Deep in the tropical rainforest sit the 20 open-air cabins of Dominican Tree House Village. Life is simpler here at 10 to 40 feet above the jungle floor, and these thatched-roofed, curtain-draped accommodations, each with its own private terrace, are built around an eco-lodge suspended among the canopy. Pathways to this central space, or to the on-site bar or restaurant, form a network of treetop bridges that turn every jaunt to eat or drink into a rustic adventure.
If you’re looking for a different kind of adventure, there’s no shortage of delightful activities available even in this remote locale. From horseback riding to waterfall hikes, ground tours on boat or bike to canopy tours on a zip line, whatever outing you choose can be arranged with the hotel. You can also visit the on-site yoga dome or zip-line, or hit the Caribbean beaches nearby. Whether taking to the water, sand or treetops, or appreciating the eco-friendliness of your room, you’ll feel uncommonly close to nature at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner.
The hotel’s 20 open-air Tree House cabins are built 10 to 40 feet off the ground on stilts. Each one is enclosed by clean white curtains and a well-built bamboo railing and furnished with a plush queen mattress and soft white sheets. Décor is rustically chic, with hand-woven and wooden accents throughout, a locking chest for valuables and a terrace opening up directly into the jungle foliage. Both cabin and bed are veiled in mosquito netting.While every room does have a 110v power outlet, there is no TV, AC or Wi-Fi, and bathroom facilities are shared. Clean and modern, each of the several community bathrooms are just a short walk from cabins and include a large shower, toilet and sink with complimentary toiletries and a private changing room.
The hotel houses a bar, as well as a dining room that’s located high above the jungle treetops and features organic cuisine. Daily rotating dishes feature local flavors and include traditional American breakfasts and dinners featuring homemade soups, entrees and desserts. Vegetarian, non-dairy and gluten-free custom options are available on advance request.
The Dominican Tree House Eco Village is located on the upper coast of Samana Bay in scenic Samana, in the northeastern section of the Caribbean’s Dominican Republic.
How to Get There
We loved our experience at the Dominican Treehouse Village. Not only was it located in an amazing place close to a great beach, but the local people and culture really shined through in every aspect of the experience. We loved the staff, they made us feel like family and were always there to spend time with us, dance with us, or help us if we needed it. The rooms were awesome and gave us an experience we will never forget. If you get the chance to do any of the excursions, we would highly reccomend El Limon or Playa Rincon. They were fantastic and so much fun. Anyone who is looking for a unique, peaceful and truly amazing stay should visit the Treehouse Village!
So I was looking for a last minute trip, something different. I definitely did not want to do the regular resort ambient. I found the Dominican Tree House Village on Instagram. On there account pictures looked very appealing, exactly what I was looking for. I purchased a the jungle package, which is a couples package. It includes transportation to and from the airport. We we’re picked up in a modern mini van with great AC! The driver was very friendly and made a stop for us to pick up something to eat. We arrived at the village and everyone starting by the locals we’re very friendly and helpful. After a day at the hotel you become like family! It’s a total disconnect from the everyday hectic world. While on premises there is no WiFi, which helps you detach , you let go of your phone and relax! Although you may go down to a local restaurant that provides you with WiFi for a cost of $10 for the duration of your stay, only available at the restaurant where you can go 24 hours. The package also includes a foot, neck and hand massage which we didn’t get to use because we got caught up doing other things but you must book for it. Breakfast and dinner are served at premises and for lunch you get a voucher to go the local restaurant or the restaurant at the local beach which you ride a bike to that is also included with your stay. Stanley the “guest relations manager” is great at what he does! He made our stay enjoyable and very exciting! From serving us drinks at the bar to taking videos and pictures of us while we zip lined, which by the way, was absolutely fun! Harold, another one of the employees is an absolute character! He danced, made us laugh, made sure our luggage was taking care of, and even prepared me a late night snack after missing dinner. The facility is very well maintained and very clean! They have hot showers available, the room I picked had only cold water, which in my opinion does you so good with the heat. They also provide excursions, we chose “El Limón” they pick you up at the Village and take you back. I must warn you, it’s a workout ????! But absolutely worth it! The sceneries are beautiful!!
Dominican Republic ???????? is must! People greet with open arms and are super friendly. If you are looking for an exciting adventure and something completely different and full of nature, the Dominican Tree House Village is a must go place!!
The best vacation ever. The staff makes you feel like family. They go on excursions with you. The view is breath taking and it's so different then any hotel or all inclusive. I am already planning on my next stay.
