Agua Resort & Spa Offers Luxury in Uvero Alto

April 23, 2007 By: Joe Pike Travel Agent

Travel Agent was onsite for the resort's pre-opening

Travel Agent got a sneak preview April 10 of the
soon-to-be-open Agua Resort &
in Uvero Alto, an up-and-coming town near Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
The 40,000-square-meter facility literally opened its doors when we arrived for
a pre-opening ceremony. The resort will be fully complete and ready for the
public by mid-to-late May.

The best room is 53, the Villa Caney. It is a three-bedroom
villa that has more than 4,000 square feet of living space and a private
garden-view terrace. The villas also have a kitchen bathroom and a private
garden with a swimming pool.

Two bedrooms each include a king-sized bed and the third
bedroom has two double beds. Its traditional Caribbean
architecture consists of natural stone, local hardwoods and cane-thatched
roofs. Each bedroom includes a large bathroom partially open to an inside
garden and has a deep soaking tub, separate shower with multiple jets and
spacious closet. The nightly tariff for this villa will be approximately $1,800
a night.

We stayed in room 2, an Agua Garden View Junior Suite.
Selling for between $400 and $600 a night, this suite has a patio with a view
of one of the two pools on property, a king-sized bed and a spacious bathroom.

The best views can be had from any of the Ocean View Junior
Suites. These rooms are right on the beach, with 775 square feet of space,
French doors leading to a private tropical terrace and sophisticated furniture
positioned for views of the azure waters. These suites have either one
king-sized bed or two queen-sized beds. The large bathroom with ocean views has
a deep soaking tub, separate shower with multiple jets, double vanity and
spacious walk-in closet.
