About the property

Modern Luxury 5 Bedroom Villa, With Butler, Maid, 2 Golf Carts & Private Pool

La Palapa

Welcome to La Palapa, a gorgeous and exiting modern villa that vibrantly combines European elegance with Caribbean flair.

La Palapa is located inside the private and exclusive gated community of Puntacana Resort & Club home to celebrities such as Oscar de la Renta, Julio Iglesias and Mikhail Baryshnikov, and just a stone-throw from Punta Cana International Airport.

The entrance to La Palapa is very clean and minimalist, but as soon as you enter the wooden, swinging front door, you'll instantly get a warm and tropical welcome.

At the heart of La Palapa you'll find the lush, beautiful garden with palm trees and white stone pathways that gives this villa a truly zen atmosphere. The villa has an open design from the front entrance all the way through the spacious terrace, pool area and garden.

La Palapa has 5 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Upstairs you'll find the master bedroom with a king bed and a big rooftop terrace overlooking the garden, pool and golf course.

The second bedroom also has a king size bed and really big windows to let in a lot of natural light. The third bedroom has three single/twin beds and vibrant colors.

Downstairs you'll find another bedroom with queen size bed and its own private patio oasis. The last bedroom has four single beds and soothing blue and white decor.

The kitchen and dining room are connected on one side of the villa with view of the pool. On the opposite side is the TV-room, with comfortable seating and floor to ceiling windows, giving you the feeling if being outdoors even if you're really indoors.

The terrace and garden area offer an incredible space for lounging, dining, relaxing and entertaining. It's a very flexible and comfortable space that instantly invites you to spend most of your time at La Palapa.

To get around the resort, e.g to go to the beach, golf courses, ecological reserve or marina, you'll have two 4-passenger golf carts included in the villa rental. The resort really offers you plenty of places to go and have a good time day or night.

All you have to do us relax and enjoy. La Palapa comes with two live-in staff who will pamper you during your stay. If you want to spic up the experience even more, then you can also hire a personal chef for your stay so you don't have to worry about cooking.


Once you book Villa La Palapa, our in-house concierge will be at your service to assist you in planning your stay from A to Z. You may choose these additional services at your convenience (all services are subject to availability and extra charges, i.e. they are not included in the rental price):

About Anders Bogebjerg

My name is Anders Bogebjerg, and I am the property manager of Villa La Palapa. 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. In 2008 we started managing luxury vacation properties, which is where our focus currently lies.

Anders Bogebjerg purchased this villa in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa La Palapa. It is a very nice house located built on a high end golf course. There is a great pool in the backyard. Access to the beach is possible at a beach club which is located 1.6 km from the house but which can be easily accessed by using the 2 golf carts which are provided with the house.

Beautiful and immaculately kept!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience upon landing in Punta Cana no problems at all at the airport. Upon arrival to the Villa, Irving, Melania, and Steig greeted us graciously. The Villa is beautiful "the pictures" really don't do it justice. Very open and airy and super comfy with all the conveniences of home. We enjoyed the provided golf carts to get around the community in. The spa, restaurant and beach bar were wonderful and the staff there treated us like royalty. We were traveling with another family and never felt cramped at all. The ping pong table and basketball court was a plus for the kids. This was one of our top family and friend vacations. We will be back!

Fantastic vacation - too short! :)

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Villa Palapa during our stay week after Christmas. Melania and Irving were amazing! Stig was fantastic too with checking in all was well daily and completing grocery shopping, even last minute. The villa is spacious and well appointed and very comfortable - Melania and Irving made it perfect! Whatever we needed, they were on hand yet gave us the space and feeling the place was ours alone when needed. Very much enjoyed the chef service as well - food was delicious and always on time. It was also great to have the golf carts handy for our family as we explored the resort further and for golf. The location of the villa is perfect - lots of privacy with hedges, and with a lovely view of the golf course. The kids loved the basketball court and ping pong table - played lots! Thank you Melanie, Irving and Stig - you truly made our first family vacation in Punta Cana a most memorable one we will always cherish! We hope to be back before you know it! :)

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful family holiday at Villa La Palapa!!!! We had our 3 daughters , their husbands and our 3 grandchildren with us and everyone enjoyed the villa , the super food, service and surroundings. The guys played golf one day, we all visited Altos de Chavon, we played tennis twice and visited the stunning lagoons at the Ecological center. Most of all, the wonderful meals made by Melanie and super drinks made by Irwin made our stay super and care free. The villa is spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and has a Zen like quality. We all enjoyed the pool, garden and table-tennis!!! We will return as this was one of our most memorable vacations!!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Gillian, Thank you for your kind review of Villa La Palapa and the staff. I’m happy you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return. I just wanted to clarify (for the sake of future guests and reservations) that Melanie isn’t really a cook – she is the maid. But, as you also write, she cooks really delicious meals and can help guests if necessary. Best regards, Anders.

In the words of my group that went 'Amazing'! The photos don't do this place justice. The staff was unbelievably helpful and courteous. Melanie/Irving & Stig : Thumbs up on making this a great experience for us. We enjoyed every bit of the accommodations and hospitality. Actually wishing we would have stayed longer on the last day. (Also our booking and communication back/forth and promptness was appreciated)

One thing I would ask ownership, ensure folks have group passes to the beach/other resort areas for venturing out. The folks at the Golf Resort & Westin were accommodating but made it difficult for us to enter.

Owner's Response: Hi Marquis, thank you for your review. We’re happy you had an amazing time at La Palapa. Also, thank you for your feedback about the access to the Westin, which is in fact not “included” or permitted as the hotel’s facilities are only for guests staying at the Westin. We do apologize if we weren’t 100% clear about this or if it was somehow miscommunicated from our side. We have taken your comment into our consideration and have modified our written communication so there’s no misunderstanding for any future guests. Best regards, Anders.

Rented this Villa with 13 friends and it was absolutely perfect! Slept all 13 people comfortably. Only 2 people had to share a king bed. Definitely recommend getting the Chef, it ended up being extremely cost effective and the food was fantastic! Our grocery bill at the end of 4 days ended up only being $93 per person. We didn't drink their alcohol, we bought everything at Duty Free when we arrived. We didn't realize that there were like 4 different resorts all within our gated community until we arrived, so the golf carts were so much fun to ride around to the different resorts in the neighborhood and to beach. Had we just stayed at one of the resorts we wouldn't have had that and wouldn't have been able to see as much because everything is pretty spread out. The Butler and Maid were fantastic and they were so sweet. Would recommend this Villa to any family or large group of friends looking to get away. You wont regret it!!!!
