Conrad Punta de Mita, Hilton’s first Conrad brand resort and the second Conrad property in Mexico, is now open.

“The opening of Conrad Punta de Mita marks an important milestone for Hilton, as we bring Conrad-level style, service and experiences to the shores of Riviera Nayarit,” said Jorge Giannattasio, Hilton’s senior vice-president and head of operations, Caribbean & Latin America. “As one of Mexico’s most sought-after destinations, Punta de Mita is the perfect location for the newest addition to our luxury portfolio in the region—and we can’t wait for our guests to discover the inspired experiences that await at Conrad Punta de Mita.”

The resort is located on a two-mile stretch of beach in the upscale Litibu gated community. Designed by global architecture firm SB Architects, the 324-key property features a nature-centric design that reflects a core belief of the Huichol, the area’s indigenous people, who believe transformation and personal development occur through connection to nature.

The resort blends lush tropical vegetation, open corridors, and contemporary coastal decor. Design elements like the butterfly roof of the beach grill and sunset bar and the event lawn surrounded by mangroves, blur the line between the natural and built environment.

All 324 guestrooms and suites have views of the Pacific Ocean. For guests seeking exclusivity and seclusion, its villa-like “Casas” house a combination of guestrooms and suites, some with large patios, plunge pools, freestanding soaking tubs and outdoor showers.

Amenities of the new-build property include:

  • three pools;
  • access to the Greg Norman-designed Litibu Golf Course;
  • outdoor fitness lawn for yoga and stretching;
  • and the Conrad Spa, a 10,000-square-foot space with seven cocoon treatment cabanas and the first-ever traditional Temazcal, a type of low-heat sweat lodge, at a Conrad property.

On the f&b front, the resort has four restaurants and three bar concepts, all with menus and experiences that pay tribute to age-old techniques and flavours of the local culture. A highlight is CODEX, which will debut later this fall. Inspired by the ancient Aztec book of herbs—Codice—it will serve traditional Mexican fare prepared with locally-sourced ingredients. It will also offer daily cleansing and sunset rituals, and a Full Moon Experience with a menu curated by the phases of the month, on-property fermented mezcal tastings, and discussion with a local farmer on the health benefits of their crops and herbs used to prepare the meal.
