Are you beginning to plan your next vacation? Looking for that ultimate relaxing, calm, and tranquil resort where you can sit back to the soothing sounds of nature while letting the wait of the world drift away? While you love your family, maybe you are considering a trip just for you and your partner — an opportunity to get away from the daily routine and truly take time to be together. Pack your bags and book your flight to Puerto Vallarta, the town of contrasts and contradictions that come together to create a vibrant and harmonious mosaic with stunning ocean views.
With many luxury vacation destinations focused on catering to a larger clientele with amenities like hotel suites, casual dining, and kid-friendly facilities, it can be challenging to find a hotel you can fully relax in. Fortunately, getaway destinations like Puerto Vallarta are offering adults their own personal retreat away from the bustling world around them.
Today, Supreme Auctions President Jennie Heal and CEO Maverick Commins shared their favorite adult-only hotels in the Bahia de Banderas resort town.
Maverick’s Favorite: Hotel Amapa
Located amongst the traditional village buildings, vibrant street life, beautiful beaches, and mountains of downtown Puerto Vallarta is Hotel Amapa. Designed to express the contrast of culture, ideas, and people of the city, Hotel Amapa mixes the vibrant lifestyle with the highest level of comfort, quality, and refinement. With their Minimal, Modern, and Mexican approach, Hotel Amapa provides a retreat that inspires guests to both relax and explore everything the town has to offer.
Their Wellness Pavilion offers massages and reflexology treatments, as well as a meditation and yoga platform surrounded with beautiful ocean views.
If you are looking for fresh air without exploration, the hotel’s rooftop infinity pool boasts full 360-degree views of Puerto Vallarta, a fire pit, and lounge areas. Their full-service rooftop bar is the ideal place to grab a mezcal or tequila cocktail and watch the sunset.
Opened only three years ago in 2018, this adult only hotel is one of the newer boutique hotels on the coast of Bahia de Banderas (Banderas Bay). Located in the vibrant and historic Zona Romantica, the 55-room, adults-only hotel offers contemporary design, attentive service, and a location just steps from the bustling Playa Los Muertos and the town’s charming, easy-to-stroll streets.
Hotel Amapa offers 8 room types — many with private balconies and expansive windows — are designed to put the view at the forefront of each guest’s experience. The rooms are inspired by influential Mexican architect and engineer Luis Barragán’s purist approach to color and form; they have delicate creamy neutral tones to compliment the ocean views and the lush green mountain landscapes.
What Maverick loves the most about the location is their television-free environment. He can completely step away from work and the world to fully immerse himself in the relaxing culture created by Hotel Amapa.
Jennie’s Favorite: Casa Velas
Tucked away on the Puerto Vallarta coast, Casa Velas is the region’s top-rated all-inclusive resort for adults only. While Hotel Amaba provides unparalleled ocean views, Casa Velas guests are surrounded with lush tropical gardens and an oasis lined with regal palms, oversized swimming pools, and plush cabanas. The difference from the beachy ocean blue to the vibrant green, combined with the luxury amenities, are truly what won Jennie over.
In the morning, take a stroll around the koi ponds and enjoy the company of resident peacocks or get lost in the four labyrinths in their yoga concourse. The labyrinths symbolize the paths to truth, wisdom, soul, and personal fulfillment; each ritual encourages a profound state of reflection to free the mind, body, and spirit from all distress.
As a complement to this moment of soul-searching and spiritual healing, spend the afternoon in ABJA Spa’s invigorating atmosphere. Or if you feel up to the challenge, take in a stunning view of the city while enjoying 18 holes of golf at Marina Vallarta Golf Club, which is right next door to the resort.
Wrap up the day in the resort’s restaurant, Emiliano, which is supplied with fresh herbs from the onsite organic garden.
All of this does not come without accolades. Casa Velas has received the AAA Four Diamond Award for hospitality seven times and has been in the top two in TripAdvisor for Puerto Vallarta since 2010.
The hotel itself features 80 spacious suites, some with private pools and Jacuzzis. Spa Casa Velas encompasses treatment rooms for singles and couples, a hydrotherapy area, a garden-view fitness center equipped with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, and a beauty salon.
Experience luxury at its finest in either Hotel Amapa or Casa Velas for your next Adult-Only vacation.
