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
We were a bit worried about traveling to Mexico but we need not worry as the staff here are amazing! They arranged for us to be picked up in a beautiful SUV and traveled the 45 minutes in no time with Felix. You can pay with a credit card so no need to have peso's . The resort is beautiful and only 120 rooms i think so it's very roomy. The pacific here is very calm --we did not play golf because it's expensive at 300 dollars off season.
We went into the village and walked back and also walked to the four seasons resort.
we had a butler 24/7 which was very wonderful and who know i needed one.
Our room was beautiful and overlooked ocean. I really can't say anything bad --enjoy , relax and rehab --very nice spa there, and also a gym !
Extremely well managed resort, everyone is friendly and accommodating. The campus never gets crowded, even at full capacity. Great restaurants, shuttle services, top golf, health club and bungalow lodging with private pools. If you can’t relax here - you need to be sedated...
This was our best spring break vacation!
This was our very first experience with the St Regis and we were impressed!
The attention to details and how they anticipated our needs was amazing.
Everyone was hard working and went out of their way to care for us.
Our kids loved the kids club so much that they wanted to go all day!
The spa was amazing . We did a private couple retreat and it was one of the best we have had experienced.
We also did our family portrait with Eminence Photograhy and they came out breathtaking! We bought the biggest package cause the photos were that good!
Must try the Friday BBQ beach dinner!
Will def go back !!
