Las Alamandas Romantic Boutique Hotel, Mexico
Las Alamandas is an intimate retreat created by Isabel Goldsmith-Patiño the granddaughter of Bolivian Tin King Don Antenor. The luxury retreat is within a 1500-acre private paradise of exotic trees, palms, flowers, wild birds, lagoons, and endless white-sand beaches.
The 17-room hideaway, which is located on a private 1 km beach, holds a maximum of 42 guests. It is managed like an elegant, private estate where guests are accorded the highest standards of hospitality. There are a total of four (mile to two-mile long each) private beaches on the property, acres of meticulously manicured lawn and gardens, private estuaries, and miles of breathtakingly scenic hiking and biking trails.
The romantic paradise is located on the Mexican Riviera, south of Puerto Vallarta and north of Manzanillo. Driving time is 1 and 1/2 hours from Manzanillo Airport and 2 hours from Puerto Vallarta.
The luxury hotel will arrange airport pick-up and delivery by a chauffeur-driven car. There is also a private asphalt landing strip at the resort, capable of accommodating small aircraft that can be chartered from Puerto Vallarta or Manzanillo.
Las Alamandas interiors are Mexican inspired with sofas upholstered in canary yellow or shocking pink fabric with brightly colored, embroidered cushions. Pale yellow paths, decorated with stone mosaics wind through gardens fragrant with the scent of gardenias, pink and purple bougainvillea, high-blooming jasmine, as well as the brilliant yellow Alamanda flower for which the resort is named.
Guests can dine in one of four splendid restaurants and bars: Oasis, Pergola, La Palapa Beach Club and Estrella Azul a rooftop lounge bar. The Oasis can even arrange mariachis and bonfires on the beach for that romantic evening under the stars.
