Las Alamandas: Heaven On Earth

Las Alamandas | Entry to Casa del Domo Master Suite

An isolated, boutique hideaway dots the coastline between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta. Here discreetly lies Las Alamandas, an unrivaled constellation of hospitality, radiance and the intimacies of luxury. Such grace is symbolized by the native Alamanda, a golden flower blooming throughout the grounds. The privately held Costalegre estate brims in abundance: namely, seven secluded villas, 1,500 subtropical virgin acres, miles of trails, a lagoon sanctuary, divine gardens and the privacy of four endless beaches—all for the delight of only 42 guests. No wonder honeymooners, discerning international travelers and celebrities unwind here. They keep it simple. Paradise found.

Many simply reclaim their anonymity—from a quick game of the uniquely French pétanque, to solar worshiping underneath a scattering of colorful pergolas, approximately 100 employees imperceptibly accommodate your every need. Signature pink umbrellas, terry cloth towels and a prepared lunch will await you on their exclusive beach. Thus, to no surprise, the resort recently acquired the prestigious accolade as 2011′s “Most Excellent Romantic Hideaway” by Condé Nast Johansen.
