Since one of the world’s first collection of One&Only villas to own was announced earlier this year at Mandarina, sales momentum and worldwide press have been outstanding. Situated within the stunning resort and residential destination on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, the 55 ultra-private villas neighbor the new One&Only Mandarina beach resort and are surrounded by sandy shores, tropical jungle, mountain peaks and lush flatlands, less than one hour north of Puerto Vallarta.
Phase One of One&Only Mandarina Private Homes has surpassed the halfway sold milestone, with all villas in the initial release of the Founders’ Collection now sold. Sales in the Legacy Collection are now underway, providing the last opportunity to enjoy preferred, introductory pricing. From their leafy, ocean-view hillside perch, the villas feature four, five and eight-bedroom floor plans, innovative, contemporary architecture, private infinity-edged pools and thoughtful, holistic interior design.
“One&Only is making history at Mandarina with the debut of one of its first collections of private villas to own,” says Andy Ardila, Managing Director of The Agency Development Group, which represents sales at One&Only Mandarina Private Homes. “Residents will enjoy all of the amenities of the One&Only Mandarina resort and the master-planned Mandarina community, as well as private residential services, including the option to enter the Villa Rental Program, in which rentals of their villa will be reserved and managed by One&Only Resorts.”
The upside investment potential of ownership at One&Only Mandarina Private Homes recently caught the attention of Forbes, which wrote about the uniqueness of the offering, its location and its appeal to the high-net-worth buyer. Travel+Leisure noted how residents have the chance to own a corner of paradise all to themselves while enjoying the ultra-luxury amenities of a One&Only resort.
Residents at One&Only Mandarina Private Homes enjoy privileged access to the open-air One&Only Spa, the private One&Only Majahua Beach Club, an array of fine dining and casual restaurants, and the 85,000-square foot Kids’ Club with treehouses, a butterfly sanctuary, water activities, nature trail, cinema and nursery.
Beyond the One&Only offerings, residents also enjoy the incredible amenities of the Mandarina community, including the world-class Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club, which was recently named the sister club of the Aspen Valley Polo Club. Members enjoy exclusive benefits at both clubs, including complimentary access to all facilities, member pricing on activities and members-only access to all tournaments and events. Mandarina sponsored last week’s Mount Sopris Cup at Aspen Valley Polo Club, during which the Mandarina team made its tournament debut and advanced to the final championship match, with The Agency there to cheer the players on.
Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club will host international competition, featuring two tournament-sized polo fields, a polo lounge, dressage and jumping arenas, horseback riding lessons and much more. Other Mandarina amenities include The Farm, with farm-to-table dining and a kids’ farm, a second beach club and The Outpost, featuring the Jungle Course, with a zipline, rappel course and obstacle trail, sports fields, miles of hiking and biking trails, a plush movie theatre and an open-air arcade.
Mandarina is located along the pristine Riviera Nayarit in one of Mexico’s last remaining beachfront jungles. The architectural design of the resort, residences and amenity offerings was envisioned to preserve the landscape and its rich geological and cultural heritage. Surrounding the property are thousands of federally protected acres in the Sierra del Vallejo Mountains, ensuring views and privacy will remain unobstructed. Mandarina is less than one hour north of Puerto Vallarta, a drive that will be shortened to 30 minutes upon the completion of a new highway now underway. The international airport welcomes direct flights from a host of U.S., Mexican and Canadian cities.
