Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Stunning, private white-sand beach
  • Three distinct, beautiful pools
  • Ocean and garden views from every room and suite
  • World-class Jack Nicklaus golf courses
  • Excellent spa with world-class treatments
  • Three gourmet restaurants
  • Golf carts for on-site transit
  • 22 acres of beautifully groomed grounds

Cons

  • Far drive to downtown areas
  • Some beachfront areas are too rough, rocky for swimming
  • Fees for Wi-Fi, free in lobby

Bottom Line

This luxurious 120-room enclave is located in posh Punta Mita, and smartly sited on 22 acres amid undulating fairways and verdant tropical gardens. It's one of the most luxurious properties in the region, and every element is stunning: the three fabulous beachside pools, the acres of peaceful gardens, the ultra-luxurious spa, and the immaculate rooms that look straight out of a decor magazine. The stretch of white-sand beach on-site is interspersed with rocky coves, and there are a couple of pretty little islets just offshore -- as well as the Mariettas Islands, a marine preserve, a few miles farther out to sea.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Scene

Privacy, serenity, and luxury wrapped into one immaculately designed package

View From Lobby
View From Lobby

Behind commanding fences and guarded gates at the northwestern tip of Banderas Bay, Punta Mita is home to a pair of world-class golf courses, a collection of pricey condominiums and houses, some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico, and two luxurious hotels. One of these is the St. Regis, which offers an almost perfect luxury resort experience.

Every square inch of this property is designed to help guests achieve a sense of seclusion and relaxation. The 22 acres of perfectly manicured grounds feature towering palms, lush lawns, undulating pathways, and a sprawling infinity fountain that draws eyes from the lobby to the awe-inspiring white-sand beach below. The three spacious, immaculate pools are arguably the best in the region. And golfers will appreciate the two nearby golf courses designed by famed Jack Nicklaus. The lobby itself features a sophisticated mix of French, Mexican, and Indonesian design aesthetics, all mingling in a graceful elegance that doesn't distract from the omnipresent serenity that the resort as a whole exudes.

 Location

Hidden inside the gated, guarded enclave of Punta Mita, on a stretch of coast known as Riviera Nayarit

With its posh golf courses and high-end homes, Punta Mita is a sheltered, secure, and tranquil place pushing directly against a wild stretch of the Pacific Ocean at the northernmost tip of Banderas Bay. It’s about an hour northwest of Puerto Vallarta, in the Riviera Nayarit region, and feels completely removed and self-contained, which is clearly the intention here.

  • 45-minute drive to the airport
  • 5-minute drive to two golf courses
  • 20-minute drive to the small towns of Bucerias and Sayulita
  • 30-minute drive to Nuevo Vallarta
  • 1-hour drive to Downtown and Old Town Puerto Vallarta

 Rooms

89 guest rooms and 31 suites, distributed in low-rise buildings across 22 acres of gardens
