More secluded than other resorts in the area, the Chic resort by Royalton is located on gorgeous Uvero Alto and sports a swanky, modern look that will surely impress.

Like the rest of the property, rooms sport a chic, ultra-modern look with up-to-date amenities and a range of rooms, from intimate Luxury Rooms to larger suites with whirlpool tubs.

Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana – All Inclusive

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Courtesy of AMResorts

Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana is a lush property that welcomes everybody but seems more geared toward couples—staff even says “Welcome home” upon your arrival. This resort features a private beach that doesn’t have the blaring music and haranguing peddlers often seen in resort areas. While children are welcome, there are few incentives for them here. Pool areas aren’t crowded and tend to be on the quieter side.

Suites and bedrooms are splendorous, with rustic, luxurious décor. Soaking tubs and rainfall showers in the bathrooms only sweeten the experience, which often includes terraces and a treehouse feel. The spa and fitness center are full-service and stunning, offering many classes and services—plus you receive a complimentary 20-minute wellness treatment. Between 24-hour room service and a limited guest count (only 96 suites in total), on-site eateries are rarely crowded, with five restaurants to choose from offering European, international, Caribbean and Italian cuisines. Drinks are included and feature top-shelf spirits all the way. Outdoor activities like kayaking, yoga, snorkeling and cooking classes are included in the all-inclusive package but for an additional cost you can golf, horseback ride and fish.
