After spending a day exploring the beautiful Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta, you feel exhausted. All you want to do is to find yourself a quiet oasis to relax and indulge in luxury. I’ve got a perfect place for you: Marival Residences Luxury Resort. How so? Read on to find out why this all-inclusive resort is the ideal place to start your five star holiday in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico!
About Marival Residences Luxury Resort
“Elegant,” “paradise,” and “pampering at its finest” are just a few ways to describe this understatedly gorgeous, luxury resort.
Bounded by the Sierra Madre Mountains and Banderas Bay, Marival Residences sits on a spectacular stretch of golden sand beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Staying at this AAA 4 Diamond property, you can expect quality service. No stress, no worries, just comfort and relaxation. The only thing you need to worry about is soaking up every moment at this tropical beach resort.
The Penthouse Suite: Home Away From Home
Marival Residences gives the convenience of home away from home. All the residences are spacious, beautifully appointed to embrace the feel of the Mediterranean, and fully equipped with a kitchen as well as an in-suite laundry – perfect for those who pack light for vacation!
Of the 162 accommodations, the best are the Penthouse suites. They combine comfort, style and function with a king-sized bed, a separate living space, a full gourmet eat-in kitchen, and an outdoor patio.
If you go to the top floor, there’s even an open deck terrace featuring a private plunge pool and sundeck! Complemented with marvelous views of Banderas Bay in Riviera Nayarit, it had become our favourite place to melt our stress away.
Another thing Kev and I loved dearly was the pillow menu. Marival offers a wide variety of pillow types to ensure our night’s sleep was as peaceful in Nuevo Vallarta as it is at home!
World-Class Beachfront Experience at “Mozza Mare”
There’s no shortage of places to take a refreshing dip at Marival. You can soak up the sun at the central pool, refresh yourself at the adult-only jacuzzi, take a leisurely swim at the winding pool, or better yet, chill at the private plunge pool at your penthouse suite!
But, what if you want to be on the beach? Just last month, the all-inclusive luxury resort added the exclusive VIP “Mozza Mare” to the equation for a better vacation experience!
During the day, you can grab a kayak and head on out to the ocean. Or, sink your toes into the sand flow your way through an energetic yoga practice. When you’re tired, lay back down on a sun lounger and sip on an ice-cold margarita that is brought to you by a server. Life sure is good at Mozza Mare!
Our favourite moment was enjoying a romantic candlelight dinner at the Mozza Mare Restaurant. With sea breezes brushing off our cheeks and stars twinkling in the inky night sky, this was undoubtedly an evening to remember.
Delight in the Selection of International Cuisine
Besides the Mozza Mare Restaurant, you can find 4 other restaurants at the all-inclusive resort, offering a creative selection of international cuisine. While we were a bit disappointed by the lack of Mexico options, we were impressed with Insu Sky Lounge. Not only does it offer delicious dishes from all around the world, it has the perfect vantage point to catch the most captivating sunset view of Banderas Bay.
If you’re interested in something unique, Nicksan at the Residences Plaza serves up mouthwatering Mexican-Japanese fusion cuisine to tantalize the taste buds. We highly recommend the tuna tostada, sashimi serranito, and baked scallops. Although not part of the all-inclusive program, the experience is worth splurging on!
Pamper Yourself at Melange World Spa
Looking to rejuvenate your mind and body? Look no further than Melange World Spa at the Residences Plaza. For an additional cost, you can unwind with a well-deserved self-pamper.
Melange is not your typical spa. It differentiates itself by offering unique spa treatments reproduced from rituals and cultures from 9 different countries. Whether you choose Japan’s “Shiatsu Experience,” Italy’s “Stomping of the Grapes” or Turkey’s “Hamam Ritual,” it is sure to be an unforgettable spa indulgence.
Take Part in Fun Outdoor Activities
Of course, as adventure travelers, we are always interested in exciting outdoor adventures to take part in. Being a guest at Marival Residences, we had the liberty to select one complimentary tour from an ever-changing selection of choices.
During our stay, Kev and I joined an exhilarating zipline tour with Canopy River. We spent the day in the jungle, flying above the river from tree to tree like an eagle! After ziplining, we even got to walk on the longest traffic suspension bridge of the world!
If you’re interested in surfing, the nearby town, Sayulita, is a popular place to hit the waves! You can also find some local artists there showcasing their unique creations.
Or, hire a car and visit Puerto Vallarta. Check out this Puerto Vallarta Travel Guide for suggestions on things to do.
