Icon Vallarta is a luxury, state of the art, and cutting edge condominium community in Puerto Vallarta created by a - world famous designer (Philippe Starck), - an internationally acclaimed architectural firm (Arquitectonica) and - first class developers (Related Group from the U.S. and Grupo Chartwell from Mexico) The result has been an award-winning development (CNBC International Property Award Winner) that has been featured in Architectural Digest for its innovative design and style.
Located on the sandy shores of Banderas Bay and equidistant between the airport and downtown, this property is as central as it gets, walking distance to shopping malls, restaurants and night clubs. Yet once past the gates, one experiences a resort-like feel with amenities, such as - lavish landscaped gardens featuring local and international art and sculptures - 400 feet infinity-edge pool with food and beverage service - jacuzzis facing the surf - beach club area with bar, dining tables and lounge chairs - private spa area with sauna and steam area - ocean-front gym with top-of-the-line cardio equipment - game area with pool and foosball tables - private 20 seat movie area
This two bedroom and two bath condo faces a long infinity-like pool with a view that extends into the bay and horizon.
The interior has been professionally decorated and includes custom furniture pieces, such as illuminated onyx nightstands, 5-6' standing mirrors, and artful headboards.
Given that the unit faces west and is on a lower level, one never needs to get out of one's seat to see the pool and the bay. One can just chill on the comfortable Italian leather sofa or kitchen stools and watch the world go by without ever needing to walk up to the floor-to-ceiling windows or out on the balcony to look below.

About: I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area, where I met my wife who is originally from Guadalajara. Subsequently, we got married on the beach in Puerto Vallarta and later dreamed of owning there. Currently, we reside in San Francisco and try to get down to Vallarta whenever we can. But when we're not there, we're happy when others have a chance to experience the beauty of Puerto Vallarta as well as the comfort of our home at Icon Vallarta.
Why Hotel Zone: After deciding to pursue the dream of owning a beachfront property in Puerto Vallarta, we looked at all the options, including the purchase of an undeveloped lot in Nayarit. In fact, when a particular land deal fell through, we reassessed our wants and needs. In doing so, we decided that we didn't want to be too far away from all of the downtown restaurants, shops and attractions, yet we didn't want to live in the bustle of the city. Moreover, we wanted something turnkey, as we didn't want to burden my father-in-law to oversee any construction. Such thoughts led our search to the Hotel Zone, which provides the most convenient and highest quality developments. By chance, one of my wife's college classmates from Guadalajara recommended Icon Vallarta and another one was also selling pre-construction units there. Having previously stayed at a hotel down the street, we were very familiar with the location. Then after seeing the stunning drawings, models and computer renderings and hearing that Philippe Starck and the Related Group were associated with the project, we were sold and knew we had to buy here.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Given that it's the only tower that faces due west, one always has a view of the endless bay and horizon. In fact, during certain times of the year, one can enjoy the sunset from anywhere in the living room. Being on the third floor, I enjoy what I call a 'lazy man's view', as I can be sitting on the couch with our favorite mobile device in hand (laptop, tablet or cell phone) and with the TV going in the background and not miss any action near the pool or in the bay. I can watch jet skis, speed boats and cruise ships go by and the fireworks at night. In addition, my wife likes the openness of the kitchen to the living room that further can extend out to the balcony as well as all the surrounding bonus space on the massive terrace off the kitchen and the bedrooms.
When I do finally decide to go outside my unit, I enjoy the resort-like amenities, such as the beautiful infinity edge pool, where I can sun bathe and be served a beverage; the jacuzzi, where I can soak and watch the surf; the beach bar, where I can have a cocktail at sunset; and the restaurants for breakfast or lunch.
And when I'm ready to leave the grounds, a convience store (Oxxo) is just outside the gate as well as a great breakfast place, along with a major supermarket that's just a block away.
