UNIQUE & MAGNIFICENT:
You expect gourmet dining, elegant suite accommodations and attentive service from a luxury resort. You relish the privacy and peacefulness of an adults-only boutique hotel. And you enjoy the recreational options of having a private beach club, championship golf courses, and posh spa at your disposal. But did you realize you could have all those things at once – along with the convenience and value of all-inclusive pricing?
It all comes together at Casa Velas, an adults-only boutique hotel on the Marina Vallarta Golf Course in Puerto Vallarta, where gourmet meals, premium liquor and wine, 24-hour room service, use of the fitness center facilities, business center with fax and Internet, WIFI, and taxes and gratuities are included in a single price. It’s the only hotel in Puerto Vallarta to boast membership in the Leading Small Hotels of the World and Mexico’s only adults-only all-inclusive golf resort to receive the AAA Four Diamond award.
The real point of difference at Casa Velas is its serene, exclusive setting – whether you’re dining in the elegant restaurant, relaxing at the spa, or kicking back by the pool. With Spanish-style architecture and expansive tropical landscaping, Casa Velas has the look and feel of a private hacienda. Located in an upscale residential neighborhood, the resort overlooks the lush greens of the Marina Vallarta golf course. Its 80 suites are decorated in traditional Mexican colors and furnishings, and each suite boasts a private terrace with plunge pool or in-suite Jacuzzi. White goose-down comforters, Bulgari amenities, and original artwork by Mexican artist Sergio Bustamante are among the other touches. For even more privacy and space, the 3,000-sq. ft., four-bedroom Presidential Suite has an oversize plunge pool, huge private terrace and Jacuzzi.
Emiliano, the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant,serves gourmet Mexican and international cuisine by Executive Chef José María Plazola. The Private Beach Club has a lunch menu with sushi bar and deli sandwiches and an Asiatic Bistro dinner menu, and both restaurants also offer healthy spa cuisine.
With special golf discounts at three nearby signature-designed 18-hole courses, Casa Velas is a golfers’ paradise. The 18-hole Marina Vallarta, which nestles against Casa Velas, offers 6,701 yards and a par 71 layout designed by Joe Finger. Vista Vallarta, a short drive from the hotel, has two courses. The easier Jack Nicklaus 18-hole course is a par 72 with 7,073 yards with grassy hillsides, a dense forest of Palm and giant ficus trees and natural creeks. The Tom Weiskopf course, also 18 holes, is a par 72 with 6,976 yards and a more extreme terrain of dense jungles, deep ravines and swift creeks.
Those who would rather spend time in the spa than on the course will retreat to Spa Casa Velas. Boutique in size, with just five treatment rooms, the spa has the same exclusive ambience as the rest of the resort, with the sound of trickling fountains, alluring aromatherapy fragrance and restful candlelit corridors. Despite its small size, it offers a robust array of services, including separate hydrotherapy areas for men and women, a spa boutique and beauty salon. Specialized spa packages cater to golfers, honeymooners, executives, and more, with luxe treatments that beatify, tone, relax, and invigorate. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the well-equipped fitness center offer pleasant views of the surrounding gardens and fountains to accompany your workout. Spa Casa Velas is a Leading Spa of the World.
