Luxury yoga retreats in sterile, snooty resorts are fading in popularity. Why not try an affordable yoga retreat in a jungle tree house? People wanting eco-adventure with their 2018 yoga retreats have a new option: The Dominican Tree House Village.
Tl:dr – Just watch the video, because WOW!
Located on the Dominican Republic’s northeast Peninsula de Samana, The Dominican Tree House Village is quickly making a name for itself as a yoga retreat. It has been open for about three years and they have a perfect 5/5 rating on TripAdvisor with 300 reviews at the time of writing.
The village has 22 rooms (sleeps 44 people) and several all-inclusive packages including meals, tours, bikes, and airport transfers. The all-inclusive amenities also include pool, yoga classes (of course), and, by all accounts, the best jungle zip-line in the country. Their target audience are people interested in green travel, adventure travel, yoga travel and destination weddings.
Between yoga sessions and instruction, guests can indulge in myriad activities. Bike to the quiet and tranquil local beach, via a stop at the local waterfall where one can brave the rope swing. Join a pickup game of volleyball with the locals or explore the rivers and ocean caves nearby. Evenings involve games, a fire pit, hammocks and, inevitably, several trips to the bar for rum drinks. Full-day tours are also available.
The Dominican Republic is the most popular, geographically diverse destinations in the Caribbean, with direct flights from New York, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis (seasonal), Dallas (seasonal), Toronto, Montreal, Mexico City, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, London Gatwick, Vienna, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich (seasonal), Zurich and Moscow among others.
