AMResorts recently celebrated the placing of the first cornerstone of a new 602-room resort complex in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The $150 million project introduces the first Secrets and Now Resorts & Spas properties to the popular destination.
Slated to open in summer 2012, the development represents Puerto Vallarta’s first new construction hotels in almost a decade, providing an infusion of jobs and reinvigorating a local economy which depends heavily on tourism.
The adults-only Secrets Puerto Vallarta will feature 271 guest rooms while Now Amber Puerto Vallarta, a new luxury resort, will offer 331 guest accommodations. Both properties will offer AMResorts’ award-winning Unlimited-Luxury concept, where everything is included. The complex lies on an exclusive stretch of beachfront along Banderas Bay, five minutes from downtown Puerto Vallarta and Malecón boardwalk and 15 minutes from Puerto Vallarta International Airport.
Joined by Emilio González Márquez, Jalisco governor, Salvador González Reséndiz, Puerto Vallarta’s municipal president, and other key officials, AMResorts President Alex Zozaya said, “AMResorts recognizes the tremendous opportunity we have by developing Puerto Vallarta’s first two new construction hotels in almost ten years. We are excited to continue the success that our Dreams Resorts & Spas brand has had in this destination, while also creating a stimulus to the local economy and offering new options to our discerning clients.”
