Dancer, model and actress, Zoe Saldana, recently celebrated the holiday season with her family at the beautiful Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya. Zoe, her husband Marco Perego, and 13-month-old twins Cy and Bowie spent their first family vacation lounging by the pool, soaking up the sun on the beach and even took a private catamaran sail!
People.com reported an onlooker stated, “They always looked like they were full of joy and happiness around the property, lots of smiling and laughing from everyone. They also seemed to be very relaxed and in the vacation spirit, simply enjoying family time.”
Zoëtry Casa del Mar Los Cabos recently had the honor of hosting a very special guest. Melissa Joan Hart, best known for her roles in the hit TV shows Clarissa Explains it All and Sabrina the Teenage Witch, celebrated her birthday and an early Mother’s Day with her husband and two sons at our resort.
Melissa enjoyed many of the resort’s Mexican specialties, such as the racheros eggs, guacamole and fish tacos. We did our best to “wow” Melissa with a private beachside dinner for her birthday, which included a Caesar Salad, Lobster Bisque, Filet Mignon & Shrimp for the main course and Lemon Cake for dessert.
Melissa’s family getaway was filled with quality time with her husband and two sons, relaxing spa treatments and even a camel ride on the beach!

We’re excited to reveal that Malin Akerman was our recent celebrity guest at Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita. This was the first vacation that Malin and her husband, Roberto Zincone, had taken together in over three years. Although we treat all of our guests as celebrities, we pulled out all the stops to make sure they had a romantic and relaxing getaway at our resort.
Malin and Roberto enjoyed relaxing on the beach, swimming in the pool, indulging in spa treatments and dining in our gourmet restaurants. They also took a romantic cruise aboard our 48 ft. private catamaran, La Bonita.

Art Smith, chef, author, and television personality has brought back meaning and symbolism to the word “table” and has united families and friends through the Art of sharing of a meal. He is a contributing editor to O, the Oprah Magazine and the Food section of Oprah.com and has appeared several times on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” He is featured regularly on television programs, such as “The Today Show” and “Good Day Live” and serves as a regular tasting judge on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America.”
Art was able to break away from his busy schedule to plan a much needed getaway and belated honeymoon with his long time partner Jesus Salgeiro at Zoëtry Casa del Mar. He also traveled with celebrity health coach Az Ferguson, who helped him stay fit and “keep the sexy going on” during the trip as he tweeted the other day. With the help of Az Ferguson, Art has lost over 100 pounds, successfully completed two marathons and is now planning to become the next Buff Chef.
The trip to Zoëtry Casa del Mar provided the perfect opportunity for running on the beach, bike riding, swimming and working out in our beautiful fitness center with his trainer. Art also enjoyed dining in our gourmet restaurants and appreciated the fact that our menus contain calorie information so he could make informed meal choices.
But Art’s vacation wasn’t just about health and fitness. He decided to share his incredible cooking talents with the guests at Zoëtry Casa del Mar too! He hosted several beachside cooking classes, featuring some of Oprah’s favorite recipes. He also teamed up with our resort chef to come up with a special of the day for our restaurants.
You never quite know who you are going to bump into at Zoëtry Casa del Mar! This week was especially exciting for our guests who enjoyed dishes prepared by a world renowned chef. We are so grateful that we were able share this special time in Art’s life with him and hope that he and Jesus will consider returning again in the future!
Stay tuned for our next blog. We will be featuring Art Smith’s recipe for Oprah’s favorite Mac and Cheese!
