Plan A Romantic Getaway To An Enchanting And Luxurious Private Villa Along Mexico's Spectacular Pacific Coast


This Fall Couples Can Escape Together to Casa Colina Where Five-Star Services
and
Amenities Give Guests a Chance to Reconnect and Unwind

Celebrate a honeymoon, wedding anniversary, or special occasion at one of Mexico's most romantic private villas, Casa Colina, located high above the blue turquoise-colored waters of the Pacific Ocean between Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco. Couples can rediscover love and romance at this luxurious six-bedroom romantic retreat with its own staff, chef, infinity pool, Jacuzzi tub, and private security entrance.

Begin a romantic vacation with a sunset champagne toast on the villa's expansive pool deck with panoramic views of the ocean and mountainous countryside and an infinity edge pool that can be adorned with floating candles and flowers. Continue the romantic celebration with a wine dinner prepared by the villa's own chef and served in the "Top of the World Palapa" - a chic rooftop indoor/outdoor dining area with a fully-stocked bar and 250-degree views of the mountains and ocean, or in the villa's elegant indoor gourmet dining room with a fireplace, hand-laid brick cathedral ceiling, Balinese furnishings, bar area, and enormous pocket doors that room up to the outdoors with views of the lagoon and mountains. After dinner, couples can relax by the pool or enjoy a moonlit swim or time in the villa's heated Jacuzzi. Or they can simply retire to the villa's surround-sound home theatre with a 65" Panasonic plasma TV and snuggle with a movie.

Other amenities at Casa Colina include a whole-house AV system available in each room and connections for iPod; state-of-the-art, whole-house water filtration system; wireless Internet service; and L'Occitaine toiletries.

The next day, couples can spend time on the pool deck while the villa's staff prepares a delicious breakfast or they can enjoy their breakfast on the balcony of their guestroom. The rest of the day can be spent relaxing by the pool in a plush lounge chair with an umbrella, working out in the villa's state-of-the-art fitness center, or indulging in outdoor gourmet BBQ. Poolside massages can also be arranged. Or couples can go to the adjacent award-winning AAA four-diamond Isla Navidad Grand Bay Resort, which has a full-service spa and salon and a 27-hole golf course created by Robert von Hagge. Other activities near Casa Colina include:

  • Spending time at the quaint and romantic beaches in Barra de Navidad or at the famous Playa La Audiencia on Santiago Peninsula (the beach where Bo Derek's movie 10 was filmed).
  • Touring the five-million-year-old Colima volcano, which is the most active volcano in Mexico.
  • Horseback riding on the beach.
  • Kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving in the Pacific Ocean.

Surrounded by lush landscaped gardens, Casa Colina's spacious six guestrooms include impeccably designed and furnished junior and master suites with balconies, private gardens, Jacuzzi tubs, and views of the ocean and mountains. Guests might also find "romantic" surprises in their room such scattered rose petals, sparkling wine, and chocolate strawberries. Descriptions of Casa
