Setting

Costa del Corazon

The Auberge Resorts Collection’s Susurros del Corazon roughly translates to ‘whispers of the heart’, whispers which are sure to accompany any stay at this blissed-out resort on Nayarit’s Bay of Banderas. And it’s not just the heart that whispers around here: you’ll hear whispers of the ocean as it laps at your feet on the private beach, whispers of gratified taste buds as forks tuck into Tonatiuh Cuevas’s farmhouse cuisine, whispers of the body as it salutes the sunrise or decompresses at the Ondita spa – even the whispers of children as they immerse themselves into daily activities like Mexican folk pottery. Yep, at Susurros it’s soul-soothing whispers all around, that is, unless you opt to spend the day at the adult-only Acapulco pool, where beats from the town’s 1970s heyday will have you going loco in the best way possible.

Also

Punta Mita’s Pacific coast is said to be among Gwyn-Pal’s favourite beach getaways, and she’s not the only one – keep your eyes peeled for a long-boarding Lady Gaga or a beach bound Richard Gere.

Multiple bars and restaurants, kids’ club, fitness centre, spa, three pools, private beach, free WiFi throughout. In rooms: Bathrobes, TV, minibar.

Our favourite rooms

All ocean-facing and decorated in sandy beach-inspired tones, rooms don’t disappoint. As for size, even the standard options are exceptionally spacious. Honeymooners should opt for one of the Casitas with a plunge pool for that extra bit of privacy. Families are better served by one of the two-bedroom Suites.

Poolside

There are three: one for kids, one for relaxation, and one for adults with a penchant for all things Acapulco with comfy cabanas, an infinity edge, a swim-up bar and one hell of a soundtrack.

Spa

Set across 11 treatment rooms, Ondita seeks to forge a connection between the body, mind and ocean through the likes of their signature wave massage. For the full effect, ask for one of the two treatment rooms overlooking the bay, complete with immersive soaking tubs. Afterward, get moving with a personal trainer or guided class; choose from sunrise meditations, beach yoga, sunrise strength, elemental and Latin dance, surf lessons, bootcamp or frequency-aligning sound baths.

Packing tips

Your best disco heels for twirling the night away under the stars at a La Boquita sundown session.

Also

Fancy a quiet night in? There’s an on-site mercado stocked with local beers and pantry staples to keep you going through a movie or two.

Welcome. Little Smith's can take advantage of Morritos, the hotel’s kids’ club with daily activities such as Mexican folk-art pottery classes and hands-on cooking lessons (did someone say chocobanana?).

Best for

All ages.

Recommended rooms

The two-bedroom properties offer more space for larger families, otherwise cots and extra beds can be added to most categories.

Activities

At the hotel’s kids’ club, Morritos, little Smiths can take part in all manner of regionally-inspired activities from arts and crafts classes, nature experiences and hands-on cooking lessons. Kids between five and 12 can also go in for a three-day surf immersion programme with one of the resort’s local instructors.

Swimming pool

There’s a dedicated family pool for kids to enjoy, and plenty of watersports for them to get stuck into at the beach.

Meals

The restaurant will happily cater to the fussiest of tots – though let’s see how fussy they are when the children’s popsicle carts get wheeled out. Funny that.

No need to pack

Don’t worry about bringing along toys or games to occupy the little ones – drop them off at the resort’s Morritos and get on with sipping your way through La Boquita’s cocktail menu.

Also

Kids won’t miss out when you’re enjoying your welcome margarita – upon arrival, rooms are stocked with local cookies and Felix fruit juices to keep them happy, too.

Sustainability efforts

Dine with a conscience: all food is purchased directly from local vendors.

Dress Code

Noble nomad; think rustic, earthy linens, wicker bags and ballerina espadrilles.

Hotel restaurant

It’s no surprise, given the hotel’s coastal positioning, that the food here is similarly sea-centric. At the all-day-dining Casamilpa – the hotel’s main restaurant – you’ll find heaped plates of rustic, Mexican dishes made with seasonal vegetables from local farms, sustainably sourced meats and straight-from-the-ocean seafood. Meanwhile, the open-air taqueria La Boquita pairs heartbreaking views over the Bahía de Banderas with local lunchtime favourites like shrimp tacos, ceviche and build-your-own tlayuda with beans and farm-fresh salads. Elsewhere on the resort you can grab colourful bites (and equally colourful cocktails) at La Piscina, the adult-only Acapulco pool, and freshly made tortas, paletas and pastries – along with famously sweet-toned Mexican coffee – at Don Surf. Overseeing it all is head chef and Mexico City native Tonatiuh Cuevas whose signature farmhouse cuisine celebrates the traditional flavours of his homeland.

Hotel bar

La Boquita’s lazy lunchtimes give way to Sunset DJ sessions in the evening where agave cocktails and light bites pave the way for night-long spinning under the stars. During the day, head to the beach for a refreshing Susurros spritz, or take a swim-up sangria at the adults-only pool.

Last orders

Casamilpa is open from 7am to 11:30am, La Boquita from noon to 11:30pm, La Piscina from 10am to 7pm and Don Surf from 7am to 11am.

Room service

You bet – order anything from the dedicated menu straight to your door. The best part? It’s available 24/7.

Location

Address
Susurros del Corazon
Desarrollo El Banco Carretera a La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Km 14
Punta De Mita
63734 Nayarit
Mexico

Surrounded by jungle and bone-white beaches, you’ll find Susurros del Corazon perfectly placed along the idyllic Punta de Mita, a Hollywood hotspot just 20 minutes away from the surf-happy nightlife of trendy Sayulita.

Planes

Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International airport is a 45-minute drive away. The hotel can arrange transfers for $150-$200 per way.

Automobiles

Riviera Nayarit may well be home to Mexico’s best coastal road trips. Hire a car and judge for yourself – valet parking at the hotel is free.

Worth getting out of bed for

You’ll be hard pressed to find activities in the area that Susurros haven’t thought of first, which is why your best bet is consulting their dedicated experience curator for an itinerary. Depending on your preferences, they may suggest snorkelling on the South Bay, surfing, beachside yoga or – for the white-knuckled among you – a thrilling expedition through the canopies of the Sierra Madre Mountains concluding in a vertigo-inducing mule ride along the highest mountain point, a 1,000-foot zipline and an exhilarating waterslide back down to earth. Less bracing, but equally beautiful is their tour of Marietas island, a protected biosphere bursting with vibrant underwater life and native species of birds as well as crowd-free private beaches ideal for snorkelling and paddle boarding. Take a tasting session with La Reina, a local, female-founded brand specialising in Raicilla, tequila’s rebellious little sister often considered a Mexican ranchero moonshine, or journey off-road in a Polaris RZR to discover lesser-known villages dotted across the coast (not necessarily in that order). If you’d rather fly solo, there’s plenty of unexplored territory to be discovered a little further north: the colonial town of San Blas is home to the Fuerte de San Basilio, a pirate-repelling fort from 1760, trendy Sayulita nurtures a cool-as-you-like bar and restaurant scene, and up on Mexcaltitlán Island you’ll discover the birthplace of Aztec civilization.

Local restaurants

Expect white table cloths, white drapes and white fish at the aptly titled Tuna Blanca, Thierry Boulett’s seafood spot overlooking the Pacific. Go for the five-course tasting menu with fanciful dishes of blue bay tuna tostada and chargrilled octopus with chicatanas. At Porta Fortuna’s Restaurant Sufi, another beachside number, you’ll be treated to the likes of butterfly shrimp, homemade paella and lobster-stuffed Cornish hen. And for something a little different, Spice Market offers family-style dining in an atmospheric setting filled with rich textiles, textures and all manner of oriental excess. Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s piquant elevations of the region’s street food is inspired by his own travels throughout Southeast Asia; start with kampachi tostada, lead with Korean fried chicken bao buns and round it off with some shrimp dumpling wraps.

Local cafés

In the quaint fishing village of Cruz de Huanacaxtle, the charming, family-owned Cristi’s Cafe spins hearty brunches and breakfasts of heaped-up bagels, homemade brownies and hella-good Mexican coffee.

Local bars

You’re in luck – just twenty minutes away the surfer’s paradise of Sayulita play’s host to some of Nayarit’s most lively nocturnal establishments. For cocktail-fuelled dancing and romancing head to Aria Lounge, a two storey venue catering to shoe-gazers on the first floor and move-makers on the second. Meanwhile, a little further up the road, hops of a different kind can be found at Cerveceria Artesanal San Pancho, a craft beer joint serving a host of locally-brewed ales.
