Villas del Lago Lake Resort & Campground

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a unique Lake Resort in the Dominican Republic - still in the baby steps. So far we have a lodge with several suites for rent, a campground area with some galmping tents, a restaurant, and a boathouse. We offer activities for our guests like kayak rental, SUP, horseback riding, hiking, boating, jetski, fishing and more. Our goal is to stay as ECO as possible and to use the local resources for food and construction. 80% of our guests are dominicans, mostly from Santiago and Santo Domingo.

    In the near future we are going to build a bigger restaurant with a bathing lagoon and treehouse platform, some cabins and a 5* glamping area with 180° lakeview.
