If you are looking for beauty, intimacy, tranquility and privacy, the Verana Hotel will give you all four. Each house or bungalow is designed with its own character and blends with the landscape and environment. It is located in Yelapa, a small village hours from Puerto Vallarta, that has no roads or cars. Everything is accessed by boat, mule or foot. Upon arrival, guests are greeted at the beach with mules to take them and their luggage to the hillside lodges.

Each bungalow has a private garden, terrace and magnificent views. Each has its own bathroom, and for added comfort, beds are fitted with mosquito nets. The retreats have electricity, but those wanting a more authentic jungle experience can just use the oil lamps. Everything comes with a touch of luxury, creating a chic and wild environment.

Yelapa is a small village with a few good restaurants, grocery stores and a lively beach. On Saturday nights, it's all about dancing at the Yacht Club.

Treat yourself to Verana's specialty spa treatments, sure to make you smile with contentment. Start your day with the Coconut and Sugar Scrub to wash away dry skin. Next, enjoy the refreshing Banana & Avocado Facial followed by the unique Volcanic Hot Stone Massage using lavender oil. Finally, enjoy a warm Milk & Honey Bath.
