Belmond has struck a management deal with Cora Pacific Development to operate a third branded property in Mexico. Anticipated to open in 2025, Milaroca, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Nayarit will be set on a 43-hectare lush estate with a protected, two-kilometre pristine beach in Riviera Nayarit, a 40-minute drive from Puerto Vallarta International Airport. The project will also feature 27 private villas.
Upon completion, the estate will feature a hotel with 57 spacious guest pavilions, ranging from junior suites, one-bedroom suites, jungle suites and 12 three-bedroom villas, many with private plunge pools; six distinct dining venues with ingredients supplied by its own organic farm; a wellness centre, four outdoor swimming pools and a curated retail offering that brings together exclusive brands with the high craftsmanship artisanal products. The estate will also include 27 private villas.
Each of the guest pavilions will be a welcoming discovery with a unique collection of contemporary custom-made furniture and crafted objects from local artisans and Mexico’s most exciting contemporary artists. Every detail will be carefully considered, with interiors maintaining an intuitive symbiosis with the outdoor spaces and surrounding jungle.
The agreement signing further strengthens Belmond’s commitment to Mexico, with its reach now extending to the country’s western region. Milaroca will join Belmond’s existing properties in Mexico – Casa de Sierra Nevada, a former convent built in 16th century located in the country’s heartland of San Miguel de Allende, and the reimagined Maroma in Riviera Maya on the Yucatan Peninsula which will reopen its doors this August following a complete renovation.
Roeland Vos, President & CEO of Belmond said: “With utmost respect to Riviera Nayarit’s multicultural history, abundant nature and the region’s carefree spirit, Milaroca will encapsulate the essence of contemporary lifestyle, creating a destination for today’s thriving creative community – a new legendary scene where new traditions are made, and long-lived rituals are celebrated.”
Consciously Crafted Houses
Immersed in lush mountainous jungle and pearly-white beach along Riviera Nayarit, Milaroca will be a new haven for creative minds. Led by Waldo’s Designs and Clements Design, the property’s aesthetic will draw inspiration from the region’s breathtaking beauty, storied native culture, and the bohemian spirit of nearby San Pancho and Sayulita villages.
