You Can Sleep in a Real-Life Treehouse at This Dominican Republic Hotel

Dominican Republic Epic Stays
by Matador Creators Jan 12, 2023

Dominican Tree House Village is a unique, all-inclusive boutique hotel located in the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic. The resort’s treehouses sit above the rainforest and has multiple open-air buildings connected by swinging rope bridges, making it the perfect place for your rainforest vacation dreams to finally come to life.

How to get to Dominican Tree House village

Getting to Dominica Tree House Village Hotel isn’t very difficult, but it can be a little time-intensive. The resort is on the northeast side of the island, so the closest international airport (Santo Domingo Las Americas ) is about three hours away. However, you can fly there direct from East Coast cities like Orlando, Miami, Boston, and NYC, so it’s likely going to be the best option for most travelers. The hotel can arrange taxis and pickups for guests; just email them before you arrive.

If you’re coming from elsewhere in the country, look for a domestic flight to Samana El Catey airport, which is much closer.

Rooms at Dominican Tree House Village

The Dominican Tree House Village offers a unique range of treehouse-style rooms. All of the rooms come with air conditioning, ceiling fans and private bathrooms. Each room has its own unique features, from thatched roofs to hand-crafted furniture. The rooms also come with private balconies with views of the rainforest, providing an extra layer of luxury. All the rooms are open-air with open-air bathrooms, but there are mosquito nets around the beds (though being above the trees means there aren’t many mosquitos). There are also roomier suites, a family room, and a “classic treehouse”,” which has the best views, but doesn’t have running water (there’s a shared bathroom nearby).

The best time to visit the Dominican Republic

The best time to visit the Dominican Republic depends on what kind of holiday experience you’re looking for. June through August are the hottest months in the Dominican Republic, with temperatures reaching over 80 degrees F. Winter months are fairly mild with temperatures averaging around 73 F, so it’s still warm enough for outdoor activities, but you may want a sweater at night. It’s also less crowded during that period, which makes sightseeing easier. The rainy season typically occurs from October to December.

How does Dominican Tree House Village’s all-inclusive rate work?

Dominican Tree House Village offers an all-inclusive rate for its guests. This includes meals, lodging, and some activities. Breakfast and dinner are served in the main restaurant area, and lunch can be enjoyed either in the restaurant or elsewhere on property (or packed to go, if you’ll be out hiking all day). The all-inclusive doesn’t include beer, wine, or drinks — unless you’re happy with bottomless rum drinks, which are included in the cost.

All of the on-property amenities are included, like using the infinity pool and yoga dome, hanging in the social areas, or relaxing on hanging chairs around the outdoor fire pits. And when you book, you can add on extra activities in the area, such as a whale watching tour, a snorkel boat tour to a remote beach, or forested hikes to a waterfall, complete with a rope swing. Rates start at $300 per night, though you can also book packages that include excursions and airport transfers.
