Don’t let distractions from home prevent you from taking in views like this!

  1. Pack light. Don’t take your laptop with you if you don’t have to and if you have a phone dedicated just to work, leave it at home. This will not only eliminate the temptation to be constantly checking email, but will also leave more room in your bag for books and magazines to read poolside or on the beautiful white sand beaches.
  1. Regulate your check-ins. If you must check in with work, try to schedule specific check-in times. Designate one time during the day when you will check your voice mail, respond to emergency emails or call the office.

World’s Best Hotel Bathrooms: Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana

Do you find yourself constantly seeking out the world’s best bathroom? Well, maybe not, but you can count on the writers at PeterGreenberg.com to help! In a series called ‘Luxe Lavs,’ some of the top travel journalists spotlight the world’s best hotel bathrooms and, recently, Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana made the list!

In honor of the summer season, last month’s Luxe Lavs highlighted “The Coolest Outdoor Showers from Around the World.” Zoëtry Agua was chosen for its natural outdoor showers surrounded by natural flora, eco-friendly treatments and décor, multiple shower jet settings, and more.

… the eco-experience of showering outdoors on a private patio made from eco-friendly materials. Natural stones, hardwoods, cathedral ceilings and cane thatched roofs surround guests as they relax and massage under multiple shower jet settings.  With a nod to the Dominican Republic’s history, Zoetry Agua provides Spanish products, Natura Bisse, for guests’ outdoor shower treatments.  Local flora landscapes the private patios and local artists’ stone-work adds small touches to the shower experience.

Points of Interest Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana: Isla Saona

While staying at Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana, guests have the opportunity to visit Isla Saona, a small yet beautiful island off the southeast shore of the Dominican Republic. The island, deemed an official nature reserve by the Dominican government, is home to a wide array of tropical animals. It is particularly well-known for its pristine beaches and abundance of natural sandbars, which provide visitors with an excellent snorkeling experience.

Christopher Columbus discovered this gem of the Caribbean Sea on his second voyage to North America in 1494. Saona was actually named in honor of Savona, Italy, where Columbus resided at the time. The two locations still continue their close partnership to this day—Saona even boasts a small power plant that was a gift from the Italian city.

Due to its easy access and supreme natural beauty, guests at Zoëtry Agua should definitely check out Isla Saona for a memorable day trip during their stay!

Saona Island (in Spanish Isla Saona) is a tropical island located a short distance from the mainland on the south-east tip of the Dominican Republic.

For transportation to the island, there are several catamaran tours that host daily boat trips there. Speak with your concierge today to book your extraordinary day trip!

Everyone Should Enjoy Endless Privileges

For those of you who have never stayed with us before, you may find yourself asking “is Endless Privileges® all it’s really cracked up to be?” Rather than hearing it from us, we thought we’d take the opportunity to highlight some comments from a recent guest that were published on the Apple Vacations Blog.

Chau Tran recently took a family vacation to Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana. Her experience at our resort was so great, that it has now become her “benchmark for measuring future resort experiences and what an amazing trip should be.” This exact feeling is something we strive to achieve with each and every one of our guests who stay with us. Our goal is not only to meet expectations, but to exceed them and set a new precedence for what should be expected of a vacation experience.

Keep reading for more details about Chau’s stay at Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana.

What was Chau’s first impression of our resort?
 “From the moment I stepped foot into Zoëtry, I fell in love.”

How did Chau describe the ambiance at the resort?
 “Zoëtry Agua is located on an isolated stretch of beach that gives the resort an exclusive feel. Although we were advised the resort was full, it never felt crowded. Beach chairs were always available and there was never a wait for anything.”

What is an example of how the resort catered to Chau’s family?
“Nonchalantly, I mentioned to a staff member how much my family and I enjoy coconut milk. From the time I made that remark, until the day I left the resort, the staff made sure to have fresh coconuts waiting for us as we arrived at the beach even though I never officially asked.”

Why was it difficult for Chau and her family to leave Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana?
“Due to the small size of the resort, guests are able to become familiar with the staff and vice versa. The staff catered to our every need, if we wanted something, they found a way to get it to us. They made sure you felt like Zoëtry was your second home. It made leaving so much more difficult, because not only are you leaving stunning surroundings, it feels like you are also saying goodbye to good friends.”
