This honeymooners favorite is an all-inclusive five-star resort with a contemporary island feel.  There are thatched on all the buildings along a pair of sinuous pools, with weathered-wood boardwalks to connect the upper levels. Room interiors are done in angular modern lines, yet in earth tones of dark wood and creams, with parquet floors, wood and wicker furnishings, and bamboo poster beds in higher-end suites. 
 
Some rooms are beginning to show their age, so try to get one in the property’s newer half, consisting of a handful of Junior Suites Aguas, the Ocean View Suites, the Penthouse, and the westernmost trio of Ocean Front suites.
 
Your stay includes premium drinks, all meals, non-motorized water sports, plus a 20-minute massage and a 45-minute horseback ride ride on the beach.
 
Note that often only two of the resort’s restaurants are open on a given night. However, room service is available 24/7—plus the Zoëtry is part of the AMResorts family, whose “Sip, Savor, & See” program allows you to have dinner (and drinks, and entertainment) at any of six other properties around Punta Cana, including the Dreams, Secrets, Breathless, and Now Larimar resorts (reserve by 3pm; transport not included).
