Conde Nast Traveler: Hotel Imanta on Hot List

kicker: Boutique hotel partnership includes Telluride locals

Vogue Daily — Imanta The May issue of Conde Nast Traveler just published its 2011 hit lit of "Hot Hotels" around the world, among them the boutique resort Imanta, Punta Mita. The news hits home because Telluride locals are among the property's proud partners.

Located on Mexico's Riviera Nayarit (the coastal area north of Puerto Vallarta) and set on 250 acres of rainforest above the ocean, the cliff-clinging resort includes seven striking villas built largely from local stone, glass and cumaru, a local hardwood, (floors and sliding doors), by the green-leaning Overland Partners.

Casas feature private terraces and individual pools, bathtubs made from boulders cleared from the grounds and slab stone tables made from leftover cuttings. Public areas include a mini spa, three small restaurants, and private white-sand beach.

Just beyond Imanta is the 160,500-acre Sierra de Vallejo nature reserve for guests to explore. The pristine jungle boasts 100-foot trees, exotic birds and butterflies, jaguars and crocodiles. Other activities just down the ride apiece are biking, sea kayaking, snorkeling, sailing and yoga. About 30 – 45 minute south of Imanta are a half-dozen world-class golf resorts.

Like Telluride, Imanta is a slice of heaven of earth. Can you spell "off-season"?
