Last month I embarked on an adventure to the Riviera Nayarit, Mexico to explore Marival Distinct Luxury Resort in Nuevo Vallarta. I also toured their new sister property Marival Armony in Punta De Mita.
This mini paradise is an easy three hour flight out of Los Angeles, California. This all-inclusive luxury resort is located on the beach of Nuevo Vallarta, in the Riviera Nayarit. It is just a 15 minute car ride from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport.
I have visited Nuevo Vallarta a few times before, but every time I go I discover something new. There is just so much to see and do!
Disclosure: Thank you ConnectHer Media for curating this amazing trip, and Marival Distinct for hosting me at your incredible resort. All opinions are my own.
There is a very special place in my heart for Mexico. My parents immigrated to the United States over 5o years ago from Zacatecas Mexico. I feel a deep connection with this beautiful country, and the people. It saddens me that my parents had to leave.
The gracious staff immediately greeted me with a wet towel and a delicious craft drink. The lobby was both sophisticated and comfortable.
This chic and unique resort is secluded and is in its own little paradise.

The incredible staff ensured that I felt welcomed and right at home. They greeted me with this little spread when I checked into my room. SWEET!
I felt so relaxed and maybe even a little mom guilt for leaving the kids behind. But I have realized that sometimes I need a little me time to disconnect and recharge…
The room was spacious and very elegant. It was the perfect home away from home.
The two bedroom residence is ideal for a family. The suite is modern and elegant. It had two bathrooms, fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, entertainment room, large balcony and terrace.
Marival Distinct Luxury Residences has many type of accommodations including luxurious residences, penthouses and villas.
Gourmet Food in a Luxury Resort
The dinning options at Marival Distinct are five star restaurants and are part of the all inclusive program. You can enjoy another 6 restaurants and 7 bars at Marival Emotions Resort & Suites, another resort. It is only two minutes away!
At Lemmon Grass (photo above), Chef Alfredo prepares something different every night for his guests, and he only uses fresh local ingredients. This is the perfect place if you have and adventurous palate…
The sunset from Insú Sky Rooftop Bar was just spectacular. It offers a minimalist global gourmet cuisine, craft drinks, and an unbelievable infinity pool. Ahhh take me back!
Marival Armony Resorts and Suites
On day three, we headed to Marival Armony Luxury Resort in Punta De Mita. This sister resort is a harmonious blend between the amenities and the kindness of nature…
It has comfortable rooms and suites, 281 meters (922 feet long) beachfront, five pools (one of them is an infinity pool), and five Jacuzzis, specialty restaurants, beautiful gardens, privileged views of the mountains and the bay, unique spa experiences, and of course, the personalized service is exceptional.
The suites are very different from Marival Distinct, but also just as lovely.
I loved exploring this property and I found many breathless views. I often stopped on my path to just take it all in.
At Marival Armony’s Teens Club, teenagers will find a pool table, Ping-Pong table and video games. Age 13 years of age and up have fun spot and interact with other teens. The facilities are open daily from 10:00 am to 10:30 pm.
I kept thinking about my kids, and how much I knew they would enjoy this resort.
It was so nice to sip on a Piña Colada, and look at the ocean from this private cabana…
These incredible resorts are one of a kind. Both resorts surpassed my overall expectations and I will definitely return to this magical place with my family.
