Why Stay At Capella Ixtapa Resort and Spa

This seven-story luxury resort hugs the rugged coastline on a hillside facing the Pacific Ocean, about a 3½-hour flight from Los Angeles. Indulgent touches include a dedicated personal assistant, a 6,000-square-foot spa, and infinity pools on every level.

The Scoop

The Capella family of hotels and resorts is best known for its impeccable taste and personalized guest experiences. Capella Ixtapa transports these signature services to Mexico's western coast, a region known for its dramatic Pacific coastline and rich artistic and musical culture. All 59 guest spaces at the suite-only property have original Mexican art, private plunge pools, and uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. As is true in all Capella properties, each room also has a designated personal assistant—a point person for every guest request, from booking spa appointments and dinner reservations to preparing candlelit dinners on suite terraces or picnics on the property's private beach. The resort also has three restaurants—including A Mares, with excellent modern Mexican cuisine—and a 6,000-square-foot spa with six treatment rooms, a fitness center and salon, and a curated menu of treatments that often incorporate local herbs, flowers, and traditional massage techniques.

Insider Tips

There is no check-in or checkout time, so you don't have to worry about unusual travel schedules; you will be checked in whenever you arrive, and checked out whenever you have to leave.

The hotel's staff delivers complimentary tortilla chips, guacamole, and a couple of bottles of domestic beer to each room at around 5 p.m. If you aren't at your room at that time, the treats will be waiting for you when you return.

Hotel Report From the editors of: Travel+Leisure

Why We Love Ixtapa

The coastal city has blossomed into a town of luxury since resorts cropped up in the early 1970's, with plenty of high-end shopping, exquisite dining, and hot nightlife action. The city's 16 miles of coastline provide plenty of room to retreat.

Don't Miss

Best Outdoor Excursion: Rent a kayak from one of the vendors at Playa La Ropa, less than eight miles away. Maneuver your vessel through colorful reefs and abundant marine life to explore the secluded coves scattered along the coastline.
Rentals from $15.

Where to Eat: Less than five miles away, Villa de la Selva's trio of terraces makes for gorgeous, elevated ocean views. The menu of Mediterranean-Mexican fusion dishes includes jumbo shrimp with tamarind sauce and couscous.

Drinks for two $10.

Best Day Trip: The Adventure on the Island tour starts at the resort; hop on a bicycle and scoot through the city's public ecological reserve, where you may encounter indigenous birds or iguanas. After the bike ride, you'll take a water taxi to Ixtapa Island, where you can kayak or snorkel; depending on the time of year, you may also spot turtles or tarantulas.
$125 per person.
