Escape to Mexico with Las Alamandas Luxury Retreat in Puerto Vallarta

- Melissa Mewdell,

Some of the most beautiful scenery in the world can be found along Mexico’s Pacific coast. If you’re so inclined to see this gorgeous coastline in peaceful luxury, Kiwi Collections recommends staying at Las Alamandas Resort.

Las Alamandas is about half way between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, and is located within a 1,500-acre private paradise of lush tropical gardens, exotic birds and endless white-sand beaches. This luxury resort in Mexico is really intimate, with only six villas, accommodating a maximum of 30 guests.

The resort is managed like a private estate where guests are meant to feel completely at home, and each room is decorated in jewel-like Mexican colors, hand selected by owner/developer Isabel Goldsmith-Patiño.

Las Alamandas’ full-service restaurant, Oasis, treats guests to elegant meals right by the Ocean. The menu includes quite a few Mexican dishes, and all of the ingredients are fresh, with fish and seafood brought in daily from local fishermen. Of course, many of the fruits and vegetables served are actually grown organically on the resort’s property.

Las Alamandas Luxury Resort MexicoGuests can also enjoy the 60-foot freshwater pool, found right alongside the ocean and “La Palapa” Beach Club — adjacent to the pool to give sunbathers a break when they need shade, and a drink.

If our word isn’t good enough, Las Alamandas is a highly recommended luxury resort by others as well. It was named one of the “top 20 international hideaways” and the top hideaway in Mexico by Andrew Harper’s 2008 Hideaway Report, and has been featured by the New York Times, Forbes, GQ, Town and Country Magazine and more!

Make a trip to Las Alamandas one of your New Year’s resolutions. Trust us — you won’t be disappointed.
