Up to your ears in pressure from work? Carpal-tunnel syndrome got your forearm padded like a hockey goalie? Blood pressure up 50 points? Longing for an intimate escape? Think warm. Think Puerto Vallarta. Think Villa Bella B&B, a short 20-minute cab ride from the Puerto Vallarta Airport, and the soothing, welcoming antidote to all your woes. Villa Bella provides pickup service from the airport.
Saunter through the gate. Banana and coconut palms beckon. Walk barefoot through the rich green grass. Gaze from this hilltop retreat while La Cruz dozes under a patchwork of red tile roofs.
Lounge in a recliner while the sun roasts you like a warm nut. Dip your toes into the impossibly-blue soaking pool. Daydream the afternoon away on an air mattress. Treat yourself to a massage under the shade of a palapa.
Marvel at a myriad of colors as the sun sinks below the horizon. When night falls, sit outside and search the starlit sky for your favorite constellation.
Everything at Villa Bella conspires to let you do absolutely nothing. While there, let hostess Elsa Alba sweat the small stuff. Let her make dinner and tour reservations. Let her order taxis. You kick back and let it happen.
If you’re used to gulping down breakfast, you’ll want to linger here. Sip your favorite coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Or enjoy an iced pineapple drink. Savor ripe cantaloupe, kiwi and pineapple chunks served in a Delft-colored oval dish. Browse through a copy of Puerto Vallarta Lifestyles Magazine while you wait for thick slices of toast and eggs done your way. Sworn off sweets? Staff will bribe you with a flaky strawberry-topped pastry.
In your private living room, lie toe-to-toe with your lover on an oversized sofa. Luxuriate in the cool breeze blowing through the hacienda-style suite of rooms.
The well-stocked kitchen has everything you need should you choose to have lunch or dinner in.
Siesta anyone? A king-size bed with a towel swan welcomes you to your bedroom. High beam ceilings add to the airy yet intimate effect. Painted cupboards with palms and tucans bring the soul of Mexico inside.
Don’t get me wrong. You’ll have to make some hard decisions. Do you go on the tour you booked or do you lie in the two-person hammock reading and napping? Do you go out to dinner or do you grill fresh red snapper and veggies on the bar-be-cue? Tough decisions.
You could spend a whole evening in the bathroom thanks to the Jacuzzi tub for two. Afterwards, slip into a white terrycloth robe and read your favorite novel.
As you might expect, there’s a downside: You’re eventually gonna have to leave. When you do, though, you’ll leave relaxed. And stress-free.
