About the Property

9 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, Ocean & Mountain Views, fully catered & and services.

Nestled on a towering hillside overlooking the north coast of the Dominican Republic is a vacation destination that makes even your wildest dreams seem tame. Our Golden Dolphin estate is situated on hundred acres of private Caribbean paradise. It all adds up to one unparalleled, unforgettable getaway.
Our expansive estate offers everything you need for a truly exquisite escape. Exceptional service and amenities, a spectacular and secluded location, exciting activities both on-site and in the surrounding area and the most precious luxuries of all — total privacy and the freedom to do exactly as you wish.

Golden Dolphin Villa features two magnificent buildings. The Main villa features 17,000 square feet of living space and the pool house features an additional 5500 square feet of living space.
The two buildings are rented together, so you will never have other guests around you, to ensure your total privacy.

The estate is located in the unique, rural community of Cabrera on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, and offers visitors several of the islands most pristine beaches with a true Dominican charm.
You won’t find any megaresorts in Cabrera, but you will find plenty of natural wonders and activities to enjoy over the course of your visit. Cabrera itself is a rustic oceanfront village known for friendly locals who enjoy relaxed island living.

The Experience at Golden Dolphin Villa
When you stay at the Golden Dolphin Villa, our majestic property is only part of your experience. The other part is being treated like royalty.
During your stay, our entire staff is focused on one thing: creating a customized vacation experience that aligns perfectly with your desires.
Looking for adventure? Allow us to fill your days with exciting activities and excursions. Curious about the local culture? We will take you to explore the island’s hidden wonders and discover the locals’ cherished traditions. Perhaps all you wish for are a few days of relaxing indulgence. Your wish is our command.
Because the Golden Dolphin Villa is a completely private property, with no other guests on-site during your stay, our entire staff will be focused on the needs of your party. Your service staff includes:

Villa Concierge
Our Villa Concierge will serve as your primary point person in creating your dream vacation. Part planner, part coordinator, part chaperone, the concierge will be available to you around-the-clock to ensure that the villa, our staff, and your stay are living up to the highest standards.

Our housekeepers will keep your accommodations and gathering areas clean, welcoming and spectacular.
This is your special getaway. So go wherever you want to go. Do whatever you want to do. And don’t worry about a thing.

Wait staff
Our wait staff will attend every meal in the main Dining Room, and be available to serve your meals, snacks and drinks anywhere on site that you would like to enjoy them.

Team of gourmet chefs
Our team of gourmet chefs will prepare a daily feast of culinary delights. Prior to our arrival, our chefs will work with you to develop a delicious menu that fits your tastes. For your convenience, all meals and snacks are included in your all-inclusive meal plan.
As is customary with many high-end luxury vacation villas, Golden Dolphin Villa provides a mandatory meal plan that covers all main meals, snacks and evening treats during your stay.
Meals may be served restaurant-style or family-style buffet. You decide. And the menu options are as varied as the island allows.

Unlimited non-alcoholic and non-imported beverages, including fresh tropical juices, soft drinks, bottled water and mixers.
Unlimited local beer & local rom
Price USD 75 per adult per night, and 50% for children ages 3-12 years old and toddlers are free.

Alcoholic Beverages?
We offer a shopping service for our clients. Please provide a list of alcohol you want to have in the bars of the villa, and we will buy these for you, and you will just pay our cost price + 15% service charge.

Spacious and elegantly decorated with soft, supple leather furniture and handmade mahogany side seats, the Great Room is the ideal gathering place for your party. Grab a drink from the full service bar. Settle in by the hand-carved stone fireplace. Soon enough, the gorgeous ocean vistas will lure you outside to the spacious and shady terrace, where you will enjoy some of the most magnificent and unobstructed ocean views imaginable. At the right time of year you can even watch the humpback whales make their way to the Bay of Samana during their annual migration.

Envision a stunning, solid dining room table set with eighteen hand-carved mahogany chairs. A massive handmade wrought-iron chandelier hangs overhead. The aroma of mouth-watering cuisine wafts from the kitchen, where our executive chef is preparing a meticulous meal sure to delight even the most discerning palate. Whether our staff serves you restaurant style ore prepares a more relaxing buffet feast, dining at the Golden Dolphin is always a spectacular and delicious event.

The Pool Villa great room provides another spacious gathering destination nearer to the swimming pool yet with all of the features you expect in a luxury villa. This great room provides additional sweeping ocean views, overlooks the pool area, and offers satellite TV with a super sound system as well.

The pool villa also has a complete wrap around terrace offering the same shady resting places with sweeping vistas of the azure blue ocean waters and verdant green tropical forests. Located right by the swimming pool, the pool villa’s terraces are often the scene of lengthy luxurious massages followed by relaxed slumber from our guests. Does this sound like heaven or what?

The master bedroom of Golden Dolphin Villa will make any guest feel like the king of the jungle. Located on the top-most floor of the villa, the Lion Suite is exceptionally spacious and crowned with a massive king sized bed. Relax in luxury as you drink in the sweeping views of this tropical paradise.

Furnished with decadent king-sized beds and comfortable seating areas, these spacious and elegant accommodations will satisfy even the most discerning guests. Two suites face the tropical rain forests and verdant green hills, while the other two offer sweeping ocean views.

Named for one of the most popular felines in the Western Hemisphere, this elegant small suite offers twin beds and an en suite bath. Gorgeous views of the tropical forests and a perch overlooking the baseball diamond make this a perfect hideout for any kids in the group.

THE DOLPHIN SUITES (3) – Located at the Pool House
Each of the three Dolphin Suites features spacious luxury accommodations with en suite bathrooms, magnificent views, air conditioning and everything else you could want from a luxury retreat. Two of the suites offer queen sized beds and the largest offers a king sized bed. Rustic décor creates a more laid-back vibe yet feels every bit as luxurious as the Main Villa accommodations.

Every square inch of the Golden Dolphin Villa was designed to provide the ultimate in pleasure and comfort. Whether your group prefers an active vacation, an indulgent escape, or the perfect combination of both, these luxury amenities will satisfy your desires. And, like the rest of our villa, all of these offerings belong to you and only you for the duration of your stay.

In-Villa Spa
You and your guests can indulge in a blissful spa experience without ever leaving our grounds. Simply escape to the private spa suite located right inside the Golden Dolphin Villa, where you can choose from a variety of services to pamper the soul and enliven the spirit.

Palmera Villas

Year Purchased: 2001

About: My name is Anders Bogebjerg, and I am the promotions and sales manager for Golden Dolphin Villa. I am a professional (PGA) golf player and former European Junior Champion from Denmark. Before moving to Punta Cana, I was playing golf professionally in Scandinavia and Europe at Challenge Tour level. From 2000 I began working in the traveling industry every winter season for Danish traveling agencies as a golf pro, representative and destination manager. In 2002 my travels took me to the Dominican Republic, where I settled down and took over Palmera Travel together with my wife, Rawnie Hansen. We have been living in Punta Cana full time since 2005, where we specialize in customizing vacation packages for travelers from around the world.

Why Maria Trinidad Sanchez, Dominican Republic:
Golden Dolphin Villa is one of the most breathtaking villas I have ever seen. Golden Dolphin villa is the perfect example of a great man's vision to create a legacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The villa features 180degree ocean views as it is elevated 1000ft above sea level on a mountain top. The chefs and wait staff of the villa truly makes your wildest fantasies come true.
