Winner of Condé Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Award for 2018, Las Alamandas is the ultimate Mexican beach hideaway set on a spectacular 1500-acre nature reserve. This is the place you come to escape and unwind for a while, discovering pristine white sand beaches, fresh-water lagoons, coves and rocky islands. The resort is the perfect balance between privacy and togetherness and has become one of Mexico's most famous and exclusive luxury getaways. Try a visit from August to November and be treated to the unbeatable sights of the hatched turtle release into the sea, part of the resort's preservation efforts.
With each and every villa benefitting from a secluded position, owner Isabel Goldsmith (daughter of the late Sir James Goldsmith) makes sure that every luxury is provided. Exclusivity is the word here, with the warm and caring staff treating you like royalty.
Located mid-way between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo on Mexico's Pacific coast, Las Alamandas is set in a serene eco-destination. Explore the entire estate by mountain bike or horse, admire the wildlife or how about a spot of family fishing along the San Nicolas river? There's a plethora of activities to tick off your list, but there's also plenty of opportunity to laze around in the hazy heat.
Opulently decorated in lavish Mexican fabrics and vivid hues of pink, orange and blue and sporting Mexican folk art, the 16 casitas at Las Alamandas offer casual relaxation, with spacious terraces and panoramic views along the Costalegre. Enjoy your own private jacuzzi and lap up the glorious sunshine.
Prepare your tastebuds with some seriously good gourmet Mexican cuisine, using only the freshest, seasonal ingredients to create dishes that delightfully surprise guests each and every time. Enjoy only the very best picturesque settings, from the al fresco Oasis Restaurant, to the Oceanside La Palapa Beach Club, or how about a romantic beach dinner under the stars?
The Costalegre region of Jalisco is known as tequila country, so it's to no surprise that owner Isabel has created a tropical tequila and Margarita bar using fresh herbs and fruits. Retreat to the idyllic Estrella Azul Rooftop Bar, where good music, cocktails and colourful sunsets serenade you into the early hours.
With all rooms complemented by panoramic ocean or garden views, the Pacific ocean is always in calming sight, enhanced by the delectable colour palette and design of the resort itself. Whether it's the majestic setting of the Oasis Restaurant with its enchanting lighting against the azure sea, or enjoying yoga or a massage as you breathe in the pure freshness of the ocean, Las Alamandas is the obvious choice.
