I spent three days at the beautiful grounds of Ki-Ra. I was on a work trip which involves high levels of stress. It was such a nice reward to wake up in such a peaceful sanctuary. From the organic cooking, to the inspiring conversation, it was such a nice change from your average hotel stay. If you want to feel rejuvenated, this is your spot. I feel like I made life long friends while staying in this Paradise.

I almost don't want to write this review cause i'd love to keep the Ki-Ra secret for myself! But such good things are meant to be shared!
Do yourself a favor and go relax in a completely holistic environment where nothing is ordinary and everything is extraordinary! Have breakfast in a tower overlooking the ocean, gift yourself to massages and ayurvedic treats. Swim in a crystal clear ocean and come out of the water thru a blowhole on a subterranean beach. If you're not up for the adventure just relax in the salt water pool and read your book in the hammock of your choosing. Or do yoga, play with the dogs or with Ginger, the cat.. or not! Go explore on a bike ride or boat ride.. or not! Enjoy the starry night alongside a bonfire... Go on a romantic escapade with your significant other or go by yourself on one of the wonderful retreats that are held there every month!
Ki-Ra is your choice to enjoy life in joy! If you don't, I'll do it for you! =)

I just got back from my vacation at Ki-ra and had the most amazing time! I knew it was going to be incredible but it was even more than I imagined it would be! I went with one of my closest friends and we had the perfect mix of fun, relaxation, sun, adventure, great food, spa, and health and wellness.
Our room was beautiful and chic and we woke up every morning to the most AMAZING view. The pool is filled with the freshest and cleanest salt water which is filtered through coral. It was the first time I experienced that and it felt so refreshing and naturally rejuvenating. Ki-ra is an exquisite place. You walk among lush tropical trees and gardens, have a breathtaking view of the Caribbean ocean, and can have your pick of the many comfortable hammocks that are spread about.
Which brings me to one of the most magical parts about Ki-ra, the hosts. They are so friendly, attentive, generous, and hospitable. They go out of their way to make sure you have all that you need during your stay. They prepare the most delicious healthy food all day and most of the ingredients are so fresh they are grown right there!
You can attend one of the wonderful retreats at Ki-ra or you can simply create your own experience. Some days we relaxed, swam and laid by the pool, had incredible massages and spa treatments, ate great food and drank delicious fresh cocktails. Other days we went to some of the beautiful nearby beaches like Minitas or 3 Beaches. One of my favorite days our hosts arranged for us to take a gorgeous yacht to Isla Saona where we spent the day on the boat lounging and swimming in the ocean. If you're looking for fun nights out there are also many great options. One night we had dinner and drinks in Bayahibe where there are lots of restaurants and bars. Our last night we went to la marina in Casa De Campo and had amazing food and cocktails at a chic restaurant on the water.
There really is something for everyone at Ki-ra. I truly had one of the best vacations I've ever had. Definitely go and experience it for yourself!

Ki-Ra is the Dominican Republic's best kept secret! This Oceanfront retreat can fulfill all of your vacation needs. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a bachelor party weekend, a wedding, or a healing getaway with spa treatments and massage, Ki-Ra has got what you need. I recently visited their location at Boca Chauvon and ate the most deliciously healing food which was carefully curated with local fresh ingredients, prepared with love and impeccable presentation. The massages were some of the best that I've ever had at any Spa or Wellness Center from across the globe. An afternoon at Ki-Ra can easily be spent enjoying their coral filtered saltwater swimming pool, taking a yoga class overlooking the Caribbean Sea, sailing on a yacht to Isla Saona, or having a picnic lunch at one of the nearby beaches. At sunset, you can retreat to the top of the Ki-Ra Tower and enjoy a classic cocktail with freshly squeezed juice, overlooking a 360 degree view of 25 acres of land and miles of ocean while engaging in conversation with your vacation party and your fabulous hosts at Ki-Ra. While I was there, I was lucky enough to get a tour of their Casa De Campo location where they were hosting a wedding for the weekend! Seeing this luxury oceanfront villa transformed to host the party of the century with full lighting and sound production was truly a dream come true for the wedding party. For those looking for a wellness weekend to recuperate from busy city life, you can get a health consultation with their on-site homeopathic doctor who can prescribe healing remedies, and herbal treatments for your stay, including: reflexology, massage, herbal colon treatments, detoxifying mud masks, and specific dietary recommendations. They also offer yoga workshops and health retreats as well as the opportunity to rent the space for your own event. I stayed for 5 days and cannot wait togo back! Maybe next time I'll have a family reunion, a ladies weekend, or maybe even my wedding!
