The Grand Bliss in Nuevo Vallarta, Nayarit, Mexico by AHA Universo, Arturo Hernández (Principal)

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

The name of the latest product in Grupo Vidanta’s resort portfolio says it all: The Grand Bliss. The challenge presented to architecture firm AHA Universo was to create a place where bliss could happen naturally; where guests could reconnect with a simpler, more natural state of mind, while feeling indulged and pampered. The design, therefore, was created with happiness in mind.
