Playa Viva Juluchuca, Mexico
Set along the Pacific coast within over two hundred acres of private nature preserve, this luxury boutique hotel in Mexico was developed as an environmentally conscious escape providing total immersion into the remote and wild beauty of the Pacific Coast. Teeming with biodiversity, the property is part of a native eco-system that includes a turtle sanctuary and estuary, an Aztec archeological site, and coastal forests that support an array of wildlife.
Working to set the standard for sustainable eco-friendly luxury, Playa Viva was designed in the style of an open-air resort with a mix of twelve unique casitas, suites and one magnificent bamboo treehouse scattered throughout the property. Each are constructed of rustic all natural materials and subtle contemporary design with stylish, open air living spaces that put an eco-friendly spin on luxury. Surrounded by the lush tropical landscape with stunning ocean views, you can indulge in the amenities of a boutique hotel while savoring the peace and tranquility of a coveted retreat.
The organic farm to table food produced on the land and by local farmers is served daily, and guests are welcome to wander the garden and orchards to pick fresh produce. Encouraging a holistic approach to wellness, there are staff on hand for yoga, mediation and indulgent spa services for blissful and deep rejuvenation.
Offering the highest environmental standards along with luxurious comfort, you’ll experience the unspoiled beauty of the local ecosystem while helping it to thrive, for an inspiring vacation that values the earth and all of its guests.
All meals and beverages (excluding alcohol) are included in your stay. Spa and massage services available, Yoga classes and meditation. Guided excursions on land and sea. Airport transfers included with stays of three nights or more.
Located along a quiet stretch of the Pacific, the coastal land surrounding Playa Viva is rich in biodiversity and more remote and isolated than it’s flashier neighbors to the north. The easy pace and welcoming spirit along with the unspoiled natural beauty make it a great alternative on the Riviera. Although parts of the town have succumbed to mass tourism, the easy going lifestyle of nearby Zihuatanejo’s historic fishing village still remains in some parts. You can still wander the winding cobblestone streets downtown to find excellent cafes, galleries and pubs that feature some of the same historic charms of the past and grab the catch of the day from the pescadores every morning. Ixtapa has given way completely to the resort life but the region overall still promotes the natural beauty, vibrant colours, traditional art and laid back Riviera lifestyle.
