Casas del XVI, a new luxury experience in a collection of restored colonial homes right in the heart of historic Ciudad Colonial, Santo Domingo.
Opening in March 2014, Casas del XVI will offer guests a unique perspective on the rich 500-year cultural history of the first city of the New World. With a number of accolades such as the first cathedral, hospital and university in the Americas, Ciudad Colonial can now boast a hotel experience that can match its stature and heritage.
We have ignored convention and created something surprising and original. Capitalizing on the inherited elegance of the striking colonial architecture, we have painstakingly restored three sixteenth-century homes, giving each a contemporary twist with the addition of local art and fittings. The stylish interiors are designed to allow our guests to reach effortlessly into the past yet enjoy the latest comforts of today. Our passion is to deliver a quality that reflects and even redefines the surrounding neighborhood.
Each home has retained its individual character and personality which we have enhanced by adding special features that will make the experience feel like home, such as outdoor swimming pools, outdoor dining areas, library and cigar room. Each of these special features has been located in the most appropriate house based on a desire to retain their original floor plans.
To ensure the highest service standards each house will have its own butler. From preparing breakfast, organizing a day of sightseeing or finding that special gift, they see it as their role to make our guests’ stay both wonderfully memorable and completely relaxed. The only decision to make is how to explore and enjoy the locality, day or night.
Casas del XVI will offer an intimate experience that cannot be duplicated - as unique and interesting as the city that surrounds it.
