Amanvari will be the newest addition to Aman’s portfolio and will sit within the Costa Palmas beachfront development on Mexico’s west coast.
The resort is being designed by long-term Aman collaborator Heah & Co and guestrooms will be across 20 pavilions, with floor-to-ceiling windows and wrap-around sundecks.
A main pavilion at the resort will also contain three restaurants, a 30-metre infinity pool and four hot tubs, with the Aman Spa pavilion nearby. All the pavilions will be built on stilts in order to protect the local ecosystem.
Activities available will include diving with migrating whales, horse riding and visiting fresh water ponds with the hotel’s resident biologist.
The Costa Palmas development is a 45-minute drive from Los Cabos International Airport, but opens up a new area away from developments on the Los Cabos area.
The development also contains an 18-hole golf course by Robert Trent Jones II and a yacht club. There will also be a Four Seasons property within the development.
Chairman and chief executive of Aman, Vladislav Doronin said: “The raw landscape on the East Cape of the Baja Peninsula is a fitting location for our first destination in Mexico and illustrates our continued commitment to curating resorts of architectural distinction.”
Aman now has 33 hotels around the world and is currently also working on a New York property in Manhattan, slated to open in 2020.
The very first Aman resort, Amanpuri, opened in Phuket, Thailand in 1988, and the company celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
