The AAA Five Diamond Award-winning Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is an all-inclusive, all-suite resort located in the Riviera Nayarit; one of the top destinations on Mexico’s Pacific coast. Just 15 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, the resort features 267 spacious suites, each with a private balcony or terrace and elegant contemporary decor.

Suite amenities redefine the standards for luxury in grand all-inclusive lodging, and the experience is enhanced by the sound of the waves gently crashing on the beach. The world-class spa offers treatments designed to relax, rejuvenate, and revive the body and mind; guests also enjoy a renowned Water Journey, incorporating a series of soaking baths, saunas, steam rooms, and showers. Five restaurants, three of which have been awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award, feature stylish interiors and à la carte choices in French, Italian, or Mexican cuisine.
