Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana
Located along Uvero Alto Beach, the Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana is about 20 miles north-west of the main resort strip of Bávaro. Despite being an hour away by car from Punta Cana International Airport, the resort is a popular destination for honeymooners, who desire the seclusion. The hotel’s 96 cane-thatched suites feature private terraces, deep soaker tubs and Bvlgari bath amenities. And if the 400 yards of private beach aren’t enough to keep you entertained, the Zoëtry Endless Privileges program offers guests the opportunity to participate in activities such as spa treatments and guided tours of the surrounding cultural landmarks.
