Ten Dreamy Swimming Pools Await Your Visit in Riviera Nayarit

Whenever tourists arrive at a beach destination, they not only think of spending time on the sand, but they also like to relax by a beautiful pool.

These dreamy swimming pools are the kind that can take your breath away: they’re an ode to relaxation and nature and, above all, offer luxury for every one of your senses.

We picked ten of the top pools in the Riviera Nayarit that inspire a sense of wellbeing. While they may seem simply part of a hotel, their view, scenery and design places them far above the rest.

The Royal Suites Punta Mita by Palladium
The lush scenery is the perfect frame for Las Rocas, a natural salt-water swimming pool at The Royal Suites Punta Mita by Palladium. It’s ideal for couples seeking to be closer to nature. The water is crystal clear and cool with shades of blue and green and it’s great for swimming. Consider it a romantic oasis in the sea!

Grand Luxxe Residence
Guests of Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta will enjoy some of the most beautiful pools in all of Mexico, including the very spectacular one at the Grand Luxxe Residence’s Sky Garden with a view of the Ameca River, the Sierra Madre and the Pacific Ocean. The pool is surrounded by luxurious and comfortable lounge chairs that make sunbathers feel they’re floating on air.

The St Regis Punta Mita Resort
This pool is located within the Sea Breeze Beach Club at The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, a charming venue for a day at the beach. It’s open to members of Club Punta Mita and their guests with a yearly membership. The pool has lounge chairs, butler service and access to the acclaimed Sea Breeze Restaurant and Bar—amenities that make it a favorite spot in Punta Mita.

Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit
This Nuevo Vallarta resort stands out for its luxury, services, spa, and, of course, its magnificent pool (the hotel, by the way, has a AAA Five Diamond Rating). The three-level infinity pool has a view of the ocean and is surrounded by verdant gardens, making it a peaceful and harmonious refuge.

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita
The Nuna pool, with its irregular shape and infinity edge, is this resort’s crowning jewel along with its spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. The heated pool has a wading area for children and there’s a nearby hydromassage tub. There are recliners on the pool’s ample terrace for afternoon siestas under the shade of the umbrellas or, simply, to lay back and enjoy one of the Riviera Nayarit’s famous sunsets.

W Punta de Mita
Located on the Pacific Ocean in the heart of one the most beautiful beaches in Mexico, the W Punta de Mita offers a unique hotel experience. Its WET® pool is certainly breathtaking. It has views of the beach and you can access it from the Living Room via the Huichol Path created with blue and green mosaic tiles. That path goes on for another 140 meters (150+ yards) past restaurants and the Living Room all the way to the center of the WET Deck terrace and the beach beyond.

Insú Sky Lounge at Marival Residences
Visitors get a privileged panoramic view of Banderas Bay from this one-of-a-kind infinity pool, not to mention some pretty spectacular sunsets. It’s located in the Sky Lounge of the Marival Residences Luxury Resort® and it’s ideal for families, friends or couples. Poolside dining can be had from a delicious minimalist menu and a world-class international bar serves both national and Premium brands to their guests.

Villa La Estancia
Lavish gardens and a huge, two-level free-form pool with gentle cascades, green islands and a bar are the centerpiece of Villa La Estancia Riviera Nayarit. It also has three Jacuzzis for 12 people with views of the beach. Villa La Estancia is an exclusive Four-Diamond luxury resort located on the shores of Banderas Bay, and boasts incredible service and top-notch hospitality.

B Nayar
This exclusive neighborhood was designed for a relaxed lifestyle near the sea. The Beach Club pool is perfect for a cooling dip on a hot day and a fun family outing to enjoy their “B Experience.” It also has a restaurant with a beach view, an area for R&R and a spa where guests enjoy gentle massages to the sound of the waves and the sea breeze.

Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta
The Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta has two spectacular pools, a kiddie pool and two open-air hydromassage tubs. The two main pools extend along the length of the resort, fringed by huge palm trees and dotted with lounge chairs for sunbathing and enjoying drinks from the bar. The main pool offers fun activities every day including aquatic aerobics and dancing, water polo and pool volleyball.
