Hotelito Desconocido, Puerto Vallarta


Ready to really get away? Pack light, book a plane ticket and head to Mexico — Hotelito Desconocido, tucked away in Puerto Vallarta. Here, you’ll find refreshingly natural surroundings, crystal clear lagoons and long stretches of sandy beaches in a world free of “modern trappings” like electricity, telephones and thumping night clubs. Instead, you can wake up to the sun’s rays while sleeping lazily in your own palafito bungalow, built on stilts over an island estuary or the beach’s soft sand dunes.

Pristine perfection, this ecolodge retreat truly takes it back to basics. Indulge in yoga classes, organic cuisine at the property restaurant, or simply bask in the breeze of an alternative-powered ceiling fan. for more info.

It is UV-stabilized; and it lacks moisture absorbency, which ensures your piece will never rot, warp, crack or splinter, like traditional wood products. Color pigment is present all the way through to prevent chipping, peeling and fading. Requires absolutely no water proofing, staining or painting to maintain its beauty.
Several complimentary pieces fill out the collection.
