Is looking at photographs good for your health? Honestly, I think it is. When I see photos of turquoise water, rocky peaks and glorious sunsets, I can almost feel my breathing calm, my heart rate slow. Now don’t get me wrong – looking at a picture of Anguilla, in the British Virgin Islands, or Costalegre, on the Pacific coast of Mexico between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo, is not the same as being there. But it makes you feel good, and that’s worth a lot.
I was thrilled to see that Las Rosadas, in Costalegre, was included in the description of one of Vogue’s quiet, off-the-grid travel destinations. Along with Sedona, Madagascar and the Galápagos Islands, Costalegre is cited for its “pristine, deserted beaches,” “golfing, polo, and horseback riding” and its 300 varieties of birds.
Las Rosadas is a 420-acre private estate property that commands approximately 1.25 miles of pristine beachfront in the heart of Chamela Bay. With all of the luxurious appeal of a remote and private shoreline, Las Rosadas is an idyllic resort with 6 bedroom suites, each with private terraces, soaring ceilings, fireplaces and wall-to-wall open-air views of the bay. Along with outdoor dining, spa treatments and whispering palms along the shore, there’s even a sea turtle sanctuary here.
For relaxation, it’s blissful; for investment, it’s sensational. I’d be happy to tell you more. But meanwhile, just look at the pictures – you’re sure to feel better.
