Dominican Republic

Zoëtry Agua & Paradisus Palma Real

Two very different resorts, both very luxurious.

Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana is one of the several Zoëtry resorts to introduce Art of Life® concept of Endless Privileges®. At Zoëtry there is no check in or check out time, bath amenities are by Bvlgari, and a complimentary massage is included in your room charge, your beach bag will be waiting for you and the staff is there to make sure your every wish is fulfilled. Gourmet dining features both spa cuisine and regular menu. Romance, tranquility, escape are the words that come to mind when talking about this resort. Ideal resort for fitness and wellness groups. Yoga classes are offered on the beach and in the studio several times a day. Just in case you get restless and feel like a night on the town, you can get a taxi (about $15 each way) and drive down (about 10 minutes) to Breathless resort and spa, where you can enjoy exchange privileges. Breathless has an extensive entertainment program, as well as a rooftop night club and 7 restaurants. My favorite room is the beachfront suite with it’s own plunge pool. The resort is located about an hour away from the Punta Cana airport in the area called Uvero Alto, which boasts gold sand and crystal clear waters.

Paradisus Palma Real is an institution in Punta Cana. It has always been THE RESORT TO GO TO in Punta Cana. Royal Service is the epitome of luxury. Located on the beautiful white sand Bavaro beach lined with palm trees, this is what everyone thinks of when they say Punta Cana. One of the restaurants is “Passion by Martin Berasategui” a AAA 4-Diamond restaurant. Chef Martin Berasategui is has 7 Michelin stars and is considered one of the top chefs in the world. For the golfers, Paradisus Palma Real includes unlimited free green fees at the “Cocotal Golf & Country Club”. They can handle any size Destination Wedding, corporate events and any kind of a luxury travel group. However, with Secrets Cap Cana under construction and heading for opening in 2016, it will be interesting to see if Paradisus Palma Real will be able to keep their top resort distinction.
