In Puerto Vallarta, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Highlighted by its hacienda-style architecture, 80 designer suites, celebrated cuisine and special gourmet happenings, it’s no surprise at all that the adults-only boutique hotel, Casa Velas, in Puerto Vallarta recently received some top-tier recognition from both SLH (Small Luxury Hotels of the World) and Forbes Travel Guide.

With a variety of unique experiences and luxe amenities like duplex wellness suites with a personal wellness concierge and a “Handbag Bar” with designer bags on loan complimentary, Casa Velas is now a member of SLH’s diverse portfolio that includes over 500 hotels in more than 80 countries. The portfolio only includes boutique stays that excel in offering one-of-a-kind experiences.

Casa Velas has also been awarded Four Stars from Forbes Travel Guide, adding it to its highly-acclaimed Star list of hotels and restaurants. With only the best properties in the world receiving these stars, Casa Velas now joins other luxury resorts that hold the Four Star distinction like The St. Regis in Milan, Bulgari Hotel in London and the Grand Hôtel du Palais Royal in Paris, among others. And what’s more, Casa Velas is the only boutique hotel on the Mexican Pacific Coast to receive the esteemed Four Star recognition, making it a must-visit for those looking to escape to the sunny coast.

Guests can now take advantage of one of Casa Velas’ luxury experiences, Dinner in the Sky. The over-the-top, one-hour experience lifts diners nearly 150-ft. in the air where a three-course dinner from top chefs is served. Dinner in the Sky is taking place through the end of February. Tickets are $50 when staying a minimum of three nights at the hotel.
