Four Seasons has just opened its newest highly anticipated resort in Mexico, which looks spectacular.
Basics of the Four Seasons Tamarindo
The Four Seasons Tamarindo in Jalisco, Mexico, has opened 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 features 157 accommodations, many with private pools. The base rooms are 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 features four restaurants and bars, a golf course, a spa and gym, a kids club, an on-site working farm, and much more. The resort also features 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.
Below you can see a short video about the new Four Seasons Tamarindo.
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:
- 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? 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. 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].
The Four Seasons Tamarindo has opened as of November 2022, complementing Four Seasons’ existing portfolio in Mexico. This isn’t even Four Seasons’ only new opening in Mexico in late 2022, 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’s incredibly secluded, and boasts great ocean, beach, and jungle views. I suspect this will become a really popular resort.
