Imanta Resorts Punta Mita: Welcome to paradise!
There is usually always something that I spot in hotels that can be improved. This means that I generally don’t find many hotels where everything is perfect without a single reason to complain. The Imanta Resorts Punta Mita Hotel though seems to be one of these places. When we were staying in Sayulita for a few weeks, friends of ours flew in and stayed for a few days at the Imanta Punta Mita. As they didn’t want to leave the hotel to join us surfing in Sayulita (now I know why!), we decided visit them instead. So happy we did this! The hotel is seriously paradise!
The minute our friends told the hotel staff that they were expecting guests, the staff literally didn’t stop asking them when exactly we would arrive, whether anything special should be planned, whether we would have any diet requirements etc.. I guess you could say that the staff was super attentive :) And as the hotel wasn’t fully booked, there were around three waiters per guest – what more could you want!?
When we arrived at the entrance gate of Imanta Resorts Punta Mita the receptionist at the gate greeted us and a golf car was sent to pick us. The super attentive staff also knew exactly where our friends were at that moment and brought us to them – obviously our friends were hanging out at the private hotel beach :)
The entire beach for ourselves
The hotel is very small with respect to number of guests yet immense when you look at the hotel facilities and site. It feels like they literally bought the entire jungle around the hotel. The Imanta Resorts Punta Mita even offers private hiking tours to explore the hotel’s jungle preserve.
Now you can imagine how many other people you’d find sun bathing on the beach… NOBODY. That meant that we had a huge and super beautiful beach just for the four if us :)
After a bit of swimming and sun bathing we had lunch which was super yummy. Then of course we started drinking margaritas! After around 2 margaritas each we moved over to the sun beds and then went for a little walk to the Silent Zone of the SPA :)
Don’t drink and body board!
And another margarita later we decided that it’s the perfect time go body boarding! (Guys, don’t do that, especially if the waves break super steep onto the sand!) Rather than just having fun in the white water we, of course, had to swim out a bit to catch the (unbroken) waves properly (what a stupid idea!). The first wave smashed me face first into sand. I bruised my chin and my shoulder. After that I realised that the broken waves are probably much more fun after 3 margaritas.. The moment I turned around to check when the next wave was coming I saw how first Michael, then Jonas, were repeating the same face plant into the sand that I had just done! Oh well.. the wonderfully attentive staff immediately brought us some ice so Michael could cool his jaw.. fun times!
The cutest baby turtles in Punta Mita
Around sunset we had almost forgotten our little injuries and it was time to release baby turtles into the sea (read more about this here). It was so much fun, aren’t they super cute!?
For dinner we got changed and then went up to the roof top bar for some yummy food and, well, another margarita :)
The Imanta Resorts Punta Mita is seriously amazing and makes the perfect hotel for a honeymoon in Mexico. To read more about the hotel, click over to their website here.
