Villa Los Arcos is located just north of Mismaloya Bay on the water overlooking the infamous los arcos nature preserve, approximately 15 minutes south of exciting old ('viejo') town Puerto Vallarta.
This is truly a villa wherein the “ocean is inside the villa.” Also, two of the bedroom suites are actually built into the granite cliff which many nature experts say provides an awesome energizing experience.
Incorporating modern architecture with authentic Italian décor, this villa offers a view that will keep you spellbound! From the moment you walk through the front door and hear the rhythm of the sea and see the palapas swaying to the rhythm over the gentle ocean, you will feel the calming and soothing sea breeze and your heart and mind will truly be on vacation! Look again and you may see whales, dolphins, large sea turtles, manta rays or other sea life swimming just below the villa. Then, look again at the sunset. Breathtaking.
Villa Los Arcos has been designed with the health conscious in mind. The villa is owned and operated by a renowned integrative medical doctor, Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy. The owners have integrated a 'spa' and 'wellness' atmosphere into Villa Los Arcos. Many of the healthy amenities include one of the best “four-step” water purification systems in the world, an infrared sauna that provides healing waves, natural salt purification system for the infinity pool (no chlorine!) and a breathtaking air-conditioned exercise room with elliptical cardiac machines (exercise to views of the ocean and the Los Arcos nature preserve).
If you desire, organic foods are offered as well. No other villa in Puerto Vallarta offers all of the amenities that are offered at Villa Los Arcos. In fact, once you have “tasted” the many different types of succulent fruits and vegetables offered and selected by the Villa Los Arcos’ staff you will immediately find them simply irresistible.
Villa Los Arcos has five complete distinct master bedroom suites, each with its own full bathroom. Every suite has an uncompromising view of the Los Arcos nature preserve and the ocean. Also, all of the suites are duly appointed with luxury furniture. No detail has been ignored. In addition, all of the beds have tempur-pedic mattresses so as to insure the ultimate in comfort and a very good night sleep. Each suite is an absolute joy to stay in.
On the main level of Villa Los Arcos is the ocean-front terrace which offers a 'healthy' sparkling infinity pool, with complete privacy. Slip into the pool day or night and watch the ocean surrounding you. Now this is really relaxing! Have one of Villa Los Arcos’ staff serve you your favorite drink on the terrace or anywhere inside Villa Los Arcos [try the Mango Margarita!]... the spectacular view is always there.
Then, you must enjoy our private “sun” deck which is located just below the Villa. The deck is within feet above the ocean waves. To access the deck you will travel down 102 steps through a romantic garden setting. You will see that the sun deck is large enough for several people to sunbath or socialize, or have an intimate dinner while watching the awesome sunsets, or even large enough to hold a romantic wedding. For wedding planning purposes, the sun deck is large enough for at least 40 people (see, pictures below). The stairs and deck are also “romantically” lighted so that it can be accessed after night fall. The sun deck also offers 110 volts for your needs.
ENTERTAINMENT: Please inquire of us as to your entertainment needs. Catering, music or musical bands can be arranged. Spa treatments. We are also excited to offer at a very reasonable cost some of the best “private” spa treatments including all types of massages, facials and manicures. Our professionals will come to the Villa at a time set by you. They are highly recommended.
