  • Description

    Description

    Our lodge used to be a family summer home, graced with lush tropical foliage, coconut, palm and mahogany.

    Today, the third generation of his family still offers its passion for hospitality, encouraging visitors to discover gastronomy based on organic resources, to experience wellbeing and to enjoy the biodiversity of this unique region.

    Nestled beside the Dominican Republic’s only biosphere reserve, our lodge has sustainability at its heart. The lodge was made from local thatch and native trees and the hotel restaurant serves local seafood and ingredients from the on-site organic garden. The natural world also finds its way into the woodland Tanama Eco Spa, where therapists use Larimar stones and garden herbs in soothing treatments. The site offers the most unforgettable views of the Caribbean Sea.

    We want to make it a worldwide wellness spot, having yoga and wellness retreats throughout the year, and we want to help the community and thrive to make this place as sustainable as possible, with a deep sense of connection to nature, while helping awaken the people in the community.

    Lic. Polibio Diaz Foundation leads the development of an artisanal village, which fuses the integration of the community with the project. It is an interesting initiative that will create the platform for the neighboring population to participate in sustainable activities to improve and preserve their local and traditional knowledge.

    Through the artisanal village, our foundation will provide the land and infrastructure for local residents to promote their services and crafts, such as soaps, detergents, coffee, honey, preserves, larimar and other artisanal crafts, some of which will also be used in the project. Our foundation will lay the foundations and seek support with existing institutions and ONGs for proportion.

    This is an amazing place to help make a change in this world and in the people.
