The private beach, the fine architecture that makes it appear to cascade down the cliff side towards the sea, the 59 rooms and suites, all looking out over the Pacific, each with swimming pool on the terrace... on all sides there are clear examples of the high-class facilities on offer at this Mexican resort. The decor combines hand-crafted plaster with the solidity of stone and elegance of marble, while fine carved woods provide unique and unmatchable design that celebrates the rich heritage of the local people.
Listed as one of the top ten hotels in the country, the Capella Ixtapa includes a six thousand square metre spa facility offering a world of treatments for the guest to indulge body and soul. There are innumerable leisure activities, too, to encourage you to switch of your mobile and take a real escape from work and routine: whether it's playing golf on the nearby Itxapa greens, surfing, snorkelling, or simply enjoying the silence of this corner of Mexica and doing absolutely nothing.
The resort, just 25 minutes from Ixtapa Zihuatanejo International Airport also offers fine Mexican cuisine in the gourmet restaurant A Mares, or you can dine al fresco in Las Rocas restaurant perched on the clifftop; and, of course, you may want to sample the wide selection of tequilas available in the exclusive bar.
