The Luxury Opened January 2009, the St. Regis Punta Mita sits within a quiet palm grove about a 45 minute drive north from Puerto Vallarta on Mexicos rapidly developing Riviera Nayarit (one of our Top 10 Value Destinations for 2010). Out of the 89 light, airy guestrooms (pictured), 71 claim views of the sea, and all feature a bounteous 600-square-feet, terrace with outdoor shower, in-bath flat-screens, and Provence-meets-Mexico décor manifested in wood-beam ceilings, hand-crafted onyx furnishings, and unique accessories like antique mirrored trays (prompting Architectural Digest Mexico to give it a recent nod for best commercial design). What else is there to expect? Three infinity pools, personalized butler service, and a standout Remede Spa where treatments are lavishly accompanied with truffles and champagne.
The Value This year, September 16 (not Cinco de Mayo, contrary to popular belief) marks the 200th anniversary of Mexican independence. In honor of the historic celebration, the hotel is offering an enticing Bicentennial Savings package that knocks down costs by 32 percent. Four night stays receive one night free, plus a $200 food and beverage credit, while those who bed down for seven nights will only pay for five and receive a $300 credit. Rates start at $480/night and are available now through December 22.
