At Villa Blanca.

Earlier this month Palmera Villas had the unique pleasure of hosting a group of US travel/luxury/lifestyle media to a cocktail party at Villa Blanca followed by a fantastic dinner at Lake View Villa.

The group was a mix of bloggers, photographers, journalists and representatives from the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Tourism. All had traveled to the Dominican Republic to explore the finer things that this destination has to offer.

Chef Junior had prepared a delicious variety of hors d’oeuvres at Villa Blanca for the group to enjoy while they toured the property and hung out by the pool.

Chef Beltran (the resident chef at Lake View Villa @beltran7377) served a spectacular 3-course dinner on the terrace at Lake View Villa and gave everyone a truly wonderful culinary experience! Lots of “ooohs”, “ahhhs” and “mmms” were heard around the dinner table and photos were taken in abundance.
