Stunning Mexican hotel projects you should know about
Situated on the Riviera Nayarit, the Susurros del Corazon resort will feature 62 ocean-view hotel guesthouses and 30 ultra-luxury oceanfront residences designed in harmony with nature. Three scallop-shaped pools will terrace down to the beach, where clear blue waters invite surfing, snorkelling and fishing against a backdrop of the volcanic Marietas Islands, a protected wildlife refuge. Its opening date has been set for early 2022.
At around the same time – early 2022 – Rosewood Resort & Spa Mandarina will open in Riviera Nayarit. Set just 30 minutes from Puerto Vallarta International Airport, the scheme will offer 130 guestrooms, suites and villas with panoramic vistas. There’ll also be a tempting array of F&B venues, three pools, a fitness centre, a spa and elegant event spaces.
Last but not least, Mexico will celebrate the launch of The St Regis Los Cabos towards the end of 2022. Part of Quivira, an 1,850-acre master-planned luxury residential community, its 120 guestrooms will boast sweeping ocean views. Travellers will be able to choose between a specialty restaurant, a beachfront grill with all-day dining and an al fresco poolside restaurant, while other standout facilities will include a fitness and wellness centre, swimming pools, a saltwater lagoon, luxury cabanas, a destination spa, and stylish meeting and event spaces.
