Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit to Count on New Developments over the Next Five Years
Tourism investment carries on flowing into the Riviera Nayarit, a region alternatively known as the Pacific Treasure of Mexico.
Sixteen newly constructed hotels, resorts and residential projects are about to get completed on the Nayarit coast somewhere between 2020 and 2025, while two projects were finished on November.
The 268-room Marival Armony resort inaugurated in Punta Mita in last month and the 678-room Riu Vallarta resort reopened after massive renovation.
The previous one brags about 300 meters of beachfront along with five pools, a convention center, kids’ and teens’ clubs and a gymnasium, among other amenities.
Set up in 2006, the Riu currently has a new lobby, a renovated pool area and three new restaurants. Current restaurants and guest rooms at the Nuevo Vallarta resort also went through a massive makeover.
Five projects will come to an end in each of 2020 and 2021, while a further seven are expected to be completed between 2022 and 2025.
Those projects scheduled to get completed next year are Aurberge’s 59-suite Susurros Del Corazón resort in Punta Mita; a 325-room Conrad by Hilton resort in Litibú; the 145-villa One & Only residential development in Mandarina; a 92-room resort by Barceló in Nuevo Vallarta; and the 50-room Four Seasons resort in Punta Mita, which is being modernized out and out.
In 2021, a total of 1,635 new rooms will be inaugurated at the Secrets Resort & Spa in Punta Mita, the Dreams Resort & Spa in the same location, the Ritz Carlton Reserve in Costa Canuva, the Iberostar Grand in Litibú and the Vidanta World Park in Nuevo Vallarta.
A 128-room Rosewood resort will succeed Mandarina in 2022, as a 400-room Westin hotel and a 240-room Ritz Carlton resort will be inaugurated at Destiladeras beach in 2023. Also, a 250-room Fairmont hotel will be opened in Costa Canuva in 2023 and 600 rooms will be added to the Vidanta World Park.
