Celebrating 20 years of Punta Mita, Riviera Nayarit’s ultra-luxury destination

Punta Mita, the ultra-luxury destination in the Riviera Nayarit, will celebrate its 20th anniversary in December during a weekend filled with festivities that reflect its journey and major achievements of the last two decades. During that time, it has positioned itself as Mexico’s most exclusive destination.

From December 6-8, invitees to this grand party will enjoy experiences representing the pillars this idyllic destination surrounded by Pacific beaches offers its visitors: gastronomy, fashion, and art. The festivities begin with an inaugural celebration and a gala dinner at the iconic Kupuri Beach Club.

Over these past 20 years, Punta Mita has become known for its culinary edge and the way it celebrates the flavors of the Riviera Nayarit. During the gala dinner, the award-winning chefs of the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita and The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, along with the chefs from Sufi and the culinary teams from the prestigious beach clubs, will all work together to create a menu representing the destination’s journey, celebrating the present, and showing the path still to follow.

Exclusive limited edition collections—created and inspired by nature and this incredible destination’s lifestyle—representing the variety of Mexican fashion will be on display during a trunk show for CIHUAH, starring designers Raquel Orozco, Lydia Lavín, Anine Bing, and Vanessa Guckel. The award-winning NO NAME contemporary art exhibition will have a pop up of its pieces. These attain their value from their quality: they are post-card-sized works of art that are sold anonymously with the authors’ names revealed afterward. The money gathered during the Gala from the artwork and designs are earmarked for the Punta de Mita Foundation and PEACE Punta de Mita.

Among the many activities is the opening of the PADI Center in the Sufi Ocean Club, where invitees will find dive instruction, equipment, and opportunities to practice the sport. The celebration continues with the inauguration of the Punta Mita Surf Club, located in the hottest surf spot in Punta Mita. This beach club is sure to become a favorite hangout.

A celebration of Punta Mita’s 20 years would not be the same without including its two world-renowned golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and the new driving range, an integral part of the Punta Mita lifestyle. The more competitive players can participate in the Stableford individual tournament, while those who just want to enjoy the view are invited to play the more relaxed Scramble tournament. Both options are to be played on 18 holes and will compete for the 20th Anniversary Cup in each category, followed by a lunch and awards ceremony.

On Sunday, December 8, the celebration will culminate with chefs from Punta Mita and Punta de Mita offering their most iconic dishes, as well as what’s new for the upcoming season. This event takes place during the seventh edition of the Flavors of Punta Mita at the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, followed by a fashion show for guests of this majestic resort.

Last but not least, renowned publishing house Assouline in collaboration with Punta Mita, will present its latest book focused on the lifestyle and key pillars of this luxurious destination.

“Punta Mita never disappoints; we are committed to excellence every day of the year,” said Carl Emberson, marketing and operations director for Punta Mita.

The Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) and the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) congratulate Punta Mita for 20 years as one of the most precious gems of Mexico’s Pacific Treasure and its contribution to the positioning of this destination as one of the most important in the world.
