Mandarina, a new slice of heaven in Riviera Nayarit
For years Riviera Nayarit lived in the shadow of nearby, booming Puerto Vallarta. Sharing one airport, Riviera Nayarit was considered an add-on destination, or a day trip from the more developed, cruise-ready, coastal city.
Designated a Virtuoso Preferred Destination, it has luxury spas, PGA golf courses, whale watching, turtle releases, zip-lining, surfing, international cuisine, and local art, and accommodations ranging from top-of-the-line luxury resorts to eco-focused boutique hotels and B&Bs. And there is much more on the way, as Riviera Nayrait expands rapidly in preparation for the next 10 years.
Today, Riviera Nayarit welcomes Mandarina, the ultra-luxury resort and residences in the Mexican jungle currently under construction. It offers upside investment potential to high net worth buyers. Mandarina is located in Riviera Nayarit, along a nearly 200-mile coastline, less than an hour drive north of Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport (Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz).
The villas of One&Only Mandarina Private Homes, designed by the internationally noted Rick Joy Architects, are selling quickly. Prices range from $4.5 million to $12 million. Since launching sales early this year, a range of North American buyers have purchased seven villas in Phase One.
There are 55 One&Only branded villas, all with ocean views. The striking contemporary architecture fits with the surrounding landscape. Homes range in size from approximately 8,000 to 18,000 square feet of interior/exterior living. The indoor/outdoor lifestyle is showcased throughout, taking advantage of the mild climate. Infinity-edged pools overlook the jungle, coastline, and ocean, all homes are positioned for privacy and of course the views.
