What’s better than a massive river- and bayfront resort with 20 dining destinations, two spas, two championship golf courses and a water park? The newest addition at such a resort, naturally. Grand Luxxe Celebrate Loft Nuevo Vallarta is precisely that: a freshly minted retreat, smack-dab in the middle of a private 300-acre community. When you’re not eating, drinking, golfing, lounging by the pool or enjoying the numerous daily and nightly activities, you’ll have a high-end studio to crash in, one of the only studio accommodations to offer kitchen facilities and a private terrace with a plunge pool.
It won’t be the only pool open to you as a hotel guest – Grand Luxxe offers pools that only other Grand Luxxe guests have access to, closed even to those from any of the other five Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta resorts. There are seven Grand Luxxe swimming holes, from one for adults only to one with a family-friendly activities stand. One of the two above spas also happens to be Grand Luxxe’s own and holds a hydrotherapy annex, along with treatment cabins and palapas. But the best perk of a getaway here isn’t any of these exclusive amenities or even an exclusive experience: It’s the knowledge that you’re at the only AAA Five Diamond Award winner in Nuevo Vallarta, and one of just 17 in Mexico.
Grand Luxxe accommodations are the most luxurious of any at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta. They’re spacious and airy; Grand Luxxe Celebrate Loft studios are located in the Loft tower.
Twenty restaurants: That’s how many you’ll find at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta, the tropical home to five hotels. From gourmet Mexican cuisine, Mediterranean meals, buffet breakfasts, burgers and Cuban fare to healthy snacks and seafood, the culinary offerings cover every kind of dish you could possibly crave. Have a sweet tooth? There are even a fro-yo spot and a crêperie.
Two wellness destinations reside on the Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta grounds. Spatium is Grand Luxxe’s own, inspired by the meeting of the natural and the classic with the cutting edge. It comprises indoor massage cabins and outdoor massage palapas, plus a steam room, Arctic plunges and Jacuzzis in its hydrotherapy annex; its menu runs from traditional wraps and scrubs to treatments like the Journey through Ancient Mexico, which incorporates medicinal herbs. Brio Spa lets you experience the French approach to relaxation, though European-inspired therapies aren’t the only things to expect from this escape. It’s got a Jacuzzi, a cold plunge pool, a sauna and an authentic Temazcal, too, where rituals are led by a Mayan shaman. A state-of-the-art fitness center and wide variety of group classes are available to you, for exercise needs.
The planned resort community of Nuevo Vallarta is home to a stretch of some of Mexico’s most stunning beaches, upon the Ameca River and Bay of Banderas, and is just a short drive from the popular Puerto Vallarta – known for its rich culture and bounty of watersports. Scuba-diving, snorkeling and fishing options are all in high supply, or you can take a history tour, eat out or shop for souvenirs. Stay at Grand Luxxe to choose from seven pools, or larger Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta to splash about at a water park, take golfing lessons at a par-70 Nicklaus course, play horseshoe, learn mixology and watch outdoor movies.
