Guide Review - St. Regis Punta Mita
For destination wedding seekers, specialists help coordinate menus and style the event. Remède Spa offers bridal packages/wedding day services and a spa suite for couples but no private, shared relaxation space after a treatment. Pity, because the single-sex relaxation areas are sexy and sumptuous.
The resort's three main dining options and expansive menus sate a wide variety of palates and lazy lovers may take advantage of 24-hour room service, delivered by butlers.
Which brings us to accommodations. Bathrooms are the highlight, with outdoor showers and standalone tubs flanked by candles. Unfortunately, our deluxe suite came with a cracked glass table (that wasn’t removed the next morning despite our request), a previous guest’s empty snack wrappers in the mini-bar, and balky wireless internet. These were disappointing oversights for a brand that prides itself on being meticulous.
