Punta de MIta, Riviera Nayarit, Mexico
Nahui, a 2,100-acre development situated west of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, in between Real del Mar/Arena Blanca and the beach of Destiladeras heading west towards Punta de Mita. The property has over 4.5 km of oceanfront and more than 243 meters of elevation change. The highway to Punta Mita, at least the stretch from La Cruz to the hotel Paladium will ultimately be relocated behind this property, freeing up valuable coastal property. The new access point will be on the easterly side of the new development of Alamar in La Cruz.
Phase I of Nahui will include sites for timeshare development called Tau Nahui resort, an anchor hotel, and for a collection of small boutique hotels and residential product options built onto the hillside behind overlooking the bay. Both Tau Nahui and the boutique hotel components will provide an ongoing stream of leads for real estate available on the hillside behind. The idea and hope of the developer is that Nahui will evolve into a west-coast version of Playa del Carmen, (a very successful and popular resort town near Cancun), however with more thoughtful, planned development.
A pedestrian pueblo (the Village) at the propertyâ€™s western edge facing the beach will provide a publicly accessible retail dining and entertainment center and plaza, and will be the village hub not just for Nahui but for the region.
Phase II, or Club Nahui, will be situated on the eastern most section (next to Arena Blanca/Real del Mar) of Nahui that will include a gated ocean- and golf-oriented property overlooking the Pacific, anchored by a 100-room hotel, planned to be operated by the 6-star Capella Hotels and Resorts company with 120 branded residences. The product will include seaside estates, 3- and 4-bedroom hillside villas, stacked flats with penthouses and custom residential estates, all sharing views to the ocean. 400 to 450 residential units will eventually encompass the complete project.
The hotel and the residential units will be built around a Rees Jones-designed signature golf course, and will have a beach club, tennis center, golf clubhouse, an Auriga spa. The 18-hole golf club and clubhouse will be open to public play with preferential times reserved for residents and guests.
Nahui North is the third phase of the development, positioned above the existing highway and up into the hills behind. The site is being planned for large ranch-sized lots and is envisioned as an eco-community, designed to ensure preservation at this partially segregated corner of Nahui.
