    Excellent Wedding Experience

    I couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. The entire staff was wonderful, especially the GM. They made our event truly special. Even our guests raved about the fantastic experience. I would highly recommend Zota for any special occasion!

    Great service, amazing place

    Our wedding experience at Zota was simply amazing. The amenities, location, service, and Kara's attention to detail as our liaison was phenomenal. We are so pleased with our wedding and the relationships we developed at Zota. We will be back. The service at the resort (from Barbara, Gia, Zack, and Jane) was phenomenal. Thank you!
