The Best of the Best 2003: Undiscovered Bests - Castillos de Careyes

The term “room with a view” assumes new meaning at the Costa Careyes resort, where three majestic bluff-side villas, the Castillos de Careyes, preside over miles of pristine Mexican shoreline. Grand in scale and fully staffed, the six- to eight-bedroom private homes are at once simple, sophisticated, and whimsical. While each is unique, all are painted in vivid colors and designed with a clever blend of Mexican architecture and Italian style. One has its own natural cave, perfect for wave (or whale) watching. Another features a bridge that crosses a channel into a meditation garden.

 

Every window in every room captures cool ocean breezes and frames views of the sun setting or rising over the horizon. If the yearlong, near-perfect weather lures you outdoors, you can lounge in the open-air living area under the palapa (thatched) roof or take a dip in the infinity pool overlooking the Pacific.

The castles are available with daily rates starting at $3,000. Should you choose not to leave, they are for sale.
