I had seen this property on social meeting and had been wanting to visit the Dominican Tree House Village for a long time, and as my first trip post-pandemic, it was absolutely the experience I needed! The location is incredible and the staff go above and beyond to ensure everyone has an enjoyable stay. What a unique way to appreciate the beauty of Dominican nature and disconnect from the outside world! The food and drinks were delicious, the activities on the property were great, and the excursions were unforgettable. I would call this experience "jungle glamping" more than really roughing it, and had I known I would have stayed even longer. I look forward to coming back in the future!

I always wanted to see how it is in a jungle. It was amazing experience for me. And also first time on Dominicana. Everyone was so helpful and nice. I’ve lived my life to the fullest in Dominica Tree House Village. When you enter the resort you can immediately feel the vibe of a jungle. And even hear the voices of different animals. Then you can rest in a tree house that is perfect for stay in such a beautiful place. Everything is open but also you have a privacy because you can cover the walls. The food is also amazing because there is a chef that cook in from of you in open area where you can chillout and eat. If you need more adrenaline you can also slide on a zipline. And this is amazing when you feel like you are flying above the jungle. I can’t wait to visit this place again with my friends and family.

It is my 36th country that I visit. But It is my fav place on earth. I spent there my 25th birthday and it was perfect choice. The best quality, people, vibe and food. You can relax and also have fun. You live in the heart of the jungle in tree house. Can’t wait to visit this place again.

My girlfriend and I decided to take a trip here and fell in love with the property, the food and the people. It's a wonderful space to disconnect, getaway and enjoy nature and your own company. From the moment we arrived we were taken care of. The property is naturally gorgeous and we were taken away by the views from our room. The bed was comfy and the swinging seats in the room allow you to just relax. Alex, Lena, Stanley, Chef Leo and Boom Boom Ha Ha Ha were just a few of the people we encountered who work there but make your stay feel like you are with family. The food on the property is amazing, the drinks are fantastic and the excursions are incredible. $1 out of every $5 spent with the resort goes back into the community. Nothing I describe about the place does it any justice. You have to see it for yourself! 10/10 experience.

Such an awesome concept… To be able to live in the rainforest in an artisanal eco treehouse was once in a lifetime experience. The sounds of the rainforest ecco around you 24h a day from the birds to the geckos its an unforgettable experience. Who needs a therapist when you have this place to get away from the daily grind & all without mosquitoes…   ROOM Well it’s a treehouse that has been tastefully done with local eco materials. It’s a very comfortable stay with double bed & swinging chairs overlooking the forest beyond. This is not camping, it’s a hotel room in the canopy. Each room has a bathroom with cold water showers great for starting the day fresh although hot ones are available separately. The bed is super comfortable, sheets are changed daily & the net keeps away any bugs although there are no mosquitoes here. The rooms are connected by elevated walkways through the trees. AREAS  You will spend a lot of your time at the main tree house lodge where breakfast & dinner is served along with the inclusive bar with delicious rum cocktails. The views from here overlooking the forest are fantastic, I often sat her for hours looking out for the abundance of wildlife from bird to butterflies the sights & sounds of this place with have a profound affect on you. There are so many places to explore & get away from the daily grind from the swimming pool to the fire pit & yoga pavilion you’ll have no trouble finding solitude if you wish & if socialising is your preference then here you’ll meet friends for life as it has such a vibrant community, no need to worry about coming alone. FOOD Breakfast is served al la carte while dinner is a communal buffet affair. They have different food everyday so your sure not to be bored. Make sure to try the local cacao drink in the morning it’s a great alternative to coffee. For lunch they give you a voucher to mami’s restaurnt that’s located at a beautiful beach close by where you’ll take a free cruiser bicycle to if not doing one of their epic tours. The beach was a highlight for me & is actually a protected area due to it being a sea turtle nesting sight. ACTIVITIES So many things to do here. The daily excursions are awesome from the horseback riding trip to el limon waterfall to the scooter tours of playa rincon you will never get bored. The on-site zip lining is such an exhilarating experience flying above the canopy on the 12 lines that navigate the forest I had the privilege to see a humming bird while on the platform & it’s super safe too with 2 safety lines. The 40min massages for only $10 are an absolute bargain & a must while visiting. LOCATION  You’ll find this place hidden in the forest on the north coast of the island about 3 hours from Santo Domingo, I rented a car & drove there it’s quite easy, they also offer a taxi service. It’s a very safe secluded area of the island with a only a small village close by. People are super friendly & the nearby beach has a 24 hour armed guard.
