Kukua Restaurant and Beach Club in Punta Cana is a beautiful place to get married! Not only that, but it’s an amazing place to enjoy your time in the Dominican Republic. It is located on a white sandy beach, right between the two amazing resorts Grand Bahia Principe and RIU Palace Punta Cana.
The beach club is family-friendly and offers a pool and garden landscape, as well as amazing dining for your wedding. Their catering services offer exquisite and authentic Caribbean food that not only looks good, but it tastes good too! Not to mention, the wedding planners, Mayte and Rachel, are beyond fantastic and will help you plan the most amazing wedding day!
Kukua Restaurant and Beach Club Reviews
This place has some seriously amazing reviews from their brides. Wedding Wire gives them a five-star rating. If you didn’t already know, Wedding Wire is a well-respected website that allows brides to rate their wedding experience based on professionalism, price, quality of service, responsiveness, and flexibility. So, when we say that they have received a five-star rating from over 90 brides, you know that it is a big deal.
Something that the brides liked most about getting married at Kukua was the responsiveness and communication skills of Rachel and Mayte, the wedding planners. This is an important quality for a wedding planner (and a wedding company) for obvious reasons – especially in Punta Cana when communication is slow at best.
We know for a fact that this wedding planning team is the best at what they do! Rachel will help you plan every little detail leading up to your wedding day, and Mayte will ensure things run smoothly when the big day finally comes! They’ll make everybody else’s job a whole lot easier, too. We simply love working with the Kukua team.
The Food at Kukua
A huge reason we love Kukua is for their divine cuisine! They offer some of the finest seafood in the area. Everything is fresh and caught daily. Not into seafood? There are a ton of other menu options to choose from. And your taste buds will be blown away by anything and everything you try.
You’ll meet with Mayte a couple of days before your wedding to do a tasting of your wedding menu and drinks. I’m sure you’ll love it all, but if you do want to make changes, it’s not a problem! They’re flexible, and they want you to be happy.
Not only does the food taste delicious, but Kukua staff also take great care with guests who have food allergies. They’ll let them know what’s safe to eat and what they should avoid. Talk about customer care and going the extra mile! I know for people with serious food allergies, this is a huge deal!
Weddings at Kukua Beach Club
The Kukua wedding team is excellent at planning weddings. They’re one of the best wedding venues in Punta Cana and our favorite for that very reason.
In fact, they specialize in weddings! They make every wedding unique because they understand every bride is unique.
They can make your wedding as classy or as extravagant as you like. It does not matter what size your wedding party is, they will make everyone (especially you) feel important. Plus, they will do their best to make your hopes and dreams come true.
Kukua Restaurant has many things to offer (besides the gorgeous beach club). They can handle all of the little details, including setup and decor, catering, transportation for you and your guests, the music, and of course, the flowers! In reality, you could have almost nothing to worry about because they can handle it all.
Past brides know that these are some of the best wedding organizers in the area and that they will make your wedding a day to remember.
The Wedding Planning Team at Kukua
Mayte and Rachel are two wedding rockstars! They’ll make the whole process seamless from start to finish. You’ll be surprised how easy planning a wedding can be when you have these two by your side.
Rachel is excellent! She’s available at almost any time of day and loves chatting with her brides. She’ll feel like an old friend as you discuss the details of your day. And she truly cares about the little details to make sure your wedding is amazing!
Mayte is a master decorator and designer. She will make your wedding day run seamlessly. She has a keen eye for details and is able to take every picture you send and incorporate it into the wedding design. She’ll completely customize your wedding to make sure it’s everything you want – and more.
To say that they go above and beyond would be an understatement. Kukua Restaurant and Beach Club is one of the few places that will customize every-single-thing for you. Many resorts send you a catalog with design options to choose from. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but sometimes you want something unique, and that’s okay. You’ll find that at Kukua!
The Bridal Suite at Kukua Beach Club
Something special about the Kukua Restaurant and Beach Club is their bridal suite. It is a beautiful, romantic, and rustic space for you and your bridesmaids to get ready. The very room seems to emanate a feeling of hope and love.
The furniture and decorations are mainly white (in the spirit of weddings, of course) and they have a gorgeous, vintage feel. Not only is this a great room to get ready in, but it’s also an excellent place for some pre-wedding photos.
The Groom’s Room
It may seem like the groom’s getting ready location isn’t as important as the brides, and maybe that’s a little true, but not completely. The groom deserves a special place to get dressed and prepare for the wedding ceremony with his groomsmen.
At Kukua, the groom can get ready in La Palapa. It’s a covered area overlooking the ocean where the guys can get dressed for the day. There’s a mirror and fans set up so they can stay cool while preparing. It’s the perfect spot for some getting-ready photos.
Wedding Ceremony Locations
Kukua offers two locations for your wedding ceremony: right on the beach or in La Palapa.
What more can I say about the beach? If you’ve dreamed of walking down the aisle in the sand, then this is the choice for you. It’s gorgeous!
If you choose La Palapa, you’ll get stunning views of the ocean without having to deal with some of the things that can make a beach wedding uncomfortable (like the heat, the wind, or the sand).
Both are great options, and you can’t go wrong with either one!
Types of Wedding Ceremonies Available
Kukua offers symbolic ceremonies, civil ceremonies, and even religious wedding ceremonies.
Most couples choose to have a symbolic ceremony and get legally married back home first, but it’s up to you how you prefer to do it.
There are a couple of things you need to know if you are planning on getting legally married at Kukua Restaurant and Beach Club. Check out Everything you Need to Know for a Civil Ceremony in Punta Cana for full details.
