A Toast to Carl Emberson!


As we count down the days until the VI Punta Mita Gourmet & Golf Classic (January 28-31, 2016), it seems only fitting to pay tribute to the man who dreamed up this heavenly 3-day annual event celebrating fine dining and fun golf — two of the hallmarks of life in Punta Mita.

Carl Emberson — mastermind behind the Punta Mita Gourmet & Golf, (as well as many other Punta Mita traditions) — will be absent this year, for the first time in the event’s history. Carl recently left his position at the helm of the St. Regis Resort and moved across the country to try and re-balance the popularity of Mexico’s east coast resorts with the west coast’s acclaimed and award-laden Punta Mita (due in great part to Carl’s contributions!).

There is no doubt Carl will be missed at this week’s festivities, but as adored as he is in our community, we could do nothing other than wish him well on his new path forward.

The “well-wishing” and congratulations took the form of a dizzying array of parties celebrating Carl, capped off by St. Regis Punta Mita’s own Farewell Fiesta–which had the added highlight of welcoming its new General Manager, James Hughes.

And so, as the Punta Mita community prepares for a Gourmet & Golf sans Carl, we wanted to honor the man who made it happen, with a look at the photos of his Punta Mita family wishing him farewell!
