Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, the AAA Five Diamond property located within Mexico’s most exclusive beach community along the shores of Riviera Nayarit, announces the completion of its new Takua Event Palapa. Boasting 4,310 square feet (400 square metres) of beach-facing ballroom space, the Takua Event Palapa presents an elegant and modern venue for up to 400 guests. The USD 1.5 million Takua Event Palapa is the cornerstone in a yearly master renovation plan by owners Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (NYSE: BEE).
“Events at Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita are magical, combining Mexico’s old-world charm and the destination’s natural beauty,” says John O’Sullivan, general manager. “The Takua Event Palapa provides a new level of versatility and comfort, allowing groups to enjoy unforgettable occasions from corporate retreats to dreamdestination weddings that leverage our incredible beach backdrop and world-class amenities and services year-round.”
The Takua Event Palapa was designed by Paul Altomare, based on the work of Strategic Hotels & Resorts, Inc.’s designers, Michael Dalton and Shantel Hoeft. Featuring design sensibilities such as a thatched palapa roof and retractable walls, the Takua Event Palapa aligns seamlessly with the Resort’s authentic Mexican style and brings the dramatic beachfront and natural lighting indoors. Situated in the main building for easy access to the beach and poolside restaurant and bars, the modern space provides contemporary furnishings, lighting, carpeting and other fresh finishes along with cutting-edge technologies, including built-in screens, blackout curtains and projectors as well as wireless internet access. The Takua Event Palapa can be adapted equally well for state-of-the-art staging and audiovisual productions as for sophisticated social occasions.
With the addition of the Takua Event Palapa, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita now offers 8,000 square feet (743 square metres) of indoor meeting space and 14,000 square feet (1,300 square metres) of outdoor space,including options for spectacular events on Las Manzanillas Beach, at the Tamai Pool, or one of two famed Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses. All functions have the option of innovative catering by Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, comprised of authentic dishes that celebrate the destination, customized menus that reflect each group’s tastes, and three world-class restaurants including Aramara, Ketsi Restaurant and Bar, and Bahia by Richard Sandoval.
Opportunities to excite are endless.
