Capella Ixtapa

    The red-cedar door to your suite at Capella Ixtapa opens not to a room but to a view. After waving your key card and passing through the door, you step onto a thatch-roofed terrace—outfitted with a day bed and a generously sized plunge pool—that looks out to a cluster of small islands in the Pacific Ocean. Stairways and a pair of funiculars help guests navigate the steep terrain, which leads to a rocky beach below. Inside the guest rooms (accessed via sliding glass doors from the terraces), Capella Ixtapa provides flip-flops, sunscreen, beach bags, and straw hats for those who wish to make the descent to the sea. Most of the resort’s cocooning-couple clientele, however, are content simply hanging out on their decks. Accommodations Each of the 59 guest rooms enjoys an impressive ocean vista. Penthouse suites have an additional outdoor living room and bedroom and a private plunge pool. Dining Choose from three restaurants. The Penthouse suite starts at about $1,095 per night.
