Just 35 minutes from Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa International Airport, Hotelito at MUSA is a sprawling property and a lost world of pristine coastline and diverse landscapes on the Pacific Coast, Guerrero, Mexico, in the region of Costa Grande. Set along a one-mile stretch of undiscovered beachfront with 165 acres of palm groves and 40 kilometers of undeveloped coast, the property sits on a naturally secured peninsula. This unique escape is a launching pad to spirited nearby towns, including Juluchuca with its local delicacies of coconut candies, watermelon, and basil fields, and generational salt-harvesting; while La Barrita, Papanoa, and Puerto Vicente offer fresh seafood at charming, family-owned beachfront eateries. Petatlán, meanwhile, presents handmade straw rugs, cowboy boots, and hats, as well as a local hospital, schools, and a technology university. Nearby, ancient Mesoamerican ruins and archeological sites reveal a detailed history of the region, as does the ancient city of Xihuacan, with a museum revealing insights into the culture from more than 3,000 years ago.

Spa & Recreation
Organized adventures that maximize the property’s beach and coastal access abound and include ATV and motorcycle riding, waterfall hikes, artisans tours in Juluchuca and Petatlán, fishing adventures, beachside massage, the release of baby sea turtles at Juluchuca turtle sanctuary, salt harvesting, exploration of nearby archeological sites, horseback riding, bespoke mezcal tastings, and surfing.
Outdoor spaces are segmented into areas for rest, relaxation, or adventure—from shaded grassed areas with silken hammocks, arboretum sitting areas, organic gardens, and bird and wildlife sanctuaries, to saltwater pools with shaded daybeds, a palm wood water temple deck, and a swim-up beach on the shore of the freshwater bio pool.
Food & Drink
Steps from the beachfront, in an open-air terrace dining room overlooking the Beach Club and infinity pool, Alba offers contemporary coastal Mexican cuisine inspired by the local terroir and supported by edible, organic farms and mandala gardens. The Beach Club, meanwhile, presents a swim-up bar with poolside cocktails, snacks, and après surf drinks. A top-floor bar will let you indulge in lovely views while you sip and interact.
Conference & Meetings
Communal coworking spaces can be found throughout the hotel, with hallways, cabanas, and more designed as multiuse areas for individual refuge or casual hangouts.
In the spirit of collaboration, advanced art and music studios, media labs, workshops, and contemplation spaces will offer unrivaled resources to facilitate cutting-edge innovation for interdisciplinary makers and producers, while cultivating stronger community connections through outreach and access programs. The Hotelito at MUSA grounds are set to become an outdoor contemporary art museum, with sculpture and light gardens, and permanent and impermanent installations positioned throughout the property, interacting with the natural settings to create a highly curated arts hub. Also discover a library lounge with curated books and high-fidelity vinyl sounds; a boutique retail outlet offering curated travel essentials and procured treasures; and a wildlife reserve complete with peacocks, horses, ducks, chickens, and an arboretum.
