From JFK’s JetBlue Terminal to a pool in Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel at an artsy and trendy Puerto Vallarta, Mexico might be exactly what you are looking for. Great destination for those looking for an eclectic vacation spot full of creativity, great art scene and culture. It is a perfect place for singles but also families and couples in love since views and promenade are very romantic. Not to mention there is a whole area called Zona Romántica and there is so much love in the air.
We were on JetBlue’s very first, non stop route from JFK to Puerto Vallarta. The flight was smooth, pleasant and in no time Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel representatives greeted us with water and aromatic, hot towels at the airport. Ride to the hotel lasted about twenty minutes and we even got to listen to music of our choice in the car. Our welcome drink at the reception was refreshing and the staff very kind.
What is very unique about the check in is you get a pillow and a scent menu for in room aromatherapy. We love a hotel that knows how important scents and good night sleep are. It was already an excellent sign and we didn’t even enter the room! There is a larger fountain at the entrance of the hotel and a smaller one within the lobby area, so the sounds of water expedited easing into tranquil Puerto Vallarta mode.
To be honest, out of excitement we needed an immediate toast to great times and a snack so we visited “La Ceiba” restaurant. After a glass of chilled Prosecco and a seafood platter while overlooking Pacific Ocean, taste of Mexico set in.
We stayed at a deluxe room, with an indoor jacuzzi, king size bed and a gorgeous ocean view from any corner of the tastefully furnished room. Yes, from the jacuzzi too! It was absolutely breathtaking walking in and seeing glorious Bay of Banderas from our private balcony. Villa Premiere welcomed us with a personalized letter along with a bottle of wine, fruits and chocolates. Only downside is, it is hard to leave the room with such views so good news is, there is in-room service.
The hotel has two pools. An infinity pool with bar service all day long and the main pool surrounded by beautiful flower gardens. Don’t forget, this is an adults only resort which has many advantages. For those who prefer the beach, there are beds for maximum relaxation and a drink or a meal. We loved their tacos and shrimp wrap, paired with some sparkling wine of course. On Saturdays, there is a fish market, a sea-to-table concept created by Chef Sebastian Varona and his team with fresh ingredients straight from the Bay of Banderas and other waters near Mexico’s leading Pacific Coast. You can take a cooking class or simply have them prepare seasonal options such as mahi-mahi, red snapper, sea bass, octopus, crab, lobster, clam, scallops and oysters among others.
Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway offers a variety of dining options. From the flavors of traditional Mexican cuisine to the finest international delicacies, the “Exquisite All-Inclusive Gourmet” plan, curated by executive chef Sebastian S Varona Domblas will set you up for an experience without limits. The first night we tried Chef’s Table, 5 course dinner, with pairing. Highly recommended, specially made with fresh, local ingredients. To maintain your figure or to comfortably keep tasting all the amazing dishes visit the gym or continue indulging by getting a massage at their spa.
When it comes to supporting local community, Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway, as part of Buenaventura Hotels, founded the Orchestra School of Puerto Vallarta whose main objective is to create better citizens through music. The primary focus is to benefit children of underprivileged and low-income areas developing skills that will enable them to become productive and contributing citizens. By booking Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel, guests contribute to this cause.
Located in the heart of Puerto Vallarta just a few blocks from the main downtown pedestrian promenade, guests can enjoy many activities outside of the hotel as well. Lots of galleries, shops and water activities are available. We did take advantage of a great boat day trip with Vallarta Adventures.
From the moment guests arrive, Villa Premiere offers unforgettable experience and we hope togo back soon!
