Riviera Nayarit, located on Mexico’s Pacific coast, may be amongst the country’s youngest destinations, but home to remote oceanfront boutique hotels and private villas in luxury five-star resorts, the area is tipped to be in read hot demand once travel restrictions are lifted.
Renowned for its matchless luxury and protected natural wonders, Riviera Nayarit stretches along 192 miles of pristine Pacific coastline framed by the majestic Sierra Madre Mountains.
Later this year, Riviera Nayarit will welcome two new five-star luxury properties – Conrad Punta de Mita and One & Only Mandarina – for those looking for isolated remote escapes whilst keeping hygiene, health, and wellness front of mind.
Accepting reservations now and opening in October 2020, Conrad Punta de Mita is a new 325-room property that will offer a tranquil retreat for guests, surrounded by palm trees and the Pacific Ocean.
Drawing influence from Mexico’s rich history and unique culture, indigenous artwork integrates with the luxurious amenities to create an environment that will allow visitors to connect authentically to nature and to the sophisticated, contemporary architectural design.
Dovetailing with the dramatic scenery, resort bungalows, pavilions and cabanas are nestled in coastal vegetation and all boast views of the aquamarine ocean, with suites offering fully-furnished kitchens and living rooms, perfect for larger groups, large patios, plunge pools, freestanding soaking tubs and outdoor showers.
Hilton’s first Conrad-branded resort property in Mexico will be set in the same private development as the Litibu Golf Course, an 18-hole experience designed by Greg Norman.
One & Only Mandarina is located just north of Punta Mita, on a spectacular cliff-side overlooking the Pacific Ocean with dramatic vistas and a lush rainforest setting.
Blending chic interiors amid the lush jungle wilderness, the resort offers a combination of 104 free-standing villas that float above the treetops or perch against the cliffs – each with their own private plunge pool.
Allowing nature to take centre stage, One & Only Mandarina has been designed and built to respect and blend with the environment. Experts were consulted on the development of the resort to minimise the effect on the existing natural landscape, and careful low-density planning has preserved the ecological importance of the destination.
In addition, the resort will feature 54 Private Homes, among the first One & Only residences in the world.
Available to own, One & Only Mandarina Private Homes offer privacy, seclusion, and comfort with unparalleled service – offering luxury resort living for a privileged few.
As well as the new additions, the Riviera Nayarit offers everything from unique oceanfront boutique hotels and private bungalows to all-inclusive luxury hotels. Visitors can enjoy their stay in popular seaside resort towns, in authentic picturesque Mexican seaside villages, or in luxe, more secluded coastal community retreats and private villa-like settings.
Located by the Sierra de Vallejo Biosphere Reserve, Imanta Resorts Punta de Mita takes a unique approach to the concept of luxury hotels by offering guests individual casas to stay in. Each property has its own individual pool and is situated at a purposeful distance from the ocean to allow baby sea turtles to hatch and travel freely. These beachfront residences, ideal for families, offer a refreshing approach to accommodation as they feature energy-saving and resource-wise systems, such as “green” roofs on the buildings and systems that improve water quality and reduce noise and air pollution.
Contrastingly, for those who prefer hotel amenities, The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, just north of Banderas Bay, offers suites ideal for couples and families. The resort boasts six restaurants, three pools, a private beach, a kid’s club, and an adults-only spa. It caters for all, whilst offering exceptional service and postcard views.
