LOCATION: A 90 minute drive from Santo Domingo’s Las Americas Airport, River Whisper Retreat Farm is tucked away across the river and set upon fifty private acres of lush rainforest land. River Whisper Farm is cupped by verdant, tropical hills of pasture, cacao, banana and coconut trees. The call of doves echo across the farm while the river softly whispers throughout the warm days and cool mountain nights. We are at least a twenty minute drive from the closest town. The area is private, secure, peaceful and sacred.
GROUP FACILITIES: Your group will have full use of the facilities available at our gated, tropical farm. A carpeted meditation room surrounded by large screened windows, is complete with meditation cushions, stools, and silence. Our large yoga/movements hall is fully screened: Bursts of crimson ginger plants brush lightly across the screens to provide natural shade and the fragrant beauty of the tropical jungle.
DINING/MEALS: Our staff prepares all of your groups meals in our restaurant sized kitchen, next to the long dining hall available to you 24 hours a day. We partner with you ahead of time to plan a menu to your groups wishes – farm to table organic foods, vegan, gourmet local Dominican foods, juicing – there are many delicious, rejuvenating options available. (Alcoholic beverages are available upon request and are not included in the package price.)
ACCOMMODATIONS: There are single and double room and cottage options, with shared baths. A private cottage is available for your group leader and one guest. Rooms and cottages are clean, bright and simply decorated, with daily housekeeping, towels, and eco-friendly toiletries provided.
