Stay Here for the Best Views of Banderas Bay

In Puerto Vallarta, Stay by Suzanne Koch

Recently renovated and as stunning as ever is the Grand Miramar All Luxury Suites & Residences, set in the exclusive Conchas Chinas community in Puerto Vallarta. The AAA Four-Diamond Award resort sits overlooking Banderas Bay offering picturesque views from up top. Its exclusivity combined with its prime location to the nearby bars and restaurants make it a prime choice for couples, honeymooners and special occasion travelers.

The hotel is highlighted by two large towers with wavy-like balconies that jut out over the blue bay. A mix of 80 suites and 20 residences make up the lodging complete with ocean views, a balcony and kitchenette. Larger suites are topped off with an outdoor balcony Jacuzzi. Modern Mediterranean decor dresses up the interiors while thatched roofs, white walls and vibrant pink foliage decorate the exterior.

The hotel has three swimming pools, multiple Jacuzzis and a swim-up bar. Airy cabanas and lounge chairs dot the pool area along with in-water loungers positioned for optimum views of the horizon. The easy-going, chic ambiance extends into its dining destinations as well. The outdoor restaurant La Mar is worth visiting for the views alone, while Cielito Lindo serves traditional Mexican cuisine, and the laid-back La Terraza is perfect for an easy lunch under the Vallarta sun. Gin-lovers (and everyone else) will find a new experience in the sky. The new rooftop Gin Joint sits high above it all where the best martinis, lounge music and 360-degree views go hand in hand.

Guests can also enjoy Spa Miramar at the hotel and the nearby Vista Vallarta Golf Club or Marina Vallarta for a relaxing round of golf.
