Kerzner enters Mexico


According to Breaking Travel News, 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, joining the existing 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 pool area will offer private cabanas and a poolside café and lounge, while a beach club will provide an alternative location for relaxation. 

Both internationally-influenced and locally-inspired restaurants will allow guests to explore a range of dining experiences. 

The resort will also have a One&Only spa and fitness centre. In addition, the resort will have a private conference centre for corporate meetings and retreats.

One&Only Santa Maria de Xala will be part of a new 1,200-hectare development located approximately 100 kilometres south of Puerto Vallarta’s international airport. 

The hacienda resort will command eight kilometres of beach front and offer approximately 75 luxury villas and suites with private pools. The development will also include a prestigious One&Only residential component.
