After the opening of important hotel projects in 2020, (Conrad Punta de Mita and One&Only Mandarina), Riviera Nayarit is ready to receive new luxury resorts that will be located in the Punta de Mita area, where its extensive beaches of soft, white sand stand out.

These are the hotel chains of the new luxury resorts that will open in our destination during 2021:

  • AM Resorts
    AM Resorts, belonging to the Apple Leisure Group hotel chain, announced the opening of Secrets® Bahía Mita Surf & Spa Resort (278 rooms) and Dreams® Bahía Mita Surf & Spa Resort (363 rooms).
  • Auberge Resorts Collection
    Auberge Resorts Collection will open the ultra-luxurious Susurros del Corazón property with 59 residential villas under the “bungalows by the beach” concept, which are designed with a marked boho-chic influence.
  • Marriott International
    Grand Matlali Hills Resort & Spa will adopt the all-inclusive concept under the Delta brand, the first resort of Marriott International worldwide. Other projects from this hotel chain include one Ritz-Carlton, one Autograph Collection and one Westin.
  • Iberostar
    The second property of this Spanish hotel chain (the first is Iberostar Playa Mita) envisions an exclusive 300-room beachside resort, with lush gardens, swimming pools and amenities.

Similarly, but still with no defined date for its inauguration, the opening of the Ritz-Carlton Reserve Riviera Nayarit is expected, located within the Costa Canuva development, the Centro Integralmente Planeado (CIP) (Integrally Planned Center) of FONATUR, which is currently under construction in Compostela, Nayarit. Right here, a Fairmont Hotels & Resort is being built, still without an opening date.

By 2022, Rosewood Resort & Spa is scheduled to begin operations in Mandarina, the most recent ultra-luxury development in Riviera Nayarit.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”
Bernhard Güth
Chef and partner

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."
