Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Rosewood Hotels & Resorts announced plans Tuesday to open the Rosewood Mandarina in Mexico's Riviera Nayarit region in 2019.
Rosewood's fifth property in Mexico, the beachfront resort will draw inspiration from the local, pre-historic Huichol and Cora cultures, combining modern luxury and comfort with the riches of its extraordinary setting.
The site, on Mexico's Pacific Coast, just 30 minutes' drive from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, is in a region that provides three diverse environments: the beach, the lowlands and the highlands, each offering unique activities for groups.
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 offer 130 guest rooms, suites and villas with panoramic views of the scenic region's mountains and oceanside. Plans call for three restaurants and bars, including a speciality restaurant and sunset bar, as well as more informal options such as a pool grill and a beach bar. The resort will offer three pools, a fitness center and a spa with 10 treatment rooms, plus event space.
"Rosewood is excited to expand our brand further into Mexico, a leading destination for luxury travelers today," said Sonia Cheng, CEO 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 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 will open in 2017.Sources: hospitalityet.org • meetings-conventions.com
