Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Mexico

An amenity-laden luxury resort in Punta Mita

On the white sands of Riviera Nayarit’s serpentine coast, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Mexico stands as an enticing hideaway that sees more than 300 days of sunshine a year. The beachfront hotel rests on 52 acres and boasts incredible surf, lush jungles and endless adventure.

After a 2020 renovation, the resort offers renovated casita-style guest rooms and well-appointed villas and beach homes, the newly refreshed free-form Nuna infinity-edge pool and the revitalized Tamai pool deck. Plus, there are 10 alfresco restaurants with ocean views (including the new Dos Catrinas, which carries more than 200 types of tequilas), a serene spa and two world-class Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses (including the Tail of the Whale 3-b hole, the world’s only natural island green).

It’s about 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, but feels a world away from the bustling cultural hub. Standout attentiveness from the staff is exemplified by the amphibious waiters who wade into the sea to deliver refreshments to thirsty guests playing in the waves. The resort provides unrivaled Four Seasons luxury infused with an authentic taste of Mexico.

Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Spread across one acre of indoor/outdoor space, Four Seasons Apuane Spa’s standout services integrate a slew of regional details. The wildly popular Punta Mita Massage features tequila-infused products made with traditional ingredients used by the indigenous Huichol people; the Hakali Massage uses heated, de-needled prickly pear cactus paddles to apply pulque (rich in vitamin C) from agave plants.
  • While the gym has a complete range of cardiovascular and strength training equipment, you might want to try outdoor fitness activities or yoga instead.
  • A host of water activities from surfing and scuba diving to snorkeling and swimming are signature adventures here, as is a quick trek to explore the gorgeous caves of the nearby Marieta Islands.
  • Golfers will want to tee up at on one of the resort’s two Jack Nicklaus-designed courses, which have ocean views and tropical landscaping.
  • Sunbathers will delight in two secluded beaches, the family-friendly lazy river; the adults-only Tamai Pool and the Instagram-worthy infinity-edge Nuna Pool overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Things to Know
  • For a memorable experience, release olive ridley sea turtle hatchlings into the ocean. These tiny Banderas Bay natives will make your heart warm as they embark on their life adventure.
  • Jaunts to nearby seaside towns and surrounding beaches are worth the time.
  • Dotted with great restaurants, upscale boutiques and beautiful people, hip Sayulita offers great surfing and a good dose of reggae chic.
  • Sleepy San Pancho is a quieter place to dip in for foodie finds and local crafts shopping, as well as a serene golden beach flanked by the Mexican jungle.
  • And the cobblestoned streets of Puerto Vallarta immerse visitors in culture, fine-dining and the region’s storied past.
The Rooms

  • Stay in 139 newly renovated modern Mexican casita rooms, 34 suites with living rooms and terraces with a plunge pool, or 32 villas and residences.
  • Inspired by the country’s natural wonders, such as the blue-footed booby, the guest rooms blend contemporary Mexican design with updated, fresh touches and native Huichol craftsmanship.
  • The patios evoke the feeling of a cozy open-air living room with breathtaking views of gardens, white-sand beaches, the Pacific Ocean and nearby islands.
  • Among the villas and residences, the Coral Beach House is a standout. The 7,965-square-foot, five-bedroom space designed by renowned architect Diego Villaseno strikes a balance between relaxing retreat and high-tech hideaway.
The Restaurants
  • The fishing village locale proves useful as seafood is served throughout the resort, from the diverse catches of the day dished in the resort’s eateries to fish tacos served poolside.
  • Expect fresh, citrusy ceviche at casual, alfresco Nuna Pool Bar, and craveable housemade salsas and classic Mexican fare at Dos Catrinas. Zarandeado, a local seafood specialty, is served beachside at the sleek, modern fish house Bahía by Richard Sandoval.
  • At 157-seat Aramara, the resort’s signature dinner-only restaurant, dine on Asian contemporary eats like spiced duck and sizzling steak cooked tableside on a hot rock.
  • The Punta Mita hotel also digs into local culture by pouring tequila — and lots of it. While informal tastings of the 125 regional brands are available at the bars, you can opt for private tastings arranged by the cultural concierge.
