Belmond has entered into a management agreement with Cora Pacific Development for Milaroca, A Belmond Hotel, Riviera Nayarit on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. The property is expected to open in 2025.
Designed by a team of interior maestros, with curation by creative director Getty, Milaroca is a 105-acre estate with a protected, two-kilometer pristine beach in Riviera Nayarit, a 40- minute drive from Puerto Vallarta International Airport.
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 center, 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.
“We have the incredible opportunity to craft a legend of the future with the best partners we could have asked for,” said Roeland Vos, president and CEO of Belmond. “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.”
Barbara Machen and Rosetta Getty, the entrepreneur duo behind Cora Pacific Development, said of the announcement, “Our families have been traveling together to this beautiful area of Mexico for many years. As entrepreneurs and creatives ourselves we understand the importance of the destination that inspire, and we want to share our magical experience; a place for connection, to be returned to year after year, enjoyed by family, friends and peers from around the world, a true home away from home. Milaroca will be like no other resort, and Belmond is the only hospitality brand that truly creates unique luxury experiences in this way. We could not have asked for a better partner.”
Milaroca will join two other Belmond 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.
