The Art of Cigar Making – Puerto Plata Dominican Republic Episode 4

A spectacular 5 day lifetime trip with Davidoff Cigars in the Dominican Republic, from the Casa Colonial Resort and Spa, a boutique hotel designed for relaxation hidden in the Playa Dorada Complex, a popular tourist destination for Canadians and New Yorkers in the late 80s.

Our dazzling journey began with the gorgeous hotel rooms, relaxing jacuzzis, exquisite beach views and the path to a long sandy Caribbean beach. We enjoyed the exotic fine dining restaurants with a selection of Caribbean fusion dishes and delectable desserts, with a view of the mangrove jungle through a full glass wall.

puerto_plata_dominican_republic_231 and Viruousity Magazine also had the chance to meet the hotel Chili Italian young executive chef, Giancarlo Fiori who is bringing his European experience to the beaches of Santo Domingo. Chef Fiori prepared a delicious fresh crab tartar starter: five fresh layers of beans, tomato, avocado with crab, topped with a big crab slice. Before the mouthwatering starter, we enjoyed Dorado Ravioli, a balanced taste of dry white Mahi Mahi fish in homemade raviolis with ricotta cheese made from local cow milk, pesto and beans.

We would like to express our gratitude to the Davidoff family including Vincent, Christian, Suzy and Sara. The passion and hospitality mixed with a full, exciting program ensured total satisfaction. We learned quite a lot, enjoyed our time tremendously and lived another experience in the luxury world.


We hope you enjoyed the videos and exclusive photos from the Dominican Republic as well as the Art of Making Cigar experience.puerto_plata_dominican_republic_015
