The Present Moment Property

Gourmet Spa Cuisine

  • Pasta
  • Salmon w/ Lemon

With the extensive coastline of the Mexican Riviera, hundreds of different types of fish and shellfish contribute to the ocean's rich bounty. After the heavy rains of the summer and autumn seasons, the farmers harvest delicious crops of organic vegetables in a colorful array of tastes and textures. Combining only the freshest of Mother Nature's natural ingredients, the chef's of Present Moment's kitchen intertwine the heart and soul of Spa Cuisine to create dishes that linger both on the palette and on the mind. Imagine a forkful of robust Ensalada Bacalao; a vibrant plate of tangy Swordfish Escabeche with addictive crunchy tostones, the sumptuous flavor of plantain-crusted Mahimahi with a sweet and savory tropical salsa....all cooked to order. By using an extraordinary combination of local ingredients, our creative curiosity results in bringing you some of the most complex, tantalizing and memorable cuisine on the coast.  Your vacation to Present Moment will be a vacation for your palate as well!

Present Moment's healthy Cuisine is a delicious Intercontinental Fusion style featuring fresh caught Seafood, Vegetarian specialties, regional Latin American dishes, Asian delicacies, and house made Deserts. We also serve a wide variety of mouthwatering Smoothies and Elixirs, and will gladly create special meals for our guests who follow Detox Programs or special dietary menus. Our restaurant has two levels, one directly on the sand, while the other cantilevers over the beach. Our bar boasts an International Wine List compiled from over 70 Vineyards, and our Tequila menu represents more than 50 of the top distilleries in Mexico. Bon appetite!

Testimonials

"My week of vacation at Present Moment was magical! The food divine! The service - always with a smile radiating from the heart. I could taste in every bite the joy, love and harmony that went into preparing each dish. Presentation of the meals; innovation and beauty itself. I came here to be nurtured and taken care of and I felt the Universe conspiring with me in a big way to give just that at Present Moment. Every preference of mine has been met, and the loving attention bestowed upon me from each precious light has left me most grateful. I'll close with both belly and heart filled with love."

Yoga Pavilion

Our open air yoga pavilion is at the heart of the retreat, gracefully suspended on stilts above the beach. With ample room for thirty practitioners, all yogis receive the space needed to comfortably practice a wide range of postures. As brown pelicans swoop and dive for their morning meal before your eyes and nature fills your senses, the Pacific Ocean provides a dramatic backdrop for a group class or private instruction. To screen out the sometimes intense heat of our tropical setting, we have constructed a hand woven canopy for the protection of even the fairest complexion.

Meditation Gardens

Meditation is one of the best ways to rejuvenate the spirit, open the heart, relax into your vacation and simply let go. Our private and intimate meditation gardens put you in touch with the elements. We create a personal, spiritual sanctuary using the indigenous plants and stones of Mexico. These healing gardens inspire balance and a sense of peace as you explore your inner self.

The open-air yoga pavilion at the heart of this unique resort is gracefully suspended on stilts above the beach. The pavilion accommodates classes of up to thirty people or you can choose a private session. In addition, we have constructed a hand woven canopy to protect even the fairest yogi from the ever present Mexican sun.
