Paradise [par–uh-dahys, -dahyz] noun; A
As I was walking down the beautiful winding paths of the Four Seasons resort on my first day, I couldn’t help to smile; I finally had the feeling of serenity. Only being at the extraordinary resort for three days, I had a lot to do. I wanted to mainly lay on the beach like any lazy beach bum would, but I also wanted to explore and see what I could find in this lovely place. Although it’s tempting to do nothing more than eat, drink and nap in the sun, the resort encourages guests to do more.
The Four Seasons, Punta Mita is a luxurious golf resort that is surrounded by lush tropical gardens on a Pacific Coast peninsula. They have direct access to 2 PRIVATE white sand beaches, along with 4 amazing restaurants serving the best worldly cuisine, four bars slinging the best cocktails and spirits a vacationing person would only dream of, 3 gorgeous pools, and if you’re a tennis lover 10 tennis courts (I only saw two, I wonder where the other 8 courts could have been.) This beautiful resort is massive. Not to mention, they also include a spa with the best foot and deep tissue massages, a pair of beautiful golf courses to get your Pro-Golfing game on, a gym in case you don’t like working out on the beach, miles and miles of hiking trails, and a kids arcade room complete with a pool and air hockey table, a theater, and XBOX’s covering 90% of the walls (I played Madden 2015 for two straight hours one night, lol.)
The Four Seasons, Punta Mita is surprisingly all sophisticated and grown up, yet still down-to-earth and playful. Their landscaping has a jungle-esque, beachy-urban twist that is unusually whimsical. Their golf carts that taxi guests around the resort have beautiful paint jobs inspired by Mexican street art. They also have a fresh coconut stand on the beach where servers chop off the tops of the fruit with machetes and stick straws inside. Eduardo was my food and drinks server on the beach. He was the happiest and the sweetest. The Four Seasons have servers who would also pass out precious little drinks and snacks during the day on the beach that allow you to stay cool and refreshed. The cutest place on the beach was a cocoon-style pod swinging at the end of Manzanilla’s Beach, making it one of the most coveted places to relax.
The lodging is just as breathtaking as the property itself. They offer airy, spacious beach-inspired casitas, suites, and villas. The lodging views consist of the beautiful garden landscape to hillside villas nestled into the beautiful Punta Mita hillside that provides panoramic views of the Pacific and the Sierra Madre. They also have magnificent penthouses, suites, and villas that let you experience seamless indoor-outdoor living in a blissful spacious home away from home. They all offer free Wi-Fi in the rooms along with private bars and living areas.
It feels nothing like a luxury resort and everything like that unassuming local spot you fall in love with during a cute stroll on a beach.
The Four Seasons, Punta Mita is 26 miles or 42 km from Aeropuerto International de Puerto Vallarta airport.
