State of the art Spa & Wellness Center Opens in the Dominican Republic

Sivory Punta Cana, the Dominican Republic’s newest five-star luxury hotel opened its wonderfully appointed Aquarea Spa & Wellness Center in January 2006 as a welcome addition to this elegant boutique hotel. A destination of complete serenity, the Aquarea Spa & Wellness Center is situated at the new and elegant Sivory Punta Cana resort on the Dominican Republic’s spectacular eastern coast. Tranquility and beauty are the ongoing gifts of this protected environment where dense tropical vegetation of the Uvero Alto countryside, creates an ultimate sense of privacy.

The spa reflects the Sivory designers’ core belief that true serenity is derived from a oneness with nature and is the key to internal peace so elusive in modern times. At Sivory, as well as at the Aquarea Spa, a decidedly European flavor blends with the exotic moods of Polynesia while Caribbean cultural influences and art create an eclectic and soothing environment. Aquarea offers guests and visitors an invitation to relax and truly ‘get away from it all.’ This oasis features premium facilities and its services include four different hydrotherapy treatments, massage therapy, body and facial treatments, and the luxurious Vichy Shower that detoxifies the body and creates a deep spiritual environment for the mind. An alternative to the larger scale more tourist-oriented hotels nearby, Sivory Punta Cana places priority on impeccable guest services and amenities that can be adapted to meet individual needs—all designed to surpass the expectations of even the most sophisticated travellers. And this philosophy is carried forward no more so than at the Sivory Punta Cana Aquarea Spa & Wellness Center. The spa reflects the atmosphere and ambience of Sivory both in its structure and spirit. A beautifully integrated architectural entity, the Aquarea Spa & Wellness Center is a stylish embodiment of the resort’s essence and the treatment rooms and mediation garden remove stress and promote total well being of mind, body and soul. Aquarea Spa is proud to offer some irresistible packages tailored to meet guests and visitors specific needs.
