An hotel in Mexico offers every amenity imaginable

There is some gorgeous new eco-design on Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit – the haute-bohemian coast north of Puerto Vallarta that’s been stealing the Riviera Maya’s thunder. But here, it dovetails with serious luxury at Imanta (www.imantamexico.com; villas from $1,200), where seven private, glass-and-stone villas form an intimate hotel offering virtually every amenity imaginable, from butlers and babysitters (par for the course) to private dance performances and whale-watching excursions (just book 24 hours in advance). Or guests can simply explore the half-mile stretch of private beach and 250 acres of jungle on which Imanta sits.
