Finding Imanta: An Oceanfront Micro-Resort in Mexico’s Punta Mita
When the opportunity came up to visit Punta Mita on Mexico’s Pacific coast, I leaped at the chance. Who wouldn’t? Mexico is a world-class vacation destination for its impressive and varied landscapes. I’ve seen secluded colonial mountain-top towns and sleepy Caribbean fishing villages but the Pacific coast had so far eluded me. Exciting.
I’ve always had a lot of love for Mexico, and not just as a tourist destination. The country shines with a kind of simple friendliness which seems to be the unwritten rule of how this chaotic society functions. Sharing buena onda - good vibe - is the best way to get into the rhythm of Mexico. Once you catch the beat, you might get hooked too.
Punta Mita is a 1,500-acre peninsula in the state of Nayarit, close to Puerto Vallarta. The community is bordered on three sides by pristine white-sand beaches and the vibrant turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean. The views are breathtaking as they sweep around the scenic coastline of the Bay of Banderas.
Punta Mita is a peaceful neighborhood of just 15 small-scale communities which host luxury private villas and expansive estates. The low-density population ensures guests enjoy the height of privacy and seclusion while immersing themselves in the abundance of the lush jungle setting.
Imanta is a boutique micro-resort which hosts three large villas, a range of private houses, and luxurious suites. The accommodations benefit from direct views of the ocean or the surrounding tropical jungle. It’s spectacular.
Guests of Imanta enjoy a relaxed lifestyle which seamlessly brings together expressive luxury finishes with the raw natural beauty of a private beachfront jungle reserve.
Shall we take a look around?
One of the three estate villas in the resort, Casona Jaguar offers three bedroom suites and an expansive 10,000 square feet of living space. The villa features a 65-foot infinity-edge pool and a great rooftop lounge terrace.
The open-concept lounge and dining room features floor-to-ceiling windows which invite the cool sea breezes to refresh the home.
Casona Jaguar hosts two master suites, with a third bedroom which is ideal for those traveling with children.
Tree House is an architectural delight and a magical retreat for those looking for something a little different…
The three-story tree house is immersed in the jungle, with outstanding living spaces which capture amazing views of the ocean.
Tree House also has its own natural waterfall and private bathing pools. Nice!
