A Colorful Culinary Escape at W Punta de Mita

In Dine, Puerto Vallarta by Suzanne Koch

The vibrant W Punta de Mita is an oceanfront development that has all the attitude of a luxurious piñata. The stylish hotel marks the brand’s second Mexico hotel, after W Mexico City and fifth Latin American hotel. With a surf-inspired theme, laid-back vibes and brightly-colored suites, the resort is a burgeoning escape for a traditional Mexico with a modern flair. With such a lively atmosphere it’s no surprise that the culinary offerings reflect the upbeat approach, with fresh and flavorful dishes and cocktails.

Spice Market (featured photo): Tropical vibes meet Pan-Asian dishes; inspired by the Southeast Asian delicacies that Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten indulged in on his overseas adventures, this dining outlet features light bites and exquisite cocktails.

Venazu: While this all-day, casual Mexican restaurant will please your palate, it’s interior will definitely catch your eye. An explosion of bold-colored decor gives off the true vibes of a Mexican fiesta while the airy interiors and killer views will remind you you’re really there.

Mesa1: For the VIP treatment, book Mesa1, a private dining experience set in the center of a spring-fed lake, accessed by stepping stones that disappear once everyone’s been seated. The hotel’s private chefs prepare a seven-course customizable tasting menu that diners can enjoy on the “table,” a massive, repurposed Parota tree trunk. Plan ahead—this restaurant accommodates only one seating daily!

Chevycheria: Grab some craft beers and fresh ceviche from this converted 1950’s Chevrolet 3800 truck that’s located on the beach near the WET Deck.
