What we like about this property

It’s where the ideas took root and the adventure began… Verana is the place that started it all, and launched what would ultimately become BoutiqueHomes.

Taking you well off the beaten track in a completely immersive experience, it says everything you need to know about our interpretation of modern living and a Chic Nomad’s sense of adventure and style. 

Description

As you approach Verana from Banderas Bay, you’ll first spy the bright orange umbrellas popping out of the jungle. As you get closer, the scene takes shape – a cluster of chic little dwellings with panoramic views of the ocean and the Valle del Sierra Madre Occidental.

Hand-built and carved out of the lush Mexican jungle by Boutique Homes founders Heinz Legler and Veronique Lievre, the hotel is remote and secluded, but still offers all of the comforts for a relaxing and totally unique getaway. The hotel is accessible only by boat from the mainland, and what it takes to get there (arriving quite stylishly on a mule from the shore!) is nothing compared to what you’ll experience when you arrive.

Cited by Vogue as “One of 7 Under-the-Radar Boutique Hotels to Know”, the hotel’s draw is its unique take on simple luxury among the breathtaking scenery. Originally intended as a single house, the project grew from the couple’s deep appreciation of nature – from images and ideas, and a passion for design and adventure. A wonder of environmental engineering and sheer human grit, the untouched jungle site was carefully shaped and meticulously designed using local materials sourced from the land. I

t evolved over time into an earthy and stylish compound of nine individual houses, a spa, and a restaurant/bar that serves the freshest of locally sourced ingredients.

Each house was designed with its own character and feel to blend with the environment, and each includes its own private outdoor space. A special place of spectacular natural beauty, Verana transports you to a private oasis of imagination, artistry and style.

Verana is for travellers looking for beauty, intimacy, tranquility, and privacy. Visit the Verana website here.

    So Stunning and Worth Every Penny
    My husband and I went to Verana for our honeymoon and found it to be the most serene and restful place we have ever experienced. The hospitality of the staff was another perk of our time there as well, we loved Chuy and Erique especially! The beauty is unparalleled there and little details of food and where you stay you will really enjoy. Some of my favorites were the little spa treats they have in your room for you to try: these natural scrubs and lotions that felt amazing on my skin. Another was the coffee and muffins brought to your room in the mornings……held in a birdcage! Everything reflected design and thoughtfulness and if you are an artist you will be very inspired! We stayed in Tea House and it was lovely, private, and the views were worth it. We spent many hours looking out at the sunrise and sunset! Also, the Evening Under The Stars package is worth every dime!!!!! I have never seen such unique beauty….all the candles, the spa bath is coconut milk and there is fresh hibiscus lemonade…..I mean, we felt like we were in paradise. Lastly, snorkeling is a must do. We went with Alex, awesome guy, and he even took us to a little private beach. And the food…….wow. It will be some of the best you have ever tasted, and you will be SOOO full from each meal. We absolutely love Verana and plan to go back for an anniversary. Bugs are not a big deal, I did get nervous about scorpions, but never saw one during my time! Verana is simple, luxurious, incredibly restful, and feels almost European- we are big fans!

    Lovely experience…

    We spend 4 lovely days in Yelapa. Verana is a dream come true. You feel like living in the nature. Everything is quiet, relaxing and peaceful. You definitely have to think about the 15 min going up and down to the port to take the boat to go anywhere. Or the 40 min walk to the beach and nearest town. Is exhausting but totally worth it. Is like the whole experience of the concept of the hotel. Food is delicious as well. We totally recommend this place.

    Traveled as a couple.

    Pampered adventure experience of a lifetime!
    When my husband bought birthday plane tickets to PV and let me plan the trip I stumbled upon this gem. It is paradise and a unique experience like none other we’ve had. We stayed in the V-House for the two of us it was maybe little too much house but the setting was secluded and incredible. Each night you walk back to your house fully lit in tea light candles, there are great little touches everywhere including coffee waiting each morning at your steps.
    Romance was through the roof on the spa evening under the stars…seriously was a night we will remember for the rest of our lives. WOW they out did even what I could have dreamed up!!
    Get the meal plan, it makes life so easy and the people you eat with each night are fun and you can engage as much or as little as you want. The chefs are doing a brilliant job especially when you take the remote location of this place into account. Expect fresh fish they probably caught that day…delicious!!!!! I fell in love with the entire staff, every single one of them was helpful and amazing. I look forward to returning and highly recommend Verana.

    Phenomenal and Gorgeous Hotel…

    Verana is a beautiful and eco-friendly hotel that is located on a side of a mountain. It has stunning views of Yelapa as well as the bay. We stayed in the V-House which was a v-shaped tree-house that was exposed to the elements so you could hear jungle noises and the waves crashing on the beach. Besides the beauty, the hotel staff, especially Fredrico and Jorge, were some of the best I’ve come across. They were friendly, willing to accommodate any request, professional, etc. And the food is excellent; it’s light Mexican fare and healthy. Verana really is a once in a lifetime experience and a must try!

    Spectacular place
    Just got back from a 4 day stay at Verana in February and it was a memorable vacation. The professional pictures hardly do it justice. Every room and common area has unbelievable views. We stayed in the pool house. The beds are comfortable and the mosquito nets are put down for you each night. They are very good quality. Even though the temps got down to the mid 60 F, we were never cold (good blankets). The sounds of the jungle are soothing and the sun isn’t too invasive in the mornings because it rises behind the ridge. I can’t say enough about the staff, Jorge, Moses and Frederico were awesome. The whole staff speaks great English and are both friendly and very attentive. One of the best things is interacting with other guests. We made several friends and enjoyed talking about the days adventures at happy hour each night. Other guests chose to keep to themselves and everyone there respects privacy. We got the meal plan, which I think is the way to go. The meals were all great. Some other reviews complained about meal cost or the final bill. I found the meal plan to be a decent value. Given the hike up to the property, trying to eat in Yelapa every night would be a burden. The drinks were reasonable for hotel prices. We brought a few bottles of wine and some tequila, which kept our final bill down. The room had a mini fridge, but beer at the resort was so affordable, it isn’t worth bringing it up. If you stayed in the Blue House, you might try eating in Yelapa (15 min. walk), since it is at the bottom of the hill. For activities, we were able to find the Yelapa Falls ourselves, I would highly recommend fishing, even if you are a beginner. They have rods, bait them and take care of removing fish from the hook, all you have to do is reel them in. We caught 12 bonitas (mackerel family) in 2 hours and they made us fresh ceviche and sashimi for lunch with our catch. We also saw whales during our trip. Some of the other guests went on the beach hopping excursion and saw whales close up, others saw them on the water taxi ride in. If it is the right season (winter) you have a chance to see whales from sea or land. We have done a few different open air resorts and houses on other trips to the Caribbean, Mexico and Costa Rica, we have enjoyed them all, but have experienced a few drawbacks like unwelcome critters or noise. Verana was the first open air resort we have stayed at that had zero drawbacks. The only noise at night was crickets, which changed to birds in the morning. We would just lay in bed and listen to the magnificent sounds. They are so far above the town that you can’t hear the dogs and roosters. Bugs were never that bad. The only critters we saw was a passive iguana who hung out on the wall above our space when the sun was out. He never moved all day.

    Beautiful, Great for Active Couples!

    This hotel is beautiful, rooms are built upon a hill with the first being just over the water, overlooking the dock. Some of the rooms do not have walls and are built into the jungle – there are insects at night. The grounds are the perfect setup for an active couples adventure as there is a path through the trees that leads to dining areas and other rooms – there are around 300 stairs and an inclined path – worth mentioning for people who are looking to relax and get around easily or for those with health concerns.

    The rooms themselves are really cool and the staff is all very helpful and kind.

    The town of Yelapa is a 20-30 minute walk along a trail, which will also lead you to beach access.

    Paradise!

    We stayed at Verana for four nights as the final part of our Mexcian holiday. Verana is beautiful, unique, charming, blissful. and such fun! We stayed in the Studio House, which we adored. The staff are simply fantastic; the food is beautiful; the bar is a lot of fun; the views will inspire you. We had the hardest time leaving and we vowed that we will return. Everything about Verana is an experience, as you would hope for in this glorious paradise.

    Spend a week, felt like forever. No option to contact the outside world was the best antidote for us. Sleeping next to the forest with nothing in between was magical.
    A perfect place in terms of location, scale and attention to service and detail.
    Its worth the long journey and the steep clime up the hill.

    This is an outstanding luxury, unique resort that exhibits an attention to detail that will satisfy the most discriminating traveler. It is mid way up the mountain, therefore unless you’re in reasonable shape for walking and climbing stairs, we’ll find it more challenging, but prehaps helpful to work off the delicous meals, The food is excellent – the chef interacts with the guests to deliver memorable meals to meet specific requests. Because each “house” is different, returning to the resort will seem new and special. The staff knows your name, and greets you each morning by name – as you are sitting at breakfast taking in the spectacular views.

    Stayed at Verana during our ongoing Trans-Americas Journey-our 200,000+ mile working road trip through North, Central and South America.

    Like a chic hippie commune high above the sea. Our room had not walls. At all. Loved it.
