Three Luxury Hotel Openings to Watch in Mexico for 2020 and 2021

One and Only Mandarina
One&Only Mandarina, Mexico

Last year was a busy one for luxury hotels in Mexico, with new properties from brands ranging from Nobu to Montage. For 2020 and 2021, here are three openings from luxury brands travel advisors should be keeping an eye on. 

One&Only Mandarina, Mexico – Opening June 2020

Virtuoso’s pick for one of the hottest hotel openings of this year, this new beachfront resort will consist of 104 standalone villas and treehouses in a jungle setting. Each accommodation will have its own private pool; plus, the property will incorporate a beach club, wellness programming and a variety of ways to explore the surrounding destination. Dining venues will run the gamut from seasonal garden-to-plate dining at The Plateau or The Point, which will serve up creative Mexican dishes in a dramatic clifftop location. 

Ritz-Carlton Mexico City – Opening Summer 2020

Set in the heart of Mexico City’s financial center, The Ritz-Carlton, Mexico City will occupy floors 36 to 47 of a 58-story tower, offering sweeping views of Chapultepec Park from all 153 of the hotel’s accommodations and private residences. Also planned are Ritz Carlton’s signature Club Lounge, a Mediterranean-inspired bar and restaurant and a spa, pool and fitness center.
