In Puerto Vallarta, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world’s leading luxury hospitality company, announces that Forbes Travel Guide has bestowed Five Stars, its highest designation, on Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita. Worldwide, 26 Four Seasons hotels and resorts earned the coveted Five-Star designation in 2016, the most for a single hotel brand.

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, a paradise beachfront oasis tucked into the lush landscape of the Riviera Nayarit, received the Five-Star distinction for a second year in a row and is one of only six luxury resorts in Mexico to receive this prestigious recognition awarded to 154 hotels in 2016.

The Four Seasons Punta Mita is a 400-acre tropical resort sprawled out on the southwest point of the Riviera Nayarit. Just 45 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, this beachfront wonderland sits in a quaint fishing village and is surrounded by lush foliage and sweeping ocean views. A Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, spa, three alfresco Richard Sandoval restaurants and rural Mexico vibes complement the 173 casita-style guest rooms awaiting your arrival.


“This recognition is a true testament to our team’s passion and dedication for providing exceptional service and going above and beyond to create new incredible experiences for our guests to discover the destination,” says John O’Sullivan, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita. “We are honoured to receive this coveted Five-Star ranking by Forbes Travel Guide and look forward to achieving the highest standards this award represents for years to come.”

Star ratings are awarded by a team of anonymous professional inspectors. In the words of Forbes Travel Guide, its inspectors “travel the world to assess hotels, restaurants and spas against up to 800 objective standards.” Star ratings ultimately emphasise quality of service. Five-Star properties are defined as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities.”
