I’m going to be honest… the first time I heard of “Punta Mita” was from the Kim Kardashian smartphone game. That’s right, the popular app where you pretended to be in Kim Kardashian’s world back in the Summer of 2014.
Here’s a video about my 2014 addiction to Kim Kardashian (yes it’s an oldie but a goodie).
KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIAN’S IN PUNTA MITA
You can pay a fortune to stay at the same resort The Kardashians often vacation, which is Casa Aramara, or you can relax more affordable and still share the same waters, sand and sunshine as Kim Kardashian!
Whether you hate them or love them, The Kardashian’s know how to vacation. And when I heard I was vacationing in Punta Mita in Mexico, I screamed YAS with excitement.
VACATION LIKE KIM KARDASHIAN AT THESE PUNTA MITA RESORTS
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a few resorts in the area. And the two luxurious resorts that I loved the most in Punta Mita were The W Hotel Punta De Mita & The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort.
Click here for my full review of The W Hotel Punta De Mita and The St Regis Punta Mita Resort and why both resorts are also very gay-friendly.
Depending on your budget, both resorts will offer the best relaxing vacation you will ever have. Equipped with their own spa, private paradise, as well as gorgeous ocean-view rooms, both resorts will make you feel like Kim Kardashian.
However, there is a difference between the resorts; they seem designed for two different types of travellers.
W HOTEL PUNTA DE MITA RESORT
The W Hotel seems designed for millennials and people with colourful and contemporary taste (aka me).
Each day, I discovered little gems about the resort that made me say “This resort was literally made for me”. From beach bags that said “Beach Please” and neon pink coffee sleeves to bathtubs with a view and colourful Instagram spots, the W Hotel Punta De Mita is perfect for millennial couples and friends.
And honestly, I can’t wait to go back to relax, detox and reconnect with my partner again and again.

THE ST REGIS PUNTA MITA RESORT
The St Regis Punta Mita Resort seems to be more designed for couples who prefer a more glossy and dream-like vacation.
With a 5 diamond AAA awarded restaurant, a spa Oasis and prestigious beach-front, The St. Regis Resort offered the perfect Honeymoon destination vacation at a higher price.
I never got to stay overnight, even though I was welcomed to stay next time I’m in Punta Mita. I only got to do a tour of the resort, a spa experience and dinner with the hotel manager. Next time, I would love to take the offer and stay here to really experience this Resort.
Come back soon for a full Review of the St Regis Punta Mita Resort.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE RESORTS
On the other hand, The St. Regis Punta Mita resort was absolutely quiet wherever you went. Some people want absolute quietness, while others who vacation want a little bit of social fun along with peacefulness.
Therefore, if you’re like me and want to relax, but also want to party a bit, The W Hotel is the perfect spot to vacation like Kim Kardashian. None the less, The St Regis Resort is perfect for those who only want to relax in discreet tranquillity.
If I was to choose a spot to vacation for my honeymoon, I would splurge for The St Regis Resort. However, if I was to go on an annual vacation with my partner or with friends, The W Hotel Punta De Mita would be my choice. It entirely depends on your situation and how you like to vacation like a Kardashian.
