When family travel only includes you and your significant other, consider Naviva, A Four Seasons Resort, Punta Mita, Mexico. The brand’s first adults-only luxury tented resort in the Americas now welcomes guests to its 15 luxury tents situated on 48 forested acres on the edge of a private peninsula.
“Naviva builds on the success of our more than 20 years in Punta Mita, reinforcing everything that our guests love about this idyllic destination while offering an entirely new experience,” said Rainer Stampfer, president, global operations, Hotels and Resorts, Four Seasons. “This exceptional project is a testament to our dedication to innovating the guest experience and creating unique concepts within our portfolio that meet guest needs in meaningful, personalized ways.”
The resort was designed through the lens of biophilic design and biomimicry, meaning the natural world was the driving force for the design. The luxury tents include indoor and outdoor areas, an open-air living room, a separate bedroom, a private plunge pool, a hammock, firepit and outdoor shower. The oversized bathrooms boast deep-soaking tubs and sky-lit showers. The resort’s design team also collaborated with Mexican artists, craftspeople and manufacturers.
Naviva offers Daily, Signature and Unscripted Naviva experiences, all focused on different themes and boasting offerings like nature hikes and time in the temazcal. Several wellness spaces at the resort include two spa pods, a cliffside terrace, an open-air gym and more. Copal Cocina serves dishes incorporating uncommon ingredients and local abundance. Guests can also dine on light bites at Selva Pool or enjoy in-tent dining around the clock.
“We welcome guests to Naviva as if they are friends joining us at our own home, while giving them the space and flexibility for their own self-discovery and adventure,” said Ronny Fernández, resort manager, Naviva, A Four Seasons Resort. “Together with my team, we’re honoured to unveil this one-of-a-kind experience to the world, showcasing the wonders of Mexico – from embarking on a shamanic sound journey to finding a new level of focus while spearfishing – in a distinctly Four Seasons way. The joy of my role is being able to personally guide guests through these experiences and help them connect more deeply with the wonders around them.”
