Located on the west coast of Mexico just 30 minutes’ drive from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by RLH Properties, a company created by BK Partners, to manage Rosewood Mandarina which will open in 2019 as Rosewood’s fifth property in Mexico. The resort will be situated in the breathtaking region of Riviera Nayarit. Renowned for its diverse landscape with lagoons, rivers, volcanoes, almost 200 miles of beach along the Pacific Ocean, abundant vegetation, and mountains to the west, the Nayarit region is renowned for its diverse landscape and rich culture.
“Rosewood is excited to expand our brand further into Mexico, a leading destination for luxury travellers today,” says Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “With all the natural beauty and adventure that Riviera Nayarit has to offer, Mandarina will effortlessly embody the brand’s A Sense of Place philosophy.”
Rosewood Mandarina will offer 130 guestrooms, suites and villas with panoramic views across the mountains, beach and ocean. Guests will be able to choose from three restaurants and bars including a specialty restaurant and sunset bar as well as more informal options such as a pool grill and beach bar. The resort will offer three pools, fitness center and 10-room Spa in addition to event space. The beachfront property will draw inspiration from the local, pre-historic Huichole and Cora cultures, combining modern luxury and comfort with the riches of its extraordinary setting.
With a focus on the element of “water,” the region will provide visitors with exclusive access to three diverse environments: the beach, the lowlands and the highlands, each offering unique activities. From fishing in the winding lagoons or off the ocean coast, to learning about the agricultural foundation of the region, or taking one of many scenic hikes up the mountainside, the diverse landscape will provide a perfect backdrop for travelers to connect with nature.
Rosewood Mandarina will join a regional network of distinctive Rosewood properties in Mexico and Central America, including Rosewood Mayakoba, Rosewood San Miguel de Allende, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort, and Rosewood Puebla, which is slated to open in 2017.
We are thrilled to partner with Rosewood on this exciting project of what will become one of the best resorts in Mexico,” says Allen Sanginés-Krause, chairman of RLH Properties’ Board.
