Golden Bear Lodge set for November Opening:
The Golden Bear Lodge & Spa of Cap Cana, inspired on the life of golfer Jack Nicklaus, will be the first of the Zoetry Collection of luxury hotels, a new brand of the US hotel chain AmResorts.
The boutique resort, located in the Cap Cana tourism and residential development, is scheduled for a November 1, 2009 opening. It seeks to cater to discerning travelers and to offer tropical golfing for vacationers of all ages.
It is set between the championship Punta Espada golf course and the Las Iguanas course, under construction. Punta Espada has been a stop on the PGA Tour's Champions Tour in 2008 and 2009.
Agua Reopens as Zoetry Resorts Agua Punta Cana:
The Zoetry Wellness & Spa Resorts chain is opening the Zoetry Agua Punta Cana, this time as a Zoetry Resort brand, on November 1, 2009. Zoetry Agua Punta Cana is the former Agua boutique hotel, located in Uvero Alto, in northern Punta Cana featuring 53 cane-thatched suites with beach views. The boutique resort will feature butler services and that of a personal golf concierge at its 53 cane-thatched suites with beach views.
This is the first Zoetry Resorts property in the Dominican Republic. DR1 Travel News had erroneously confused it last week with the first Zoetry Collections property, the Golden Bear Lodge & Spa that also will be opening November 1 at Cap Cana, in the Punta Cana area.
