About the property

Exclusive use of your own luxury villa with reservations of 6 to 15 suites.

Villa Savana is an extraordinary 18,000 square foot, 6 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 6 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!

Breathtaking and comfortable -the perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

A large group of friends rented Villa Savana for a winter escape and we could not have been more pleased. The staff was accommodating and helpful - they did everything from coordinate a tequila tasting, to cook us the best food we had all trip every morning, to introducing us to hidden non-touristy spots to getting us late-night tacos. The rooms were comfortable and spacious compared to where we've stayed in PV in the past. The pool area is as beautiful as it looks in pictures. The sprawling layout ensures that if you want to be partying by the pool, or relaxing with a book in a corner, you can get what you want. I can't wait to stay here again in the future.

Stunning Property with Exceptional Service

  • 5 of 5

Our entire extended family stayed at Villa Savana to celebrate our parent's anniversary. The property is amazing and we all commented to each other that everything exceeded our expectations. The staff members took care of all of our needs and by the end of the week, felt like family members themselves. I would highly recommend staying at Villa Savana. Bill will make sure all the details are perfect.

Heaven About Old Town

  • 5 of 5

This villa was better in person than on this site. The service was impeccable! We never heard "NO" when asked for anything. The food was **** (4 star), better than any of the restaurants we ate at in town, I just wanted to eat at the villa every night. The rooms were a bit sparse but clean and comfortable. Mirna, the housekeeper was creative and thorough, also placing an "animal" towel on my bed each day! Great location, we walked down into town several times, but the walk back up was too steep for me, but a taxi was cheap so that's what I did...walked into town and taxied back to the villa. Vinnie and Obie arranged transportation, ordered birthday cakes, hooked us up to go ATV riding, prepared whatever we wanted. I wish I could go back tomorrow. Fantastic once in a lifetime vacation! Thanks to all at Villa Savana!

Everything you could ask for and more....

  • 5 of 5

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.
