Enter via a bridge built with late 19th-century wood planks sourced from the Mexico City-Guadalajara railroad. As you wander from room to room, the coastal narrative threads through – the work of interior designer Karen Colligan, who incorporated patinaed artifacts and pots, baskets from Oaxaca and Michoacan, and Huichol looms. Sunlight fills the rooms, while looking out – the 90-foot infinity pool-as-vantage-point is a particular joy – are views of the Pacific Ocean and Marietas Islands.
This luxurious holiday home in Mexico offers all the premium amenities you could expect from a five-star hotel: an onsite spa, fitness room, Jacuzzi and access to two Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses and four beach clubs. It is fully staffed with a private chef, concierge, waiters and maids, and a private driver.
If you have a life milestone ahead, this is the place to book, with plenty of space for loved ones to be together – and have time alone.
