Vacation Like a Former President at Casa de Campo

Casa de Campo, the exclusive 7,000-acre resort in La Romana in the Dominican Republic, is known as a Caribbean getaway for elites around the globe, including fashion designers, musicians, actors, past presidents, and professional athletes—both retired and active. The late Oscar de la Renta established his own oceanfront estate on the Teeth of the Dog, the resort’s legendary golf course, and Jay-Z and Beyoncé used this location to celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary. Other dedicated guests include Michael Jordan, who hosted his bachelor party in Villa Vogue years back, and George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, who frequent the golf courses. The list goes on. Now, Casa de Campo is giving all customers the chance to walk in the shoes of these celebrity guests, literally. The newly launched In Your Shoes experience allows visitors to shadow the routines of these A-listers, and receive over-the-top treatment from the dedicated staff. Starting at $350,000, this special seven-night villa reservation includes a closet equipped with designer shoes—from Chanel and Louboutin sandals and wedges to Gianvito Rossi alligator pumps—tailored to the customer’s needs. After guests land at one of the three nearby airports, they will be taken on a helicopter transfer directly to the resort’s helipad. The sprawling villa will have a maid, butler, chef, and driver working around the clock throughout the visit. Other exciting features include daily spa treatments (in villa or at the spa), private horseback riding tours, unlimited rounds of golf on Teeth of the Dog, a private yacht daytrip to Catalina Island, and a private backstage tour of the Amphitheatre at Altos de Chavón. The splurge will even support a good cause, with a $10,000 donation made in the guest’s name to their choice of a local charity that Casa de Campo supports.For golf lovers who simply want to experience the Pete Dye–designed courses, Casa de Campo is also offering two extraordinary golf packages through December. For $247 per person per night, the Unlimited Teeth of the Dog with Breakfast package includes all-day play on the course, and also on Dye Fore (27 holes) and The Links (18 holes). In addition, guests will be treated to the daily breakfast buffet at Lago restaurant and given a golf cart to navigate the property. Starting at $374, the Unlimited Teeth of the Dog Inclusive will give guests all of the above, and also daily lunch, dinner and drinks, unlimited horseback riding, access to the tennis courts, one round at the Shooting Club, and more. Be sure to get after these deals while you can. As the resort’s president, Andres Pichardo Rosenberg, sees it, “Life is too short to not treat yourself to all the luxuries, world-class golf, fun activities and lavish amenities [offered at] Casa de Campo.”
