If you just need that daily yoga class, book a stay at one of these five wellness-focused resorts in Puerto Vallarta.
Book a room at: Casa Velas
For: Your own private Wellness Suite—a two-level, king-bed room replete with an immersion pool and workout equipment. Your stay includes one massage and one hydrotherapy circuit, nutrition and fitness consultations, and a concierge.
Bonus perk: Táu Beach Club offers views of Banderas Bay and is a prime venue for a sushi lunch or sunset dinner.
Book a room at: The Westin Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta
For: Body treatments inspired by the region, like a green coffee or black mud body wrap. Our suggestion: Schedule an outdoor sunset massage where your Zen moment will be accompanied by tiki torches and the soothing sounds of waves.
Bonus perk: New Balance–designed custom running maps so your jog will be both scenic and productive.
Book a room at: Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa
For: Access to Puerto Vallarta’s largest spa—22,000 square feet of ahh-inducement. Among the unique treatments at the on-site Ohtli Spa is the Janzu Rebirth Therapy, during which a therapist leads you through a series of movements in warm water to cultivate a meditative state.
Bonus perk: Find your favorite tequila at Ceviche & Tequila Bar; there are more than 180 varieties, though we suggest you don’t try all of them at once.
Book a room at: El Grullo Naturista
For: Daily yoga sessions, chef-prepared vegetarian meals and fruit plates, and a wide variety of unique body-calming treatments, from hot onion compresses to steam baths, at a boutique hotel and naturopathic wellness center that’s been around for more than 70 years.
Bonus perk: The beachfront villas are bright and airy, with vaulted palapa ceilings that let the ocean breeze sweep in.
Book a room at: Xinalani
For: A private beach (about 12 miles south of PV and accessible only by boat) that sets the scene for a holistic wellness retreat. The property has six open-air yoga studios, a sweat lodge, oceanfront spa, and menus chock-full of local, organic ingredients.
Bonus perk: Sign up for a cooking class with Xinalani’s chef, a jungle hike, or a swim with dolphins.
