“MAGIC PLACE, GORGEUS BEYOND WORDS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

This place is so beautiful, is relaxing, ideal if you are looking to relax, decompress and have some quality time. Everything is surrounded by nature, individual bungalows where you have total privacy, just listening to the sound of waves and nature. All the personnel is fantastic, starting with Jairo at the front desk who was so helpful and very accommodating, Celeste at the spa gave us a massage super relaxing and very professional, Jesus and Arnulfo at the restaurant were so nice, super attentive, we were celebrating my birthday and they brought me a super nice plate of different desserts and sang me happy birthday, Jesus was so sweet and detailed, the food was super delicious and the chef came to the table to greet us, it was a wonderful experience, the breakfast was fresh, prepared at the moment, everything fantastic, will definitely go back there, I recommend at night going to the beach, sit in a chaise lounge and relax looking and listening at the waves and have something to drink while enjoying the view, be mindful of the sea, is very rough, especially if you are not an expert swimmer. there is no ac in the room nor tv, but that is part of the attractive of the place, is all very natural very eco friendly

Room Tip: ask for the bungalows Coral or Piedra , we stayed in laja and it was nice too

How lucky we were to find Natura Cabana. In the DR visiting family and was going to check out Yoga classes at Natura Cabana for the day. Was captured by the tranquil beauty of the beach, friendliness of the staff, charming room, sanctuary of the yoga hut, fresh flavor of the food, and ended up staying for two nights. Our 90 minute yoga classes were fantastic and they are offered two times a day, which was a tremendous bonus! This was clearly the highlight of our trip to the Domincan Republic. Natura Cabana is a hidden get a way that I highly recommend anyone looking for peace of mind, rejuvination, and ultimate relaxation. We will definitley be back! Thank you Natura Cabana!!!

If you are looking to relax, take life slowly, and be absorbed in beautiful nature this is the place. Total peace and quiet. The cabanas are gorgeous, mush more luxurious than we expected for the very reasonable price. The beach is stunning - miles of sand, very few other people. The two restaurants serve great food all day long. We went for 7 days and didn't leave the property. Perfect!

This resort is a perfect combination of rustic and adorable. I want my comforts without all the crowds, super buffets and shiny marble and Natura Cabana was made to order. You get so much value for the the affordable rates. I loved that the resort only has 10 cabanas so even at full capacity there are no crowds or lines. The rooms were spacious and comfy. My cabana Laja had a stone bathroom, balcony with love seat and swing, very comfortable bed and pillows, a safe and a mini fridge. One drawback - there is no hot water without turning on a switch and waiting for the water to heat up for at least 15 minutes. This is fine for 1 person but there is not enough hot water for two without an additional 15 minutes warm up. Actually, the cold water is not that cold so I took a shower without washing my hair and was not too cold. The massage services were fantastic. The food was good and fresh and very reasonable...however the water is not drinkable anywhere on the island so you must buy bottled. This was VERY expensive - about $5 a bottle at the resort so I walked to a nearby mini mart and got water for $1...and they delivered more a couple of days later. The beach is clean, private and lovely...just steps away. The staff was friendly and accommodating, calling you by name. I wanted a small, safe and quiet vaca to veg and that's exactly what Natura Cabana offered. PERFECT!

If you are looking for peaceful place to zen out, you will find it here. This is not one of those sterile, impersonal resort places. It is all built by hand from local materials with arts and craft touches everywhere, set on grounds that have been nurtured and matured with attention to details from the quiet beach to the palm tree with orchids growing in bark planters to the pond in front of the yoga temple. Our second floor balcony may as well have been a tree house in some jungle with a few scattered thatched roofs and glimpses of the ocean through the trees. We had planned to do some excursions but the setting was so alluring we had trouble breaking away until we finally admitted that we should just relax, something we discovered we had never really done before. We disconnected, and reconnected with ourselves and each other.

We finally took an evening to do the pueblo of Cabarete where we had a delightful meal at La Terrasse but were happy to get back to our cabana. We will do a couple of excursions next time - there's a lot of things to do in the area from nightlife to trails to cultural and architectural excursions and even a personalized cocoa/coffee farm tour an hour or two inland - and there will definitely be a next time. We met people from the US, England and Europe and the staff became acquaintances and friends that we so look forward to seeing again. We got to connect a bit with people that live just down the road and a peek into their culture and lifestyles in ways that "tourist traps" can never compete with.

Everything everywhere was clean, the food was good, the beach was quiet with none of the usual crowd, the water wonderful, and the yoga sessions and tranquility fulfilling. There are no phones, TV, air conditioning, or even clocks - you won't need them. The Internet was a little intermittent throughout the day, but I hope they don't fix it; it was so good to have but even better to learn to let it go because that was part of learning to disconnect.

Do we recommend this place? Oh, yeah!

Room Tip: Every cabana is completely different and set in semi-private groupings.

Just got back from a "So Sick of Winter" vacation to Cabarete, DR. My sister and I stayed at Natura Cabana and absolutely loved it. It strikes me as the middle ground between an expensive all-inclusive resort and a nature/yoga retreat. The grounds are beautiful; each staff member that we interacted with was kind, competent, and sincerely friendly. Our cabana, Laja, was an elevated hut with two comfortable beds, a mini fridge, and a really cute, open design bath. Each cabana is different and several can accommodate larger families. It's clear that they are earnest about sparing the environment and they've incorporated a natural design into every element from the grounds to the furniture. The food was yummy. The dinner chef was excellent. The beach is beautiful. This place is perfect for people who want total relaxation and don't need lots of activities, attractions, and extras. One of my favorite places ever!!

Room Tip: Ask for an elevated cabana if you have privacy issues. The walkways sometimes wind a bit closely pas...

Natura Cabana is an eco lodge paradise nestled right along the surf beach of Cabarete. We were able to walk down the beautiful coastline to go surfing and were only 5 km from Cabarete. Natura Cabana has great food, amazing lodging, yoga and massage. They go the extra mile to make a great experience for their customers.

Room Tip: Recommend renting a moto from Cabarete so that you can easily come and go from town.
