Kerzner to operate two new resorts in Mexico under the One & Only brand
Kerzner International has entered into an agreement with BK Partners, a private equity fund focused on tourism and land development, to develop and operate two new One&Only resorts on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. These new resorts will complement the experience offered at the One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico.
One&Only Mandarina, located in Riveria Nayarit, approximately 50 kilometres north of Puerto Vallarta’s airport, will offer approximately 145 villas as well as private residential estates, farm-to-table dining and original retail options.
The beachfront resort will maximize the dramatic rain forest location, with each secluded villa individually placed to celebrate where the sky meets the sea and the lush flora and fauna.
A wide variety of accommodation will include Ocean Cliff Villas, Tree House Villas and Mountain Villas, all placing an emphasis on privacy and beautiful vistas.Adults will be able to enjoy the pool, soaring high above the Pacific, with private cabanas and a sophisticated poolside café and lounge. A beach club, just steps from the water’s edge, will provide fun and energy, as well as relaxation. A family pool nearby will offer guests of all ages enjoyment of both sun and surf.
The resort will also offer an One&Only Spa and Fitness Centre, honouring the inspired surrounds with treatments using traditional Mexican elements, as well as the latest state-of-the-art technology.
One&Only Santa Maria de Xala will be part of a new 1200-hectare development located approximately 100 kilometres south of Puerto Vallarta’s international airport.
The authentic hacienda resort will command 8 kilometres of beach front and feature approximately 75 villas and suites with private pools. The development will also include an One&Only residential component. True to the brand’s heritage, One&Only Santa Maria de Xala will offer a variety of world-class cuisines, showcasing regional specialties in restaurants overseen by internationally-acclaimed chefs.
The resort will also house a spa, honouring the region’s heritage by utilising ancient Mexican traditions and holistic practices fused with modern spa therapies, as well as a fitness centre offering the latest technology and innovation.
