A Focus On Wellness At The Westin Puerto Vallarta

As part of my weeklong trip with my parents to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, we had the privilege of staying at The Westin Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta (PV) for three nights. This was my first time to this beautiful resort and let me tell you, we loved it!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by our amazing host Hector and he pulled out all the stops for our welcome; some fun props for photos, a delicious non-alcoholic drink and a huge welcome sign all waiting for us. Wow, we really felt like celebrities for a moment!

After checking-in, we arrived to our fantastic room with the most wonderful view from the balcony. Not only that, there were the cutest and tastiest treats waiting for us in the room alongside some champagne. You better believe we thoroughly enjoyed these thoughtfully curated welcome gifts.

The Westin PV is a beautifully landscaped property with tall, lush, palm trees making the resort feel almost like a secluded tropical island. I really loved this about the Westin PV and I took tons of pictures every single day while walking around and lounging by the pool. We definitely enjoyed relaxing poolside as well as beachside in pergolas (what the Westin PV calls their cabanas). We had our own private pergola for the stay and we took full advantage of chilling by the water, listening to the ocean waves and dozing off in the afternoon. Definitely living our best lives!

The Westin PV has an emphasis on wellness and even has an entire program focused around it. Like other Westins, there is a focus on #sleepwell with the Heavenly Beds in all the rooms as well as #eatwell with healthier culinary options (I’ll discuss more about this later). We were so lucky to get to experience some of the great amenities and wellness offers throughout the resort. Here are some of the fun things we were up to during our stay:

Sunrise Yoga Class- We enjoyed an early yoga class in the wellness center with a specially trained yoga instructor. It was a great way to stretch and start our morning on a positive note.

Beachside massages- Quite possibly one of the best experiences EVER! If you’ve never had a massage beachside, I highly recommend it, and do it at the Westin PV. My parents got Swedish massages and I received a Thai Massage (which is more stretching than a regular massage). Listening to the sounds of the ocean waves and tropical birds, with a light breeze on our skin was one of the most relaxing and rejuvenating experiences. It is a must!

Relaxation at the Spa- Even though we loved our beachside massages, we did still have to check out the spa, didn’t we?! ha ha. My Mom and I treated ourselves to facials and not only loved our treatments, but the estheticians were amazing as well. Mom and I left with glowing, radiant skin and we truly felt like a million bucks.

As I mentioned earlier, the Westin also has a special focus on lighter and healthier meal options at the restaurants throughout the resort as well as room service. Each day we were treated to some of the #eatwell concepts prepared by Chef Gerardo De la Pena. He went out of his way to showcase his amazing culinary skills and how the Westin can accommodate any dietary restriction. Our vegetarian food at each meal was next-level. Take a look:

I’ll leave you with just a few more pictures of our wonderful time at the Westin PV. I truly can not rave enough about the service, the property, the food and our overall experience. If you are looking for an escape from reality for a bit, this is your place. I promise you will love it.
