A boutique luxury boutique hotel has expanded in the heart of Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone.

The new Casa Antilliana is the latest boutique home by the Casas del XVI hotel in the storied old city of the Dominican Republic’s capital.

The hotel has a total of 16 rooms, offering guests a butler and concierge service and the brand’s signature old world-modern fusion design.

Casa Antilliana has two master suites and one double bedroom facing an interior garden anchored by a plunge pool.

Casas del XVI is a series of charmingly restored homes in the Colonial Zone, each with a different theme, all dating back to the 16th century.

“In designing this house, I used a white background with splashes of green sprinkled throughout the décor to convey a tropical, colonial Antillean theme, which is inspired by the Caribbean islands surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico,” says Patricia Reid, interior designer for Casas del XVI. “The original colonial masonry especially the white portico framing the door at the entrance, as well as an antique well nestled in the wall have been preserved to transport guests to a long-lost era.”

Every house is attended by its own private mayordomo, with an individual design and floor plan.

Santo Domingo’s Colonial Zone has become one of the Caribbean’s up-and-coming destinations, thanks to an alluring blend of fascinating architecture, a burgeoning art scene and excellent nightlife.
