Mexico has certainly been getting its share of bad press in recent months, but I’m happy to report a piece of good news in the form of the Imanta Resort in Punta de Mita, one of the Nayarit region’s stunning new destination spots.
Having traveled to Punta de Mita recently, I can tell you it is not only convenient and very safe, but also incredibly beautiful. Only 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, a short car ride from the airport will have you basking on unspoiled beaches, enjoying total seclusion and relishing ultimate luxury.
Imanta is a unique resort adjacent to the Selva de Valle national biosphere resort and truly evocative of the natural and cultural locale. Inspired by hospitality and harmonious blend of amenities and natural beauty found in Thailand resorts, Imanta means “magnetic attraction,” and the native Mexican proprietors hope that exhilarating bond will make it difficult for guests to depart.
Recommended Resort: Imanta Resort in Punta de Mita. Intimacy is the key here…only 11 oceanfront rooms occupy 250 acres devoted to the property of lush jungle and stunning coastline. There are also a handful of spectacular oceanside suites for the ultimate experience.
Amenities include a gym, pool, spa, library and boutique, and beach pavilions along the ½ mile private sands. With such a small number of accommodations and guests around, you can be assured the service is dedicated and impeccable.

Check Out: Adventures. The resort’s special location makes it an ideal playground for outdoor activities. Highlights include sailing, yachting or swimming with dolphins along the pristine coast, surfing, kayaking, fishing, kitesailing, hiking, yoga, and horseback riding.
The resort staffs Adventure Specialists and tour guides to make your experience that more personal. After a long day of fun and working up an appetite, enjoy the fresh, artisanal ingredients served at Tupika, and enjoy a nightcap at the romantic outdoor bar setting of the Observatorio.
Don’t Miss: Whether in the seclusion of a massage suite, the privacy of your suite, or out in an exotic beach or jungle setting, a treatment from the Imanta Spa will awaken the senses.
Try the Prehispanic hot stone or Reflexology massage experience before heading out into the jungle to an Aztec-inspired temascal, or sweat lodge, to melt your troubles away.
