Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed by RLH Properties, a company created by BK Partners, to manage Rosewood Mandarina which will open in 2019 as Rosewood’s fifth property in Mexico. Located on the west coast of Mexico just 30 minutes’ drive from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, the resort will be situated in the breathtaking region of Riviera Nayarit. Rich with a culture that is as colorful as the exotic flora, the Nayarit region is renowned for its diverse landscape with lagoons, rivers, volcanoes, abundant vegetation, and almost 200 miles of beach along the Pacific Ocean.

Rosewood Mandarina will offer 130 guestrooms, suites and villas with panoramic views across the mountains, beach and ocean. Guests will be able to choose from three bars and restaurants including a speciality restaurant and sunset bar as well as more informal options, such as a pool grill and beach bar. The resort will offer three pools, fitness center and a spa with 10 treatment rooms in addition to event space which will include a 300square-foot ballroom. The beachfront property will draw inspiration from the local, pre-historic Huichole and Cora cultures, combining modern luxury and comfort with the riches of its extraordinary setting.

With a focus on the element of “water,” the setting will provide visitors with exclusive access to three diverse environments: the beach, the lowlands and the highlands, each offering unique activities. From fishing in the winding lagoons or off the coast of the ocean, 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.
