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
I’d like to make mention first off of Manuel at the SeaBreeze restaurant. He took time everyday at breakfast to converse with us as well as entertain my sisters baby. Coming up with make shift toys pushing him around the high chair making him dance the list goes on. He should be awarded for employee of the month! I also want to shout out to Victor who worked day and night and his attention to what you liked was so appreciative. His smile was also contagious he worked the pool as well as my brothers wedding and had the same energy both day and night. Another nomination for EOM. He was very helpful too with my family thank you Victor!
Ricardo, Juan Carlos, Carlos and Juan were also individuals that stood out with such a friendly and warm smile assisting and whatever way. Love them all and loved seeing them each day. They provided excellent customer service. I had lost the hostess name at Seabreeze but she was so welcoming to all loved seeing her everyday! Shout out to Gustavo in the spa as well would recommend him for hair and makeup as he made it look so effortless. I’ve never been to a resort where there are so many phenomenal people working so hard and providing such amazing service in such a gorgeous property.
The food/drinks at the pool and tacos at the boat where great. Loved getting the daily coconut popsicle as well as the other treats at the pool. SeaBreeze had many great options and amazing buffet as well. I hope to return to this gorgeous property with amazing grounds, pools,views,rooms,food and service. It’s all about the people! Thank you for many great memories!
We stayed at the St. Regis Punta Mita for 4 nights. I’ve travelled the world and this hotel did not fail to impress. From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out everything was complete perfection. The property is gorgeous, the service was incredible, and the butlers were stellar. That bed was one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in! And the outdoor shower! Wow! We didn’t have a single bad meal. I will miss the amazing morning coffee on our beautiful balcony. Definitely 5 star all the way. Erika the front desk manager went above and beyond to make sure our stay was incredible and we thank her so much!
My sister and I went for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and our experience could not have been better. This property is gorgeous, the service excellent, food delicious and the spa first class.
We will be back.
