Celebrate Romance at Casa Kimberly: Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton's Legendary Love Nest

Celebrate Romance at Casa Kimberly: Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton's Legendary Love Nest

The story is irresistible: star-crossed lovers, who happened to be glamorous stars in the classic Hollywood universe, came to Puerto Vallarta to escape the prying eyes of the world. Though they could not fully evade cameras and curiosity, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton could live relatively normal lives in the charming, then unknown fishing village of Puerto Vallarta. The love nest they created – two adjacent casitas up on the cobblestone hillside overlooking the sea was known as Casa Kimberly. Exquisitely renovated and reimagined, Casa Kimberly, invites lovers and adventurers from around the world to experience their own unforgettable romance.

Casa Kimberly

Casa Kimberly is a labor of love and inspiration. Nine suites, a pool, boutique spa, restaurant and bar welcome guests in an understated elegant atmosphere drawn from traditional Colonial Mexican design and accented with sparks of Hollywood glamour.

While fully renovated and expanded, certain elements of Casa Kimberly’s celebrated past remain intact. “Puente Del Amor” (Bridge of Love) - a bridge that was designed as a replica of the Bridge of Sighs - still connects the two villas that together comprise Casa Kimberly. Elizabeth Taylor’s bedroom, and her commissioned pink marble, heart-shaped bathtub, still occupy their original space and enjoy magnificent views. The suite also offers a large terrace and a private pool and Jacuzzi. The pool, oblong and azure-tiled, is as it was when Taylor and Burton entertained famous friends.

Elizabeth Taylor Suite Pool

In addition to the Elizabeth Taylor Suite (pictured above), there is the pool-adjacent Richard Burton Suite, set in the star’s personal quarters across the Puente Del Amor. Each of the additional seven suites is individually designed and decorated with a mix of antiques and modern luxuries. Most suites have private terrace Jacuzzi’s and strikingly beautiful baths.  Each suite features unique elements, such as hand painted tile ceilings, brick domes, murals, claw foot tubs and patio fountains.

Iguana restaurant

The Iguana is Casa Kimberly’s fine dining restaurant, featuring a blend of modern and traditional Mexican cuisine. Open on three sides, all guests enjoy extraordinary views and fresh air while any of a dozen crystal chandeliers gently chime in the breeze. A petite tequila bar with antique mirror bar back and a selection of dozens of highly regarded and rare tequilas and mescals await guests. A resident tequila expert introduces curious visitors to the art and charms of Mexico’s most famous spirit.

Across a grand terrace and tucked into private corners are two luxurious spa suites. Each accommodates two guests and features a private Jacuzzi. Treatments highlight the natural healing powers of agave and other locally sourced ingredients.
