We found Xinalani on Gilt City and I can honestly say it was the most flawless vacation I've ever been on. The yoga classes were superb quality - challenging in the morning and perfectly restorative in the evening. The food was delicious and the property is stunning. From ever angle, the resort is picture perfect. The waves are your background...

My wife and I stumbled upon Xinalani through a Gilt City deal and it was one of the most incredible gems we've uncovered up to this point in our relationship. The entire experience at Xinalani was amazing! The transportation was handled extremely well from the airport to the marina to the Retreat itself. We had our first meal and we...

From the boat ride to arrive to the view from the resort, it's simple magical. The location is away from the busyness of Puerto Vallarta, yet the people, food and scenery continue to exemplify and the beauty found in the area. Be prepared to walk around 200 steps, but the luxury tree houses, spa and food offering offer a unique...

This place is 110% as promised. It's beautiful, the service is gracious and impeccable, the location is staggering, the "tree houses" are perfectly outfitted, and you'll leave in better shape than you came from yoga, stair climbing and, if you choose, hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, all of which I did. Eco chic suite #15 was gorgeous--off on it's...

This hotel is incredibly unique. It's located towards the end of Puerto Vallarta, far away from all the craziness. The rooms are very natural, no windows with amazing ocean views from each room. The only negative for some is the lack of ceiling fans or A/C but once you get used to it, you're good to go. The food was...

Just got back from a week at Xinalani for a retreat with my Austin-based yoga teacher. We had previously been going annually to Tulum but the seaweed problem there was overwhelming.
