Set at the One&Only Mandarina, the sprawling villas join an increasingly crowded (and design-driven) market along the Pacific coast.

By now, hotel-branded residences are a well-established real estate trend, with both luxury and mid-priced hospitality companies having their stake in the game. The ultra-exclusive One&Only collection was the rare holdout that had yet to offer residences for sale. Finally, in what’s an exclusive reveal with AD.com, that’s about to change: the brand’s first-ever residences to come to market—named One&Only Mandarina Private Homes—are now debuting at One&Only Mandarina, located in Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit.

The Private Homes at the resort comprise 55 villas that are built into the oceanfront cliffs and mountains that Riviera Nayarit is known for. Buyers can pick between two kinds of residences. The core collection offers either four- or five-bedroom villas that span from 4,470 to 7,390 square feet. These numbers don’t figure in the outdoor space that ranges from 2,280 to 3,200 square feet. Estate villas are palatial with their eight bedrooms, interior space of almost 11,085 square feet plus an additional 5,380 square feet of outdoor space. All the homes stand out for their views of either the lush surrounding rainforest or the Pacific Ocean and have infinity pools, outdoor fire pits, and plenty of common spaces ideal for gathering with friends and family. Prices start at $4.4 million and cap off at $16.25 million.

The celebrated architect Rick Joy, founder of the Tucson-based Studio Rick Joy, designed the villas and is also behind the design of the resort, as well as some of the world’s top hotels including Amangiri in Utah. In a statement about the project, Joy says that the properties were constructed with concrete, local stone, and wood. In speaking about the resort overall, he says, “Our process was narrated not just by the hundreds-of-years-old trees and vegetation, but also the pre-Hispanic history and artifacts on site.”

Kappner Clark, the chief marketing officer for RLH Properties, One&Only Mandarina’s developer, describes the villas as capturing the best of indoor/outdoor living. “The essence of Mandarina is to be immersed in the nature and, to that end, the homes have an indoor/outdoor living room and a kitchen that opens out onto a large terrace where you get vistas of the water or mountains,” she says.

In true One&Only style, where service is unparalleled, each homeowner is paired with a One Contact, who is their personal concierge and caters to their every need, from stocking the kitchen with their favorite foods before they arrive to making restaurant and spa reservations.  Owners can also rent out their villas and get the benefit of picking their desired furniture package, curated by One&Only’s and RLH Properties’ interior design teams.

And we can’t leave out the amenities that owners can enjoy at the 620-acre resort, such as the hiking and biking trails, equestrian and polo center, spa, and multiple restaurants and beach clubs.
