Seeking a tropical paradise? Look no further than this exceptional One&Only resort, set on one of Mexico’s most spectacular coastlines.

Offering a unique luxury experience, One&Only Mandarina is set in the heart of Mexico's stunning Riviera Nayarit, surrounded by incredible natural beauty.

A stay here combines all the hallmarks of a classic One&Only stay - superlative facilities, exceptional service, amazing experiences - with a real sense of local charm and tradition. The all-villa resort really is part of the local community, and your holiday will feel like a true adventure, with no luxury spared. 

Clifftop villas and treehouses mean your holiday snaps will be the best on your feed. It's impossible not to relax and unwind here, surrounded by so much unspoilt beauty. The landscape is rich in nature, and you'll be confronted with glorious views wherever you look. Perhaps you'll spend days whale watching, ziplining through the canopy, trekking through pineapple fields or spotting some of the many species of flora and fauna surrounding the resort.

Adventures in nature are plentiful here, but there's lots more to do too. There's adventures on the water - what could be more special than chartering a local Panga boat for a trip to nearby surf spots? Make sure to spend some time wandering the Jetty area here, complete with a beautiful fire pit which is the perfect destination for an evening stroll. If you're a foodie, you'll be delighted by One&Only Mandarina's culinary offerings, which range from casual beachside fare to fine garden-to-plate dining.
