Ever since Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor fell head over heals in love in Puerto Vallarta, couples from all over have traveled there to revel in romance and relaxation. Super friendly people, world-class restaurants, tempting shops, five-star hotels, and jaw-dropping scenery are just a few of the things that have made Puerto Vallarta one of the most popular wedding and honeymoon destinations on earth. We think that what makes it one of the best is that in spite of its popularity, Puerto Vallarta has retained its beauty and cultural authenticity throughout the years.
One particularly special place that epitomizes the citys most charming virtues is the Hacienda San Angel. This gorgeous property is actually 3 villas, one of which originally belonged to Mr. Burton himself, linked by beautiful walkways, gardens, and verandas. Widely considered to be one of the best boutique hotels in the world, the hacienda boasts a stunning hillside view of the Bay of Banderas crowned by the picturesque Lady of Guadalupe Church, 3 opulent swimming pools, museum quality furnishings, in room spa services, and unparalleled gourmet food. The service is impeccable and the ambience so heavenly it simply defies description.
In November, Hacienda San Angel will unveil its new wedding chapel, making the hotel THE place to get married in Puerto Vallarta. Lucky couples can expect every detail they desire to be expertly handled by the on-site Clef dOr Concierge, one of only 60 in all of Mexico, so planning a wedding there is simply a breeze. Rumors of the opening are sweeping through Puerto Vallarta and beyond, so book now for your 2008 or 2009 wedding.
