The beauty of this 120-room St. Regis Mexican resort is in its idyllic locale and the totally girl-time activities. Sprawled out over 1,500 acres along the Riviera Nayarit, the hotel is steps from the water and within driving distance from Puerto Vallarta’s colonial streets with its fun restaurants and clubs. Outdoor showers, sun beds, and spacious terraces are standard with every guest room, while the residential-style Suite Sueños, recently enjoyed by actress Kristin Chenoweth and her girl-crew, boasts a private pool and a state-of-the-art kitchen—ideal for hosting intimate gatherings. And though it’s unlikely you’ll want for much, St. Regis Butler Service is readily available.
