Resort Spolight and W.A.T.W. ~ Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita

One of my favorite things about my 'job' is visiting different resorts around the world and experiencing them as you would.  What do they have to offer that would create wonderful 'lifelong memories' you could take with you and look back on with great fondness?

Before I even stepped foot inside Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita, I knew this resort was special!  From the moment I entered the lobby graced on either side by Zoetry's mascots, Hope and Prosperity, I could feel the wellness, serenity and romance that is the focus of the resort surround me and I was hooked!

Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita is perfectly situated along Cancun‘s famed Riviera Maya just 20 minutes from Cancun‘s International Airport and is set on 14 acres, including 500 yards of private beach.  The resort offers a new kind of vacation experience focused on wellness, serenity and romance, as well as social and environmental responsibility.  Highlights include 90 uniquely decorated oceanfront suites; a 22,000 sq. ft. Thalasso Center and Spa - the first Thalassotherapy Spa in North America (I didn't initially know what that was either so let's just say it's Amazing! ); 3 restaurants featuring gourmet cuisine and stunning views; and 2 luxurious lounges, each serving premium brand domestic and international beverages.  It's easy to see why Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita has earned the AAA Five Diamond Award for 8 consecutive years!

The ultimate in relaxation!

The Spa! There is no better place to experience the concept of a spa than at Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita!  Tucked between a lush mangrove forest and a secluded white sand beach, the Thalasso Center and Spa is a true temple of relaxation and healing. You can experience the perfect blend of ancient tradition and modern science through a wide range of treatments.  I could've spent a month in the Spa alone!

Not to worry if you're not like me and can't spend a week sitting in a beach chair with a good book, a better drink and getting pampered to your hearts content, there are plenty of activities to keep you busy.  Take advantage of all Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita has to offer including fresh water and salt water swimming pools and a private beach, both with wait staff service. Go sailing aboard 'La Bonita', the resorts private 4-cabin catamaran.  Also offered is snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, tennis, yoga, wine tasting and culinary classes, Mayan and Spanish lessons, dance classes, cooking lessons...get the idea?  Not to mention complimentary golf and close proximity to both Cancun and Playa del Carmen for some 'off-resort' entertainment.

Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita also offers wonderful 'Romance Celebration' opportunities.  Because the entire setting is so special and intimate, it adds a spectacular atmosphere to the romance of weddings and honeymoons.  Several options and packages are available but I'll leave those for another time.  If you can't wait to hear the details, contact me and I'd love to share them with you!

Oh, and I got so carried away with my Resort Spotlight that I almost forgot about the celebrity part of my post so I'm forced to keep it short.  Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita has welcomed Malin Akerman, actress and model who has appeared in such films as The Proposal and Watchman and the TV show, 'How I Met Your Mother'.  She was there with her husband to experience the 1st vacation she's had in 3 years!  Another celebrity sighting at the resort was Heidi Klum - I believe she needs no introduction.  She was in Cancun to film her new perfume ad and I'm told fit in very well with the other guests and was a fan of the homemade pita.  I wonder if we sat in the same beach chair?  I always knew I could rub shoulders with celebrities!!
