Paradise found....

Grab a good pair of sunglasses....a tiny bag
that just fits a bathing suit
and nothing more....
...Find lush foliage, tropical rains, turquoise waters....
Cliff top swimming pools of incredible blues, that play off
the changing colors of the pacific....

Wind down the palapa stairs, where we find ourselves on the Mexican Riviera...
Sensual, Humid, extravagant.

Along the Gulf of mexico, where mayan and
Olmec kingdoms once flourished....
At the enchanting House that sings...La Casa Que Canto

it has eight pools that cascade into each other, as the

resort is built into a cliff...Overlooking the bay of

Zihuatanejo...


Sing it....


The poured concrete rooms can be private and cavelike...


and at once open and airy...

what ever you may need!


Are ya with me?



Beautiful open air structures with palmetto thatched roofing...
Sky and sea and pool collide into every shade of blue
on the color wheel...
and then some

Fresh caught shrimp,tuna and swordfish...
Tequilla with lime and salt. of course...


Quiet inlets...warm breezes....hammock swaying.






works for me

I've been here and you did it justice! Way better than their own website and brochures. It is just as exquisite as your words...

The Tides Zihaut is really nice too... great meal service with white linens and your feet in the sand.

You do realize I'm in Chicago, right? These photos are totally unfair.

I could use some warm temperatures at a gorgeous place like this right about now!

Indira said...

Hey Christine! I'm Tina! from TheKnot, I started following ur blog again :) Do you go or work at Nova? I think I've seen you around, but I'm not sure if it's you!

Fifi Flowers said...

I thought this place looked FAMILIAR! I didn't stay at this place, but I have stayed in Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa... it is BEAUTIFUL and wonderful! It is on the Pacific Ocean, not the Gulf of Mexico. When I was there it was soooooo charming and sooooo NOT commercial... I haven't been there in years... but I have heard that it has stayed more low-key... I hope so!
Have you been? If not, GO!

Ryannan Bryer de Hickman said...

I've been there many a time. It is truly as beautiful as the photos suggest.

Ms. Tee said...

Oh yes, I'm with you. It's beautiful!

Beautiful!

Chris said...

I NEEDED this post tonight. I'm literally sitting at my computer with a blanket wrapped around me--including over my head. I'm so cold, but this warmed me right up!

maya | springtree road said...

Mrs. B. Silly said...

It looks perfect. When's the next plane out?

Jen said...

Oooooh ... it's BEYOND heaven! I've been to Zihua a couple of times, but have never had the privilege of staying here. One of these days, my friend ... one of these days!
:-)

Stephanie said...

Look at this place...I could just travel from one of your fab spots to the next....all year long

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

I think I could tear myself away for a little journey. Though I need more than a little suitcase for my bathing suit, lol! :-)

ZOCA said...
