Step back in time to Colonial Santo Domingo at the richly unique Casas del XVI.

The Setting

A truly one-of-a-kind-Kind hotel experience, Casas del XVI is a unique collection of houses, some dating from the 16th century, in the Colonial City district of Santo Domingo. Set in the center of the walkable UNESCO World Heritage Site, this Conde Nast winner for “Best Designed Hotels” is long on Colonial charms amid modern boutique refinement. Adorned with local art and surrounded by fruit trees, this is a New World utopia at its finest.

Sleep and Sanctuary

Guests of Casas Del XVI will be head-to-toe immersed in Spanish Colonial charms in the twenty guest rooms and suites within the uniquely designed casas, where old world romance meets modern luxury and comfort. Set across the hotel’s six buildings you’ll be pampered with colonial luxuries like private butler service, and newer must-haves like complimentary Wi-Fi, large HDTVs, coma-inducing beds and iPhone/iPads to loan.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

Here’s how it works at Casas del XVI, the hotel essentially operates on a bed and breakfast basis; each morning your butler will ask where you’d prefer to dine – in casa or courtyard – before laying out a tasty spread. Anything you’re hungering for can be prepared, including all dietary restrictions. The chef can put together a bespoke private lunch or dinner menu on request (with some notice). Of course, Dominican rum (along with other spirits) is on-hand in the honesty bars in two of the casas to enhance any moment, have your butler whip up a daiquiri. As they say, when in the Dominican...

How’s this for super cool? A gastronomic experience like no other is also offered where you will learn from the hand of Casas del XVI’s Chef in an intimate cooking class in one of the colonial houses. Together you will prepare five specialties of Casas del XVI from beginning to end mixed with anecdotes and history about Dominican cuisine, its roots and influences. Afterward, enjoy the delicious dishes for dinner along with wine pairing in a private area for you and your classmates. At the end of the evening, you will receive a recipe book of the dishes that you cooked so you can share your new talent when you return home.

The Art of De-stressing

Casas del XVI offers its own Wellness Coach. The trainer will devise a program tailored to the guest, advising them on nutrition and physical training to achieve the desired results. The experience of doing toning and/or cardio routines around the monuments of the Colonial City or in the privacy of the house is the perfect mix to explore the magical surroundings of Casas del XVI while staying in shape.

For those looking for the ultimate pampering experience or means to balance mind and body in the comfort of their room, massages and treatments at Casas del XVI are the perfect indulgences. Choose a treatment like the “holistic ritual de la casa,” a relaxing therapy using milk and coconut salts, rosemary, orange and essential oils.

Guest may also de-stress poolside at Casa Macoris or the unheated pool in the inner courtyard of Casa de los Mapas (unless either Casa has been booked for exclusive use). This pretty patch has grassy banks, tropical ferns and palm grass along one edge, and a smattering of day-beds; after sundown, it’s lit by candlelight.

Once owned by the architect who implemented restoration and civil works in the Colonial City, original grey and white marble floors remain in the house reminding us of its former glory and its connection to the first Cathedral in the new world. All the rooms open to the tranquil central courtyard where you can enjoy the beautiful song of tropical birds resting nearby or at the house’s lush mango tree.

Casa Los Mapas dates back to the Spanish colonial era and is located on the grounds of the former Dominican Monastery, successive uses and restorations have transformed the house, surpassing its original state.

The house features a welcoming and colorful interior and a central garden with plunge pool designed to isolate the home from the heat and sound of the bustling streets.
