A stay at Capella Ixtapa, is the perfect honeymoon or time to get away and experience luxurious relaxation and the finest of cuisine. Planning a destination wedding and looking for the perfect location? Capella, boasts a beautiful cliffside resort over looking the beautiful pacific coast on the outskirts of Ixtapa, Mexico. This luxurious and intimate boutique resort is noted for their stunning guest rooms, each with their own private furnished balconies, and plunge pools with panoramic views of the rugged coastline. Ok so we weren’t on our honeymoon, but we like to think we were! David and I enjoyed a week at this exclusive destination and had the opportunity to work closely with the amazing staff to design a table-scape for a private dinner on the beautiful ocean side terrace. How could I resist the beautiful bougainvillea flowers found all over the property? Few things excite me like design, and not even the scorching heat could discourage me from foraging the properties natural elements. I searched for natural finds and gathered aged coconuts and coral pieces along with washed up drift wood. Together they would create a stunning table-scape ready to host an intimate and private dinner. Speaking of dinner.. Can we talk about the incredible cuisine at Capella? We were quickly in love with their mouth watering fresh Civiche. There is a menu of sorts, but custom al-la-carte dining seemed to be the way things went. Fresh fish caught in the morning, done up any way you like it, was always the specialty and the personal connection with the chef was a nice touch. Then there was the rooms. If you never left your private oasis for the entire stay, it would still be a vacation to remember. The plunge pools heated to your liking, along with the furnished terraces, and the best room service ever, one might not venture out, but should you choose to leave, impeccable service and that cliff side infinity pool will more then satisfy. Many thanks to the entire staff and general manager Phillip for such personal service! We can’t wait to return and have plans for something special at this one-of-a-kind resort.
