For an idyllic, sun-drenched getaway, there’s no better destination than the Dominican Republic. Renowned for its pristine tropical beaches adorned with pastel-hued waters and towering coconut palms, this paradise boasts a diverse landscape that spans lush rainforests, sprawling savannahs, and majestic highlands.
Whether you’re an avid golfer seeking world-class courses or an architecture enthusiast captivated by Spanish Colonial design, the Dominican Republic has something exceptional to offer.
Nestled along the northern coast of this enchanting country lies the charming town of Sosúa, a must-visit destination. The crown jewel here is undeniably Sosúa Beach, a secluded cove adorned with an offshore coral reef teeming with vibrant tropical fish and exotic flora. The tranquil waters beckon both swimmers and scuba divers to explore their depths.
For those seeking an intimate and rejuvenating retreat, steering clear of the bustling resorts is a wise choice. Instead, consider a stay at a boutique bed and breakfast, with Casa Veintiuno topping our list. This delightful retreat promises not only luxurious accommodations but also personalized, attentive service that will make your stay truly unforgettable.
Nestled in a tranquil setting, Casa Veintiuno enjoys a prime location, a mere 3-minute walk to both the pristine beach and the vibrant heart of Sosúa, teeming with an array of restaurants and bars. Additionally, it’s conveniently situated just a 10-minute drive away from the Puerto Plata airport, ensuring a hassle-free arrival and departure experience. Complimentary parking is provided on the premises too.
Style & Character
Run by the lovely Saskia and Marc, Casa Veintiuno is a true “home away from home” where intimacy and luxury converge. Their inviting guest suites have been thoughtfully designed to seamlessly merge sophisticated design with bright and contemporary interiors, alongside their wonderful personalized service and stunning ocean views and sunsets.
Service & Facilities
Casa Veintiuno boasts an inviting swimming pool and jacuzzi, surrounded by cozy lounge chairs shaded by umbrellas, all set in lush tropical gardens with palm trees. Whether you’re seeking a refreshing daytime dip or a tranquil evening under the starlit sky, the pool is the ideal retreat.
Quench your thirst at the bar with freshly crafted cocktails, juices, and other beverages, or head upstairs to the comfortable lounge area and terrace with ocean views.
For those inclined toward fitness, there is a small but well-equipped exercise area featuring a treadmill, spinning bike, home trainer, and cross trainer. And if you’re an animal lover, you may have the pleasure of meeting their friendly hotel dogs: “Botti,” “Pooka,” and “Maximus”.
The B&B also provides an array of additional amenities, including an Espresso machine in your suite, a selection of books to read, and complimentary Wi-Fi by the pool, in the restaurant, and in your room. The property also enjoys daily cleaning services, a 24-hour reception, room service (available from Wednesday through Sunday until 10:00 PM), laundry services, and assistance with taxi bookings, airport transportation, excursions, and currency exchange.
Casa Veintiuno features three exclusive, sunlit suites, each thoughtfully designed with its own unique character. These contemporary and elegantly appointed rooms boast spacious bathrooms and two of them treat you to breathtaking ocean views. In every suite, you’ll relish the comforts of Auping boxspring beds, sumptuous Egyptian cotton bed linens, and plush bathrobes.
Prepare for your day in style within the well-appointed dressing rooms, complete with full-length mirrors. The inviting sitting areas feature comfortable sofas and elegant tables, perfect for relaxation.
Stay entertained with smart flat-screen TVs offering satellite cable, along with the rich sound of Bose Sound Touch systems. Savor your favorite coffee from the Nespresso machine, and enjoy the perfect climate thanks to air conditioning and fans. Your belongings are secure in the in-room safe, and a well-stocked minibar ensures refreshment is always within reach. Stay connected with high-speed wireless internet throughout your stay.
Among these splendid suites, the Mystique Suite stands out with its indulgent combination of a bathtub and shower. Meanwhile, the Tranquility Suite offers the luxury of a double shower, and the Secret Suite provides a convenient single shower.
Please note that all suites are designated as non-smoking, and access to the property is restricted to registered guests only. Your privacy and comfort are paramount at Casa Veintiuno.
Food & Drink
While everything is truly excellent at this luxury bed and breakfast, the food at Casa Veintiuno is the pinnacle. Restaurant Casa Veintiuno is open daily for a delicious breakfast overlooking the tropical gardens, pool, or Gustav Klimt’s paintings. Dinners are also served from Wednesday to Sunday (the restaurant is closed after breakfast on Mondays and Tuesdays).
On days when the restaurant is closed, Saskia and Marc, the lovely and very friendly owners of the B&B, are very happy to recommend other restaurants in the area. Breakfasts at Casa Veintiuno are excellent and include a variety of fruits, juices, breads, and eggs made to order, but the dinners at their restaurant downstairs are even more special.
Probably the best restaurant in Sosúa, the Casa Veintiuno restaurant offers delicious dishes ranging from filet mignon with exquisite Belgian fries to curried chicken, pasta, and soup. Incidentally, the Casa Veintiuno team are happy to arrange daily lunches and dinners for an additional fee.
Casa Veintiuno is a haven where you can escape the every day and truly unwind in the Dominican Republic. With its inviting pool, well-equipped facilities, and friendly atmosphere, it offers a perfect escape. Experience the best of Sosúa at Casa Veintiuno, where comfort and hospitality await.
