Architect Enrique Zozaya, whose million-dollar homes grace hillsides all along the Pacific Coast, used boulders, bamboo, tree trunks, and palm fronds to create this aerie above Zihuatanejo Bay. The six suites, housed in a grand villa, take full advantage of the natural setting. Pillow-covered couches in open-air living rooms face the sea; rock-walled outdoor showers splash like waterfalls amid vines and fronds. The low-key but luxurious decor incorporates rustic, handcrafted wood furniture with antiques from India and China. Silky 800-thread-count sheets and herbal toiletries—and a conspicuous lack of television—may make you want to linger in your room, but then you'd miss the multilanguage social scene around the infinity pool at sunset, the lush grounds where hammocks swing among cascades of scarlet bougainvillea, and the 30-seat restaurant, which is one of Zihua's best (advance reservations are a must). You can walk down the steep paved road to Playa la Ropa in 20 minutes—and if the sun and sea tucker you out, grab a taxi for the ride back. Children under 16 aren't allowed, unless you rent out the entire house.
