Villa Violeta is a gorgeous compound of 3 casitas and a main house set in lush tropical gardens overlooking its very own private white sand cove (only 2 other houses have beach access). Every room has balconies or decks overlooking the beach below and the breathtaking coast – you will fall asleep and wake up to the sound of the waves crashing down below! The decor is a very relaxed and sophisticated blend of neutral colors furniture and fabrics, mixed with local art and exotic pieces collected from other parts of the world.
The Villa comes with a staff of super friendly English-speaking manager, chef and others, who will exceed your expectations. The food prepared by Pancho and his assistant Gato was delicious, on par with (if not better than) some of the best we have tasted in top restaurants in the US and elsewhere - make sure to try their fried fish caught a few hours earlier and the chicken mole! The property's general manager, Yesika, was always available not only to greet us on arrival and daily, but to book excursions and suggest things to explore in the area. And I only wish that I could bring home Carla, our casita's housekeeper, whose exotic flower bouquets and attention to details were amazing.
The whole area is gorgeous, with abundant sea life (whales, dolphins, turtles etc.) and friendly geckos everywhere. The village of San Pancho, a sleepy little place right on the water, is a few minutes away but if you need a little more action Sayulita is only 10 minutes further. But chances are once you are there, you will rarely want to venture beyond your own paradise: all you need to relax and be active both is within your reach. Borrow the Villa’s kayaks if lying on the white sand beach is making you too sleepy, and at sunset be sure to stretch on the yoga deck overlooking the water...
Leaving Villa Violeta was the only difficult part of the trip. Booking our next one there already!
