Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit Launches New Cactus-Based Cocktail Menu in Partnership with Vanessa Hudgens’ and Oliver Trevena’s Caliwater


Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (August 16, 2023) - Sustainably sourced from Mexico, Prickly Pear cactus is the main ingredient in the new drink brand Caliwater that is in an exciting new partnership with Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. The celebrity beverage brand started by Vanessa Hudgens and Oliver Trevena is the inspiration for a menu of cocktails and mocktails inspired by nature. Inspired by a shared commitment to sustainability and well-being, Grand Velas teamed up with Caliwater to offer antioxidant-rich beverages to resort guests that have shown an increasing demand for additional health and hydration benefits. The AAA Five Diamond Resort is the first hotel in Mexico to stock Caliwater.


Available as a new welcome amenity, at the oceanfront Aqua Bar, in suite on request and at the sultry Koi Bar, the new Caliwater drink menu includes the "Cali Spritz," a blend of watermelon Caliwater, sparkling wine rose, and a spoon of passion fruit caviar; "Passion Cali Mocktail," a non-alcoholic cocktail with passion fruit pulp, ginger syrup, lime juice, and wild prickly pear Caliwater; Cali Rita; Cali Ranch Water; Desert Mule; and Mojave Mojito. The full line of Caliwater's flavors is also available by the can. All Caliwater beverages are included in the resort's nightly rate.


"As someone who has always cherished traveling to Mexico, the opportunity to partner with such a premier resort brand like Velas Resorts is truly gratifying," said American actress Vanessa Hudgens. "We are confident that the new Caliwater beverage menu will resonate among the resort's discerning visitors."


Caliwater's benefits include:

  • Super Hydration: Caliwater contains five naturally occurring electrolytes for efficient water absorption.
  • Nutrient Powerhouse: Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that support overall health.
  • Skin Benefits: Promotes healthy, glowing skin through its hydrating properties.
  • Hangover Remedy: A natural solution to reduce the severity of hangover symptoms.


With five naturally occurring electrolytes, skin-fortifying antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties, cactus water not only boosts hydration, but also promotes health and well-being. Caliwater uses Prickly Pear cacti sustainably sourced from Mexico, which requires 80% less water than traditional crops. Additionally, the beverage is Kosher, vegan, and non-GMO.
