For my last day at St. Regis Punta Mita, I wanted to do something different, like horse-back riding, ziplining or riding an ATV. I wanted to make the last day count. Click here to read about the first day, here to read about resort life on the second day and here to read about exploring the local towns on the third day. So, we had all these plans for our day but ended up doing something very predictable. Read on to find out the surprising activity I did for only the second time in my life.
This buffet was like nothing I’ve never seen. Every item seemed like the chef spent hours making it perfect and delicious.
Every item was absolutely delicious and decadent. By my fourth day, I was obsessed with their sweet crepes. They almost blew my mind by stuffing them with peanut butter. Insanity!
The item that took the cake was the french toast. French toast is so basic but the chefs at Sea Breeze made it mouth-watering. It was the best french toast I’ve ever had in my life. Yes, I said it.
So, we decided to go for a dip in the ocean, then the pool, then do an activity. Well, we kept saying we would leave the beach in the next hour. It never happened. It just never did. Add a good book to perfect weather and a touch of breeze, add liberal amounts of crystal clear water in the ocean and you have a situation that makes you want to sit your butt on a beach chair and just take it in.
We ended up spending the entire day lounging on the beach. It was delicious. I’m pretty sure the staff at St. Regis made sure we had perfect weather for our time there. I swear they were so attentive and seemed to really be invested in us having a great time. We were assigned a personal butler for each day of our trip and our butler for the day kept coming to check on us. Once we picked our chairs, someone came to lay towels on the chairs and give us a bucket of ice with bottles of water. The butler came about 3 times for the day to give us fresh ice and re-stock our water. A waiter came at different intervals to offer us yummy cocktails and snacks. We drank a cocktail of iced tea and lemonade. We snacked on sweet potato chips with hot sauce. So yummy!
It was so great to lounge on the beach for a full day. We took a walk over the golf course and walked along the rocky water path. It was great to just chat and re-connect and take in the beautiful surroundings. It was just breathtaking.
In the afternoon, we took bikes out. They’re free to borrow for guests. Helmets are also available.
This was only the second time in my life that I was riding a bicycle and I was so excited. There are bike paths all along the properties so we just followed our hearts and went riding. We paused to take in the sunset over the golf course. It was such a special moment. And yes, I did fall a couple times and land in the bushes more than a couple times. I was so proud of how much riding I did. I’ve always been afraid of going too fast and losing control but I just let go and had so much fun. One of the bikes has a kid seat so you can take your kids with you. There was also a bike with training wheels for younger kids who want to ride on their own.
We raced back to St. Regis to sit by the pool and enjoy the last of the sunset with watermelon margaritas. A butler came by with complimentary champagne and mentioned that he knew we just got married so he wanted to give us this gift from the resort. So touching!
For dinner, we decided to try the Private Dining in our room.
We ordered 4 cheese pizza and some salmon with rice on the side. As expected, it was ridiculously delicious. I usually hate blue cheese but they melted it on the pizza and it was mouth-wateringly good. We had a chill time just relaxing in our room for the last night.
