Bottom Line

The Zoetry Agua is one of the most luxurious and tranquil all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic. Catering towards couples, the resort boasts an uncrowded white-sand beach, sleek, spacious suites, a pristine pool, and one of the Dominican Republic’s top spas. Included amenities -- yoga classes, laundry services, top-shelf liquor, and even a horseback riding session -- are plentiful, but a difficult-to-reach location and no kids’ club make it less suited for families. But that’s just what makes it an ideal choice for those seeking a romantic and relaxing getaway.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

This pristine, peaceful resort caters to couples.

Upon arriving at the Zoetry Agua, many guests assume it is an adult-only property. In fact, the resort accepts guests of all ages, but non-discounted rates for children and a lack of kid-friendly amenities -- such as a kids’ club and a children’s pool -- means that almost all guests are couples. As a result, the property has an extremely tranquil vibe. The lush grounds, contemporary common spaces, and pristine pools are rarely crowded, and the private beach is equally peaceful -- lacking the loud music and activities of many all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic.

The property has four lovely restaurants as well as bars by the pool, beach, and in the lobby, but they are decidedly calm, and the Zoetry Agua does not offer the nightly entertainment that some nearby resorts do. Those looking for a slightly livelier -- but still upscale -- scene may consider the Breathless Punta Cana or the Dreams Punta Cana, both of which are about 10 minutes down the road.

 Location

Agua is located in a rural area, along a bumpy road on the northern edge of Punta Cana.

The Zoetry Agua's remote location makes it extremely peaceful and relaxing -- once you've arrived. But the hour drive from the Punta Cana Airport (about $70 USD in a taxi) along a bumpy road is not the most pleasant.

There’s nothing in the surrounding area but gleaming, freshly built resorts. The upscale Sivory Punta Cana resort is to the north, while the Excellence Punta Cana is a bit farther south down the road. Breathless Punta Cana and Dreams Punta Cana, also lovely luxury resorts that are a bit livelier than the Zoetry Aqua, are just about 10 minutes down the road.

 Rooms

Gorgeous, spacious suites have sleek bathrooms and furnished balconies or terraces.

Rooms at this Zoetry are absolutely gorgeous, and feature upscale beach decor; picture dark wood furniture, bright local artwork, and pretty bamboo and straw accents. Plush beds with crisp white linens sit in the center of the bedroom and face the French doors. which in turn open up to furnished patios or balconies with views of either the lush grounds or the ocean. Bedrooms also have large desks -- where guests can find their welcome bottle of rum and fruit -- as well as modern amenities such as large flat-screen TVs with DVD players, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi.

Bathrooms are equally sleek and sexy. Deep stone soaking tubs, double vanities, rainfall showerheads, luxury toiletries, and plush robes and slippers can be found in all bathrooms. All rooms also feature fully stocked mini bars (which are refreshed daily), daily deliveries of sparkling wine and fruit, three-times daily housekeeping, 24-hour laundry service, laptop-size safes, and irons and ironing boards.

 Features

Features are upscale and plentiful.

This resort may be in a remote location, but it offers plenty of activities and features so that guests never run out of things to do. Despite a long list of offerings, however, most guests seem content to lounge by the pristine pool -- complete with a swim-up bar and views of the ocean -- or relax on the gorgeous private beach, where white sands meet turquoise waters. The beach is smaller than those at neighboring properties and there aren’t many shady spaces, but it is rarely crowded and the hotel provides nice lounge chairs and umbrellas.

The property also features a walking path, yoga, biking, snorkeling, kayaking, and many other water sports activities. Each guest can also go on a 45-minute horseback riding tour and receive at 20-minute massage for no additional fee. More horseback riding sessions and longer massages do require a fee, but all guests have free access to the gorgeous spa’s sauna, steam room, whirlpool, sensation shower, and small fitness center.

The all-inclusive rates cover unlimited top-shelf liquor and tasty a la carte meals at the hotel’s four restaurants. Guests can also opt to order from the 24-hour room service menu, and enjoy craft cocktails at the three bars.

 Bottom Line

The Zoetry Agua is one of the most luxurious and tranquil all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic. Catering towards couples, the resort boasts an uncrowded white-sand beach, sleek, spacious suites, a pristine pool, and one of the Dominican Republic’s top spas. Included amenities -- yoga classes, laundry services, top-shelf liquor, and even a horseback riding session -- are plentiful, but a difficult-to-reach location and no kids’ club make it less suited for families. But that’s just what makes it an ideal choice for those seeking a romantic and relaxing getaway.
