On Friday, July 22, 2016 the Grupo Autofin Monterrey inaugurated the Grand Sirenis Matlali Hills Resort & Spa, which is perched on a mountain in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Riviera Nayarit. During the event they also announced a new beach development that will complement this marvelous resort, giving the audience details of what will become the Puerto Bahía tourist center.
Armando Véjar Cortés, President and Managing Director of the Grupo Autofin Monterrey, and Enrique de la Madrid Cordero, Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism, were on hand to deliver the plaque that made the inauguration official. Nayarit and Jalisco’s state authorities and businessmen were also in attendance.
This is the first time Grupo Autofin Monterrey has made inroads into the tourism industry. The group chose the Riviera Nayarit thanks to its many natural attractions, as well as its growth as a national and international tourism destination.
Grand Sirenis Matlali was built at a cost of US$100 million and currently offers 170 luxury villas and suites, 109 of them located on the mountainside with ocean views and 61 set in the jungle. It also boasts four gourmet restaurants and snack bar, a spa, beach club, gym, a linear park, a kids club, botanical garden, two pools and two yachts for guests.
The second stage of the Grand Sirenis Matlali will be right on the beach to one side of the Marina Riviera Nayarit in the area where the beach club, Eva Mandarina, is located. The new development will represent an investment of US$28.5 million and is expected to open with 140 suites on December 1, 2017.
Grupo Autofin Monterrey’s future plans for the Puerto Bahía tourist center include several hotels from different chains, residential properties, a golf course, a hospital, a clinic for anti-aging treatments, a school specializing in hospitality and tourism, and a shopping mall, among other amenities and entertainment attractions to be set on 320 hectares in addition to the Grand Sirenis Matlali’s 30.
