La Romana was originally a major sugar-producing region before turning into one of the DR’s most coveted, luxurious beach destinations. Providing an ideal location for meetings, conventions, and events, La Romana is best known for Casa de Campo, a Leading Hotel of the World, offering one of the most upscale and complete golf resorts in the Caribbean. Whether newbie or experienced, players can experience multiple Pete Dye-designed golf courses here, teeing right along the sea. The adjacent Altos de Chavón, a replica of a Mediterranean village built over the Río Chavón, adds even more allure to the area with its stunning riverfront terraces, historical sights, restaurants, and shopping facilities.
Located just 25 minutes’ drive east of La Romana, the eco-adventure rich area of Bayahíbe was originally a picturesque fishing town. Today, it offers the perfect beach and ecotourism complement with adjacent Blue-Flag certified Dominicus Beach and its full-scale resorts, as well as Cotubanamá National Park, replete with outdoor activities–from cave exploration to offshore island hopping at Saona and Catalina.
The wide variety of accommodations in La Romana and Bayahíbe, ranging from boutique luxury to resorts, provide more than 4,000 hotel rooms for a maximum capacity of 750 delegates, ideal for medium-sized events. Unique venues also include the 5,000-seat Altos de Chavón Amphitheater, and the Chavón riverfront terrace, available for corporate events. Incentive planners can help craft activities to complement your program, such as team-building activities around golf and fishing tournaments, sand castle building, beach Olympics, or even a treasure hunt on Saona Island. The main gateway for international arrivals is La Romana International Airport (LRM), located 30 minutes’ drive from the city center. A two-hour drive east or north leads to additional leisure destinations in the DR.
