Bliss On Banderas Bay: Hotel Mousai, Puerto Vallarta

The first of many elements that will take your breath away at this ultra-luxurious, adults-only resort are the views. From its setting high above sparkling Banderas Bay, it offers a unique vantage point for taking in the incredibly scenic crescent-shaped coastline and the Pacific that stretches beyond. But that’s just the beginning of what lies in store for you.

Another hint of things to come is that Hotel Mousai is the first and only resort in Puerto Vallarta and, in fact, the entire state of Jalisco, to earn the coveted AAA Five Diamond designation. It’s a sure sign that you can expect world-class luxury, leading-edge cuisine and extraordinary service.

Let’s start with the accommodations. Hotel Mousai occupies two towers within the exclusive Garza Blanca Preserve. The newest of them is the South Tower, home to a choice of suites including the Ultra Mousai Corner Suite that includes among its amenities a signature Tafer king-size bed with luxurious linens, a sofa, workspace and ensuite bath with dual vanities and a walk-in rain shower. Most notably, there’s a wraparound terrace that’s almost as large as the suite itself and includes a private jetted plunge pool and oversized hammock, not to mention panoramic jungle and ocean views.

The North and South Towers also offer expansive Penthouse suites, a lobby bar and a rooftop infinity pool that has to be experienced to be believed. Talk about feeling like you’re on top of the world.

As a guest in one of Hotel Mousai’s Ultra Suites, you’ll enjoy the services of a personal butler who will stand ready to reserve your lounge chairs by the pool, make your dinner reservations and keep your suite stocked with top-shelf spirits and snacks. At your request, your butler will also seamlessly arrange for any activities you’d like to enjoy such as a kayaking adventure to Mismaloya Beach and the Los Arcos rock formation, a jungle hiking tour or Kundalini yoga on the beach.

To enjoy the finest dining in Puerto Vallarta, you won’t even have to leave the resort. Among the most tantalizing restaurant choices are NOI, a contemporary venue that elevates Italian food to an art form; DAO, specializing in serving modern Chinese cuisine in a Zen-like setting; and Hiroshi, where Japanese culinary creations are prepared with the freshest of ingredients. You can even ask your personal butler to arrange a private candlelit dinner on the rooftop of the North Tower so you can gaze out on yet another stunning view of the bay while you dine.

Of course, no world-class resort is complete without an equally world-class spa. Spa Imagine is located on the 15th floor (yes, that means more mesmerizing views), and offers an impressive menu of treatments, including a Hydrotherapy Ritual that includes a circuit of six different hot and cold stations. One of the spa’s newest treatments is the HydraFacial. This special hydrating treatment uses patented technology and nourishing ingredients to improve the skin’s texture and tone.

Hotel Mousai also offers an all-inclusive option that includes gourmet dining, a selection of premium, local and international alcoholic beverages and 24-hour room service for a truly carefree experience.

It may be the views and amenities that will draw you to Hotel Mousai, but it will be the extraordinary level of service the hotel staff delivers that will keep you coming back.
