It took less than an hour for me to go from planeside to poolside at Casa Velas, an 80-suite boutique hotel and spa located just five minutes from Puerto Vallarta's international airport and discreetly integrated within an upscale residential neighborhood alongside the greens of Marina Vallarta's 18-hole golf course. e ease with which you can slip into this adults-only, all-inclusive paradise, where colorful peacocks meander through lush tropical landscaping, makes it ideal for a quick battery-charging getaway. Part of the Velas Resorts group, whose tagline is "Beyond All Inclusive, Beyond Compare," guests at Casa Velas have access to big resort amenities in a boutique setting. All-inclusive rates include luxury suite accommodations; a la carte gourmet meals at a variety of specialty restaurants, including dining privileges at sister resorts, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and Velas Vallarta; unlimited golf at Marina Vallarta and Vista Vallarta golf clubs (excluding cart fee); shuttle service and access to the private Ocean Club; premium branded beverages; 24-hour in-suite service; a well-equipped Žtness center; a comprehensive lineup of weekly events; and, taxes and gratuity. Traditional Mexican colors and furnishings deŽne the décor in the spacious guest accommodations. Whimsical in-room artwork by sculptor Sergio Bustamante is one of many ways that Mexican culinary, artistic, and cultural traditions are woven into the guest experience. A recently unveiled pair of 1,350-square- foot Wellness Suites reflect a property-wide commitment to wellness. Each suite is complemented by a dedicated Wellness Concierge; in-suite Žtness amenities; a private plunge pool and rooftop Jacuzzi; bespoke soaps created from local botanicals; a Nikken Kenko sleep system; and an Alchimia Apothecary essential oil aromatherapy kit. GO FOR E IT With unlimited golf on three courses and an onsite kitchen garden, Casa Velas resort in Puerto Vallarta makes it easy to get your greens Written by Caylee Matthews 48 slmag.net
