Spain-based hotel company IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts will open IBEROSTAR Playa Mita in December 2013, the brand’s first property in the leisure destination of Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. The all-inclusive resort is located in Playa Mita on a beautiful beach facing the Pacific Ocean and is just 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta. Designed as a getaway for couples and families alike, IBEROSTAR Playa Mita will offer an extensive list of amenities for guests of all ages and interests.
"The addition of our Riviera Nayarit resort will make a great inclusion to IBEROSTAR’s portfolio of hotels throughout Mexico and will mark our first on the country’s west coast," said John Long, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, IBEROSTAR Hotels & Resorts. "It’s in an area that is an up-and-coming tourist destination and we’re excited to be breaking ground in the region. The development of the property further highlights our commitment to promoting and supporting tourism offerings throughout Mexico and to the development of several markets within the country."
The IBEROSTAR Playa Mita, a Premium category resort, features 452 guest rooms, including 120 oceanfront junior suites which are augmented with a dedicated concierge service, and two presidential suites. Guests can spend the day on the beach enjoying non-motorized water sports, lounge by the resort’s two pools, enjoy pampering and total relaxation at SPA Sensations, or get in a workout at the tennis courts and fitness center. Plus, golfers can hit the links at the Litibu Golf Club, conveniently located onsite. This 18-hole, oceanfront, championship course, designed by Greg Norman, wows with stunning views of the Pacific. The undulating greens will be a challenge for golfers of all levels and will serve as a perfect golfer’s paradise, whether it’s a family of sport enthusiasts or it’s a friends’ getaway. After hitting the greens, guests can cool down and continue to take in the unforgettable sights with a poolside drink at the swim up bar.
Known for its gourmet cuisine, IBEROSTAR once again shows its passion for dining with four specialty restaurants offering a variety of cuisine, ranging from Japanese and Mexican to Gourmet fine-dining and an American-style steakhouse. The resort also offers a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner; snack bar, several cocktail bars and 24-hour room service.
Evenings at IBEROSTAR Playa Mita will be just as fun as days in the sun, with different entertaining shows featured nightly at the resort’s theater, and an adults-only disco playing chart topping hits late into the night. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a more laid back evening of cocktails and conversation at the hotel’s main bar.
IBEROSTAR Playa Mita will also give special attention to its littlest guests. Children ages 4 – 12 can make new friends and lasting memories at the Kids Club, where they’ll play games, make arts & crafts, participate in sports and much more. The resort also offers a separate Kids Pool and Splash Park.
An idyllic location, top notch service and an abundance of luxurious amenities also make Playa Mita the perfect location for a sunset destination wedding, meeting or conference. With the flexibility of beautifully appointed indoor function spaces and outdoor, beachfront venues, the IBEROSTAR Playa Mita’s wedding planning and event staff will ensure that every special event is executed flawlessly.
