Dominican Republic is the up and coming destination of the Caribbean. Luxury resorts, including the recently opened Amanera by Aman Resorts, are choosing this stunning island for its white sand beaches bounded by pastel waters and impossibly tall coconut trees.
Saskia and Marc and their rescue dogs Botti & Pooka run Casa Veintiuno, a luxury bed and breakfast in Sosúa. They fell in love with the fantastic and exotic country of the Dominican Republic and decided to leave Belgium in 2008 for the sunshine. While there is no shame in spending time pampering yourself at one of the all-inclusive resorts, this is a country of remarkable depth and grace, and well-worth exploring. Casa Veintiuno makes the perfect base.

Casa Veintiuno Bed & Breakfast
The peaceful and secluded location of Casa Veintiuno is within walking distance of the beach and the centre of Sosúa, where night life, bars, restaurants, the bank, shops, and markets can be found. This is a very peaceful venue with only 3 rooms and a great view of the ocean and sunset from the roof. It has a beautiful outdoor area with a few lounge chairs and a fabulous pool which is great both for splashing during the daytime and lounging under the stars in the night.
The 3 spacious, modern and clean rooms, have large bathrooms and 2 of them have a beautiful view of the ocean. Suite #1 has a beautiful freestanding bath, a shower, an inside balcony with some sea view and a small outside terrace. Suite #2 has a double shower and an inside balcony with some sea view. Room #3 does not have a sea view but retains the same stylish charm. There is also a large terrace which is only accessible to the guests of these 3 rooms.
All of the luxury rooms have boxspring beds by Auping, Egyptian cotton bed linen and bathrobes of Alexandre Turpault, a dressing room with full length mirror, a sitting area with sofa and table, a flatscreen tv with cable through satellite, a dvd & cd player, a clock radio with connection for ipod/iphone, an espresso machine for coffee and tea and air conditioning with fans. Wireless internet is also included. In the bathrooms, the luxurious bath towels and bathrobes are by Alexandre Turpault plus there is a hairdryer, makeup mirror and a set of bath products.
Casa Veintiuno Restaurant
While everything is truly excellent at this luxury bed and breakfast, the food at Casa Vientiuno is the pinnacle. Belgium is famed for its gourmet cuisine and these Belgiun owners know their food. The breakfasts are excellent and include a variety of fruits, juices, breads, and eggs made to order, but dinner at their restaurant downstairs was even more special.
Probably the best restaurant in Sosua, the Casa Veintiuno restaurant offers delicious dishes ranging from filet mignon with exquisite Belgian fries to curried chicken, pasta and soup.
Pool & Beach
Both the center and the beach are just 3 minutes walk away so you don’t need transportation to get there. At the beach and in the centre you will find lots of local bars, clubs, restaurants and shops. The main beach of Sosua is known for its snorkelling – there are several coral reefs but you need to be a good swimmer to get there on your own. If you prefer privacy and a quieter beach, Playa Alicia approximately 7 minutes walk away is very beautiful and peaceful.
The best airport to fly into is the airport of Puerto Plata and this is only 10 minutes drive from our Casa Veintiuno.
This is the kind of place that you will stay for a week and it simply won’t be long enough. Saskia is the ultimate host. She will tell you the best shops, where to exchange money, where a more private and shaded beach could be found, where to find inexpensive transportation to other cities, right down to which mosquito repellant works best in the local area. Feel special and part of the family. Stay at Casa Veintiuno under the Caribbean sun.
