Kerzner International Holdings has collaborated with BK Partners to develop and operate two new One&Only resorts on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

Situated around 50km north of Puerto Vallarta’s airport, One&Only Mandarina is being developed to include 145 luxurious villas and private residential estates, in addition to farm-to-table dining and original retail options.

The new resort will feature ocean cliff villas, tree house villas and mountain villas, as well as private cabanas, poolside cafe and lounge.

"The locations showcase the best Mexico has to offer and I am very confident that One&Only will continue to define ultra-luxury in the region."

The property will also feature One&Only spa, fitness centre and conference centre for corporate meetings and retreats.

Kerzner International CEO Alan Leibman said: "I am thrilled we are able to partner with BK Partners to further develop Mexico as a world-class destination, building on the success of One&Only Palmilla.

"The locations truly showcase the best Mexico has to offer, each with a distinctive experience, and I am very confident that One&Only will continue to define ultra-luxury in the region."

One&Only Santa Maria de Xala will be a 1,200ha development, located around 100km south of Puerto Vallarta’s international airport. The hacienda resort will include about 8km of beachfront, and offer around 75 luxury villas and suites with private pools.

Including a One&Only residential component, the resort will feature One&Only spa, fitness centre, and event and meeting space.

BK Partners partner Juan Bremer said: "We are proud and excited to work together with Kerzner International towards the development of these two world-class One&Only resorts that will showcase a unique and different experience not seen before in this part of the world."
