The St Regis Resort Punta Mita is nestled on a pristine cove on the Pacific Coast of Mexico north of Puerto Vallarta, in a 1500 acre resort and residential community in the Riviera Nayarit. The hotel was designed to provide modern 5 star amenities in a relaxing old – Mexico Hacienda style.
The sloping site was re-contoured to maximize the ocean views from every unit and all public spaces. The lobby area is in a gracious Hacienda-style building, showcasing handcrafted elements and natural materials, approached via a graveled courtyard. The 120 guest rooms and suites were laid out in a series of 4-plex buildings with recessed individual entries connected by traditional covered walkways through quiet courtyard gardens with guest privacy and comfort in mind. They feature traditional broad beam / clay tile ceilings and outdoor showers. The 10,000 sf spa was designed with views of the Punta Mita coastline, and was recently designated as Best Luxury Wellness Spa in North America by World Luxury Spa Awards.
