When you’re in Mexico and you just want the best place to stay, the answer is the Four Seasons. The Four Seasons organization continues to expand its empire in Mexico. Tamarindo is situated on a private, off-the-grid peninsula in Jalisco. Jungle meets beach, and there’s even a world-class 18-hole golf course. Here’s the first look.

The Four Season Tamarindo is tucked away on a private peninsula between the towns of La Manzanilla and Barra de Navidad in Jalisco. The best feature of this new resort is the seclusion. Mexico’s natural beauty shines within this natural reserve spanning 3,000 acres. This place aims to let guests connect with nature, via hiking trails and a Discovery Center. The property has 157 accommodations, including 63 suites and private residencies. The cliffside suites also feature private swimming pools. Each room is made for indoor-outdoor living, with views of the ocean, the cliffs, and greenery.

Dining

Chef Nicolas Piatti leads the Four Season Tamarindo’s food operation. He is the culinary director of four restaurants and bars. The focus of these restaurants is on traditional Mexican food, but they also reflect Mexico’s culture and environment. Whenever possible, Piatti and his team prepare the dishes with indigenous, seasonal ingredients.

Activities

Since the Four Seasons Tamarindo is family-friendly property, there’s lots to keep you and your brood busy. The Young Adult Center is a drop-off, but feel free to let the kids tag along to the two clay tennis courts or the boat dock. The dock is also where the fishing and scuba excursions come together. Then there’s a championship 18-hole par-72 golf course, sure to entertain even spoiled golf fans.

Would you rather relax? The partially open-air spa has a temazcal or “house of heat” — a kind of sweat lodge. The Four Seasons Tamarindo blends every spa experience with traditional Mexican practice.
