A resort amidst the rainforest in Mexico

Where The Ocean Meets The Jungle

Nestled amidst the lush green jungle with uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean, the One&Only Mandarina offers a unique sanctuary to disconnect from the world and revitalize the spirit. Check into one of the secluded cliff-top villas or treehouses woven seamlessly into the vibrant coastal rainforest and breath in the serenity of the surroundings. Start your day with an adventure to the 500-year-old leaves of the ancient tree La Abuela, lounge at your private beachside cabana, partake in a traditional temazcal ceremony at the spa and spoil your taste buds over dinner at the award-wining Carao restaurant. The day is yours for the taking at the One&Only Mandarina.
