Zui Spa at Renaissance Jaragua

The spa’s approach to physical and mental treatment relies on something it calls “intensity of experience.”

Scents and herbs are rediscovered in the city of Santo Domingo with the newly-opened Zui Spa at the Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel & Casino, which seeks to provide scented journeys of crafted mind-body-soul balance.

The spa’s approach to physical and mental treatment relies on something it calls “intensity of experience.” All its treatments have been designed so that each visit helps guests recover the day’s balance. Depending on the experience that is sought, guests can enjoy three intensity levels:

  • Renew: designed to offer special therapy sessions for intense stress moments and energy balance after a long day’s journey.
  • Restore: designed to balance body systems in depth to achieve changes in the treated area.
  • Relax: designed to be fast and effective therapy sessions and treatments that achieve immediate effect for anxiety relief.

Zui’s features include individual treatment rooms for maximum relaxation, treatment rooms for couples, an invigorating sauna for body refreshment, a welcoming jacuzzi bath area, a steam room and other recreation rooms.

Among other services, the new spa is characterized by its diverse rituals, called “Signature Journeys.” These are El susurro de la Cohoba (“The Cohoba’s Whisper”), consisting of exfoliation and body wrap treatments and a massage fueled with aromatic bags; La Yayama (“The Yayama”), a leg, neck, back & shoulder massage and eye treatment; and the Aura de mar (“Sea Aura”), an exfoliation and body wrap treatment, oxygenating facial, and massage. These “Signature Journeys” are named around elements of the indigenous culture in the Dominican Republic.

The name “Zui” comes from the name of the Mother God of the Jaragua chiefdom in pre-Colonial Dominican history.

Zui Spa at the historic Renaissance Jaragua is open from 8:00am to 9:00pm. For spa reservations, guests can dial (809) 221 2222, ext. 5124, or email zuispa(at)renaissancehotels(dot)com.
