By Zahra Al-Kateb

W Mexico_1Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide’s new W Punta de Mita opened its doors for a society and press cocktail on Tuesday, June 21, 2016. This new hotel brings a refreshing twist on resort travel with a focus on alternative luxury and natural attractions.

“It’s a pleasure to have you here with us tonight,” said Brian Segrave, the hotel’s General Manager, welcoming guests just before a Huichol ceremony that focused on bringing positive vibes to the place. “This is a very important night for us because we’re celebrating that Mexico is the first country in Latin America with two W hotels.”

W Mexico_2“This opening reconfirms our commitment to bringing our world class brands to the world’s most idyllic locations,” commented Jean Marc Janod, VP of Operations for Starwood in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.

“The W Punta de Mita is definitely a unique alternative in the Riviera Nayarit,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau. “It dovetails nicely with several of the central concepts we’re promoting for the destination and its inauguration is perfectly timed to boost our hotel offer.”

Other outstanding elements of the presentation included delicious culinary offerings and innovative mixology, as well as a youthful atmosphere with electronica playing throughout the evening.

The resort is steeped in Sayulita’s unique style, with surfing elements and designs from the Revolución del Sueño shop, which revolve around colorful characters from Mexico’s history such as Frida Kahlo and Emiliano Zapata. Speaking of surfing, the hotel is located on Playa Los Veneros, one of the Riviera Nayarit’s hottest surf beaches.
