A luxury tented resort will be added to Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, the luxury hospitality company’s property on Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit.
Expected to open in late 2022, Naviva®, A Four Seasons Resort, Punta Mita, Mexico will offer 15 luxury tents nestled in a secluded forest area with views of the Pacific Ocean. Inspired by the idea of naturaleza viva, or “live naturally,” the resort will be deeply integrated into its natural surroundings.
“The Naviva Resort will be an exceptional retreat for those seeking highly individualized service, curated wellness experiences and artful culinary offerings that reflect the culture and character of Mexico,” said Bart Carnahan, president, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “This is an ambitious and innovative new project for our brand, with every detail focused on the wellbeing of the guests, the sustainability of the design and the celebration of the destination.”
Luxury Frontiers, international experts in the design of innovative and experiential resorts, has been selected to help bring the Naviva Resort to life and create a sustainable, low-impact sanctuary.
The tented resort will celebrate its natural surroundings through an organic aesthetic and design. Sustainable elements will include solar panels, efficient water systems and natural drainage, electric vehicles, upcycled artwork and locally sourced products, materials, produce and ingredients.
Perched on a hillside, the butterfly-inspired guest tents will each have a private pool and expansive deck. Many will also have outdoor gardens.
Other amenities and facilities at the resort include a large pool “inspired by the enveloping jungle,” access to a secluded beach, spa pods that offer customizable treatments featuring products made from local ingredients, a cliffside yoga pavilion and an outdoor gym. Guests will also have access to an onsite temazcal—a Mexican sweat lodge experience.
The onsite restaurant, Copal, will be a farm-to-table, open-air Mexican grill house serving homegrown produce and fresh sea catches on a rotating seasonal menu.
Personal guides will assist guests before and during their stays, creating custom itineraries and personalizing experiences.
