Hot Nights, Cool Savings at Casa Kimberly
Pack light, live large at Casa Kimberly In the heart of Puerto Vallarta.
Casa Kimberly’s “Hot Nights Cool Savings” special invites guests to book two nights and enjoy the third free. Additionally, each day brings the special delivery of deluxe continental breakfast in the morning and complimentary cocktails and tapas in the afternoon – to be enjoyed poolside or on each suite’s private terrace.
Once the love nest of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the newly opened Casa Kimberly is nestled into the hillside of Puerto Vallarta. Taylor and Burton discovered the then small fishing village while filming Night of the Iguana as directed by John Houston. Burton was starring in the steamy saga but Taylor was his real life siren who came to keep a watchful eye on her lover (though they were both married to others at the time.) As they fell in love with each other, they fell in love with Puerto Vallarta. In 1962 Burton gifted his new bride Taylor with the house. Taylor kept the house throughout their three marriages and beyond.
Each suite is uniquely designed and appointed with fine art and antiques, some with four poster beds, claw foot tubs, private terrace Jacuzzis and breathtaking views. While fully renovated and expanded, certain elements of Casa Kimberly’s celebrated past remain intact, such as Elizabeth Taylor’s bedroom, and her pink marble, heart-shaped bathtub, which still occupy their original space and boast dazzling views of the Banderas Bay.
Dates: Through September 15, 2016
