Casa Velas

Puerto Vallarta’s adults-only boutique hotel
Puerto Vallarta is typically known as a family-centric destination, but the luxury boutique hotel Casa Velas eschews that notion. For starters, it is an adults-only property, an enticing destination to book when it’s time to get away.

Ideal for honeymoons, weddings, anniversary celebrations or getaways with good friends, this hacienda-style hotel is located 15 minutes from Puerto Vallarta’s airport. It is situated inside Marina Vallarta’s golf course and near the beautiful Táu Beach Club, where hotel guests have preferential access.

The lovely spa and the fine dining at Emiliano restaurant place this all-inclusive resort on another level. Visual pleasures are aplenty, too. Lush botanical gardens, koi ponds, swaying palm trees and a glistening pool with Balinese beds serve as the perfect backdrop for unforgettable moments.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The bountiful botanical garden surrounding the hotel not only powers many of the property’s culinary pursuits, but its essence can be found in some of the treatments at the spa, too.
  • The stunning lagoon-like pool is where you will find the aptly named swim-up Aqua Bar, just the place to while away an afternoon.
  • Specialty pop-up events often happen because of the chefs and bartenders. These affairs include tequila tastings, wine and cheese tastings, margarita samplings, martini tastings and casino night.
Things to Know
  • This scene is begging for a romantic moment — in addition to the food, Táu Beach Club's big feature is its vantage point of snap-worthy sunsets.
  • Casa Velas is immersed in the Marina Vallarta golf course, so it is an ideal spot to enjoy the greens and practice your swing.

The Rooms
  • Those who travel to Mexico frequently are accustomed to accommodations with ample space, but Casa Velas goes above and beyond with Master Suites starting at almost 500 square feet and a Presidential Suite that is 5,500 square feet.
  • There are 80 suites total and many have their own outdoor plunge pools and Jacuzzis.
  • A traditional Mexican aesthetic is adhered to throughout the suites, which have a color palette of gold, white and burnt orange and are punctuated with pieces by Mexican sculptor Sergio Bustamante.
  • Standout, all-inclusive amenities include L'Occitane products, the mini bar and snacks replenished daily, a beach bag for in-house use, and a pillow menu so you can get just the right amount of fluff.
The Restaurants
  • Most of the culinary action centers on the à la carte restaurant Emiliano, which serves Mexican dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner either inside or on its patio.
  • Also on the dining front, the Táu Beach Club is a tranquil beachside option. With a swimming pool, cabanas and lounge areas, this retreat serves seafood specialties and cocktails such as martinis, daiquiris and margaritas.
  • And if you seek a new flavor after a few days, Casa Velas guests also have dining privileges at nearby sister resort Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, which has five on-site restaurants.
