Happy Tuesday, y’all! We just returned from a long weekend getaway in the Dominican Republic! We stayed at Playa Grande Beach Club (as seen above) which had been at the tippy top of our travel wishlist for years! The spot is an absolute tropical paradise in the Dominican Republic, nestled in the heart of the jungle with beautiful beach front access. We are already daydreaming of when we can make a return trip!
The whimsical interiors (designed by Celerie Kemble) are beyond inspiring with all the curiosities, color, and pattern! One of our favorite features of the entire resort was the colorful hand-painted tiles - their playful energy was perfection! Oh, and we can’t forget to mention all the decadent textiles and patterns on the pillows! We stayed in a 3 bedroom bungalow and it was stocked with everything you could ever need for a restful vacation (including the most luxurious John Robshaw robes). There was truly no reason to need to leave the resort which made the trip the most relaxing.
Not to be overlooked, the exterior’s delicate architecture, private outdoor spaces, gingerbread trimmings, and all the touches of whimsy that pay homage to the lush surroundings of the Caribbean were stunning! And for all those animal lovers - the resident dogs that live at Playa Grande Beach Club are the absolute sweetest! You can browse more images of the beach club here, but fair warning it’s going to give you a major case of wanderlust! We’ve rounded up our favorite finds of the day and all of your summer weekend getaway essentials directly influenced by this magical space!
