We've been featured as the finale episode on a new travel show! Hosted by Matt Landau, one of the world's foremost vacation rental industry experts, A Sense of Place gives a wonderful representation of the hacienda and the surrounding area. See it at senseofplaceshow, episode 13.
Situated in the private, gated, 12-acre Rancho Escondido retreat near Lo de Marcos (just 20 minutes north of Sayulita), Hacienda Antigua is an exquisite luxury property overlooking the ocean and jungle. The Hacienda is only minutes away from your usual tourist destinations. But when you arrive, it feels a world apart. The location is perfect for those who want to get away from it all, but still be close enough to play a round of golf, take a sunset sailing cruise, or dine at an authentic Mexican restaurant! Hacienda Antigua can also host your wedding or special event! Please see our event venue page for more information.
A depiction of sustainable design, Hacienda Antigua was constructed mainly of historic materials recovered from Mexican haciendas and churches too old to restore. Ancient stone, wood, and iron building materials along with antique furnishings were hand selected to add character and history, evoking the feel of a genuine hacienda during the post-classic era in the Bahia de Banderas region.
With five - eight private suites (including a penthouse suite with a private balcony), a gourmet commercial kitchen, and a 40 foot heated saltwater pool accented with traditional talavera tile and venetian glass, Hacienda Antigua is luxury redefined. It is the perfect place to relax with family and friends! Entertain in the authentic mexican cantina that opens up to a 1,000 square foot veranda. Enjoy the stunning 270-degree view of turquoise-blue waters, tropical jungles and majestic mountains. Lounge by the pool with a cold cerveza, nap on an outdoor lounge, or play a game of cards around the table while your friends or family blend up another pitcher of margaritas!
The fully equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you will need to create wonderful meals from fresh local ingredients or cater a special event for a larger group. Two commercial sinks and a commercial oven, refrigerator, and dedicated ice machine add to the functionality of this beautiful rustic kitchen. Enjoy al fresco dining in the courtyard or a more formal dinner at the 10-foot spanish colonial dining table. If you would like to arrive to a fully stocked pantry & fridge, send us a list and we will do the shopping before you arrive (for a small additional fee). At your request, a personal cook can be arranged to prepare mexican delicacies for you.
The thoughtfully laid out floor plan and incomparable ambiance is perfect for entertaining as is the expansive yard landscaped with tropical plants and a spacious grass area. It's the perfect spot for a wedding! A state-of-the art indoor/outdoor sound system provides all the technical equipment you will need for your big event! Designed and constructed to look as though it has been thriving for 500 years, hacienda antigua offers an authentic taste of mexico with five-star accommodations, features, and amenities.
Whether you are planning a family vacation, a group adventure, a company retreat, or an unforgettable wedding, Hacienda Antigua provides a first-class experience like none other. Take a trip back in time to this old-world style hacienda that offers every modern convenience. For information regarding hosting a wedding or other special event, please visit our Event Venue page
