We all know that Ixtapa Zihuatanejo is one of the most traditional tourist destinations in Mexico, but few know that this beach located in the state of Guerrero is home to one of the most fascinating hotels, especially for those looking for a romantic escape or just a relaxed plan with their loved ones in a space that you will fall in love with due to the combination of the color of its walls, the joy of its flowers, the rebelliousness of its sea and the warmth of its hosts.
Cala de Mar is privileged for being on the shores of the Mexican Pacific Ocean; it is only 20 minutes away from the airport and has 59 rooms, each one with its own terrace and private pool, so one more reason why it is one of our favorite resorts in Mexico.
Resting and contemplating the beauty of the immense sea is not the only thing we can do in Cala de Mar; pleasing the palate is among visitors’ favorite activities in any of its four restaurants: A Mares, where unique creations are offered by the Executive Chef; Seafood Market, where the client can choose fresh fish and seafood and decide how they want it to be prepared, all this on a wooden deck on the rocks; Las Rocas, which serves breakfast and lunch in a casual atmosphere to enjoy the best Mexican specialties; and Terrace Bar, which is arranged on three levels with endless views of the sea, offering a wide variety of tapas, ceviche, sushi and sashimi, drinks bar and the largest selection of aged Tequilas.
The Wellness in Cala de Mar is intertwined with ancient Mexican traditions, unique local rituals and the latest wellness techniques, immersing guests in a ceremony for the body and mind while satisfying the senses, as well as having complete equipment for those who keep up with their exercise routine on vacation while enjoying the spectacular ocean view. El Capricho SPA offers a wide selection of beauty treatments, massages and therapies, the temazcal, where ceremonies inspired by ancient healing traditions are held and a special area for Yoga and Pilates.
In addition to being able to visit Cala de Mar on one of your holidays, honeymoon or romantic escapes, it is also a great option to carry out a wedding, a social event or a business meeting since it is surrounded by sea and nature, being a magical and intimate place. We have no doubt why this incredible place has just won as the #1 Top Resort Hotel in Mexico for Travel and Leisure World´s Best Awards 2020.
