It's been about 5 months since my wedding here (long overdue a review) and all I can say is; if you are looking to have an amazing, beautiful, fun & well organized wedding - Kukua is the place to go! Looking back, if I had...to do my wedding all over again, I would 100% go with Kukua. Mayte and Rachel are the "fairy godmothers" of weddings - they are very organized, patient, and attentive to detal. (I really struggled on what I wanted for my overall colors/vision for my wedding to be, but both mayte & rachel created something beyond my expectations). All the staff was very friendly and accomodating, and the food/drinks were excellent. All my guests were blown away, and would love to revisit again.More

What can I say? I can say that Kukua Beach Club and Restaurant was the ABSOLUTE BEST DECISION that I made when it comes to Punta Cana and Brunch! Each year, I plan and execute a pre-Mother's Day Getaway and this year Punta Cana was...chosen. As a thank you for my traveling guests, I host (and pay for) a Mother's Day Brunch...this year, our theme was Ladies In Red! Well, I did some research and Kukua's kept coming up high on the list in my searches. I am SUPER happy that I went with my gut instinct. The other venues that I looked at were nice; however, there was something about the responses that I received that made Kukua my choice. Martye was super accommodating, super courtesy and an ABSOLUTE PLEASURE to work with. The food was AMAZING! The service was SUPERB! If you are looking for a venue for an intimate wedding, brunch, or any type of group gathering...you MUST book KUKUA! AGD Travel & Tours HIGHLY RECOMMENDS!More

We had our wedding here 2/22/24 and were BLOWN AWAY from start to finish! We were lost in the process of planning a wedding, never mind a destination wedding, and were referred to Kukua by friends not knowing what to expect. Kukua is a personalized...and intimate venue; The complete opposite from a typical “resort” wedding! Rachel was an absolute dream to work with. She was a fierce friend and advocate in making our vision come to life. She answered every text, email, call, question, and concern with swiftness, compassion, and expertise. I would trust my whole life with Rachel at this point! Mayte and David were a breath of fresh air to meet in person and helped finalize our dream on site. They are a well oiled machine! They operated seamlessly and professionally… Watching them orchestrate every little detail left me at ease (which is very rare for my A-type controlling personality). They made it so easy to just sit back, relax, and trust (and even enjoy) the process! The food and beverages were INCREDIBLE and a welcomed break from mass-produced resort food for ourselves and our guests. Our guests are still raving about our wedding! I wish we could relive our wedding day over and over again. Do not hesitate to reach out and inquire about making your dream wedding come true at Kukua! You will not regret it!

The decoration was stunningly beautiful all our guest get into the vibe, and was like the picture out of our head, also the FOOD WAS DELICIOUS, and the CAKE OMG the most delicious cake, surprisingly tasty.

We had our wedding 2.10.24 with 82 of our friends and family travelling from all over the country and it was incredible! Wedding colors/theme: Boho Glam! Cream/ivory, light blush, eucalyptus colored greenery, natural tones DJ: Kukua DJ. He was great! We kind of took control...and made playlists for everything, because I was just too much of a control freak. But he followed all our requests for music, cut it when it needed to be cut (our reception entrance got explicit at 32 seconds so we wanted it cut at 31 exactly lol), and kept the party going! MC: Kukua MC. He was so sweet and did a fantastic job! Communicated with us well when we had questions and we loved him! We kept laughing as he kept calling my dad “Meeester (like Mr but drawn out) Jefff” and now it’s a nickname that’ll never leave the family. We loved him! Wedding planners and Coordinators: simply amazing and the best! Rachel made the process so easy leading up to the wedding. She isn’t just a wedding planner, she also is a friend you make for life! She is so kind with the biggest heart and we adore her! She was always there to answer every question and she went above and beyond for us! We had a small hiccup with chandeliers prior to the wedding (vendor issue, not Kukua) and Rachel and Mayte worked tirelessly to come up with a solution and it was BETTER than I could’ve ever imagined and way better than what it was originally suppose to be. I am so grateful to the two of them for this!!!! It honestly made my dream come to life with this hiccup, so in hindsight I’m so happy it happened LOL Mayte is exactly who Rachel makes her out to be- she is so sweet, wonderful, and incredibly talented. And she is on it!!! She ran through everything with us during our tasting, and eased all my anxiety! And how she brings it all to life- oh my gosh. I mean I knew Kukua was good, but I didn’t know they would be this good! My guests cannot stop talking about how incredible and beautiful it was- many told us it was the most beautiful wedding they’ve ever been to! I am a complete control freak and with Mayte, I was actually able to sit back and let it all unfold. I still can’t get over the floral arrangements and how they hand make them all in house. Mayte put all our bouquets together and they were incredible. When you see the venue blank, it’s hard to envision your dream wedding come to life. But let me tell you… trust MAYTE, the staff, and the process. It will be far beyond what you could’ve ever dreamed!!!! And the moment you sit down with Mayte and start to go over it all and you taste the food, you are reassured right in that moment! We are soooooo happy we trusted Kukua, Mayte, Rachel, David, and all the staff to help our dream day come to life! The Venue and Staff: -Every touch, every thing, every one- from top to bottom, were AMAZING. They were so on top of it all and they were incredible. Every detail was perfect and if it wasn’t, I sure as heck did not notice at all! I can go on and on, but I think the pictures will do the talking. It was incredible and they carry out your dream! I am forever grateful to Kukua and all of its wonderful staff! Bridal Suite: -just the freaking best! Air conditioned and more than enough room for the 10 plus of us in there! Kukua’s steamer was perfect to do all of our dresses day of and the service was amazing with drinks and food for getting ready! Tasting: -Simply incredible. The food and drinks were top notch, as was Mayte! It was so fun to try everything and for everything to come together. Our signature drinks were the passion fruit mojito and the pina colada. My mom hates mojitos and even she was obsessed! The something blue was our other favorite! For apps we chose: 1. salmon roll, 2. chicken and pineapple skewers, 3. Fresh tomato, basilisco, and parmesan cheese Bruschetta, 4. Mediterranean style vegetables mini panni with goat cheese, and 5. Seabass and shrimp ceviche with spicy passion fruit dressing and plantain chips. Guest favorites were the ceviche, and the goat cheese and bruschetta- last two being my favorite for sure!!! For dinner we did the pineapple chicken salad (INCREDIBLE!), avocado carbonara, filet and seabass. I will be dreaming of the seabass forever- it was soooo good! For the cake, omg. I’m still dreaming about it and wish I could get some shipped to my house. They get their cakes through Cake Studio by Ana and we did two flavors, and I never even tried the red velvet. The winner that all my guests cannot stop talking about is vanilla flavor, dulce de leche filling, American butter cream frosting. It’s seriously so good. I ate cake with my hands for like 3 days after the wedding in our room. And I would do it again if I had some at home. The best wedding cake I have ever had!!!! Our friends keep asking if we’re going back for our one year anniversary and if they can come so they can get a slice of cake! LOL Mini Desserts: Churros, key lime pie, crème brule. We were obsessed at our tasting. Late night: tacos and nachos- cant speak on these as we didn’t try our late night as we were on the dance floor all night long! Add on’s we did that we considered our favorite/must do’s: -Shot seating chart with tequila and lime, our guests loved it -LOVE sign. I didn’t choose it at first cause it felt cliché but our guests loved it, especially with the little fireworks going off during our first dance! Get the fireworks they are worth it! -Chandeliers, just do it. It was stunning -Sweetheart table couch: felt like I was in game of thrones. It was awesome. -Cascading lights and bistro lights: my groom wanted all the lighting and he was so right. It was pretty windy so we had to keep the shades down and the cascading lighting made it so romantic and intimate! Get all the lighting, its worth it! We had our dream day, it was perfect. And we will be dreaming of it for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Kukua, especially Rachel and Mayte, for making the wedding of our dreams come true. Other vendors review’s: Hair: Natalia (Instagram: browbar_dmn), I’m obsessed with her. She was so sweet to work with, brought a second to do hair since we had so many, and all of our hair styles looked amazing. I had done absolutely no trial and just showed her pictures from pinterest and told her what I did and didn’t like, and she knocked it out of the freaking park! Can’t recommend her enough! MUA: Blushed Hair and Makeup from Detroit, MI- Lauren is incredibly talented and had actually done both my siblings weddings, so it was a no brainer to bring her along to help complete the trifecta! If you are in the Detroit area, highly recommend Lauren for your wedding prep and all things skin related- she is one of the most amazing estheticians (super successful business-#1 detroit metro area) and the kindest human being ever. And she made me feel like a Victoria Secret Angel on my wedding day! Photographer: Shauna Wear Photography, also located in Detroit and we’ve done so many shoots with her, so we just had to bring her along. She is incredible so highly recommend if you want to bring her along to Kukua or if you’re in the Detroit area needing an engagement shoot, she’s your girl! Videography: Wedding Films Punta Cana. Though we have not seen any video content just yet, they were incredible to work with and it definitely seemed like they were getting all the good shots and all the good angles! Joel and his assistant were so sweet! Can’t wait to see the finished product! Save the dates and Invitations: Truly Engaging- can’t recommend enough. Affordable and worth the extra $ to have envelopes addressed for you. Travel Agents: Kristen Bullock and Patty Jordan from Unique Romance and Adventure Travel. Cannot recommend these two enough! They coordinated travel for all of our guests and ourselves, answered every question along the way, and were on top of it 24/7. They were so friendly and so wonderful to work with! I would highly recommend them for your wedding room block, and personal travel in general! Private Boat Tour- Renny Travel. We did a boat for about 30 of us (parents, grandparents, groomsmen and plus ones, bridesmaids and plus ones, siblings and their kids) and it cost about $1500 and it was soooo worth it! We were questioning if we had it in the budget, but I’m so glad we found a way to make it work! It was so nice to sneak away with just the bridal party and we had a blast on the boat. We did it as part of their gifts and everyone was so appreciative, with everyone saying it was one of their favorite days. The onlyyyyyyy thing I would say is ask them to skip the dolphin island- its basically dolphins in the middle of the ocean locked in areas. It’s sad and we hated it, and had I known we would’ve skipped. But otherwise they did a great job. They also brought a photographer and we got roped into buying all the photos but they were so good and we loveeeee photos, so we budged and bought over 500 photos for $250. Bridesmaid dresses: Azazie Eucalyptus Stretch Satin. I’ve been in chiffon and pink for every wedding I’ve ever been in so I knew I wanted to do something different. These popped sooooo good against the sand and everyone was obsessed! My bridesmaids were really nervous about the stretch satin, a few of them concerned being a little bit more curvy. But they all looked AMAZING in them and all of them unanimously agreed the material was the best for the climate and these were dresses they would actually wear again! We let them pick out whatever they felt best in and I highly recommend. Cant recommend these dresses enough. Men’s suits: men’s wearhouse light grey linen suit. Only the groom and dad’s wore full suit and remainder wore just pants with brown (belt, shoes) and it looked amazingggg. I’m just not a fan of khaki so im so glad we went with this decision and it’s something he will definitely wear again! It ended up costing groomsmen about $150 for nice pants, shirt, belt, and shoes that they’ll all wear again they said! Dress: Lillian West, bought at The Bridal Collection in Centennial, CO Resort: RIU PALACE PUNTA CANA. Ok, so mixed feelings about the RIU. We loved how close it was to Kukua and that they shared a property line with Kukua so it was just a few steps and you were there. We loved how cost affordable it was for our guests. Would we have liked to stay somewhere a little nicer? Maybe. But it did it’s job of being cost affordable, having decent food, great pools, and a beautiful beach! It was easy to find everyone within the resort. The pools were seriously so great! Food could’ve been better- but is all inclusive food ever really incredible? Steakhouse was okay- get the chicken. Japanese restaurant was bomb. Italian had good food but terrible service- went like 3 times and each time wondered why we went back lol. Bartenders and servers poolside were AMAZING. They also had daily entertainment and activities! We did a room block with our travel agent and because of it, got some freebies so highly recommend doing that! We paid to privatize the steakhouse for a “toasts and roasts dinner” the night before the wedding, and also had a welcome cocktail party. A few guests ended up with some upset stomachs, but a lot of us were there for a week, so I feel like it’s bound to happen at some point anywhere you go!More

Choosing to have our wedding at Kukua was the best decision I could have ever made. I’ll start with working with Rachel was amazing from beginning to end. Juan, David, and Mayte are all incredible and made sure our vision came to life. The venue...is 10x more beautiful in person than in pictures. For our tasting we met with David and Juan - they were both incredible and were there executing everything on the wedding day along with Catalina. They went above and beyond to make the set up look beautiful and arrange everything how we wanted. The food was delicious, all our guests really enjoyed it. The drinks were great - we chose the passion fruit cocktail and Kukua refresh as our signature drinks. People couldn’t get enough of the passion fruit one. We asked for a specific set up for chairs and were unsure if they’d be able to do it due to number of guests, but they did it no problem. Bridal suite was great, lots of AC so that was nice. The bartenders and waitstaff were awesome. The MC was amazing!! Ended the night with everyone jumping into the pool - cherry on top! All in all - it was the best and most perfect day!!! Our guests haven’t stopped raving about it and loved every minute. Kukua’s DJ was incredible! We provided genres we wanted and some artists we really like. He kept everyone on the dance for the entire night and our guests couldn’t stop raving about him. He played an extra song after we were supposed to end because everyone was having so much fun. I was really specific about the wedding decor, we wanted everything to look elegant. They nailed the flowers, originally I wanted more minimalistic look but after chatting with Rachel back and forth, the way they did the decor was perfect. I’m an illustrator, so I decided to make my own menus, seating chart, and place cards. Kukua had no issues with this and set everything up perfectly. For photography we used Laura Morales and her assistant - both were amazing. I was blown away, they truly captured the feel and brought our vision to life. They were on time and stayed pretty much the entire night. Would recommend Laura over and over again! We decided to add videography about a month before our wedding, we’d gone back and forth about it but ultimately decided it was important for us. Joel from Wedding Films Punta Cana and his team were super accommodating and sent over a sneak peak reel the next day. They were amazing to work with and I highly recommend them.More

So I see so many past brides writing reviews about their day and I just got sneak peaks from our photographer so I am going to write my version of a review LOL First off, you're all in the right place to have the wedding...of your freaking dreams. I am still coping with the fact that it's all over. It was the greatest wedding experience I could have asked for. Rachel is a fairy godmother and I will be bugging her for the rest of my life because I can't imagine never talking to her again Photo: Laura Morales Video: Amantes Hair & Makeup: Anna Nuet If they align with your style, BOOK ALL OF THEM!!!!! They are all incredibly sweet and truly there for YOU, just like Rachel and Mayte. I seriously could not have been any happier with all of them. I will sing their praises for a lifetime!!! Our tasting was incredible. We had it two days before our wedding - it was so fun because my husband was obviously excited but the tasting made him so pumped since he got to meet Mayte, see the venue, etc. As expected, Mayte was incredible. It truly was just a 1000000/10 experience finishing off small details with her while eating amazing food with your hubby... GO TO YOUR TASTING HUNGRY. We didn't eat breakfast that day and we still could not stomach everything LOL. So. Much. Food. It's all so freaking good though so you do somehow manage to eat a lot of it. The only things we added that were considered "extra" in my opinion were the LOVE sign, the fireworks at the end of our first dance, the champagne wall, and charger plates. I recommend them all, especially the love sign & fireworks. Beautiful touches to the evening. I provided the DJ with a playlist and he did a fantastic job. We were a PARTY group so I had initial anxiety about this when I first started planning with Rachel, but he did a great job with what I provided and kept the party going from the second first dances ended until the last song of the night. He took any song requests and three of us did kareoke throughout the night and he was all for it. Getting ready the day of was amazing, something I did to help was ordering lunch for us ladies. They have a menu in the bridal suite so it was easy for everyone to order what they wanted. Also, I was super worried with how hot I was that my hair and makeup looked horrible in photos. I was thinking to myself that there is no way I am going to like my pictures lol, BUT every photo I've seen so far im thrilled with. I cannot believe it held up the way it did! If there's anything else you have questions about just let me know - tipping, dress change, etc. I could go on and on and ON! I was ITCHING for my wedding day for a year and now I'd do anything to have it back lol. Enjoy the ride, it ends so fast :( Lastly, My advice to all the brides - you will love your day no matter what. I had a lot of stress leading up to the trip, however once we got to PC, I did not have a care in the world besides being with my friends and family. PUT YOUR FAITH IN RACHEL, MAYTE, AND THE STAFF. Even if something isn't exactly how you wanted or doesn’t go as planned, it does not matter and will still be amazing. At the end of the day you're marrying your person!!!! It literally can't be a bad day!More

Took me forever to write this review but this place deserves me taking the time. Our wedding took place on March 7, 2023. Planning a wedding after the pandemic was not easy. I had been researching for months for the perfect destination and wedding venue....We initially spoke to Rachel on October 2021 and it was the most reassuring conversation that I have ever had in my life. Rachel has a gift for making brides feel certain and stress free. We worked on the wedding details for months in advance and she always made herself available, which was very helpful given that we were planning a wedding from afar. We were one of the lucky couples that got to meet Rachel in person. Her personality is so much more vibrant and beautiful in person. We were so happy that she was able to attend our wedding. It gave it so much more meaning. Imagine having the person that helped you plan the most beautiful day of your life be part of it as well. She reminded me to smile when I was feeling nervous and made me laugh as I was getting ready with the girls. Rachel if you’re reading this, sending you lots of love, hugs and just wanted you to know you are amazing. On the day of the wedding, I was just blown away. Despite the reassuring conversations that I had with Rachel; I was not understanding how Mayte was going to bring my wedding vision to life. Ladies trust the process and trust in Mayte. I thought that I was very keen to details but let me tell you Mayte had surpassed my vision, everything was beautiful and breathtaking. She honestly went above and beyond to include things that I had shared with her such as a pink velvet couch. She has such a beautiful talent, and she will also ensure that you feel like a princess if not a queen on your very special day. Mayte you also are amazing. I love my Kukua family, and I wouldn’t trade them for anyone else in the world, literally writing this makes me tear.More
