- The St Regis Punta Mita Resort, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita are classified among the best hotels in the world, the best resorts in Mexico and the best family hotels in Mexico.
Every year the prestigious New York-based magazine, Travel + Leisure publishes its classifications of the best hotels in the world within different categories. There’s no doubt the Riviera Nayarit is making its presence felt.
Travel + Leisure’s monthly publication has a readership of 4.8 million. It was founded in 1971 under its current name though it was being produced since 1937 under the name U.S. Camera and Travel. It has editions in eight different countries, including Mexico.
The list of the “World’s Best Hotels 2013” looks at 50 of the top resorts around the globe: the St Regis Punta Mita resort occupies position number 45.
Its sweeping Pacific Views, proximity to the Marietas Islands, two Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses, junior suites with private terraces and more validate the choice.
“Part of the appeal of this Mediterranean-inspired property on the Riviera Nayarit is its small scale: with just 120 rooms, the 1,500-acre retreat feels intimate,” said the article.
The “Top Resorts of Mexico” picks out the top 25 in the country; the St Regis Punta Mita Resort occupies the 3rd position, followed by the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in 10th place and the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita in the 17th spot.
All four resorts are ideal for family visits. The Four Seasons was singled out for the 2nd position on the list of “Top Family Hotels in Mexico.”
Travel + Leisure is one of the most important tourism publications in the world, which is why the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau usually invites this medium when organizing FAM trips to the destination.
