CasaMagna Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa is a
beachfront European Plan resort in the Marina Vallarta complex, five minutes
from Puerto Vallarta International Airport
and near championship golf courses.

"We've developed new integrated packages to respond to
different consumer preferences like, spa, golf, romance and family," says
Dennis Whitelaw, general manager of CasaMagna. "We've even created a
Tequila CasaMagna Package—an introduction to the tequila culture in Mexico."
Guests at the resort won't have to go very far to immerse themselves in tequila
culture—the resort has 117 different by-the-glass tequilas. Special

Whitelaw notes that 14 percent of the resort's business
comes from retail travel agents, and 23 percent from agents booking through a
wholesaler. Seventy percent of the resort's business is from the U.S., and the
repeat rate is around 50 percent. Whitelaw recommends agents book 30 to 90 days
in advance; for Easter and Christmas, 90 to 120 days out.

The new Ohtli Spa offers treatments utilizing Huichol tribal
tradition. The space comprises 12 multi-functional treatment rooms, relaxation
lounges with hydrotherapy circuits, a free-form pool designed for various
hydrotherapies, gym, beauty salon and boutique. The Ohtli gym has plasma
screens on all equipment, an indoor pool and fitness classes ranging from Hatha
Yoga, Boot Camp and Cardio Box to outdoor activities such as the Sunrise Walk,
Sierra Madre Botanical Walk and horseback riding.

Ohtli Spa also has a juice bar offering a variety of
alcohol-free agave nectar juices as well as iced teas infused with the native
Hibiscus flower. The spa's signature drink "Agua de amor," is based

researcher Dr. Masaru Emoto. The drink is prepared in a special dispenser
containing pink crystal quartz; the dispenser also has the word
"love" written on it in 13 languages. A standout feature at the spa
is the Iyari Grand Luxury Suite, a 280-square-foot private room designed for
couples, small groups or celebrities seeking anonymity.

A variety of Specialty Weeks are scheduled at the spa; these
