VERANA                                                                                                                                                            Printer friendly version


An eight room SPA boutique hotel, located in Yelapa, Jalisco

Built on a hillside overlooking the ocean with a panoramic view of the mountains deep in the Valle de la Sierra Oriental. Carved out of the Mexican jungle, it is remote and secluded, but still offers all the amenities for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Set in lush jungle overlooking México’s Pacific coast, this unique mountain-top, handcrafted retreat will take your breath away. Verana, designed like a film set by movie industry veterans Heinz Legler and Veronique Lievre, appeals to adventurous and discerning travelers seeking an out-of-the-ordinary experience encompassing a connection with nature, complete privacy and total relaxation.

A 30-minute open-air boat ride along the Pacific coast, followed by a short hike up a jungle path while donkeys carry your luggage, brings you to Verana, this unique paradise. An oasis of modern amenities where folklore and high design, nature and sophistication co-exist, creating the ultimate primitive-chic experience.

Stone pathways carved into the hillside link the infinity-edged, spring water pool, outdoor bar and restaurant with the seven casitas. Constructed with local materials, the accommodations all distinct the one from the next, feature many open-air spaces though they are uniquely designed to achieve utmost privacy. Surrounded by fan palm, citrus trees and bougainvillea, each is artfully decorated with antiques and handcrafted wooden furniture and charming found objects. All have private bathrooms, some with outdoor showers, two mosquito-netted beds and a private terrace from which to enjoy unparalleled sea and mountain views. Here nature provides the sound bytes since there are no electronics, telephones or other distractions.

Verana’s SPA which continues the indoor-outdoor theme, features romantic open-air soaking baths to enjoy by candlelight under the night sky, two palapas for lush body and face treatments, and massage, one of which seems to float above the jungle and ocean and a watsu massage pool surrounded by palm trees.
