In the Dominican Republic, Casa Bonita offers spa packages

Casa Bonita is the only place I've ever been where you can get a massage or wrap with the massage table set up in a river.
By Terri Colby

Set in a jungle overlooking the Caribbean Sea, the Dominican Republic's Tanama Eco Spa at Casa Bonita, is a spa to remember.

It's the only place I've ever been where you can get spa treatments with your table perched in an actual river. The experience is truly organic, listening to birds and gurgling water, watching butterflies overhead.

The tropical Lodge is offering a Spa Sampler for eco-conscious travelers seeking an organic spa experience. The packages offer guests a 30-minute taste of a few of Tanama's most popular, signature treatments during a relaxing stay in one of Casa Bonita's newly renovated suites.

For $709, guess will get three nights in a deluxe suite, daily breakfast and the choice of one sampler of three, 30-minute treatments.

From Head to Toe

• TAINO RELAXING BATH - Enjoy a relaxing steam inside the Dominican Republic's only Temazcal. Relish a coco and noni massage and scalp treatment during an aromatherapy session with seasonal local herbs.

• TROPICAL FOOT BATH - Indulge in a foot bath during which your feet are submerged in an exquisite combination of aromatic salts, continue with a mild exfoliation and conclude with a tropical foot mask utilizing ingredients including coconut, bamboo and white tea.

• TROPICAL FACIAL - Nourish and rejuvenate your skin as you enjoy a facial consisting of the perfect combination of highly moisturizing antioxidants including green tea, aloe vera, honey, calendula mint extract and chamomile.

Peaceful Paradise

• WARM MUD MASSAGE - Pamper yourself with this cleansing massage where chocolate mud and seaweed is used and then removed in a soothing bath of flowers and herbs.

• TROPICAL FACIAL OR ECO MAN FACIAL - Your choice of Tanama's signature his and her facials. Rejuvenate your visage and relish renewed freshness and brightness after this cleansing and balancing ritual.

Taxes are an additional 28 percent. The packages are available for stays through Dec. 21, and are subject to availability. Rates are based on 1 or 2 adults and extra nights are available. Only one Spa Sampler is included per room but guests may add another for a second person for only $178. This package cannot be combined with any other offers.
