I LOVED having my destination wedding at Kukua! When I was originally planning my wedding and considering doing destination, it seemed really daunting. HOWEVER, working with Kukua made it SO EASY! They take care of EVERYTHING! They leave no stone unturned, every single finishing touch is accounted for. We started planning our wedding over a year out and then COVID hit, we didn’t think it was going to happen but luckily travel restrictions lifted and we were able to have our October 2020 wedding. But let me tell you, it would have been 100x harder without Rachel’s help, she was IN THE LOOP about the constant changing travel requirements, to make sure brides and guests are aware. Rachel gives out so much valuable information to her brides (during COVID and non-COVID) and I can’t stress how valuable she is, just another reason why you should pick Kukua if you want to get married in Punta Cana.
We had such an amazing time, I wasn’t stressed at all during the wedding or leading up to it because they really take control and make sure everything is right. I can’t stress how much that helped the whole wedding planning process. They aren’t going to try to surprise you with hidden fees or anything last minute extra either, they are very honest and upfront, and are as flexible as they can be. AND THE FOOD IS AMAZING! I actually dread most wedding food because its usually bland, but dang Kukua really knows how to serve up the flavors. We had surf & turf and it was such a great meal, our guests were raving! Rachel and Mayte are truly angels from heaven. Rachel will help you go through item by item of all the things you want at the wedding and make sure that you have the best day ever, and she is genuinely passionate about making her brides HAPPY, at any cost! I love that there is a dedicated Pinterest that brides can look through to see inspiration from past weddings. It also is super important that they have a lot of connections in the area so if something goes off the rails, they can fix it or help reassure you that everything will be OK. They have fantastic recommendations for vendors in the area too. Not to mention, Mayte is a wedding design magician! She is truly talented and put together a truly beautiful day and is one of the sweetest souls you will ever meet. I loved having my wedding at Kukua, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day, it definitely exceeded my expectations! 10/10 recommend! Wedding planning is stressful, but Kukua makes it EASY!Sent on 01/29/2021

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!

I Didn’t Know Planning A Wedding Would Be This Easy
Understandably, some people don’t want to read a long review. The short version is: Kukua is absolutely amazing and if you’re planning a destination wedding to Punta Cana you shouldn’t be considering any other venue! Kukua is AMAZING from the venue, service, food, drinks, decor ... EVERYTHING.Sent on 09/11/2020
For those that want EVERY detail, I also have you covered. We started our search and, like most couples, compared venues once we decided on Punta Cana.
Responsiveness: Without a doubt, Kukua was the most responsive of all the venues we were considering. You can thank Rachel of Kukua for that. You’ll get the same attentive, detail oriented service from Rachel from the very beginning of the planning stages until you walk the aisle. You can bet on getting responses the very same day; most often within a couple of hours of your emails. You’ll also have several calls to make sure all your worries are set to rest.
Service: Spectacular! Rachel is the voice over the phone that prepares you for Kukua and once you arrive at the venue you’ll notice everyone you interact with is as kind and attentive. It’s literally the culture of the venue. Maite was amazing during our tasting and took notes to prepare for our wedding date. The waiters were spectacular and so attentive. Always smiling and always ready to help you out in a possible way.
Venue: Beautiful! You’ll literally be getting married in paradise. The venue is located on the beach and has the perfect beach breeze you hope for. When we walked into the bride/maids “getting ready” room our jaws dropped. We couldn’t believe how gorgeous it was. There will also be several options for your layout depending on where you want to get married (beach or not), if you want to be seated facing these beach (or prefer you guest face the beach), etc.
Food/Drinks: DELICIOUS! I’ll start with two words: Passionfruit Mojito! It’s no wonder just about everyone talks about it. It was so good it will be one of our signature drinks! All the food was cooked to perfection. Your guests will not go hungry. Rachel was great running through our food items and letting us know where we picked too much food for our guest count. This shows a lot about Kukua. They aren’t in it to just make money. If they can save you money, keep you on budget, and still give you the wedding you’ve dreamed of ... THEY WILL.
Closing Words: I really don’t know how anyone chooses anything besides Kukua. I’m a a hard critic, but Kukua has left nothing but positive memories I tell everyone about. We are excited to have chose Kukua and you will too! Get married in paradise - get married at Kukua!
Kukua Beach Club & Restaurant's reply:Andres,
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.
Beautiful venue, really private. Bego is an amazing coordinator.
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.
