Floor-to-ceiling windows display expansive blue waters. You swim up to the tiki bar and order an exotic concoction. Your personal massage includes a view of the wandering mountains. Sounds like a Mediterranean escape, right? Not exactly.
At D’Monaco in Ridgedale, Missouri, you don’t have to cross the ocean to experience a relaxing Mediterranean getaway. Featuring luxurious villas, a bevy of modern amenities, and an idyllic Ozarks setting, this secluded vacation spot brings the Mediterranean to the Midwest.
The pampering begins inside your luxurious lodging, a spacious Mediterranean-style villa. Ranging in size from 1,660 to 3,200 square feet, these sprawling villas exude Old World European charm with soaring ceilings and walls of windows that offer breathtaking views of Table Rock Lake.
Continuing with the “large” theme, king suites and king beds offer the royal treatment while private bathrooms and walk-in showers make each bedroom your personal sanctuary. The state-of-the-art kitchens feature modern appliances for those with big appetites. For some fresh air, the living rooms open to private verandahs with soothing hot tubs.
If you ever decide to leave your private oasis, relaxation awaits just outside your room. Get your feet wet in the sparkling outdoor swimming pool and get your palate wet at the swim-up tiki bar and lounge. More water-based fun isn’t far, as you can reserve a variety of watercraft, which can await at the private dock.
For those who prefer to stay dry, catch a tan on the beach sand sunning area or toast marshmallows over the lakefront fire pit. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stop by the onsite restaurant for some delicious cuisine. Everything you need for the perfect vacation is just a stone’s throw away.
“We want people to enjoy a relaxing, totally contained experience where everything is at their fingertips,” D’Monaco’s staff said.
Even before you arrive, you can reserve your relaxation. Request a rejuvenating massage to melt away your stress, a limousine to take you out for a night on the town, or a personal shopper to pick out all your favorite foods prior to your arrival.
Those who wish to venture off-site will find excitement taking in a show in Branson, exploring the shores of Table Rock Lake, or hiking through the majestic Ozark Mountains. Event planners are more than happy to find the activities you’ve been searching for.
Though nowhere near a sea, D’Monaco’s combination of spacious villas, luxurious amenities, and inspiring lakeside scenery brings the Mediterranean to Missouri.
