I’m always on the lookout for boutique resorts and all inclusives offering a romantic vacation or honeymoon. So when I discovered Zoetry Agua in Punta Cana I was excited about the combination of luxurious accommodations, outstanding service and gourmet dining. And with its powdery sand beach, beautiful pool and lush tropical gardens Zoetry offers an exotic getaway, reminiscent of the South Pacific islands, but only hours from home.
The Zoetry Agua experience is unusual, or should I say exceptional, from beginning to end. There are no set check in or check out times so your vacation starts when you arrive. It’s a small resort and buildings are only 1 or 2 stories high with thatched roofs you’d see in Tahiti and Bora Bora and vine covered elevated wooden walkways you’d find in Robinson Crusoe’s treehouse.
Everything at Zoetry is included and goes far beyond the typical all inclusive resort. You’ll find a basket of fruit in your room plus a bottle of champagne which will be replenished daily upon request, some excellent local rum, stocked minibar, free laundry service, room service, WIFI and other thoughtful amenities are all included at no extra cost.
Guest rooms are spacious and elegant with gleaming dark wood floors and Balinese inspired furnishings and décor. 2nd floor rooms have vaulted beamed ceilings and on the ground floor, you have a choice of garden, swim up or oceanfront rooms with private swimming pool. Beds are ultra comfy with high thread count sheets and the nightly turn down service includes a lightly scented pillow spray to set the mood for rest or romance.
Zoetry’s luxurious and frankly sexy bathrooms feature rock wrapped soaking tubs surrounded by scented candles, walk in rain showers, an array of Bvlgari bath products, fluffy towels and bathrobes, dual sinks with make up mirror and separate area for toilet and bidet. Every guest room also has an expansive furnished deck or patio with rock accented table suitable for private al fresco dining plus chaise lounge and chairs for reading or napping in the balmy breeze.
The swimming pool at Zoetry wanders like a river past swimup rooms, restaurants and gardens before spilling into a larger pool area with an infinity edge and lovely ocean view. Along it’s meandering path are numerous beach beds, baskets filled with towels and shaded living areas to enjoy a quiet conversation or book. The beach is a treat with its wide expanse of white sand, miles for walking or horseback riding (another special inclusion), palapas for shade and bar service that anticipated my “need” for a freshened drink before I’d finished my first.
Three restaurants offer casual meals and gourmet dining with an emphasis on healthy preparation and fresh ingredients. In addition there is a coffee shop with delicious pastries and desserts to tempt you from being too good. Again all included in the room rate.
Zoetry Agua is a quiet resort and most guests enjoy the opportunity to relax, unwind and recharge, but activities such as snorkeling, sailing, yoga and volleyball are available if the mood strikes. There is a spa pool with tranquil Zen garden, sauna, steam, bubble beds, Jacuzzi and waterfall treatments (all complimentary) and spa treatments such as massage and wraps at extra charge. Children are allowed but there is little reason for them to be there so the ambiance is perfect for an exotic tropical honeymoon or get away from it all adult vacation.
Throughout the year there are specials with free and reduced nights, so please call me at 425 821-3100, email email@example.com or Request a Quote if you’re planning a Caribbean vacation.
