This marvelous eighth-floor penthouse—known as Penthouse del Sol—is perched high atop the Marcela Resort & Spa, pointed equally at our hillside garden with its cascading waterfalls and the curvature of the sea snug against the historic port city we call home.Penthouse de Sol features one-of-a-kind furniture and indigenous art set in a colorful king bedroom with vibrant orange walls, a classy wooden headboard, and sleek grey bedding. This penthouse villa—with its breathtaking views of the sea, old town Puerto Vallarta, and Marcela’s meticulously designed and cared for terraced gardens and waterfall—is outfitted with warm Mexican rosewood beams and ceiling.
While fully air conditioned, fans spin overhead in every room, each adorned with magnificent blown-glass sconces, a beloved staple of Marcela’s vibrant color, impeccable class, and utmost quality. The handsome decor in this rooftop boutique villa provides a naturally inviting space that is both airy and intimate, with picturesque views in nearly every direction. This penthouse is well-suited for a getaway of 3 nights or 3 weeks, although you will likely never wish to leave!
Relax and watch the sunset (or a movie on the curved 60” HDTV) from the living room outfitted with a comfortable chaise lounge sofa, and an exquisitely upholstered armchair and accompanying nesting ottoman.
Brew your morning coffee and whip up a fresh cooked breakfast in the villa’s galley kitchen with marble countertops, 6-burner stove, and oven. You’ll also find a blender, tea kettle, dishwasher, microwave, and all of the pots, pans, stone, and flatware you will need to feel completely at ease and at home. The luxurious bathroom features a cozy sunken tiled tub and rain shower head, plenty of fluffy towels, and a tile sink and toilet.
When you open all of the penthouse’s accordion doors and windows, the Pacific Ocean breeze and warm sunshine greet you and, in that moment, you will fully appreciate Marcela’s mission to seamlessly blend the natural and built worlds as a healthy way of rejuvenating the body and reinvigorating the mind.
Finally, we come to the star of the show—the villa’s outdoor hot tub Jacuzzi offering sea, sunset, and garden views! You’ll be drawn into its tempting warm water and photogenic corner perch, high above the entire property every morning, noon, and night of your stay. As you dry off, read a book and relax further on the two spa lounge chairs.
Providing every convenience, Penthouse del Sol additionally offers a full-size washer and dryer and complimentary Wi-Fi.
All of our resort guests additionally get access to our five swimming pools, Jacuzzi at pool level, on-campus gourmet restaurant, room service, 5-star-resort-level beauty shop and spa, full fitness
