These just might be the swankiest surf-friendly digs around, tucked amid two golf courses and lushly landscaped grounds on the Riviera Nayarit. Rooms and suites start at a massive 600 square feet with natural wood ceilings, marble and terra-cotta-tiled floors and glass doors opening onto garden- or ocean-view terraces (some with their own pool and Jacuzzi). The barefoot elegance feels inviting and is ideal for families. There are three infinity pools on-site with butlers to deliver a St. Regis-signature Bloody Mary or arrange for snorkeling tours should the azure-blue Banderas Bay inspire you. After taking the whole family on a PADI-certified diving tour, kids will enjoy the discovery walks at the children’s club, while parents can learn how to mix up their own creative libations in a cocktail class. Active types can swing from two Jack Nicklaus-designed, 18-hole courses, or play a round on the palm-fringed tennis court, while those in need of a break can lounge in the relaxation garden at the 10,000-square-foot spa. At sundown, the terrace at Carolina, one of three on-site restaurants, is the place to be — the Caribbean lobster with fennel mousseline is a must.
In the Area
World-class surfing, intimate fishing villages and Aztec ruins draw beach bums and seclusion seekers to Nayarit’s pristine Pacific coastline. A quick boat ride away from the resort will lead you to the Marietas Islands on the north end of Banderas Bay, where huge marine and bird sanctuaries are flanked by rocky caverns and archways. Rent a board through Mictlan Surf to hit the waves in nearby Punta de Mita. Traveling between December and April? Book a tour to see the great humpback whales that flock to the bay each year for mating season. Land-dwellers can explore the Sierra Madres on horseback or visit the manmade island village of Mexcaltitán, believed to be an ancestral homeland of the Aztecs.
How to Get There
My husband and I decided to use Studio EM Photography during our vacation in Punta mita. Scheduling our session was easy! Marco allowed us to do a last minute photo shoot. We were so grateful as we were departing the next day! Marco was excellent! Having a photo shoot with a hungry toddler is not easy. He made it fun and relaxed! He brought out some fun moments in our son and captured them beautifully in the photos! Our session was really quick but you would never know it. The next day before our departure Izchel showed us the video and photos from the shoot. They were outstanding. We use photographers in the states on special occasions and we have never seen such remarkable work. We got a package with the video and selected photos. Izchel made the process quick and easy. We got our photos before even arriving at the airport! I can't wait to book this service for our next vacation. What a great way to capture such fun, family memories!
The resort is beautiful and the staff could not be more helpful!!! The butlers were always available and were anxious to fulfill any request! The food was really good particularly at Carolina restaurant - muy bueno!
We also utilized the resort’s photographer - Studio Em Photography. They were great to work with and gave us lots of options. We leave with beautiful memories and gorgeous pictures!
Also make sure you don’t miss the Champagne Ritual held on Friday evenings!
This is the second time we've visited St.Regis Punta Mita. This time we came back with our 16 month old. The staff are so accommodating of both adults and kids. This place is impeccably run. We also had pictures taken with the in-house photographer and got amazing/very natural shots, a great memory of the trip. I really cannot fault anything at this beautiful hotel.
It's hard to describe what makes the Saint Regis Punta Mita. Yes it is a luxury hotel with beautiful infinity pools, white sand beaches and all the bells and whistles of a luxury hotel. But what makes of the Saint Regis something special in my opinion is a couple of things. First, its privacy, even if the hotel is 100% occupied, the way the rooms have been design and spread out throughout the property makes it feel it's never crowded. It feels intimate, exclusive and very personal. Second, the team, they simply spoil you. It's hard to capture the countless details the team at the Saint Regis had with us. From using our names, to taking care of our daughter everyday with mango popsicles, to taking care of any detail we needed and anticipating our needs. Again is simply hard to put in words, they spoil you, and they do so with incredible taste and thoughtfulness. In my opinion the human factor is what really sets apart their concept of service. I will definitely miss the beautiful sunsets by the beach while having dinner at Mita Mary, or the fantastic spa, or their awesome large rooms, but above all we will miss the team that has made our stay at the Saint Regis something very special and unique. Gracias!
Incredible!!! Greeted by Guillermo, the front desk mngr, upon arrival. Adults served margaritas, kids served popcicles & adorable gift bag of goodies. Golf-carted to our suit which is divine. One of the better views I've seen from a room. Butler service is fantastic. Beach/lounge chair service, complete w complimentary bottles of water, sunglass cleaning, and fresh fruit & popcicles, is so nice & convenient. Arrived "home" from dinner at Mita Marys to find our bed decorated beautifully & a cake wishing us a happy anniversary. Our kids are having an absolute blast. No crowds, no fighting over beach or pool chairs (a theme we became accustomed to in Hawaii), no lines. With only 120 rooms on a large piece of land you never feel cramped. We are only on day 2 1/2 and are already planning our next trip with friends. Thank you St. Regis for a migical stay, so far!!! Here's to the next 4 days.
