While located at the heart of the Casa de Campo resort, the sense of ease and seclusion at Casa Palapa is palpable; the 3 acre peninsular, stretching out into the Caribbean Sea, offers wonderful vistas that compound the magic of this property. Designed by the Yacqui Mexican Indian architect, Marco Aldaco, named among the 100 best architects in the world by Architectural Digest, the hand of a master is to be found everywhere. Casa Palapa provides a blissful escape in a perfect tropical setting.
Exotic outdoors “Palapa”, the Mexican term for a circular, palm thatched building supported by pillars, is central to the property. Whilst the rear pillars are encased by a single wall, the remaining structure is left open to the breeze, creating panoramic views; combine this with mesmerizing 30 foot tall ceilings and the Palapa makes a stunning tropical sitting room. Surrounded by the sea, set among beautifully maintained gardens with immense trees and orchards, Casa Palapa is an enchanting fusion of indoor-outdoor living.
Impeccable design The main family house crowns the property and is loosely connected by shady terraces and palm-vaulted walkways to the Grand Palapa, an unforgettable space for welcoming guests. Winding walkways from these main buildings lead to the ocean-side pool surrounded by verdant bushes, splashed with color. Beyond the pool, a terrace shaded by a pergola covered in white-flowering vines is made for entertaining guests and relaxing over lunch and behind an ornamental garden is used for alfresco, candle-lite dinning. Further walkways meander through exotic flowerbeds to the guesthouse, with 3 bedrooms, kitchen, own Palapa and beach, providing independence and privacy to the main house.
