With the holidays behind us, it’s time to start thinking about vacation plans for the year ahead. Just in time for an unforgettable 2020 summer getaway, the new One&Only Mandarina will open its doors on June 1, 2020, along the picturesque Pacific Coast of Mexico. Located less than an hour north of Puerto Vallarta in Riviera Nayarit, One&Only Mandarina is situated along a one-mile stretch of pristine, sandy beach, surrounded by leafy jungles and soaring mountain peaks within the gated, master-planned Mandarina community.
One&Only Mandarina offers a combination of 104 free-standing villas that float above the treetops or perch along the ocean-view hillsides, each with their own plunge pool. The hotel was designed to respect and blend with the natural environment, which spans hundreds of oceanside acres.
Situated beside the new hotel is One&Only Mandarina Private Homes, among the first One&Only homes to own in the world. The collection of 54 private villas available for full ownership offers residents all of the amenities and services of the hotel.
Resort offerings include world-class restaurants, such as The Point, an adults-only poolside dining destination that will be run by an acclaimed chef to be formally announced in the coming months. The Plateau is a family-friendly lounging and dining experience tucked into the hillside above the ocean.
The One&Only Majahua Beach Club is a casual oceanfront destination with infinity-edged pools, dining and spa treatment cabanas. The One&Only Spa features a collection of open-air treatment rooms situated beneath a canopy of trees, while the 85,000-square-foot KidsOnly club features treehouses, a butterfly sanctuary and nature trail.
“Mandarina allows us to bring One&Only’s signature experiences to this unrivaled destination in Mexico,” says Philippe Zuber, Chief Operating Officer, Kerzner International. “This brand-defining resort will be the latest addition to One&Only’s global portfolio and will showcase our commitment to the destination and creating truly memorable moments.”
In addition to the amenities of One&Only Mandarina, guests and residents enjoy the amenities of the Mandarina community, which includes the Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club, The Outpost jungle adventure course and sports courts, and miles of hiking, biking and horseback riding trails.
One&Only Mandarina began taking reservations for its summer opening late last year when it was named among The 40 Most Anticipated Luxury Hotel Openings for 2020 by Forbes. One&Only Mandarina Private Homes have already reached the $100 million dollar sales milestone, with only a limited collection of homes still available in Phase One. Villas offer four, five and eight-bedroom floor plans, private pools and spectacular ocean, jungle and mountain views.
Among remaining Phase One home is the newly unveiled Villa 17, which encompasses two homesites, 10,839 interior square feet, and eight-bedroom suites. Ideal for both intimate and large-scale entertaining, the home captures the most impressive sunset views with the longest ocean-facing frontage and a 25-meter pool, the largest private pool in the community.
