This luxury sustainable boutique hotel has twelve rooms along one mile of pristine beach on the Pacific coast of Mexico—private and secluded, yet only a 30-minute drive from Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa International airport. It's located on 200 acres, 85% of which are in a private nature reserve that includes a turtle sanctuary, archaeological site, permaculture farm, forest restoration, estuary, 1.3 kilometers of beach front and much more. The resort is designed to provide an environment that will broaden your perspective, open your heart and remind you of the interconnection between all living things. Playa Viva operates on 100% solar power, solar thermal water heating and gray-and-black water management systems, and was built with local materials and craftsmanship. All rooms have ocean views, open-air construction using traditional techniques for constant ocean breezes and decor consisting of local materials made to the highest standard of artistic craftsmanship.
