Boasting a 6-star staff, Casa Xzavian, a private boutique retreat, offers new luxury getaways in Mexico’s Nayarit. A private concierge and chef comprise part of the team attending to the needs and whims of guests, who can relax on a private beach, an oceanside patio or enjoy seaside views and breezes from almost every guestroom. Outdoor relaxation areas include a sunset palapa for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a hot tub and a resort-style infinity pool.
“I designed every inch of this retreat as if I were staying in it myself, and I am picky,” said Suzy Ginsburg, entrepreneur. “Art is featured throughout the house, including sculpture by Sergio Bustamante and other notable works. Custom made furniture, Flor designer rugs, luxury linens and hand-made chandeliers all add to the indulgent atmosphere.”
Surrounded by tropical wilderness that’s home to more than 300 bird species, verdant gardens and a Jungle Palapa nestled within the trees, the private villa compound has its own sandy beach cove. Chef-prepared meals and services include breakfast, lunch, midday snacks, dinner, wine and/or Champagne pairings, a tequila bar and tropical drinks custom tailored in advance of arrival to each guest’s preferences.
Other features of the villa are high-speed fiber optic internet and a Sonos sound system. If you can’t leave your work behind, seven individual break-out areas also make Casa Xzavian ideal for meetings and intimate corporate gatherings. The villa compound is approximately a 1.25-hour drive north of Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport.

That’s exactly what happened as a result of those three — Executive Chef Laurent Réa of Strasbourg, Philippe Placé of Chartres, and Jérôme Sérot of Lyon — meeting 20 years ago.

As a mom, you’re not allowed to pick favorites. With a growing baby in my belly and a toddler guiding my daily routines, my own favorites often take a back seat as I make the daily choice to swap healthy foods for junk food cravings and toddler tunes for windows-down, volume-up jams. But when I heard my favorite spa was relaunching its facial program, I felt zero guilt — of the mom variety or otherwise — about taking a morning off and booking myself a nice, long, rejuvenating facial at The Spa at Four Seasons Philadelphia at Comcast Center.
