There is a new, ultra-luxurious destination in a resort area considered as close to paradise as it gets. Susurros del Corazón on Mexico’s Punta de Mita is the newest property of Auberge Resorts Collection, a small, family-owned company known in the hospitality industry for developing and operating ultra-luxury inns and resorts across the Americas. The name Susurros del Corazón means “whispers of the heart.”
Punta de Mita is deservedly loved: in this part of the Riviera Nayarit in the southwestern part of the country, soft white beaches nestle between jungled cliffs. Punta Mita itself is a 1,500-acre private peninsula located on the north end of Banderas Bay in the Mexican state of Nayarit, about 10 miles north of Puerto Vallarta. This is where the songs of night birds rhyme with the rhythm of the surf, where the beaches have long, empty stretches, where every night is the night of the iguana, where swimmers and surfers can catch endless perfect waves, where the shrimp and red snapper are perfectly fresh and perfectly cooked and where architecture buffs see lots of palm-thatched roofs. With its combination of accessibility, privacy, local traditions and uncompromising luxury, it’s easy to understand why Punta de Mita has become a utopia for lavish and indulgent getaways. The peninsula houses, among other resorts, a Four Seasons, a St. Regis, two unique championship golf courses and 16 sub-communities. Now, Susurros del Corazón is redefining luxury in Punta de Mita.
The resort opened on November 3, 2022, as Auberge’s fourth Mexico property. It comprises 49 residences, 59 hotel suites, four distinct culinary concepts, a 3,000-square-foot fitness center and yoga studio, a kids’ club, an Auberge Spa and 4,600 square feet of event space, including an outdoor patio and a spacious event lawn. The three- to six-bedroom residences are perched above the water’s edge with floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the wonderful views, offering buyers a rare opportunity to own a beachfront residence with direct access to the water. As the area’s real estate market heats up, these will become ever more scarce.
The development successfully sold its 30 residences from phase One, and last year announced the second phase of development. Phase Two offers a limited selection of 19 villas, including two new, exclusive six-bedroom penthouse residences overlooking the Bay of Banderas. The second phase also considers buyer demand from the first phase, expanding the floorplan layout of its popular four-bedroom villas and introducing new two-bedroom beachfront villas.
For hotel visitors, the amenities are similar. Framing broad views of the Bahía de Banderas, rooms and suites at Susurros del Corazón are centered around three infinity-edge pools descending down to a spectacular beach unlike any other in the area. The resort’s private beach spans 1,850 linear feet of pristine sand, perfect for surfing, swimming, paddleboarding or for lounging.
What makes Susurros del Corazón different from so many other Mexican resorts is not only the physical beauty, the luxury and the lack of noisy crowds: the destination-sensitive design and the emblematic Mexican cuisine are a constant reminders of the area’s history and personality. This is a place for unscripted adventures that offer a doorway into the natural wealth, textures and customs of this coastal haven.
