Ritz-Carlton Reserve Sets Sights on Riviera Nayarit, Mexico

Ritz-Carlton Reserve Riviera Nayarit
The future site of the hotel

Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit is about to become home to another big new luxury travel brand: Ritz-Carlton Reserve. Real estate firm Thor Equities Group just announced plans for its Thor Urbana division to develop The Ritz-Carlton Reserve Riviera Nayarit, with a projected opening date in 2022.

Plans for the hotel call for 110 rooms, suites and private villas with ocean views, as well as three restaurants, a bar, event rooms, two pools, a spa and shops. The property will be set in El Santuario (The Sanctuary), within the master development of Costa Canuva near Puerto Vallarta. El Santuario has a private beach, as well as cliffs and a natural environment that reportedly provide spectacular views.

The news marks the latest big new development in luxury hotels. Preferred Hotels & Resorts recently accepted one Velas Resorts property from the area into its ranks as part of the organization’s Lifestyle Collection: the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit. In boutique hotel news, the Hotel Amapa – part of Design Hotels – is a 55-room, adults-only property that that is set to open in the Colonia Amapas neighborhood of Puerto Vallarta sometime this winter.

Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit

This exclusive, invite-only event focused on the luxury travel market brings together world-class travel agency owners and managers with the most opulent, luxury suppliers to cultivate collaboration, share insights, and help carve a path into the future of luxury travel.

The destination as a whole is also drawing buzz for Puerto Vallarta’s Historic Center, which, according to our sister publication, Travel Agent, this past summer received a protected designation as a cultural heritage site from the Jalisco state government’s Department of Culture.

Thor Equities Group is a real estate development company that also owns the Thompson Playa del Carmen and Montage Los Cabos in Mexico. It is also working on opening the Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City in 2019 and, elsewhere in Latin America, the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Caye Chapel, Belize, in 2021.
