculptures of 54 gods, one on each side, and the same number of demons on the other. I got that eerie feeling while driving through. I was in a Tuk Tuk and couldn’t help but stop and take a deep breath before entering, my heart was beating out of my chest. I’ve only made it to 2 gates but would love to go back and learn more. Looking at the picture got all the feelings back 💕
Thanks to @beautifulcambodia for guiding me!
  • You will always be the one person I’ll never stop looking for in a crowded place 💕
  • A little green overdose and into the jungle 🦋
  • I am made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever loved me, cared or inspired me or spoken one word of encouragement to me. Who I am is because of the people in my life 💕
  • They told me I had to be ready at 4:30am to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat, the UNESCO site and the largest religious monument in the world. A Tuk Tuk drove me to the site, it was about 30 minutes off-road(ish), dark with no street lights and it was cold. I sat outside the temple gates looking at absolutely nothing, total darkness. I couldn’t see a thing for an hour. Then, sunrise... and I start seeing shadows of the temple and colors in the sky and there it was. They said that I was one of the luckiest ones because October is the wettest season and so they rarely get a clear sky at sunrise. And here I was, staring and what was once a black endless nothing to a place I always dreamed of ever seeing! 💕
  • You know how sometimes, your life is so perfect you’re afraid for the next moment, because it couldn’t possibly be quite as good? That’s what it feels like being in Cambodia for the first time.
  • Permission to call it my own... permission to hold on to whatever I fall in love with.
  • It was the last morning in London @thesavoylondon - I always get emotional leaving this city! A place I once called home 💕Happy weekend everyone!
  • Spent one morning with Annee on @demamielskin farm where she taught me what she learned on Chinese medicine, meditation and the way her essential oils were made. I even got to make my own! Her products are sold on @netaporter and she has a 3 year waiting list!!!! She’s an incredible woman and partnered up with @virginatlantic to provide the ‘Altitude oil’ for upper class passengers. #LivefromVirgin
  • I spent a morning @theroofgardens , A Virgin Limited Edition by @richardbranson - An English woodland garden, with over 100 species of trees, a stream, and a garden pond that is the home to pintail ducks and four flamingos called Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks!
