Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta is a favorite destination amongst professional golfer players, celebrities, and families worldwide who are looking to enjoy their vacation in true Vidanta-style luxury.
“I have an opportunity to travel 35 – 40 weeks a year, and to say this is special would be an understatement. So, many congratulations, Vidanta,” said John Norris, PGA TOUR Senior Vice President, Tournament Business Affairs.
Offering a unique approach to luxury hospitality rooted in Mexican warmth and heart, this spectacular paradise resort offers countless entertainment options and one-of-a-kind experiences, unparalleled golf offerings, high-end amenities, three gorgeous spas, impressive pools, a shopping center, gourmet market, and more than 35 restaurants and bars for guests to choose from.
“What I talk about many times is the hospitality and the treatment I have been given, not only here in Vidanta but also in Mexico…it has always been very special, and that’s the reason why I always keep coming back. They treat me like I’m at home, the atmosphere changes, and it’s so relaxed that it makes me want to come back,” said Jon Rahm, No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking and defending champion of the PGA TOUR Mexico Open at Vidanta.
The spacious and innovative resort is also home to the SkyDream Parks Gondola—the world’s first-ever gondola at a beach resort. In addition, Vidanta is redesigning the future of entertainment to bring to life a new universe filled with immersive adventures: VidantaWorld—theme and experiential parks for all generations. The first phase will debut later this year.
