Boutique hotel on a serene hillside with a spa, restaurant and infinity pool, 35 minutes from Puerto Vallarta
Tucked away on a hilltop over Banderas Bay, Matlali offers 40 villa-style suites — and unforgettable views. Each suite features contemporary design, scent and pillow menus, iPod docking stations, Boca Terry robes and 260 to 1,112 square feet of space. Many have full kitchens, separate living areas, private balconies and individual pools. The Raixes open-air restaurant serves Mexican fusion dishes with starters such as chile relleno served with ceviche and passion fruit and entrées like grilled shrimp with garlic and Mexican chili. The Makawé Spa features a Zen-inspired steam room, a plunge pool and six private indoor-outdoor treatment rooms. Guests can also lounge on the sundeck next to the infinity pool or Jacuzzi.
In the Area
Shuttles are available to the village of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, where visitors can explore a traditional farmers market selling produce and handicrafts, or head to the Eva Mandarina Beach Club, a Mexican seafood restaurant located in the sand about 10 minutes from the hotel. Here, guests can also try a variety of water sports, including sailing, surfing and snorkeling. The area is also home to six premier golf courses – many with gorgeous ocean views. For sunset dining, Serendipity restaurant in Punta Mita offers fresh seafood dishes, and if you’re seeking a night on the town, a variety of pubs and bars can be found in Bucerias.
