The Lowdown

The feeling at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is larger than life. Guests arrive into a soaring palapa lobby before being ushered off to suites that measure more than 1,000 square feet. The roster of fitness classes is impressive, ranging from Pilates to salsa dancing, and the spa, a member of Leading Spas of the World, is the largest in the region. The amenities are generous too, with gourmet dining options, unlimited premium liquors, a 24-hour concierge, non-motorized water sports and even scuba classes included.

In the Area

With so much to do on the property, there’s little incentive to leave. But guests who venture out can take canopy tours, fly on zip-lines, swim with dolphins, go whale watching, snorkel, shop and stroll along El Malecón in Puerto Vallarta, and take scenic sunset or dinner cruises in Banderas Bay. The fairways of the Marina Vallarta and Vista Vallarta golf courses are just 15 minutes from the resort.

Incredible Wedding Experience

After searching for destination wedding locations, my wife and I stumbled across Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit online and could not imagine getting married anywhere else. Everything from scenery to service to accommodations are truly beyond belief. We had the esteemed pleasure of working with Beatriz as our wedding coordinator, along with Jazmin and Andrea as secondary points of contact.

We had always heard of how stressful planning a wedding could be, but in all honesty, planning a wedding with Beatriz and Grand Velas was easily the most stress-free experience we've ever had. We felt so at-ease and confident they would take care of us, our guests, and knock it out of the park! We took a chance and put down a deposit before visiting the property and it was a gamble that certainly paid off!

If you are seeking to host your wedding at a resort with exquisite food, remarkably attentive staff and breathtaking views from anywhere on the property, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is for you!
