Typically, all-inclusive and wellness wouldn't be found in the same sentence. The excess of an all-inclusive resort doesn't usually lend itself to healthy decisions.

However, more and more all-inclusive resorts are offering wellness retreats for their guests who are looking for a healthier alternative.

One such resort is Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana, located in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The Caribbean destination is offering a Mind, Body, + Sol Retreat that is aligned with its mission of reimagining the all-inclusive experience to be intimate, personal, and centered around meaningful moments.

Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana invited Green Matters to experience the resort before their upcoming Mind, Body, + Sol Retreat, and prove you really can experience well-being at an all-inclusive resort.

Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana is not your typical all-inclusive.

The first thing you notice when you set foot inside Zoëtry Punta Cana is the silence. Unlike its neighboring all-inclusive hotels, there is no loud music blasting, foam pool parties, or screaming kids.

Almost immediately, you are encouraged to write down your intentions for your stay. Ours was simply to disconnect and relax.

And relax we did.

There was no shortage of options for destressing activities from yoga poolside to horseback riding to morning stretching, as well as fun (and engaging) fitness classes such as aqua spinning and dance classes.

The resort's five on-site restaurants offered a variety of cuisines and had plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. Plus, you can't miss tea time — complete with all types of teas and pastries — every day at 5 p.m.

We also checked out Zoetry's luxurious spa, and highly recommend spending some time in the sauna or indoor pool and bubble beds after experiencing a deep-tissue massage.

Or if you just want to read a book on the sand, the property has a gorgeous private beach that is a short walk away. We have never been more relaxed at an all-inclusive (and trust us, we have been to plenty).

So, what can you expect at the Mind, Body, + Sol Retreat at Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana?
