Four Seasons has just started accepting reservations for its highly anticipated new resort in Mexico, which looks spectacular.

Basics of the Four Seasons Tamarindo

The Four Seasons Tamarindo in Jalisco, Mexico, is now accepting reservations for stays as of November 2022. The secluded oceanfront resort is located on a private peninsula on the Pacific coast, surrounded by more than 3,000 acres of jungle. Of the entire nature reserve, only 2% is developed.

The resort will feature 157 accommodations, many with private pools. The base rooms will be Nature Rooms, featuring 710 square feet of indoor & outdoor space. Meanwhile all the suites feature infinity pools, starting with the Cliffside One-Bedroom Suite, which features 1,593 square feet of indoor & outdoor space.

On top of that, the resort will feature four restaurants and bars, a golf course, a spa and gym, a kids club, an on-site working farm, and much more. The resort will also feature a discovery center, where you can learn about the biodiversity in the area, including more than 70 endemic species of wildlife, and hundreds of birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles.

To get to Tamarindo, you’ll want to fly into Manzanillo-Costalegre International Airport (ZLO). The airport has direct flights on Aeromexico (from Mexico City), Alaska (from Los Angeles), American (from Dallas and Phoenix), and United (from Houston). From the airport, the resort is just a 35-minute drive, with 15 of those minutes being through the private nature reserve.

The Four Seasons Tamarindo looks incredible

Mexico in general is one of my favorite countries in the world to visit — it’s so close to the United States, the food is incredible, and the people are lovely. Mexico City is an amazing urban destination, with so much culture and incredible food.

When it comes to beach destinations, personally I have a strong preference for Los Cabos over Riviera Maya, as I far prefer the climate, landscape, and quality of hotels. I rank Puerto Vallarta as being somewhere between the two.

I haven’t yet been to Tamarindo, but this resort looks beyond spectacular. It seems to offer most of the things that I already love about Mexico, but only better. The fact that this resort is so secluded and is surrounded by such amazing nature makes this all the more compelling to visit.

Admittedly this isn’t the ideal destination if you’re looking to party, go off property to a different restaurant every night, etc. But if you want to relax and enjoy nature, this place seems hard to beat.

Four Seasons Tamarindo rates & how to book

What are rates like at the new Four Seasons Tamarindo? As you’d expect, they’re not cheap, though they don’t necessarily have to be that outrageous. Four Seasons publishes all promotions online, and this property has a couple ahead of opening:

  • For stays through October 31, 2023, the hotel is offering a fourth night free with every three paid nights
  • For stays through October 31, 2023, the hotel is offering 25% off with advance purchase rates, when booking at least 14 days in advance

So, what are rates like? When the hotel opens in November, I’m seeing rates starting at $795++ per night for a one-bedroom suite with infinity pool.

Meanwhile early next year, in peak season, rates start at $1,995++ per night on some dates.

That pricing is roughly what I’d expect, and I imagine this hotel will have no problems selling rooms at these prices. Also, while it’s expensive, the hotel still has availability over festive periods, simply on account of just having opened for bookings. Interestingly the hotel is primarily selling suites at this point and not base rooms, so I imagine they might not be ready just yet.

If you’re going to book this hotel (or any Four Seasons), you absolutely should book through a travel advisor who is affiliated with Four Seasons Preferred Partner. With this program, eligible travel advisors can add value to your stay without it costing you extra. They can add perks like complimentary breakfast (including via in-room dining), a hotel credit, an upgrade subject to availability, and more.

Best of all, Four Seasons Preferred Partner can generally be combined with any rates you’ll find directly with Four Seasons, including any free night offers. The upgrades through this program are also prioritized over upgrades through other programs, so you’ll want to use Preferred Partner over a program like Virtuoso or Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts. Ford and his team are always happy to help with Preferred Partner bookings, and can be reached at [email protected]

Bottom line

The Four Seasons Tamarindo is opening in November 2022, complementing Four Seasons’ existing portfolio in Mexico. This isn’t even Four Seasons’ only new opening in Mexico late this year, as the tented Four Seasons Naviva property will be opening soon as well.

Four Seasons Tamarindo might just be the brand’s most spectacular resort in the country, as it’ll be incredibly secluded, and boast great ocean, beach, and jungle views. I suspect this will become a really popular resort.

    I was about to write a snarky comment about location but I got my fruits confused -- the One & Only MANDARINA is north of Puerto Vallarta while this new Four Seasons TAMARINDO is south so flying into Manzanillo makes sense.

    Property looks gorgeou$$$

    I have a question for all you SPG loyalists from back in the day. Years ago, there was a Luxury Collection property named El Tamarindo in this same area. At some point, it was no longer in the SPG portfolio. From the picture of the beach/bay in Lucky's post, it looks to be the exact same location as the old El Tamarindo resort. Does anyone know if this is the same location as the old Luxury Collection El Tamarindo? I have very fond memories of the old El Tamarindo.

      @CS I am utterly speechless at this post. I stayed at El Tamarindo 19 years ago, and it was utterly delightful. Felt like being in Jurassic Park - a 20 minute ride down a private road through the jungle just to get to the property. Yes, I beleive this is the same as the El Tamarindo resort (although when we stayed I don't beleive it was an SPG property) off Tenacatita bay. I have checked...

      @CS I am utterly speechless at this post. I stayed at El Tamarindo 19 years ago, and it was utterly delightful. Felt like being in Jurassic Park - a 20 minute ride down a private road through the jungle just to get to the property. Yes, I beleive this is the same as the El Tamarindo resort (although when we stayed I don't beleive it was an SPG property) off Tenacatita bay. I have checked over the years from time-to-time as it seemed to have closed soon after we stayed there and I never saw anything open back up there over the years. It had to be one of my favorite places in the world. The rooms were expensive back in 2003 when we were there (around $900/night if I remember correctly). So, so, so exlcusive. Maybe they had 15 rooms? All were standalone villas, many with pools. The one we had was likely 1,000 sqft with an outdoor kitchen, a pool, and probably a 1/4 acre grass yard with tall hedge surrounding for privacy. We could have hosted a party for 200 easily in "our room". I have missed this property so much over the years, but it looks like Four Seasons will ruin it with the massive construction shown in the photos. @Lucky, if you do have the chance, you should go. They had fireflies, armadillo, racoons and all kinds of wildlife sharing the property with the guests. It was totally cool.

      @Arl - oh my gosh, yes - you are 100% correct on everything you talk about. Without doubt, this was/is the same property and the same location. El Tamarindo was amazing and so, so unique. One of my funniest memories of the place was in the evening at the outdoor restaurant, the racoons or "mapaches" would literally sneak in when no one was looking and they were able to snatch a table cloth off a table in hopes of food dropping. They also had signs in the rooms warning of the "mapaches" and how they would come in and rummage through your stuff. Also, completely forgot about the beautiful golf course there as well. I played the course 2 times - complete with local caddies and also, grilled Caribbean lobster at the turn between holes #9 & #10. Ahhhh, I miss El Tamarindo!!

      @Arl - so glad you had fond memories of the place as well!

    Looks beautiful and $795 seems pretty reasonable. The words Kids Club (and Golf Course) make my interest go from a 10 to a 7.

    This looks absolutely amazing. Adding on the bucket list.
