resort living in the u.s. and mexico comes down to one thing: more

Jun 19, 2019 Mansion Global

One&Only Mandarina and One&Only Mandarina Private Homes, opening in early 2020, will share a space with Rosewood Residences and Rosewood Mandarina (opening in 2022) on a mile-long stretch of coastline that features beach, mountains, jungle and an estuary.

 

And, yes, there will be a farm, a distinct destination within Mandarina. It will have orchards, gardens and greenhouses where food will be grown for its farm-to-table restaurant, as well as cooking class kitchens, animals to delight children and stargazing towers.

 

But perhaps the most distinguishing facility will be the Mandarina Polo & Equestrian Club, which will provide entertainment, social events and sport for those who ride.

 

“You’ll have polo brunches on Sundays. You’ll have either jumping or dressage competitions that you can go to and have lunch and be an observer,” said Ricardo Santa Cruz, president and CEO of RSC Development and the founding partner of Mandarina. “Or you can say, you know what, we as a family just want to go on tame horses for a horseback ride throughout the estuary and along the beach.”

 

To date, 18 of the planned 55 One & Only private homes have sold.

 

While owners will have access to Mandarina’s many pools, a jungle zipline and obstacle course and an array of other activities such as birdwatching tours, the one amenity you won’t find with your $5-million to $10-million villa is a golf course, which isn’t all that unusual at the current crop of residential resorts.

 

“Golf courses are in decline. They’re very expensive to maintain. Fewer and fewer people are playing,” Mr. Santa Cruz said.

 

Besides, the game isn’t an equal opportunity memory maker.

 

“You go on vacation, and suddenly it’s like, ‘Hey, you’re not with the kids during the week, and now here we are on vacation and you’re going to go leave and golf for six hours,’” Mr. Santa Cruz said. “Especially millennials and the newer generation, they want to steer clear of that.”

 

Millennials, he added, think, ‘‘Give me something new, give me something different.’”
