Welcome to Ixtapa and the beautiful beachfront Amara Ixtapa resort condominium.
Amara Ixtapa is one of the newest condo developments in Ixtapa and has the best location: right on the beach in Ixtapa and across the street from shopping, restaurants and clubs; five minutes from Zihuatanejo and twenty minutes from the airport.
This four plus bedroom, five bath private residence is one of only thirty in the tower and only ninety on the whole complex ensuring a peaceful getaway from crowded hotels and mega condo complexes. Situated on the third level, it is an easy walk up the steps from the beach, gardens and pools, or use one of two elevators that drop you off right outside your door. It has more than 2200 sq. ft of living space including the full length terrace with walk out access from the living/dining area, and both master suites.
From the moment you enter the condo, you are embraced by the openness of the room and the floor to ceiling windows that bring the outside in. The doors can be fully opened to the left or right giving the feeling of being nestled within the palms with views to the open ocean.
Tastefully decorated with furniture and decor that compliments the views, the room invites you to relax on one of two full size sofas, and enjoy the sights and sounds of this tropical paradise. For your entertainment, a 42" plasma TV and BluRay/DVD home theater system is available. You can watch satellite TV, put in a BluRay/DVD (we have a few or bring your own) or CD, or listen to one of the digital satellite music stations.
Free and secure wireless network service is available in the condo and throughout the grounds so you can stay connected with the world while enjoying the paradise of Ixtapa.
With four private bedroom suites capable of accommodating up to 9 persons, there is plenty of privacy for everyone in your party.
There are two master suites with king beds, private baths, and floor to ceiling sliding, wall to wall windows providing beautiful ocean views, ocean breezes and the soothing sounds of the waves on the beach. The master suites are equipped with high quality linens including luxurious Egyptian cotton towels and 400 plus thread count sheets. All bathrooms are equipped with hairdryers and the showers are equipped with dispensers filled with soap, shampoo and conditioner for your convenience.
The third and fourth bedrooms have town and mountain views. The third bedroom has one queen and one twin bed with a private bath. The fourth bedroom has one queen bed with its own bath that is also accessible from the living area. All bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning units for your comfort.
For additional sleeping accommodations, the service quarters has one twin bed and a private bath. This is also where you will find the full size washer and dryer.
The kitchen is fully equipped with first class stainless appliances and everything you need to prepare a quiet meal at home, if you decide not to take advantage of the dining opportunities just outside your door. There are utensils and dishes to cover at least two meals before needing to run the dishwasher. A blender, coffee grinder and maker, toaster oven and even a large George Foreman grill are available for your convenience. The quality pots, pans and utensils should satisfy the needs of the cook in your party, or you can hire a cook by the day to shop and prepare your meals for you (limited availability).
All water in the condo is purified so you can take chilled water and ice from the refrigerator or any tap with confidence.
Amara Ixtapa amenities include:
There are three pools to suit your individual preferences including an adult infinity edge pool, family infinity edge pool and toddler wading pool. The infinity pools border the beach making it possible to hang on the edge and enjoy the views and people watch. In the condo you will also find a few floatables, a boogie board and toys for use at the beach and pool.
The private beach area has shady palapas and chairs and is right next to a watersports provider who offers jetskis, banana rides and parasailing. A short walk down the beach, you can get a one hour massage in a shaded hut right on the beach for about $20, or even go swimming with dolphins.
The poolside palapa bar offers very reasonably priced (from about $1 USD for a beer to $3 USD for top-shelf mixed drinks), snacks, shady tables and endless views.
There are also beautifully landscaped gardens with beautiful flowers and palms.
A gym, and paddle tennis courts are also available.
The complex is covered by 24 hour gated security.

We had a wonderful month stay. Craig was awesome to deal with and Valentin the manager in Ixtapa was also totally accommodating !
Everything you needed was available to you. The kitchen was equipped with everything...right down to a rolling pin!
We have stayed at amara several times, this being the first time at the Kirby residence and the property is amazing and so beautifully kept.
Definately a slice of paradise!!

I stayed in amara with other 7 friends and had a spectacular weekend. It's ideally located, close to everything you need with the privacy you don't get in a hotel. The pool is great and the condo is the most cozy, confortable and equiped I've stayed in. I rated the Service with 4 stars because the pool bar was limited in its service (low season), but the personnel working in amara is very helpful. Thanks!

My extended family and I spent a wonderful week in Ixtapa at the ocean front amara Condo. The Condo is spacious and well appointed and each bedroom has an attached bathroom, giving each party some private space. The ocean view deck runs the length of the condo and was a great spot for breakfast and afternoon relaxation. This location worked well as we had a mixed multi generational group of 20's, 40's, 50's and 80's. The pool area is very nice and the friendly bar staff is always there to bring you something. There is a long beach right outside the pool area for morning walks and rental of ocean toys. There are small stores and restaurants across the street for those that like to venture off the property. We enjoyed the convenience of the fully appointed kitchen to prepare our family style meals. The us based owners were very easy to work with in making the travel arrangements. We will make plans for a return trip here soon.
