In the last several years, the Costalegre has become a popular and privileged destination for visitors who want to discover Mexico. The gentle, pleasant all year round climate of the region enables tourists to discover magnificent natural settings and to take advantage of the best possible conditions for venturing into the famous Sierra Madre Mountains. In addition they can enjoy the superb beaches which open onto some of the world’s most beautiful bays, like the renowned Banderas Bay. It’s here every winter that hundreds of hump back whales come together and perform a sort of majestic ballet in the middle of the Pacific, which for young and old alike, whoever is lucky enough to witness it, is a truly unforgettable experience. And yet the real attraction of this region are the small typical villages which enable tourists to get close to the local inhabitants and to better understand the traditions and the thousand year old culture of the country.
Las Alamandas, on the Pacific coast of Mexico, between Puerta Vallarta and Manzanillo, is undoubtedly one of the country’s jewels. This extraordinary hotel, a project of Isabel Goldsmith, has only about 40 rooms for privileged guests to enjoy a vacation in an exceptional and colorful setting. Intimacy is totally guaranteed, and it’s very rare that guests run into one another. One of these rare moments might be in the hotel’s restaurant, the Oasis, where Chef Morales proposes a delicious international and typically local cuisine. Another one of these rare occasions would be over a delicious cocktail in the charming lounge bar, Estrella Azul.
Las Alamandas possesses no less than 70 hectares of beach and 7 enchanting villas which rival each other in luxury as well as in the kind of simplicity that enables visitors to feel at ease immediately. Each villa has its own individual, sober and colorful décor, and can receive two to eight guests thanks to its large number of rooms. A room here however, is not merely a comfortable bed, a night table and a bathroom. In order for guests to take full advantage of their stay here, each room has a sleeping or resting room, a particularly large bathroom, a very well equipped living room, and a large terrace facing the garden, with a table, sofa, deck chair, and Jacuzzi. However, since each villa has its own surprises, the different kinds of equipment present are too long to list, although one thing is certain: whatever you can imagine in the way of luxury and comfort has been provided for by the hotel. For guests who need to stretch their legs a bit, the hotel’s huge swimming pool is just a few steps from the beach. The fitness center is also available for more serious stretching. But for extreme relaxation, the place to go is definitely is the spa for a massage administered by talented, expert hands.
“When the sun shines on this magnificent place, it’s absolute paradise. The colors are so vivid and the atmosphere so soft and gentle that you never want to leave. Even when it’s cloudy and the air becomes gray and heavy, the kindness and gentleness of everyone here in this enchanting world is comforting.” Raquel Welch, actress
