San Franciscans looking for an exotic second home to escape the fog should look no further than the upcoming resort Mandarina. Located on the Pacific coast of Mexico in the Riviera Nayarit, the hottest new destination south of the border, Mandarina will be home to two luxury hotels and a polo and equestrian club. The One&Only and Rosewood are opening hotels—and, more importantly, branded residences.

One&Only Private Homes are the brand’s first collection of residences. Designed by architect Rick Joy (who is known for his work on Utah’s Amangiri), none of the 55 villas are precisely alike. Each home is architecturally unique and made to fit into the surrounding jungle while capturing the most favorable ocean views.

Villas range in size from 7,500 to 13,500 square-feet with four-, five-, and eight-bedroom floor plans. All of the 55 residences feature as much indoor into outdoor living space as possible. The $4-to-$12 million houses also boast infinity pools, garden areas, and large terraces.

The One&Only Private Homes will open in conjunction with the 108-room One&Only Mandarina next fall. Homeowners will have access to the hotel’s amenities including the full-service concierge, spa, an oceanfront swimming area and harbor, multiple beach clubs and restaurants, various lookout points and swimming pools, a system of trails, and an estuary. Plus use of the Mandarina Polo and Equestrian Club, a world-class destination that will host international sporting events on its two tournament size polo fields.

To get to Mandarina, it’s a short three-and-a-half hour flight from SFO to Puerto Vallarta. From there, it’s less than an hour to the resort, which is 15-minutes north of Sayulita. It’s a relatively seamless trip. Leave in the morning, and you’ll be poolside with a margarita in hand by lunch.
