A Mexican resort designed by San Antonio’s Overland Partners Architects is slated to open later this month.

Imanta Punta de Mita was built on a 250-acre private reserve that is located less than an hour from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The property overlooks a cliff and Overland designed the resort with its natural jungle setting in mind.

“There was no preconceived notion for what Imanta would look like,” says Bob Shemwell, lead architect for Overland Partners. “Instead, we looked at the site and the land to see what it would yield.”

Overland also worked to retain as much of the ecology as possible during the design phase. The owners also utilized sustainable building practices during development.

“The stone for the walls of the buildings, for example, came from the boulders we cleared. We even hollowed bathtubs out of boulders and made slab stone tables from the leftover cuttings. We were careful not to cut down any trees, and we took pains to site all the buildings to respect the topography and to make them totally private,” Shemwell says.

In addition to the hotel, Imanta Punta de Mita also has been built with 37 private lots scattered throughout the property. Opening rates start at $1,200 per night.
