Scene

Beachfront luxury chain resort with a laid-back and playful vibe 

Stepping onto the property of The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort feels like stepping into a design magazine. The interior decor is tasteful and immaculate, from the couches in the lobby to the plush fabrics and stunning touches in the guest rooms and suites. The luxury doesn’t end there, though. The resort’s outdoor areas are as beautiful as its interiors, with dramatic cascading pools that lead from the lobby to the beach, and palm trees and lush tropical vegetation at every turn. The 120 rooms are spread out in 33 small casitas with terra-cotta roofs that house just four rooms each, creating a sense of privacy for every guest. The combination of that serenity with the pampering of butler service even in entry-level rooms makes The St. Regis one of the most luxurious lodging experiences in the area.

While everything is refined, The St. Regis proves that luxury doesn’t have to be stuffy or uptight. The property balances posh with playful, thanks to features like inflatable unicorns in the private pools of the high-end suites, a fun beachfront bar set in a vintage boat, and a designated kid-friendly area where the little ones can play the day away. There’s also an adult-only area and a beach club area that’s open to the residents of Punta Mita, giving guests three distinct options for finding the right balance of activity and relaxation. The different areas are connected by stone paths that wind through tropical plants, and it’s all anchored by a stunning stretch of white sand beach below. For guests who want a taste of the good life with a laid-back vibe and stunning surroundings, The St. Regis is an excellent choice.

Location

Inside the posh, gated community of Punta Mita, surrounded by rolling golf courses and beautiful white-sand beaches 

Featuring posh resorts, upscale golf courses, and high-end homes, the gated enclave of Punta Mita is one of the most secure, serene, and exclusive areas in the region. Jutting into the Pacific Ocean, Punta Mita sits in a privileged location on the westernmost end of a lush oceanfront peninsula known as the Riviera Nayarit. The St. Regis enjoys a prime location amid Punta Mita’s beautiful real estate, perched on a huge stretch of unspoiled white-sand beach with views of the Marieta Islands in the distance. The small town of Punta de Mita is a 12-minute drive from the resort. Driving along the northern edge of the peninsula will take travelers to the lively and colorful surfing town of Sayulita, about 35 minutes away. Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport is a 54-minute drive away. Downtown Puerto Vallarta can be reached by car in about an hour and 15 minutes.

Rooms

Stylish, upscale rooms and suites with balconies and outdoor showers, plus luxurious villas with private pools 

Spread out in individual terra-cotta-roofed casitas that house just four units, each with a private entrance, the resort’s 120 rooms feel homey and secluded. They're done with beautiful design touches like exposed wood beams, tile floors, and elegant pops of color. The entry-level rooms are the Deluxe Rooms, which feature air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and iPod docks, as well as minibars and snacks (for a fee). Huge walk-in closets come equipped with robes, slippers, safes, irons, ironing boards, and umbrellas. Warm marble bathrooms with rustic light fixtures offer deep soaking tubs, hairdryers, and Laboratoire Remede toiletries from the resort’s spa. Huge outdoor showers are a nice tropical beach vacation touch. Siding glass doors lead to balconies with wooden dining tables and cushioned sunbeds. Retractable screens offer protection from mosquitos while still allowing guests to enjoy the sunset. Even entry-level rooms come with free 24-hour butler service, which includes coffee and tea delivery. 

Deluxe Garden View Rooms look out onto the resort’s lush grounds, but still offer partial ocean views. Deluxe Ocean View Rooms offer full ocean views. Junior Suites add sitting areas, and again are offered with either partial or full ocean views. The one-bedroom Deluxe Suites feature separate living rooms.

The top-of-the-line options at The St. Regis are its posh Luxury Villas set on the beach, which come with one, two, or three bedrooms. The Villas include dining tables for six people and full kitchens with private entrances that allow discrete butler access. Terraces sheltered by tropical plants offer hot tubs and private pools that come with large inflatable unicorn pool floats. The three-bedroom villas offer over 3,000 square feet of living space, making them ideal for families or groups.

Features

Six inviting restaurants and bars, plus three outdoor pools, a luxurious spa, two golf courses, and tennis courts

The St. Regis offers the wide range of world-class amenities for families and couples. The property is separated into three distinct areas -- Arecas is adult-only, Las Marietas is family-friendly, and the Beach Club is open to outside residents of the gated Punta Mita community.

There are six options for eating and drinking. The relaxed Sea Breeze Restaurant offers Latin and European fare for lunch and dinner, and features a lively open-air bar under a soaring thatched roof that offers tequila tastings and hookah. Las Marietas Restaurant and Bar in the family-friendly section of the resort serves Mexican food for breakfast and lunch. The posh Carolina Restaurant, serves critically acclaimed upscale Mexican fare.

On the more casual front, Altamira Cantina Gourmet features a menu inspired by Mexico’s famous street food culture, and it's open for lunch and dinner. The fun Mita Mary Boat Bar & Bistro sits in a refurbished boat directly on the sand, complete with plenty of bar stools and tables overlooking the ocean. Near the ocean in the Arecas section is the chic outdoor Oyster Champagne Bar for the adults. Vegan menus are offered at many of the restaurants, and there’s a regular avocado bar on the beach. A lovely fire pit area hosts Champagne barbecue nights, and there's regular live entertainment. Carrying on a time-honored ritual that takes place at all St. Regis properties, there’s a weekly Champagne sabering at sunset. There’s no all-inclusive package offered, and food and drinks tend to be on the pricey side. Room service is available 24/7.

Each of the resort’s three areas features a beautiful two-tiered infinity pool with a hot tub. The white-sand beach is vast and lovely, offering water sports including kayaking, surfing, and paddleboarding, as well as a program through which guests can adopt coral in the surrounding islands. White hammocks are strung between trees, and plenty of plush cabanas dot the sand, with white curtains flowing in the breeze.

The luxurious Remede Spa features a fitness center and offers a wide range of massages and treatments (fees apply), including tanks for flotation therapy. Within the gated Punta Mita compound are additional amenities that guests of The St. Regis are welcome to use for a fee, including two world-class, Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses and a tennis center with 10 tennis courts. Parking is free, as is Wi-Fi access throughout the property.
