La Joya Sayulita: Luxury Retreat on Sayulita’s Hidden Beach


La Joya Sayulita is a hidden gem—a boutique hotel and retreat center hybrid located just an hour from Puerto Vallarta, on a secluded beach in Sayulita, Mexico. This elegant, intimate, and very private haven features a soothing color scheme designed to calm the nervous system. The owners have meticulously attended to every detail, making guests feel like they are on their own private island rather than in Mexico.

Established by long-time visitors to the area, La Joya embodies a laidback yet refined vibe, with exceptional food and private beach access. The founders envisioned it as a serene place for relaxation and rejuvenation, offering holistic wellness options and attentive service. La Joya was created to share this slice of paradise with the world, providing guests an inviting escape to reconnect with nature and themselves.

Wellness Options:

La Joya Sayulita emphasizes holistic well-being, offering a variety of wellness programs designed for relaxation and rejuvenation. Guests can participate in yoga and meditation sessions conducted in serene environments, allowing them to unwind and connect with their inner selves. Therapeutic massages and hydrotherapy treatments blend traditional Mexican healing practices with modern techniques, provided in a private palapa on the beach.

The Terrace, overlooking the Pacific, is an ideal space for yoga and mindfulness sessions, equipped with Manduka Pro mats, foam blocks, and straps, and perfect for hosting retreats for up to 35 people. Always filled with ice, a cold plunge is available to boost mood, improve sleep, and enhance metabolism. Hot and cold circuits are complemented by a red cedar sauna with ocean views and an aromatic steam room with essential oil diffusion.

Guests can enjoy these wellness amenities through day passes, which can be reserved online. Even if you don’t stay on the property, you can still take advantage of this sanctuary of healing.


The culinary experience at La Joya is a highlight, featuring dishes crafted by Chef Jorge Miramontes. The menu at Tekuamana, the resort’s restaurant, is inspired by Mexican traditions and emphasizes the use of organic, local, and wild ingredients.

The kitchen avoids seed oils, instead opting for ghee, avocado oil, and rendered fat, and includes house-made lacto-fermented foods, sourdough bread, and kombucha. This approach ensures a healthful and distinctive dining experience that delights the senses and nourishes the body.


La Joya Sayulita is located on a secluded beach, accessible via a short golf cart ride from the surf town of Sayulita. Sayulita is approximately 40 kilometers north of Puerto Vallarta, making it accessible by car or taxi from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport. The resort’s location provides easy access to the town’s vibrant culture while offering a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle. Visitors can enjoy the serene environment of La Joya while still being close to the lively atmosphere of Sayulita.
