The Review

Entering Taheima Wellness Resort & Spa is an experience worth traveling for. Just 15 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport in Riviera Nayarit, the new resort is completely focused on wellness and relaxation.

The tranquil grandeur of Taheima is immediately apparent. Rows of chaise lounges line a crystal-clear, undulating pool that runs nearly the entire length of the 133-suite property. The buildings are done in white, with rust-colored awnings and Spanish-style arched entryways.

Classy Café Maria, for example, feels like a place you’d find on a secret side street, and Bistro Silhouette, which has a menu by renowned chef Gerard DuPont (who also teaches some cooking classes on the property), is almost hidden unless you know to look for it up on the top floor.

The guestrooms are elegantly, modernly appointed, mostly in whites and creams, with some natural accents such as blond wood. The rooms have kitchens of varying sizes, and some even have private pools, plus bedroom air conditioning and washers and dryers. Everything from the color of the flowers to the scent of the soap can be customized.

Taheima is focused on wellness of all kinds — and with more than 25 classes a day, it’s easy to get in on the act. The Learning Center hosts classes in yoga, Spanish, painting, dancing and more. The spa is almost a destination in itself, using Eastern and Western techniques to provide restorative and spiritual treatments, from reflexology to cutting-edge nerve mobilization. There’s also a high-tech fitness center.

The resort’s full wellness experience includes a fitness diagnosis, a meeting with a nutritionist, plenty of classes and more — but sometimes a day of lounging by the azure pool in the warm Mexican sun is enough to make you feel just fine.

Poor, POor, POOR internet!

Great place for baby boomers if you do not need INTERNET! Very quiet, 12 minutes to beach, great pools and restaurant. Majority of guests are 50s to 80s so if you’re into partying this is not the place for your group ! If you need internet this is NOT the RESORT ! Otherwise it is a great resort.

BEWARE - Pay attention to Odd Sum

We also as Canadian's were comfortable in renting from Urbane - but have totally been "taken" by Urbane & Al & Jennifer. There is no spa or resort. Condo's that are being offered for rent are uninhabitable!
Totally unprofessional and a scam - "BEWARE" of who you rent from.

Beautiful, but beware

This is a lovely, well-located, quiet facility with a fabulous pool. Beware with whom you book. We booked a two-month vacation last February for a stay in Jan-Feb 2018. We paid a 50% deposit through Ostays located in Calgary, Canada. The company does not control the suite and has refused to repay our deposit. They did not even tell us about this. If we had not checked in June of this year, we would have arrived in PV and found no suite available and no return of funds. After 5 months of calls, e-mails etc, we have received nothing but denials. Beware. We trusted the company, largely because we are Canadian and felt comfortable with a Canadian company. Read any of my reviews and you will note that I am not a complainer, I usually write favourably and generously about most hotels, restaurants and tourist activities.
