Fresh Picks: Casa de Campo

- Joy Pecknold, Passport blog editor

“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside Casa de Campo.

Where: This resort on the south eastern Caribbean coast of Dominican Republic, sits on, oh, 7,000 acres of limestone cliffs, sandy beaches and golfing green. Nearby is Altos de Chavón, a replica of a 16th century Mediterranean village which holds within it boutiques, restaurants, a design school affiliated with Parsons in New York, and a stone amphitheater (Frank Sinatra, Duran Duran and Julio Iglesias have all played there).

What: There are rooms and suites within the hotel, or book out a expansive, equipped villa (3-7 bedrooms, full kitchen, garden, pool, touring cart) and stay awhile. Amenities include three championship golf courses (designed by Golf Hall of Fame member Pete Dye), Mediterranean seaside village-inspired marina, tennis, horseback riding and water sports.

Who: The whole brood. With that much to do and that much room to do it in, it might actually put the holiday in family holiday. Or you could just keep it to the two of you. The St. Stanislaus Church in Altos de Chavón is a beautiful spot to get hitched (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

Why: Mi casa es su casa.
