Targeting a luxury market travel trend, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita recently created exclusive accommodations suited to entourage travel. With space to lodge extended family or accompanying staff, the resort’s new Coral Suite is designed to offer the utmost privacy and exceptional amenities.

“Entourage travel is a growing segment, not only among celebrities, which we certainly get our share of, but also among families and business groups,” said Christian Clerc, regional vice president and general manager. “Those typically traveling with an entourage seek privacy, luxury and the finest experiences the resort has to offer. The location, design and amenities of Coral make the suite an ideal getaway for these guests.”

The five-bedroom Coral Suite, which officials dub the most exclusive and expensive beachfront hideaway in Mexico, can be booked for $15,000 per night. The suite is tucked away at the end of the resort and fronts the white sands of Las Manzanillas beach. Designed by renowned Mexican Architect Diego Villasenor, named one of the 100 best architects in the world by Architectural Digest, the 9,150-square-foot suite offers views of the lapping surf and in-season whale watching.

Other features include a spa area, media room and a fitness center, complete with treadmill and built-in television, elliptical trainer, free weights with bench, balance balls and exercise mats. The room also boasts a 42-inch plasma television, as well as a sound system with iPod docking station.

Guests can unwind with a massage or body treatment in the suite’s personal spa area equipped with massage table and outdoor shower. Others can relax in the media room, which features theater-style reclining leather chairs, a 92-inch screen and digital surround sound. A selection of DVDs is also available.

Other suite amenities include a main living area that opens to a patio with wrap-around pool and step-out beach access complete with hammocks and a teak daybed. Clients will also find a full kitchen with a stove, refrigerator and microwave, in-wall iPod docking stations in each room, flat-screen televisions with DVD players, walk-in closets, marble baths with deep soaking tubs and a rain shower with Vichy jets.

The decor in a palate of blues and whites is meant to evoke the spirit of the sea, while the open layout allows for ocean breezes. In addition, mother-of-pearl accents and waterways wind throughout the suite.

Coral guests have a personal host on call 24/7 to assist them during their stay.

Opened in 1999, Four Seasons Punta Mita sits within the 1,500-acre Punta Mita Resort development, 45 minutes northwest of Puerto Vallarta International airport. The property includes 141 guestrooms and 32 suites housed in Mexican-style casitas. Amenities include two pool areas, an 18-hole championship golf course, the full-service Apuane Spa, three restaurants, a private resort yacht, tennis courts, the Kids For All Seasons program and a cultural center.
