A complete jungle oasis - worlds away from nearby overrun Puerto Vallarta and the resort style scene in Punta Mita. From the moment the car turns off from the bustling main road, and down through the thick tropical forest, you are transported. The service was impeccable from every angle - from the personal touches placed by your butler, to the warm and relaxed service of the wait staff, to the stunning dishes from the Relaix and Chateau kitchen, Imanta could not do enough for me during my stay. The service was only matched by the stunning scenery, especially noted in the panoramic views of each room, from the lush jungle (in the middle of which is an open air, natural spa), the crashing pacific coast, and their long lines of private beaches, the green mountains - all of it promises the most beautiful, private and relaxing escape should you want it, but with plenty of opportunities to snorkel, hike, canoe, trail run, scuba dive, whale watch - or even go an explore the nearby sleep surf towns if you need some activity. In a word, perfection.
