Imanta Resort in Punta de Mita, Mexico

Nature lovers will be exhilarated by the biodiversity that surrounds Imanta Resort. Perhaps that feeling is what led to Imanta’s name, which is Spanish for “magnetic attraction” – that indescribable rush that comes with falling in love. Bordering the 160,000-acre federally protected Sierra de Vallejo preserve on Riviera Nayarit, Mexico’s Gold Coast, low-profile villas made from recycled indigenous stone are incredibly spacious – most are 2,500 square feet, with even larger options available. Naturopathic spa treatments use ancient techniques and organic herbs grown in the property’s own garden.

Draw the shades to your bedroom and gaze out on the sparkling Pacific waters of Bahía de Banderas. Immerse yourself in the tropical forests – Mexico is home to a tenth of the world’s land species, so your chances of wildlife encounters are good. Dip your toes in tidal waters. Sip on a cucumber margarita while stargazing from the top of a tower lounge.

What an amazing, peaceful place in the jungle. We just returned from our 3-night stay at Imanta. This is a slice of heaven hidden in the jungle outside of Punta De Mita. The architecture is stunning in the quiet secluded resort. The Casas are large and well appointed not at all a typical hotel room. There are 2 restaurants serving wonderfully Mexican inspired dishes and fresh seafood. The staff at Imanta is so friendly and helpful. They are not on top of you but are available to get you what ever you might need, but leaving you space to enjoy the solitude. The Jungle Spa is an experience all on its own. It is an outdoor spa located in the jungle but still in range to hear the crashing waves on the beach. Cynthia, the Spa manager, is a very helpful and friendly to make you have a great experience. I cannot say enough about my experience at Imanta. I was blown away by its beauty and setting. If you are looking for a get away for a total recharge, look no further. I have to say a special thank you to everyone we encountered at the hotel. A few out standing people were, Rodrigo, who made sure our stay was perfect. Breakfast and lunch served with a smile from Ramon and Daniel. Dinner service with David and Antonio. Drinks at the Observatory with the drink master Gabriel and Osbaldo. For all of those whose names I did not get I also say thank you.

If you love the tranquil elegance of Aman Resorts you’ll love Imanta, which has the added wonder of being in the middle of a rain forest. Nature lovers will be awed by the sights and sounds of the jungle and ocean waves lapping the shore. This is a slice of heaven. Imanta is a gentle reminder of the beauty and fragility of our glorious planet. The resort was developed to grace the environment, built with materials sourced from the mountain, lots of stone and rock, beautiful tiled floors, bamboo dressed doors, furniture from locally sourced wood. A winding 20 minute drive from the nearest village through an enchanting forest, with 2 security check points. This is for those seeking distance from life’s cacophony. We stayed in a a jungle suite, a generous 1900 sq ft give or take with a massive luxurious bath, inviting soaking tub, 2 sinks 2 large showers, one outside in a private garden. The luxurious king bed and pillow menu were what you’d expect in a resort of this calibre. Surrounding windows and doors a steady reminder of your surroundings. A discreetly hidden TV which we never pulled from it’s encasement. Step outside to an infinity pool and lovely terrace complete with king lounger. For a change of scenery, there’s also a large infinity pool located at the observatory at the top of the resort. None of the suites are far from the beautiful private beach, just a short walk down for us. on a rocky path with guard ropes. The suites are sufficiently spaced apart with little chance of hearing other guest. It would be easy to spend your time in quiet solitude and never encounter another guest, with only 12 suites this is truly an intimate escape. Enjoy a gourmet dinner and drinks at the The Observatory, the best spot for views and the best dining experience in the area, foodies will not be disappointed. The beach is on a private cove You’ll have breakfast on the beach, walk the beach and watch fishermen bring in the catch of the day or take an ocean kayak out for awhile. Staff can arrange for spa treatments, nature walks, hiking tours, visits to local towns and other activities. One that we missed (sadly), was the baby turtle release, we’d arrived a week too late. Staff say it’s a must if you happen to be lucky enough to be there. Staff assistance is a quick phone call away. Staff is warm, welcoming and attentive, on par with any luxury resort I’ve visited. Special thanks to Rodrigo, Ramon, Rogelio & Abraham for their help and assistance and to the others whose names we can’t remember. If you need to de-stress this is the place for you. Imanta also offers 3 bedroom Casas and a Treehouse. The resort is an obvious spot for romantic honeymoons, couples renewing vows, corporate group gatherings or anyone seeking comfort in solitude. The multi bedroom suites would be great for familes with older children

This resort is amazingly beautiful. If you can't stay at the resort you can still go to the observatory and have dinner there. We stayed for about an hour at the observatory enjoying our drinks, nature, the birds singing and the beautiful views. In my opinion this observatory would be a perfect spot for a proposal. It is very romantic. We had dinner at their restaurant. We enjoyed abuelita soup and the tuna. The canelonis were not my favorite. For desert the chocolate lava cake was good. The staff at the hotel was extremely friendly. I would definitely come again!

My husband and I recently stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in the Jungle Deluxe Casa. First the highlights: - Amazing sunset views from rooftop bar. Highly recommend at least doing a dinner here just to see the views. -5 star Massive Luxury Rooms. I loved the infinity pool in our room. Only downside was that I wish it was more secluded - we were right next to another villa which blocked the view of the ocean and didn't make it feel like you were in the jungle or seclude. They have a couple villas further away with ocean view that I would recommend. I brought a raft that worked out well too for the pool. -rooftop pool during day was awesome because no one was there and bugs wouldn't bother you since it was too windy. - Spectacular fresh food. Very good portion sizes and love the catch of the day and fish tacos! - delicious margaritas. Note: drinks are pretty pricey so we picked up some liquor in duty free at airport before we came and drank this during day. Ramon we really liked - excellent massages. Little weird because it's not what you think of for a typical 5 star spa. It's outside in self made huts - wish they could add something extra to spa area (water feature ??) - isolation from people! You literally could go the whole trip with maybe seeing one other couple. Everybody keeps to theirselves. The reason why I didn't rate this property 5 stars is the service was not 5 stars. Some of the waiters don't speak English very well and it's very awkward. I would have to repeat my order 3-4 times and then the conversations they would try to have just didn't feel natural - just odd. I felt they were pushing us to do the hikes/activities when we said over and over we just wanted to relax. Also the activities are retardedly expensive - why do I want to rent a kayak for $150.00 when I can rent one at home for $15.00 or a jungle hike with drinks/food for $2500.00 - what ???? . They also nickle and dime you for everything. For example, when you go to lunch or breakfast and ask for water - they charge you even though you get free water in your room. You have to tell them only house water. And then to top it off - I was out taking a shower in my outdoor shower and a worker was literally staring at me while I was naked. I called the front desk and they said it wouldn't happen again but I just was shocked that they didn't do more. That would never happen at a four seasons- you don't send workers to work on a property next door without letting your guest know. The day before they were on top of the roof when we were in our pool. All in all, I still would recommend this resort if going to Puerto Vallarta - but get a more secluded room and call the front desk with any issues!

We had the opportunity to celebrate my husband'a birthday there last night. We started at the observatory for a cocktail and then continued to Chef Miguel's phenomenal restaurant. From start to finish the meal was well thought out and every dish was delicious. The most authentic evolved Mexican cuisine we have tasted. Why can't we have this kind of Mexican food in Los Angeles? The lamb Oso Buco literally fell off the bone and the spices were a melody of wonderful flavors utilizing chilies and local spices in a perfect combination. The view down to the beach was romantic and wonderful The sounds of the waves and crickets accentuated the evening. We also had the opportunity to tour a couple of the rooms in this very special place and if we didn't have a house here we would certainly stay at Imanta.
