If you’re looking for an escape to paradise, then you may not have to search far. Tucked away where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean, is the all-inclusive Club Med Punta Cana in beautiful Dominican Republic.
We were treated with kind hospitality from the moment we arrived. We received a gracious welcome from Elodie, one of the many extraordinary G.O.s (Gracious Organizers) we’ve encountered on our visit. The cold cloths, welcome drinks and bottled water were a lovely welcome in the Caribbean heat. She offered us freshly cut coconut and delicious chocolates – a delight after our flight from the United States!
We were introduced to John, the Zen Oasis Manager who gave us a tour of their newest addition that was opened in 2015.
Zen Oasis is Club Med Punta Cana’s AduIt-Only area that is ideal for couples and adults. We stayed at Zen Oasis for this trip and it was an amazing experience! Zen Oasis felt exactly that – a private oasis designed for a relaxing stay. From the landscape to the endless lagoon pool, every detail of the Zen Oasis zone was in perfect harmony.
Our room was on the top-level so we had a sweeping view of the Zen Oasis grounds from our private terrace. It even had a bed, chairs and table outside if you felt like lounging around. It was one of my favorite things about our stay in Zen Oasis.
The Deluxe Zen rooms are decorated in simple, yet beautiful red, white, gray and rich earthy browns. We felt at peace each time we entered our room.
The rooms have spa-like bathrooms with large rainfall showers, therapeutic bath tubs and mood lighting to help you unwind from the day’s activities. They also include toiletries from L’Occitane and plush towels. If you’re a big fan of music, there is a blue tooth speaker you can use to play music from your mobile device. There is also an auxiliary port if you’d prefer to plug and play your device.
In the mood for a drink? There is a mini refrigerator in the rooms along with bottled water (replenished daily) and a coffee/tea maker complete with tea bags and coffee. You can also visit the poolside wellness bar, Hibiscus Bar & Lounge for drinks, snacks and light meals. You can order the cocktail of the day, premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, teas, coffee, smoothies and other favorite drinks. I ordered their Pina Colada and was addicted.
Bartenders Pier-Luc and Marie-Claire whipped up some top-notch drinks for us! You are also allowed to take your drink back to your room or relax by the pool. If you’re hungry for a large meal, there are 3 restaurants in different locations at the resort.
Zen Oasis has a concierge desk that can help you with just about anything you need. We met Chantal and Rafael and they were a big help! If you need to book a table at Indigo for dinner, pool towels or arrange airport transfers, concierge has you covered.
There are many ways you can relax within the Zen Oasis zone. You could take a dip in the lagoon pool or relax in the spacious Jacuzzi. If you don’t feel like swimming, no – problem! There are plenty of lounge chairs with shade or grab a seat on the private Zen Beach.
If you’re in the mood for some pampering, visit the on site Club Med Spa by L’Occitane. We had a full body massage with amazing lavender oil! There wasn’t any music, only the sound of the waves outside our window. I highly recommend it!
Thank you so much to Club Med Punta Cana for giving us a memorable stay. More about Club Med Punta Cana is coming soon on the blog!
Although we were hosted by Club Med, my opinions are always my own.
