Unplug and unwind your mind, body, and soul at Natura Cabana Boutique Hotel & Spa.
Welcome to the place where the only thing you are asked of is to unplug and disconnect from the noise of your everyday life and to allow the hotel staff to do the rest. A place where as soon as you step a foot in it, you feel like you’re being welcomed home by the warm cozy breeze of the exotic Caribbean jungle.
We mention the word “home” because this is exactly what it has been for the hotel owners, a Chilean couple and their four daughters. When they vacationed to the Dominican Republic in 1997 they fell so in love with the beach town of Cabarete that they immediately decided to turn it into their permanent residence. It wasn’t long before they invited friends and family over to share their little private paradise.
Before they knew it, people from all over the world had learned through word of mouth about this “adventurous family’s brilliant idea” and their home started growing into an eco-lodge. One cabana morphed into two, then three, and so on. Today, Natura Cabana Boutique Hotel & Spa is a magnificent beachfront retreat of 12 bungalows that overlook a pristine beach and is open to anyone who is looking to reconnect with nature and their inner selves.
Disconnect from the moment you arrive
If you arrive feeling a little numb from your flight into Puerto Plata, a yoga class at The Yoga Temple will instantly help you unwind and exhale all your worries away. This space is considered one of the treasures of the property, not only because of its stunning oceanfront location, but also because the renewal experiences it provides are a true representation of what the hotel is really about.
Forget any of the meditation audios you have listened to before, unplug completely. The sound of the actual ocean and singing birds every morning will be the perfect calming therapy to start your day. While you continue your journey of revitalization with a walk through the buddha path and into the organic garden, make sure to look up and amaze yourself with the beautiful palm trees that surround the hotel.
During your walk through the magical jungle, you might spot a beautiful pink bungalow, the hotel’s Attabeyra Spa, named after the Water God of the Taino Indians. Don’t miss our healing treatments for yet another extraordinary and relaxing experience that will melt your stress away and reinvigorate your mind, body, and soul.
Whether you’ve been enjoying some quiet time catching up with a book in your own private terrace, or jumping off the stunning waterfalls of Puerto Plata, you can always refuel either at Karaya or Natura, the two open-air restaurants that look out to the unspoiled beach and the sea. They both offer deliciously balanced and nutritious meals that incorporate as many ingredients as possible from our organic vegetable and herbs in our garden.
Family at its core
And so, even though Natura Cabana has been visited and raved about by countless guests all around the world, it preserves the touch that made it special in the first place: family. The mother is still involved in the day-to-day operations and makes sure every detail of the property is in perfect shape. The daughters know their guests by name and help them with anything they need, from taking pictures to personalizing each one of their refreshments and smoothies. For guests with little ones, the very same tree house that was built for the girls when they were young is still intact for endless entertainment.
Going back to basics has never been more in style, so come and check it out for yourself.
