Dominican Republic

A Caribbean Dream

On this 6-night, 7-day fitness retreat, we’ll stay in a luxury 12-bedroom beachfront villa, with a huge tropical garden leading onto the white sands and crystal clear waters of one of the Caribbean’s best (and quietest!) beaches. The villa is located in the North Eastern part of the Dominican Republic, meaning we're well away from all the touristy hustle and bustle of Punta Cana.

With a beachfront pool and jacuzzi, ocean-views from every bedroom, a huge outdoor lounge and bar, and nestled in an area that has the highest concentration of coconut palm trees in the world, we couldn’t dream up a better base for a week of tropical workouts and adventures.

Day 1

Welcome To Paradise

Arrive anytime after 2 pm and settle into tropical paradise. Get to know your new friends by the pool and unwind with a mobility session to really relax. You're on holiday!

Day 2

Sweat and sunshine

Kick off the first full-day with a team workout and a big breakfast spread to refuel. Hit the beach before our guided recovery session and a Caribbean-inspired BBQ lunch. Chill poolside under the swaying palm trees with new friends and fresh cold coconuts, before sweat number 2.

Day 3

workouts and waves

Wake up for a salty morning of surfing, kayaking and SUP'ing! Kick back and relax with some guided recovery and tanning time, before we work up a sweat in our afternoon teams workout on the beach. In between all that, enjoy our chef-cooked delights and marvel at the beauty of the Dominican Republic.

Day 4

Sail and Snorkel

Begin the day with a sunrise workout, before we set sail for Boat Day. Lunch, drinks and tunes are served up on board, and you can swim, snorkel and explore tiny tropical islands til your hearts content! Keep an eye out for whales. We'll head back to our villa to wash off the salt before a magical sunset dinner.

Day 5

Surf and Massage

Kick off Day 5 with a workout, brekkie and more activities in the surf. Enjoy a chill afternoon of recovery with a stretch session, ice baths and beachfront massages.

Day 6

Fitness and Feasts

Wake up to our last full day together with workouts, salty adventures and plenty of time to soak up the rays with your new mates. As the sun begins to set on Day 6, there's one more chance to float in the ocean, drink in hand and great people by your side, whilst you watch the sky work its magic.

Day 7

One for the Memory Books

"THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE! I don’t even know where to start with my review. Hands down the best investment I have ever made. I truly believe that what you get with Salt Escapes is unique. I have been on other group exercise holidays before and met amazing people, but this was something else. There are so many little thoughtful added extras that make this trip perfect. It’s been a week since I returned, and I am still absolutely buzzing. I can’t wait to go on the next Escape."

"Fantastic week with top tier trainers, diverse individual and team-based work-outs along with wholesome/high-quality restaurant grade food to fuel you through the sessions (seconds encouraged). Plenty to do away from exercise (boat trips, downtime etc) and left feeling much fitter and stronger as well as surprisingly refreshed."

"I can’t put into words just how amazing Salt Escapes is! Mike & Amy have truly created something special, bringing together like-minded people for the most incredible experience.
I’ve done two trips (Zakynthos and Costa Rica) and am already planning trip number three! Salt Escapes is the perfect balance of adventure, fitness and fun. The team are so welcoming, the workouts are challenging, but, rewarding, and there is good balance of activity and downtime. If you’re even thinking about it, just do it!"

"Can not say enough wonderful things about Salt Escapes. I speak with my actions and am just finishing my second trip with them (there will definitely be a third). They do an incredible job curating the destinations, accommodations and food. Most importantly though, they build an amazing community. Their attention to detail is unmatched.  The best tour operator I have ever used."
