    Our Dream Wedding Thanks to Kukua

    I am finally getting around to writing our review for our wedding at Kukua at the end of Jan (I have been avoiding my laptop after work since working from home due to Covid so it is beyond overdue!)
    Now where to even begin this review as I’m not sure my words can really do it justice!

    From the very first email you could tell that Kukua and its amazing coordination team of Mayte, Rachel and Bego were operating at a completely different level to other wedding venues (and I reached out to a lot of venues around the world before choosing Kukua!)

    Kukua usually hosts 100s of weddings every year yet despite this they managed to make us (and I’m sure every couple that chooses them) feel like our wedding (and making it everything we ever dreamt of) was their top priority. Their customer service, attentiveness, responsiveness, flexibility, organisation and warmth was second to none and just makes you feel really special and excited about your wedding. I felt so comfortable and confident about our wedding because of the Kukua team - which was amazing given I was planning a destination wedding from Australia and had never been to Kukua before!

    Whilst planning the details of our wedding Rachel was on hand literally all hours of the day offering advice and support on any matters (even beyond our wedding) that came to mind. She felt like an old friend from our first conversation and still does now.

    Arriving at our tasting a few days before our wedding was like a dream. The venue is even more stunning than the photos let on and Mayte again just made my husband, our wedding and I feel so special, important and that everything was in hand. Nothing was too big an ask and Mayte stepped us through all the details so they would be just how we imagined.

    The food and drinks during the tasting were incredible (I’d return to the DR and Kukua just for that!) and they were replicated to the same super high standard on our wedding night (and we went with the cheapest menu option!)

    On our wedding day it was just amazing to see everything we had been thinking and dreaming about be come to life! The hard work, detail, organisation and care that Mayte and the Kukua team put into the décor and just making sure we had the best experience was unbelievable. Seriously the décor and floristry is just jaw dropping! I can’t imagine what our wedding would have cost if we tried to achieve the same result in Australia!
    Everything ran so smoothly throughout our wedding, the service us and our guests received was just another level and every little detail just blew us away. I honestly wouldn’t choose any other venue if we were to plan our wedding all over again!

    My advice to future brides would be do not hesitate to book Kukua for your dream wedding as they will make everything beyond amazing!

    Be specific with the DJ about the music/ songs that suit your wedding party (I wasn’t specific enough).

    Tell your guests to bring towels if they are going to jump in the pool at the end of the night.

    Confirm with Kukua if they can organise a towel for the bride and groom to get the sand off your feet after beach photos if you’re wanting to put shoes back on.

    Did I mention book Kukua if you’re serious about realising your dream wedding!?

    Thank you so much Rachel, Mayte, Bego and the whole Kukua team – you are all so special and truly amazing. We will cherish our wedding experience with you forever!

    Kukua Beach Club & Restaurant's reply:

    Helen,

    You were so easy to love from the moment we connected and having you share one of the most significant moments in your life with us, was our blessing! It means more than words can express to know that you felt loved and supported throughout your journey (and beyond), as choosing us all the way from Australia speaks volumes. Watching all the love that was shared on your wedding day and seeing you in your dress as your floated down the aisle, are memories that we will forever cherish! We can never express how grateful we are to have been able to make your dream wedding be everything you ever wanted. Our hearts and arms will forever be open awaiting the day we can shower you both with love again.

    Love forever and a day,
    Mayte & The Kukua Wedding Team

    Amazing Venue!!!

    I had my destination wedding a little over a month ago at Kukua Beach Club and it definitely exceeded our expectations. The staff was very professional and catered to our every needs. The food and drinks were AMAZING!!! And most importantly, the décor was perfect, even better than I imagined. Whether you have a small group or large one, the Kukua team will make your dream wedding come to life. They offer so many décor options to make every wedding unique. Our wedding planner (Mayte) was also very helpful and amazing at her job. I couldn't of asked for a better venue and was so happy we chose it.

    I had the chance to play many times at Kukua Restaurant Beach Club and honestly it's one of my favorite wedding venue in Punta Cana. The place front to the beach is just amazing and the wedding planner, Bego, is doing a great job and will make your celebration, the dream you always thought... Hardly recommanded.

  • HDC Photo - Huellas del Caribe Wedding Photographers

    Beautiful venue, really private. Bego is an amazing coordinator.

  • Punta Cana Photographer Wedding Photographers

    What can I say about Bego that you cannot find online.. there's only good things about Kukua everywhere. She's AWESOME to work with. Her decor looks better every time and it is always a pleasure to photograph her venue. The service is on top of my list and the people working in there make this place an amazing spot to get married.
