We bet you look great in a bikini. Er, maybe that came out wrong. What we mean to say is this:
If you’ve got it, go ahead and flaunt it!
And better than just flaunting it, how about keeping it? You know, taut, toned and not movin’ around in that itty bitty suit? These fabulous resorts will help you do just that, with innovative fitness programs, meal plans and wellness services that will keep your mind and body in tip top shape, even as you play. And hey, we won’t say anything if you sneak an extra margarita or cookie from that snack bar. This is a vacation, after all! Detox, then retox.
If you’re looking for: healthy, gourmet meals
Allow us to introduce: El Dorado Casitas Royale
El Dorado Casitas Royale is well known for its gourmet restaurants and menus that have even pickiest foodies raving. But what are we really singing their praises for? The innovative health bar, which serves up much more than just your garden variety tropical juices and smoothies. Try a ladle of their gourmet soups, like the fresh carrot and orange with ginger and leek. Or, for a heartier meal, opt for the Thai Steak Sala with grilled flank steak, soba noodles, sprouts, and zesty ginger chili vinaigrette. With all of the nutritional information readily available, it’s easy to make smart choices that fuel you up for a fun and full day on the beach.
Aside from its regular schedule of fitness programs like yoga on the beach, daily bike tours, cross-fit and a weekly 5k run, El Dorado Casitas Royale also occasionally brings in superstars trainers for a little added motivation. If you’re a Dancing with the Stars fan, you’re surely familiar with Karina Smirnoff, the feisty dancing vet with killer moves. She’ll be teaching beachfront dance and fitness sessions at El Dorado Casitas Royale from June 20th to 22nd.
If you’re looking for: beach fitness programs
Allow us to introduce: Sandos Playacar
We have great news for you. Your newfound love of Zumba— you know, the one that started as a New Year’s resolution and turned into a full-time obsession? You can keep doing it during your destination wedding. In fact, how about we trade out that stuffy, crowded studio with those unforgiving mirrors for a white sand beach and bright blue skies? And for good measure, let’s throw in a few rhythmically-challenged members of your wedding party and a couple of margaritas and see what happens. Trust us, those memories will be forever seared into your brain!
Aside from its beach dance parties, Sandos Playacar also has two full-sized tennis courts equipped with lighting for night rounds. Or, try a game of mini golf, grab a bike to explore the lush property, or enjoy spin or yoga classes at the fully-equipped gym. You’ll be having so much fun, you likely won’t even notice how many calories you’re zapping.
If you’re looking for: all-natural wellness
Allow us to introduce: Zoetry Agua Punta Cana
We’re all for working out and eating right, but sometimes staying healthy during your destination wedding involves a more nuanced, holistic approach. That’s why we adore Zoetry Resorts’ approach to well-being and relaxation. Their Endless Privileges Program at the Zoetry Agua Punta Cana includes a complimentary wellness consultation, so you can check in and get some feedback from a pro who will happily answer your questions and concerns. The resort also makes exercise a romantic and restorative process, with activities like complimentary horseback riding on the beach, massages, yoga and stretch classes.
Aside from the physical perks of these activities, their wellness program should help to spark a little creativity from you, too. The resort encourages you to spend time with their in-house artists that will help teach you how to paint, dance, cook, roll cigars, and appreciate wine. Or, more generally, to appreciate and soak up every blissful and creative possibility of your stay.
