Romantic Zone Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa Savana is an extraordinary 18,000 square foot, 5 to 15 bedroom luxury villa known the world over for its classic Mexican Riviera architecture and breathtaking location. It is nestled in a lush, tropical jungle hillside, just above old Puerto Vallarta and offers unparalleled views of the Bay of Banderas and the whole of Vallarta... an ideal setting for intimate gatherings with family and friends, special events, weddings, celebrations and corporate retreats... And don't let the perspective of these photos fool you. It may look like the beach is off in the distance, but it's just around a 5 minute stroll away!

Villa Savana is available for exclusive, private rentals of as few as 5 bedrooms (double occupancy) to 15 bedrooms (38 adult guests comfortably). We pride ourselves on our unparalleled location, spectacular views, spacious accommodations, state of the art appointments, impeccable personal service and our renowned gourmet cuisine for intimate candlelit dinners to large event meal and beverage services.

From our unique, hillside location, Villa Savana has extraordinary panoramic views of the breathtaking Bay of Banderas and over 30 miles of lush tropical coastline. Our close proximity to town also ensures stunning views overlooking picturesque Puerto Vallarta featuring a sea of red roofed casitas by day, twinkling city lights in the evening and nightly firework extravaganzas over the bay.

Villa Savana is uniquely blessed to be the perfect vantage point from which to witness both glorious sunrises over the tropical mountains and incredible flaming Vallarta sunsets over the Pacific.

Nestled between the colonial seaside resort of Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding lush tropical jungle, the villa is just a short walk (5 minutes or so) from downtown Puerto Vallarta, Los Muertos Beach and Conchas Chinas beaches... or just a couple minutes by taxi.

Be our guest at Villa Savana, enjoy the royal treatment and gather memories that will last a lifetime!

Everything you could ask for and more....

We had our wedding in Puerto Valarta over the summer and stayed at Villa Savana for 8 nights. Everything about the house and service blew away our expectations. Danielle was so amazing to help coordinate everything and really was overly accomodating with all our requests.

We had between 22 people stay at the house during the week and also through a welcome party at the house for about 70 guests in total. They treated us so well and organized all the staff, food, booze etc.. to make everything so easy. Everyone was so impressed with how beautiful the house and view were. Had we known it was going to be this great, we probably would have had the whole wedding ceremony and reception there as well.

Days were basically sitting by the pool, having cocktails and listening to music. The house is great in that, all the rooms are far from the pool area so that you can sleep in or nap while it may be noisier by the pool. With the late nights in town, this was key for many folks.

The location was what made it such a great place. It was just a 10 minute walk to center of all the action so people could easily just walk down the hill and get wherever as opposed to having to organize taxis. If you don't want to walk back up the hill to return, it's only 40 pesos in a taxi which is well worth it with the humidity.

We got breakfast, lunch and dinners at the house. The food was SO GOOD! I recommend the chicken burritos, but really it was all fantastic.

I keep getting friends asking if we can repeat the trip next year as they all had the best time. Thank you Villa Savana for giving us life long memories that we will cherish forever.

Dream Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the villa, the staff and our overall experience with Villa Savana!! Our wedding was originally planned for Cabo, but due to the hurricane, we changed our plans to the villa in Puerto Vallarta. We couldn't have made a better decision!! From our first communications with Dani, to planning of the wedding, meal planning, etc. we couldn't have imagined a better wedding experience! Vinnie is the most patient, kind person, willing to fulfill even the pickiest requests! He doesn't forget a thing!! The villa is well-kept and clean, and has everything you could possibly want/need on a vacation! Our family cannot stop talking about the amazing time we all had and how everyone can't wait to go back! I would recommend this place to ANYONE- you will not be disappointed!!

Perfect spot for wedding celebration

  • 5 of 5

Villa Savana is an "old-world" elegant haven above the Romantic Zone. We took full advantage of everything the villa has to offer. With 20 of us, ranging from almost 80 to preteen, the pool and patio were always occupied, and the funicular was constantly in motion. Vinny provided fabulous bar tending and dining arrangements for us. Dani made sure that everyone of our long list of tasks was met quickly and perfectly. The villa is beautifully appointed with spacious, air-conditioned bedrooms and open welcoming sitting areas. Each floor has an area for entertainment and our children enjoyed playing the Wii when there was any down time. The dining room has spectacular views of the ocean and city, and we spent many enjoyable evenings at the bar area overlooking the city. The villa accommodated 20 people in such a fashion, that I might even allow my daughter to get married again, just so we could go back.

This was a beautiful and well maintained property!

  • 5 of 5

I really appreciated the hospitality and cleanliness of the Villa Savana. Also the location was ideal to the beach and shopping/eating. Just a short walk from all the action. I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone looking for an exotic yet, hospitable vacation away from everyday life. Not only was the villa itself charming, but also the manager, chef and staff. They went above and beyond to make our group feel welcome. Choose this one!

Your Vacation Dream Home!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Savana was a magical experience for me! The 360-degree views of the lush emerald hillside as well as stunning Banderas Bay fed my soul every day. I felt right at home and in comfort with the furnishings which are simply elegant and charming.

Dani is a wonderful hostess, attentive and considerate of all your needs. She will do all she can to make sure your stay in Puerto Vallarta is a memorable retreat of a lifetime.

Life is a passionate adventure and Villa Savana is a place where magical and delightful things just happen. Booking this villa is a YES that you’ll be celebrating for some time to come.

The Villa Savana in Puerto Vallarta is a great vacation spot! The view is spectacular as you see the entire Bay of Banderas! The location is terrific because you are only a short cab ride away from the downtown Romantica district where there are many restaurants, shops and a beautiful walk along the beach.

Dani, the general manager knows all of the great spots to go and can work with you on tours and recommendations for restaurants as well as night life. She can arrange large vans for bigger groups to keep everyone together. She is a delight to express your desires to and she knows the resources to help make it happen! A very professional general manager.

Vinnie, as Dani’s right hand man helps in a variety of ways to help make your stay comfortable. Marta; the garden and room manager makes different towel arrangements every night and keeps everything very clean and nice. Take advantage of the chef service—they can scale meals based on the food you desire. The food was fine restaurant quality at least 4 stars maybe more and they have a great menu to pick from, it was outstanding!

The Villa Savana can be a great bonding experience for your family, extended family or business associates. The architecture, along with all of the new property Improvements including a venicular that glides you up and down the multi story resort. Nice big pool with large Jacuzzi feels great after a day of quading, snorkeling ,horse-back riding—or even zip-lining-- as there are many activities. The Rhythm of the Nights show is highly recommended or the Outdoor Adventure that offers, zip lining, repelling off of a water fall, and water slides and mule ride to boot!

Highly recommend this resort—on the top of our list…We travel the world on cruise ships—this is the one place we like to stay. Thank you Danni for a fabulous experience!!
