The Dominican Treehouse Village is a unique property located in the rain forest near Samana. Famous for whale watching, Samana is strategically located on the north eastern part of the island, with unparalleled views, beaches, and tropical flora and fauna. The treehouse village itself is one of the most unique properties you’ll ever visit, like a magical city on stilts in the middle of the forest. You’ll feel like you’ve escaped to a make-believe world.
Live in a treehouse. Get close to nature. Make your morning commute across stepping stones and a rope bridge and leave traffic and the news behind. Each day, you will wake to fresh coffee and cacao, a delicious buffet breakfast, yoga, meditation and bliss. And no internet. Unplug and unwind, treehouse style.
All of your meals are included at the Dominican Treehouse Village. Breakfast includes fresh fruit and juice, local delicacies, and Dominican coffee and cacao. Enjoy lunch on the beach with fish pulled straight from the ocean, coconut and pineapple drinks, and the best papas fritas and tostones you've ever tasted. The DTHV team will wow you each night at dinner with a four course meal of appetizers, creative soups, delicious organic dinners.... and there is always dessert.
Our retreat swag bags are epic, and often have amazing surprises. You don't need much out here in the jungle, though there are a few must haves:
Bring sunscreen, personal toiletries and medications, and shorts and swimsuits. We highly recommend rain jackets, as downpours HAPPEN in the rain forest!
The weather is warm and humid, but can be breezy at night. A light hoodie or jacket is often welcome.
This location is truly beautiful, so DO bring a camera. We recommend leaving very expensive equipment at home unless you are prepared to deal with the humidity! We do keep a professional photographer on staff, so bring an easy camera.
Pack sneakers! While it will be tempting to live in flip flops, some of the hiking (Including the zipline) can be muddy and rocky, and you'll appreciate the footwear.
Bring a little cash for incidentals. Tips, souvenirs ... you won't need much, but it's nice to have. Almost everyone takes US dollars.
Share one queen bed or claim a bunk bed in this budget friendly room. Each room has two occupants and shares a bath with your neighbors across the bridge!
