About Kibayo

About Kibayo

Kibayo is a peaceful getaway hidden between a lush green lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean, located between Cabarete and Sosua in the North coast of the Dominican Republic. The location consists of a villa with a calming and earthy look and feel, where guests have the opportunity to stay amongst nature. A tropical front and backyard with swimming pool, bar/restaurant area, organic garden, lagoon entrance and a multifunctional garden cabana. Feel good, do good is our essence. We believe that we can reach this by providing a place where everybody has the opportunity to feel connected with themselves, others and the world around them.
