Nayarit, MEXICO – September 1, 2020 – Mexico’s coveted Riviera Nayarit welcomes a bright new era in hospitality with today’s official opening of Conrad Punta de Mita – Hilton’s first-ever Conrad brand resort in Mexico, and the second Conrad brand property in the country. Situated beside the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific on a two-mile-long beach, the highly anticipated opening of the 324-key property invites travelers to discover contemporary luxury.
“The opening of Conrad Punta de Mita marks an important milestone for Hilton, as we bring Conrad-level style, service and experiences to the shores of Riviera Nayarit,” said Jorge Giannattasio, Hilton’s senior vice president and head of operations, Caribbean & Latin America. “As one of Mexico’s most sought-after destinations, Punta de Mita is the perfect location for the newest addition to our luxury portfolio in the region – and we can’t wait for our guests to discover the inspired experiences that await at Conrad Punta de Mita.”
Featuring extraordinary design by global architecture firm SB Architects, Conrad Punta de Mita was created as a portal into the landscape, history and rich multi-cultural identity of the region. Accentuated by lush tropical vegetation, open corridors and contemporary coastal décor, the resort’s nature-centric aesthetic enhances wellness and reflects a core belief of the Huichol: that transformation and personal development occur through connection to nature. Blurring the line between the natural and built environment, thoughtfully designed spaces throughout the resort are open to the sky or contain apertures that provide a gateway to the natural world. These include the beach grill and sunset bar’s butterfly roof, a framed pergola welcoming guests in the main building and an event lawn surrounded by mangroves.
The guest stay experience at Conrad Punta de Mita will restore traveler confidence as guests enjoy the advantages of a brand-new resort located within the upscale Litibu gated community, where they can experience opportunities that meet today’s trends: open, uncrowded spaces and access to nature. The hotel is also rolling out Hilton CleanStay, Hilton´s industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection in properties around the world. The elevated processes and Team Member training have been developed with RB, maker of Lysol and Dettol, to help Conrad Punta de Mita guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to check-out.
To ensure less crowding, the resort opens with a selection of its 324 guestrooms and suites available, offering a full-service resort experience with the volume of a boutique hotel. For those seeking an even greater sense of seclusion and exclusivity, and especially ideal for those traveling in small groups, villa-like ‘Casas’ house a combination of guest rooms and suites, some featuring large patios, plunge pools, freestanding soaking tubs and outdoor showers. All accommodations boast modern design and coastal décor that enhance the natural beauty of the resort’s surrounding tropical oasis, and all offer sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.
“Conrad Punta de Mita not only represents the Conrad brand’s resort debut in Riviera Nayarit, but also institutes a new era of luxury in the destination,” said Nils-Arne Schroeder, global brand head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts and head of Luxury & Lifestyle, Asia Pacific. “Our talented team has put forth a tremendous effort to instill Conrad’s world-renowned and prestigious reputation of delivering intuitive service, infinite connections and a world of style in the core of this property that transforms the way today’s generation of travelers experience this coveted spot in Mexico.”
