Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit: Casa Kimberly

Casa Kimberly

Set high up in a warren of colonial back streets, the glamorous Casa Kimberley was originally the Spanish-style house where Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton began their romance in the 1960s when they were filming Night of the Iguana. Overlooking Banderas Bay it's a stone's throw away from the ocean and malecón (promenade) in Puerto Vallarta.

The sumptuous property is constructed from two houses which are linked by a replica of Venice's Bridge of Sighs, commissioned by Burton. All nine romantic, spacious suites are named after Taylor's films and each is uniquely and lavishly decorated, featuring hand-carved headboards and oriental rugs. The Iguana restaurant is popular with guests and non-guests.  Plenty of modern twists on Mexican classics and the imaginative use of locally-sourced ingredients make this the go-to eaterie in Puerta Vallarta and, with a nightscape to die for, you definitely need to reserve your table...

What our experts say

This glamorous hotel really is very different from the others  in the area. The intimate boutique feel comes with  excellent service and luxurious surroundings, something Elizabeth Taylor herself would have expected from her old home.
