“This group has been one of the leading vacation ownership developers in the world for many years as a result of its reputation for delivering high-quality products and services,” said David C.

The Grand Luxxe Nuevo Vallarta will be set amidst beautiful landscaping and overlooks Banderas Bay, a 30-mile wide stretch of water surrounded by tropical jungles and lush rain forests. Each villa will be appointed with elegant furnishings crafted from specially selected woods, granite countertops, as well as upscale appliances and electronics.
The Grand Luxxe Nuevo Vallarta will provide an ideal setting for visitors to enjoy sun, sand, and surf, in a tranquil atmosphere away from crowds and congestion.
