Casa de Campo is a cultural landmark with a strong heritage that prides itself on sharing its stories with its many visitors to the country. Before it became an iconic resort, the land was once a retreat for executives of Gulf & Western, which at the time was the parent company to Paramount Pictures. Given the studio connection, directors, producers and actors made their way to the island, which shaped the property into a notable landmark for celebrities and movies alike.

Paramount Pictures created the Altos de Chavón, a replica 16th century Mediterranean village located on a hilltop overlooking the Chavón River. Designed by Dominican architect Jose Antonio Caro and Italian master designer and cinematographer Roberto Coppa, the village is a cultural center for shopaholics, residents, tourists and working artists from all over the world. The art gallery fosters a dialogue of creativity and cultural exchange. The site is also home to an archaeological museum, the St. Stanislaus Catholic Church, and a 5,000-seat Grecian-style amphitheater that hosts concerts and events. Sting, Elton John, Andrea Bocelli, Gloria Estefan and Rod Stewart have all performed there.

The resort has its own private beach, Minitas Beach, where you can relax on the white sand or take part in water sports like kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkeling. This beach is located right in the heart of the resort, so guests never have to go very far for a little sun and dip. But perhaps the best thing about Minitas Beach is that it’s an unspoiled haven with a calm and relaxing atmosphere, perfect for kicking back and relaxing from the comfort of a chaise lounge chair or indulging in a fresh piña colada or a burger with fries.
