Hailed by Forbes as “the ultimate luxury travel destination,” Punta Mita is also one of Mexico’s top destinations for weddings and honeymoons. This private peninsula attracts A-list celebrities from around the world, with its ideal geographic location, close proximity to nearly a dozen airports, and its exclusive airport terminal for private jets. Although Punta Mita is located in Nayarit, one of the smaller states in Mexico, it is ripe with crystal clear waters, undisturbed nature, and a bounty of wildlife. Factor in some luxury resorts and the highest standards of service, and it’s no wonder why Punta Mita weddings are so popular amongst couples who are planning a luxury destination wedding experience.

Punta Mita as a Wedding Destination

For couples and wedding guests traveling from North America, Punta Mita is a very convenient wedding destination. The peninsula gives visitors the feeling of a remote and exclusive retreat in a different country, but without the 12+ hour plane ride. Even during its peak tourist season, frequent visitors to Punta Mita often mention how quiet and relaxing the region remains.

When choosing a wedding destination, it’s usually best to choose a place that offers a wide variety of activities and experiences for guests to enjoy. Punta Mita truly has something for everyone – from underwater adventurers, to golfers, to foodies, to luxury spa aficionados.

Puna Mita is also the perfect wedding destination for those who want a tropical getaway during the cooler holiday months. The rainy season in Punta Mita is June through October, while visitors can expect picture-perfect weather from November to May. During those months, the region comes to life with discerning couples traveling from abroad to host the most spectacular luxury weddings in Mexico; and one of their favorite wedding resorts is the iconic St. Regis Punta Mita.

The St. Regis Punta Mita

The St. Regis Punta Mita is one of only two luxury resorts on the 1500-acre peninsula, catering to those with a taste for refinement and an effortless sense of style. Its exclusivity and ambiance of timeless luxury, however, does not take away from the warm welcome visitors receive upon arrival.

Couples and their guests will love checking in to the well-appointed rooms, which reflect the resort’s connection with its natural, Riviera Nayarit surroundings. Designed according to the concept of Mexican-Mediterranean architecture, all 120 rooms and suites display a strategic use of color, lighting, and natural elements. This alludes to the mysticism of Mexico’s Haciendas, creating a complete sense of relaxation.

The resort is located on 22 lush acres, making it an intimate and enchanting oasis for travelers. There’s also a variety of restaurants and dining options, so visitors can spend an entire honeymoon or wedding week on the property without ever having to leave the resort. Some of the resort’s culinary offerings include Sea Breeze Restaurant & Bar, featuring Latin and European flavors with locally grown produce, choice-cut Angus beef, and freshly caught fish. Mita Mary Boat Bar & Bistro has all the charm and deliciousness of a favorite food truck, serving up fresh seafood in a casual atmosphere. Carolina showcases Mexican-style fine dining and is the only dining experience in Punta Mita that has won a AAA Five Diamond Award. For a more understated eatery, Altamira Cantina Gourmet pays homage to the lively cantinas that can be found throughout Mexico. And Las Marietas Restaurant & Bar is a casual setting for indulging in authentic Mexican and international dishes.

One of the resort’s crowning glories is the Remède Spa, which is a positively restorative Punta Mita experience – not to mention, an absolute “must” for any wedding weekend or honeymoon. From relaxation gardens to plunge pools, guests can customize their spa day journeys and enjoy the amenities between massages, nail treatments, and facials. There’s also a Couple’s Luxury Suite, which is perfect for newlyweds who want to linger onsite after the wedding and enjoy some much-needed relaxation.

Luxury Punta Mita Weddings

There’s a reason why celebrity wedding planners from around the world coordinate luxury Punta Mita weddings at the St. Regis every year. It’s a property and team that simply excels in curating a personalized and bespoke destination wedding experience. Onsite wedding coordinators are available, as well as special offers for couples who choose to get married at the resort.

The St. Regis Punta Mita team recommends booking a wedding at least a year in advance, which will give couples the best chance at securing their ideal date. Once the contract is signed, couples will receive two complimentary nights at the resort so they can visit for onsite wedding planning. There is also a complimentary menu tasting, and wedding menus can be completely customized.

Punta Mita Wedding Venues

Some of the best Punta Mita wedding venues and spaces are located right onsite at The St. Regis. The resort’s pool areas include Marietas and Arecas, and beach weddings may be held at Sea Breeze Beach. There is also a ballroom for an indoor reception or afterparty.

With the resort’s 120 guestrooms and accommodation capacity of 300, buyouts are available, making it even easier for couples and their planners to get creative about which spaces they use throughout the wedding weekend. Some couples even opt to get married on the 18th hole of the golf course. The spaces are transformative enough to serve multiple purposes over the course of several days, while also maintaining a nice flow between events on the wedding day itself. Other events may include a welcome beach picnic in the sand or a farewell brunch at one of the property’s restaurants.

Live Exquisite

The St. Regis hotel collection revolves around a simple but all-encompassing concept: Live Exquisite. In Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit, this adds an extra layer of luxury to Punta Mita weddings.

All guests at The St. Regis Punta Mita are offered a personal butler, which is only the first step in making it easier for visitors to carve out their own exquisite experience. To live exquisite is to savor, enjoy, explore, and appreciate every moment to the fullest. For some visitors, this may mean scuba diving at the protected Marietas Islands Marine Reserve. For others, it may mean taking a canopy tour of Mexico’s mystical jungles and observing wildlife from 90 feet above the forest floor.

There are so many cooking classes, tequila tastings, baby turtle releases, spa treatments, and lounge sessions by the pool to enjoy at The St. Regis Punta Mita. One wedding weekend or honeymoon trip is hardly enough, which is why so many visitors return to the resort year after year. It’s a wonderful way to unplug from daily life, tune in to the beautiful energy of Punta Mita, and live in the most exquisite way.
