Life’s a beach at first Hilton Conrad resort in Mexico

News that Hilton has opened its first Conrad-branded resort in Mexico, has us reaching for a cool Paloma and wondering where we’ve left our flip flops.

The new Conrad Punta de Mita began welcoming guests this week. Set on a two-mile-long beach on the Pacific coast of the Riviera Nayarit, the resort is a new 325-room property fringed by palm trees on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. 

Amid dramatic scenery, are resort bungalows, pavilions, and cabanas, with suites offering fully-furnished kitchens and living rooms.

The interior design draws on Mexico’s rich history and culture, indigenous artwork integrated with contemporary architecture.

For those that want to explore, there’s the seaside town of Sayulita, a 15-minute drive south of Mandarina. Known for its surfing, beachside cafes, and handmade arts and crafts, Sayulita’s streets could be the perfect location to indulge in some traditional Mexican cuisine. 

We could get used to the view…

Additional destination activities include fish market tours and cooking demonstrations with local chefs in Punta Mita; catamaran snorkeling excursions exploring the surrounding areas of Bahia de Banderas, or a sea safari to the small fishing village of Quimixto, where we’re told there’s a trusty steed waiting to hoof you up to a local waterfall.
