The Handbag Bar
You’re heading out for a night on the town and realize all you have is your sand filled beach bag and oversized “travel” purse. Casa Velas offers a catalog of designer handbag rentals complimentary to guests. The collection includes 13 different styles and designers from Mont Blanc to Tory Burch to Carolina Herrera and more for a gracious 24-hour period with one of the most convenient rental processes we’ve ever encountered. Whether you’re a fashion loving millennial on a girl’s trip or a mother of the bride in town for the big day, all women can appreciate this considerate unique service
Seasonal Beer Tasting
No need to worry about traveling outside your plush retreat for libations. Casa Velas provides extremely knowledgeable personnel for a fun filled Beer & Tequila Tasting experience. While they have family friendly properties nearby, this experience is enjoyed in a peaceful adults only environment surrounded by lush botanical gardens, vibrant koi ponds, and friendly peacocks. Held weekly in the resorts botanical gardens, the beer pairings menu includes a tropical favorite German lager called Cerveza Colimita and American style pale ale called Cerveza Paramo. The selection of seasonal beers is sure to please every taste bud as the options are plentiful.
The Art Experience
Warm weather and an elegantly manicured oasis create the perfect setting for Casa Velas local resident artist, Federico Leon De La Vega’s weekly painting and wine class. A truly enjoyable experience, guests are able to tap into their inner-artist to create a personalized themed masterpiece. No need to trek down to the local souvenir boutique for art. You can create a canvas framed signature piece from the comfort of Casa Velas that will be ready to grace a new space within your home.
If painting and wine doesn’t tickle your fancy, you may enjoy the work of famous local painters as Casa Velas also offers complimentary tours of downtown Puerto Vallarta’s famed hub of galleries showcasing Mexican culture through the art of ages and unique sculptures. From contemporary to traditional there is something for all art lovers to enjoy.
If you’re not convinced yet that you truly do not have to set foot off the immaculate resort, their new Wellness Suites with personalized services may convince you. Recently unveiling two 1,350 sq. ft. wellness suites, Casa Velas provides a plethora of spa and relaxation services, fitness and health amenities all with local influences in mind, but most importantly within your own private suite. Going back to unique features and attention to detail, the suites shower is equipped with a one of a kind vitamin C sprinkler, which lightly spritzes guests on command with a warm bath of vitamin C essential oils. Other perks includes aromatherapy kits with an array of scents and oils, Nikken Keno pillows, and more.
Just minutes away from the boutique resort, you can enjoy another perk of Casa Velas at their breathtaking Ocean Club. The picturesque setting is complete with an infinity pool and luxurious cabanas at the beachfront. If this weren’t enticing enough to spend a full day creating pure social media envy through photos, the food will certainly do the job. The menu provides a variety of Mexican favorites, Asian fusion, and popular American dishes, you simply can’t go wrong. Spent enough time in this relaxing poolside setting? Looking to experience a change of scenery at their fabulous sister properties, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and Velas Vallarta are just as captivating.
