About Kibayo

Discover the perfect retreat venue in Cabarete, situated on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic. Our exceptional setting comprises two distinct properties:


  • The initial property features a villa with a serene atmosphere and a spacious garden (600m2/2000ft). It is available for individual room rentals as well as complete venue rental.
  • The second property is an exclusive, gated tropical garden covering 1500m2/5000ft, nestled beside a lagoon within the bounds of the El Choco National Park. 

Kibayo’s location is truly exceptional, because it is situated alongside the beautiful National Park El Choco, providing a world of nature for hiking, mountain biking, exploring fresh water lagoons, and caves. Additionally, we are conveniently located just a 10-minute walk from the famous Kite Beach and a 10-minute drive from Encuentro Surf Beach. So, get ready to immerse yourself in nature, while remaining close to town for nightlife activities.


The dynamic space is ideal for wellness, yoga, watersport, small businesses, families and couples on retreat. It’s also suitable for intimate events like one-day retreats, workshops, photoshoots, baby showers, and other special occasions. 


The garden can host up to 40 guests. The beautiful villa offers lodging for up to 16 guests, with six rooms available.
