Celebrate Love in Riviera NayaritWords by Lauren Ertl
Take a short drive northwest from the Puerto Vallarta airport and you’ll be in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, but specifically on the exclusive peninsula of Punta Mita. Known for its posh resorts and private vacation home communities, this area offers peak luxury. The perfect place to have your bachelor or bachelorette parties, host your destination wedding or enjoy your honeymoon on the peninsula is at the recently-opened Conrad Punta de Mita.
Arrive at the lobby and immediately be enticed in by sleek, modern architecture and an archway framing the gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. Feel your worries and stress melt away as you pass through the wooden threshold into the luxurious lobby/bar area.
After checking in with the friendly front desk staff, you are briefed on the layout of the property and shown to your stunning room. With state of the art furnishings and finishes, each room boasts breathtaking views of the turquoise waters. The beauty of the oceanview beckons you to get in a swimsuit and venture out for tapas and a custom cocktail (or two) by the beach or by one of the three swimming pools on property.
When you’ve soaked up enough rays, make sure to head to the cutting edge indoor/outdoor Conrad SPA to book your spa treatments. On the menu, you’ll find a wonderful collection of rituals and therapies inspired by ancient traditions, local flora, medicinal herbs, essential oils and extracts. You may also want to build some extra time into your plans to experience the relaxation spaces that are made to nurture and rejuvenate the soul. Also located in the spa is a full hair and beauty salon, ideal for bridal party pre-wedding prep.
Once you’ve gone up to your room and taken a refreshing afternoon siesta, satisfy your dinner cravings at one of the outstanding restaurants on property. Codex, Arbol and Mezquite offer a variety of cuisines from traditional and regional Mexican plates to American staples. No matter where you choose to dine or what you order, be prepared to taste some of the best food of your life.
The next day sit down with a concierge and select from a long list of curated experiences or customizable experiences to take part in. Perhaps you want to take your wedding crew to the local fish market and hop on a charter boat tour from there. Mike’s Charters and Tours can take care of your group by never letting the cervezas runout and teaching you just what makes this region of Mexico so special. While cruising the shoreline you might spot overhead a large seabird native to the area called the brown booby. If you do, you’ll certainly have an interesting story to tell of seeing brown boobies in Mexico (joke courtesy of Mike’s Charters and Tours.)
At night indulge in the “Agave Experience” where a group of two to six people gets to taste Mexico’s finest tequilas and mezcals with specially paired tapas. Hear dramatic and beautiful stories behind the making of each specialty bottle as you are warmed with every mind-blowing taste of the agave-derived alcohols. Warning: this experience will be sure to leave you awestruck (and maybe even a little bit tipsy.)
Truthfully, the experiences to be had and amenities to enjoy at Conrad Punta de Mita are plentiful and will leave you with unique and unforgettable memories.
Speaking of unforgettable memories, if you did so choose to host your destination wedding on the property, the resort’s dedicated team would be on-hand to help you plan and execute a day to remember. Find the resort's curated wedding packages and more information about hosting your wedding at Conrad in their wedding brochure.
Whether it’s the pre-wedding party, the wedding itself or the honeymoon that brings you to the Conrad Punta de Mita, your experience will surely leave you wishing to come back soon!
