I’m excited to share everything you need to know about Casa Kimberly in Puerto Vallarta. This is one of my favorite places to visit whenever I go to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.
This luxurious boutique hotel is nestled in the heart of the city, with stunning views of Banderas Bay and the Sierra Madre Mountains. It’s no surprise that it was once the home-away-from-home for none other than Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, who fell in love with the place during the filming of The Night of the Iguana in 1962.
Casa Kimberly was created from the quaint casitas that Elizabeth and Richard once owned. And even though Casa Kimberly has gone through renovations, it still holds onto its rich history.
The pink marble heart-shaped tub commissioned by Elizabeth remains in place. Not to mention, the pool she and Richard both swam in is the same one you can also swim in. And the famous bridge, known as Puente del Amor, is still onsite.
This was the bridge that once connected Elizabeth’s and Richard’s casitas. He built this bridge so the two lovers could see each other without the attention from the paparazzi.
But it’s not just the history that makes Casa Kimberly so unique. This boutique hotel boasts nine stunning suites, each individually designed with spectacular antiques, crystal chandeliers, hand-painted tiles, and state-of-the-art baths. All patios offer majestic views of Puerto Vallarta!
Interested in looking at the luxury suites?!? Check them out on Casa Kimberly’s website here.
And let’s not forget about the food and drinks! Casa Kimberly has an open-air rooftop restaurant, The Iguana Restaurant and Tequila Bar. The restaurant offers traditional Mexican cuisine with a modern flare. Highly recommend the pan-seared fish fillet.
If you plan to make your way over to The Iguana Restaurant, be sure to make reservations in advance. You can find them on Open Table or head over their website here.
If you have an appreciation for beautiful architecture and design, I think you will enjoy Casa Kimberly in Puerto Vallarta. It truly captures the spirit of the glamorous lifestyle that Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton embodied.
