At Punta Mita, you can drop anchor outside the small boat anchorage and take your dinghy ashore to enjoy all the benefits of a world-class resort.
Few places in the world do world-class service and aesthetic bliss as they do in Punta Mita. Nestled within a 1,500-acre private peninsula situated in the Riviera Nayarit, just north of Puerto Vallarta, Punta Mita is the type of place where heavenly dreams of idyllic tropical getaways turn to reality. The gated, ultra-luxurious locale is home to multimillion-dollar villas, 15 residential communities with a variety of real estate ownership options, two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, a tennis center with ten courts, and two top-shelf luxury hotel brands: St. Regis Punta Mita Resort and Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita.
Even during peak seasons, the area is so tranquil and intimate that one can hear the soft melodies of indigenous birds blend with the relaxing echoes of crashing ocean waves. It’s stunning views and private estates have enticed celebrities, tastemakers, and high-profile tech executives alike, including the Kardashian clan, luxe lifestyle-guru Gwyneth Paltrow, and Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates who, in 2014, invested in 48 acres of beachfront property along with the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita. The sanctuary-inspired community is a natural destination to unplug and rejuvenate. Over the years, it’s won multiple accolades to boot. This year, both Four Seasons Resort and St. Regis Resort are nominated for Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2018.
Punta Mita’s breezy, balmy climate is a year-round draw. Because it shares the same latitude as the Hawaiian Islands, gentle sea breezes keep the temperature comfortable during the dry, warm winters and through the hot, semi-humid summers. Hurricanes are rare in this stretch of Pacific Coast, and even during the wet season (June – September), rain typically occurs in the evening and clears up by morning. With an average of 345 days of sunshine per year, Punta Mita boasts one of the most pleasant climates in the world.
A favorite in Punta Mita, the annual American Express Punta Mita Gourmet & Golf Classic is a prestigious, high caliber celebration built around the best of local cuisine, tequila and mezcal, and golf. This year, from November 29 to December 2, the industry’s most prominent chefs, mixologists, and sommeliers will come together for a weekend of culinary excellence. At the same time, the event will highlight Punta Mita’s duo of world class Jack Nicklaus golf courses with legendary athletes including Lorena Ochoa, Craig Stadler, and Jorge Campos. Whether you’re a foodie, a golf enthusiast, or a visitor looking to socialize, the weekend long event is the perfect setting to socialize and connect.
