Among many unique places, this hard to get to and not easy to find we have discovered IMANTA Resort. Pure and perfect in every way, a true hidden gem of the Pacific Coast, located on Riviera Nayarit, Mexico.
Set on the cliffs of lush tropical jungle overlooking pristine waters of the Ocean this boutique resort is ideal for romantic excursion or to reconnect with nature. It holds few surprises and what I would even call WOW factors.
To start with, to access the resort you drive through unpaved passages that leads you around tropical bushes and trees which make you guess once or twice if you are heading the right way, until you reach the main Palapa and you realize you have just arrived to oasis of pure tranquility and serenity
Imanta resort 11 exquisite villas beautifully appointed along the coast, inspired architecturally in a way by Pre-Hispanic temples offer spaciousness and comfort. Surrounded by lush forest, with its private terraces and pools immediately invites you to relax and indulge. Resort villas go as large as 2,500 square feet offer kitchens, private dining, lounge areas and pools, design of the rooms reflect much of the entire resort feel of perfect combination of stone with wood.
Each suite is only few steps away from the resort totally private beach. Settled in a small cove, with clear waters and pristine white sands this beach is your private peace of heaven available only to those who are lucky enough to visit.
Hotel impeccable service and attention to detail makes it a second WOW factor to us. You have a feeling of a complete privacy but yet, your butler shows up always at the right moment, always one step ahead to exceed your expectations.
IMANTA’s sophistication and luxury continues to impress thought their culinary approach. This ultimate romantic getaway offers to its guests casual meals at the beach Palapa or private dining at “Observatorio,” outdoor bar and lounge area for evening stargazing and fabulous cocktails. Resort Chef WOW’s his guests with daily specials. Depending on his personal inspiration you may enjoy Tuna tartar with a touch of sesame oil and guacamole, seared Scallops with fresh fruit chutney or catch of the day on a saffron risottos, all this accompanied with attentive world class service.
The experience is one of the kinds and NOT to be missed, we recommend you put this place on your “Bucket List” today.
