The global luxury brand Auberge Resorts Collection has begun construction on its latest property, Susurros del Corazón (Whispers of the Heart), located in the exclusive area of Punta de Mita in the Riviera Nayarit.
This is a luxury boutique development with only 30 beachfront residences with a view of Banderas Bay and a tentative opening date for 2020.
The groundbreaking ceremony took place last Friday on the beach at El Banco—the site of the residential complex—and was attended by investors, development executives, municipal and state authorities, and members of the region’s business community, among them, the Secretary of Tourism for the State of Nayarit, Ana Cecilia Llanos, and the Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association, Marc Murphy.
“We’re very pleased with the trust the investors and developers have placed in us by creating these new tourism projects in the Riviera Nayarit,” said Marc Murphy. “Susurros del Corazón by Auberge Resorts is the type of investment the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association and the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau truly enjoy welcoming.”
“These are high-end, low-density hotels with specialized clientele: the type of tourist who likes to leave the hotel, go out to dinner, go shopping, and who generates important economic revenue. There’s no doubt this type of investment is a stimulus,” he added.
Meanwhile, Mark Cooley, partner, SV Capital Partners, developers of the resort and residences, stated it was very important for the company to preserve the natural beauty of the land and it was being conscious during the development to create a community that was in harmony with its surroundings.
“Punta de Mita is such a special place,” said Cooley. “We wanted to bring something totally unique to this area and the new Auberge resort hotel suites and stunning oceanfront villas deliver on our vison.”
The entire ethos of this property—he added—is to combine a rustic simplicity that feels very authentic with the world-class amenities expected from a quality Auberge resort.
By the same token, Craig Reid, executive director of Auberge Resorts Collection, pointed out that Susurros del Corazón will be an entirely new experience in Punta de Mita, one that embraces a laid-back beach spirit and perfectly balances luxury and approachability.
“We could not be happier to partner with SV Capital in another exceptional resort and residential project. The groundbreaking is an exciting milestone moment in the journey of bringing this vision to life,” he said.
Upon opening in late 2020, Susurros del Corazón will comprise 59 hotel guest suites, four distinct culinary concepts, a 3,000-square-foot fitness center and yoga studio, kids’ club with daily activities, and 4,600 square feet of event space, including an outdoor patio and spacious event lawn, offering an idyllic setting for picturesque gatherings. Tucked among lush gardens, an Auberge Spa will feature 11 treatment rooms and a variety of treatments inspired by the rich heritage and healing properties of the surrounding Riviera Nayarit region. The resort’s beach spans 1,850 linear feet of pristine sand, perfect for swimming and paddle boarding.
