Four Seasons Tamarindo Opens on Mexico's Pacific Coast

Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo, México is now welcoming guests to a pristine coastal reserve that for centuries has been completely off the grid – until now.

"In Tamarindo, Four Seasons guests will feel connected to the jungle, the ocean, and to one another. The Resort immerses guests in the wonders of the natural world," says Christian Clerc, President, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.

"We are deeply grateful to our owner-partners Paralelo 19, whose family has cared for this land for generations, and are now trusting Four Seasons and our people to share in their commitment to preserving this beautiful destination and celebrating its remarkable culture."

Just 2 per cent of the surrounding 3,000 acre (1,220 hectare) private nature Reserve is being developed, offering opportunities for visitors to explore through guided excursions on land and sea.

The Resort includes 157 cliffside and beachfront accommodations – many with private pools – along with authentic dining options, a golf course, spa and wellness experiences, three pools and three nearly-deserted beaches for watersports and days in the sun.

"Our vision was to build a modern Mexican resort and make it a testimonial of our country's rich heritage," says Pedro Verea Hernandez, CEO of Paralelo 19, the owners of Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo, México.

Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo has formed philanthropic alliances with Ensamble Artesano and Taller Maya to protect pre-Hispanic culture, support Mexican artisans and offer financial recognition to continue valuing their work. Both organizations' craftsmanship is reflective of Mexico's incredible abundance of beautiful, handcrafted fabrics and art.  Guests are surrounded by puro talento Mexicano at every turn, from building architecture and design of indoor and outdoor spaces, to myriad details ranging from artworks to tableware and team uniforms.  The Resort's boutique features many handcrafted items that will allow guests to take tangible reminders of their time in Tamarindo home.

"As we join our partners in guardianship of this incredible environment, we welcome our guests to participate in its next chapter through discovery of its breath-taking beauty and fascinating cultural influences from the surrounding area and across the country," says General Manager Félix Murillo. "In Tamarindo guests can expect to fall in love with Mexico all over again as they become fully engaged in the destination, people and traditions."

The property's architecture blends both Mexican tradition and modernity.

Paradise Found

Resident biologists and researchers lead guests on guided hikes along natural footpaths created by indigenous wildlife, through jungles and along the coastline. Guests can learn about medicinal plants used since pre-Hispanic times, and get to know the 70 endemic species and hundreds more birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles that call Tamarindo home. At the Discovery Centre, they can learn more about the region's biodiversity and the "rewilding" efforts that are enabling the Earth's natural rhythms to flourish.

Guests can taste Tamarindo beyond the menus of the Resort's restaurants while learning about indigenous plant species at the 35-acre (14-hectare) Rancho Ortega, where the kitchen and farm teams are growing the ingredients that will appear on plates later that day.  They can also meet La Manzanilla fishers, dive in for a macro-photography scuba tour, or paddle out to discover the Reserve's secret spots along the coast.  Free divers – or those who want to try – will find that the waters off Tamarindo are ideal for underwater odysseys.

Dining at Four Seasons – Coyul features modern Mexican cuisine by famed Mexican Chef Elena Reygadas and cocktails throughout the day, while Nacho is a barefoot taqueria near one of the Resort's pools, for snacks and midday meals.  Opportunities for private dining include a romantic beach dinner for two, a cliffside lunch with extended family, or a party under the stars with friends old and new – and in-villa dining is available around the clock.  In 2023, Four Seasons will also debut Sal, an oceanside seafood restaurant and sunset cocktail bar.

El Tamarindo Golf Course – Long a favourite of serious golfers, the David Fleming-designed El Tamarindo 18-hole links golf course is now a Four Seasons resort experience.  With winding fairways through tropical jungle and along the rocky coastline, it's recommended that golfers pack a camera in their bag to capture every moment. The number of golfers on course at any given time strictly limited.

Facilities and services include a practice range and private instruction.  For those who don't want to travel with their gear, the Resort can arrange shipping, or provide top-quality clubs and shoes for rent.

Additional Resort Experiences - At the Casa Terrazas pop up spa, couples and individuals enjoy pampering massages indoors or outdoors. Around the Resort pools, guests can relax in the sunshine or in the seclusion of a private cabana.  In late 2022, Four Seasons will unveil Caramelo, a dedicated, fully supervised program for younger guests, and in 2023 will add the Escondite teen centre.

Events -  Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo offers both a unique setting, and a team of wedding specialists ready to ensure perfect destination weddings.  Meeting planners will also find intriguing options for corporate retreats.
