Casa de Campo Resort & Villas in the Dominican Republic is giving guests the chance to “walk their vacation walk” in the footsteps of its famous guests. The new “In Your Shoes” experience will have vacationers shadowing the routines, over-the-top treatment and other special requests that these guests of note have enjoyed.
The resorts famous guest list has included Jay-Z and Beyoncé, the Kardashians, Derek Jeter, Drake, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Eric Decker, Oscar de la Renta, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jordan, Mark Anthony, former U.S. Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, The Bachelorette and Jim Clark.
Priced starting from $350,000, the villa stay comes with a custom chest of designer shoes to ensure guests are both literally and figuratively following in the footsteps of the A-list crowd. While the footwear selection will be customized prior to arrival based on preferences, sizing and gender, think CHANEL sandals, Louboutin wedges and Gianvito Rossi alligator pumps. "In Your Shoes" includes:
