The Riviera Nayarit area of Mexico and all inclusive Marival Armony is my newest favorite vacation spot. My husband was lucky I came home.
I got to go on a press trip to Mexico. Which means that I was provided hotel and activities, coordinated by ConnectHER Media, in order to write about the experience.
While I didn’t get to stay at this new property, I got to spend a day exploring the All-Inclusive Marival Armony in Punta de Mita, Mexico. And I fell in love. Hard.
I fell in love with Marival Armony!
Marival Armony is the newest property to open in the Riviera Nayarit area of Mexico. Set in Punta de Mita, about an hour’s drive from the Puerto Vallarta Airport, this property sits right on the ocean and is everything you never even knew you needed in a Mexican vacation.
This new Marival hotel concept finds a perfect balance between luxury and nature. It’s a first-class resort and it’s one you need to check out!
And since it’s been a while since I visited the resort, I wanted to share my friend, Jon’s, post from a recent visit he took to Marival Armony with his husband.
With the beach to one side and the Sierra Madre mountains to the other, you are tucked into a quiet part of town in the most tropical location your brain could ever dream up. With several pools to help you stay cool and stunning beach views, I completely fell in love with this new all-inclusive resort.
I instantly connected with the design of the hotel. From the thoughtful finishes (tile floors that look like weathered wood, bathroom tiles that mimic the way the wind sweeps over the sand!) to the nature-inspired but modern room art, this resort is breathtaking.
The modern design can be found throughout the entire hotel and feels calming and peaceful. We used a standard room for the day and it was roomy and comfortable and would be great for a romantic getaway.
There are also 2 bedroom suites available should you need a little bit more room to spread out.
Explore Your Surroundings
Even with the hotel still working to complete a little bit of construction, they have made it feel inviting, cool, and like you never want to leave.
Punta de Mita is a really quiet area and home to several other luxury properties. In order to get into the area, you must have reservations or an appointment making it feel secluded and totally safe.
The location of this property also puts you in close proximity to the local marina and the adorable town of Sayulita which you really need to spend a day exploring.
I suggest having whatever property you stay at help to arrange transportation when exploring. It’s the best way to know the prices up front and they will use a company they trust.
Also, if you set up an excursion or tour through Vallarta Adventures, it may include transportation to and from the adventures – so be sure to double check!
This Punta de Mita resort has gorgeous views!
The gorgeous beach is just a short walk from the rooms and has lounge chairs that are first come, first serve. An attendant is available to help you order food and beverage and make sure you have enough towels.
You can swim in the water which is different than some parts of Mexico. This is a great place to splash in the surf.
The beach stretches around a rocky corner and feels quiet and secluded. There are still a few vendors walking around trying to sell you silver jewelry but it doesn’t feel aggressive.
It really reminded me of our summers in Baja as a kid.
There are also some beach activities like kayaks, and paddle boards available.
Once complete, the resort will have four pools and 3 Jacuzzis. This seems to be the main pool and there was a rowdy bunch by the swim-up bar.
This seems like a fun place to visit with friends or your significant other.
There are also exclusive services for an added level of relaxation.
The infinity pool with swim-up bar was my favorite – because look at that view!
There are a few areas that are not included in the all-inclusive price and that is the ocean-view cabanas on the level just below the infinity pool. They are totally worth the cost in my opinion.
It was so relaxing right here (you literally have the whole ocean right in front of you if I would have panned the camera right from here).
Delicious, Authentic Food and Beverage Options
And let’s talk about the food. I didn’t get a chance to try out one of their restaurants (they will have 5 plus 4 bars) while I was there, but I did order food from one of these cabanas.
It was the BEST chicken quesadilla I’ve ever had. SO good. I also tried the coconut shrimp, yum, and the beer battered fish tacos. Again, yum.
I am desperate to stay here! Since I fell in love with the service from Marival Distinct and the design of Marival Armony, I know that this new all-inclusive resort in Punta de Mita would suit me perfectly.
