Casa de Campo: New Offers in its Wellness & Fitness Center

Casa de Campo Resort & Villas maintains its unquestionable leadership by continuously evolving and redefining itself as a sophisticated luxury destination for visitors who demand the utmost quality in all services.

The resort, one of the best in the Caribbean, has entered the 2016 season with a rich and varied offer of sports programs and new options for the physical welfare and holistic health options for its visitors.

The new facilities and programs are designed for family vacations, where all can enjoy a long list of activities to please all ages.

But, there are also interesting options for those who would rather spend a quiet and restful vacation, or for the avid health-oriented individual who is interested in getting fit and exercising properly.

Visitors looking for a vacation experience that complements their active lifestyle will enjoy their stay at Casa de Campo to the fullest.  The resort offers its guests an unrivaled sports program, including four golf courses designed by Pete Dye, a member of the Golf Hall of Fame.

The Teeth of the Dog golf course, one of the best in the world and the number one in the Caribbean, will host the PGA Tour Dominican Republic Open, scheduled to take place from May 8-14, 2016.

Built in the 1970s, it is the most awarded Latin America and Caribbean golf course, and is on the list of the world’s top courses, featuring seven seaside holes.

Last January the golf course hosted the prestigious Latin American Amateur Championship, with the participation of dozens of top golfers.

Polo Challenge

Casa de Campo also features one of the finest Polo Club & Equestrian Centers, which recently celebrated the Polo Challenge, a new high-handicap tournament that attracted the best polo players in the world and “turned us into the regional benchmark for the sport,” said Rafael Torres, president of the world-famous resort.

Fishing enthusiasts can also enjoy the excellent fishing facilities provided by Casa de Campo, as well as the Shooting Center and Tennis Club facilities.

Fitness

Torres notes that Casa de Campo continuously enriches its sports programs with new options, which include innovative programs that will provide guests with overall physical and holistic health.

The new health and fitness facility is headed by Eduardo Mena, a top professional who has worked with professional athletes and international celebrities.

The facility offers specialized consultations, fitness classes, diet and nutrition, as well as cross-fit training, and personal and functional training.

Torres also cites the resort’s recent association with the Pinecrest Physical Therapy, a specialized clinic in this area based in Miami.

The Pinecrest Physical Therapy Center in Casa de Campo is headed by Ron Yacub, a certified specialist with tremendous expertise in physical therapy.

It is a full-service clinic specializing in functional physical therapy and focused on sports-related, strength, and conditioning designed to achieve genuine results in the overall health and fitness of its clients.

With these specialized offers, explained Torres, Casa de Campo offers professional athletes and other guests as well, an excellent opportunity to train and get fit while enjoying a beautiful Caribbean vacation with the family.

Diversity in Accommodations

Since 1974 Casa de Campo has been praised as one of the Caribbean’s top luxury centers for its truly splendid villas, its sports marina and the Altos de Chavon Cultural Village, resembling a 16th century Mediterranean village.

Its excellent dining options offer some of the best cuisine in the region.

Other attractive features include a host of different accommodations, such as villas with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea, the Marina and the Altos de Chavon Village.

The “Los Altos” apartments provide front-row views of the Dye Fore golf course and the beautiful view of the Chavon River.

Torres highlighted the two new restaurants in “La Marina” – the Internacional Pubbelly and the SBG Casa de Campo – both offering the finest casual dining experience in the area.

Art and Culture

The resort has also attracted the attention of national and international artists, who bring their talent to the Chavon Amphitheater.  Also, the resort’s wine and food festivals have attracted the attention of many international wine connoisseurs.

New Summer Camps

A recent plus is the recent alliance between Casa de Campo and the American Sports Academy, where children between 7-17 years of age are provided with the best tradition of American summer camps.

The summer program gives the campers a taste of professional sports instruction, English and Spanish lessons, SAT tutoring, cultural tours and volunteer opportunities for campers.

Torres said that Casa de Campo is also working with the FCBEscola, one of the top soccer academies in the world.

Among its future plans, explained Torres, is the Casa de Campo Real Estate project with the development of beachfront villas for young professionals interested in making a sound investment to provide future benefits for their families. The villas will be developed with environmentally sound construction techniques, and the use of efficient energy and technology.
