Brand Launches in Dominican Republic and Increases Presence in Mexico

PHILADELPHIA, PA | AMResorts, award-winning provider of resort sales, marketing and brand management services, today announced plans to launch two new exclusive Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts later this year. Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana will open during Fall 2009 to become the brand’s first offering in the Dominican Republic, followed by Zoëtry Casa del Mar Los Cabos, which is slated to open in Mexico’s Pacific region in early December 2009.

“We are very pleased to bring these two resorts into Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts’ growing portfolio,” said Alex Zozaya, AMResorts’ CEO and president. “Both properties already embody the ambience and service level our guests have come to expect from the Zoëtry brand and through specific enhancements, we plan to exceed expectations of new and returning guests. As Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts continues to expand, we hope to raise the bar for luxury experiential vacations in Mexico and the Caribbean,” Zozaya added.

This news follows an announcement made earlier this year by AMResorts regarding the development of a Zoëtry resort in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana region. With an estimated opening in late 2010, Zoëtry Pearl Sands Cap Cana will become the fourth resort operated under this newly-launched brand of luxury lifestyle resorts.
