Mexico's Las Alamandas transformation completed

Las Alamandas completed a major renovation that transformed this hideaway on Mexico’s Costalegre.

The renovation to the boutique, all-suite resort included the building of four new facilities: the additional garden villa, Casa San Isidro, with two suites; a house, Casa la Loma, with two suites; an art gallery and lounge; and an open-air rooftop bar-lounge. Also, completely remodeled inside and out are the three beachfront villas, including Casa del Sol, the Presidential Villa. Jacuzzis were also added in most suites, and the tennis court resurfaced.

The newly built villa, Casa San Isidro, is set atop a small knoll amid gardens. It offers two private suites with jacuzzis, spacious baths with oversize showers with two showerheads and sitting bench, and panoramic sea and garden views.

Casa Domo, Casa Isabel and Casa del Sol, the beachfront villas with ocean views, were revamped with such features as white polished cement floors, walk-in closets, new jacuzzis and Mexican chic decor, highlighted by sofas in exotic colors, embroidered cushions, hand-painted accents and Mexican art work. The new master bathrooms have been reappointed with vanity area and oversize showers with two showerheads. In Casa del Sol, the Presidential Villa, doors open completely to an enlarged terrace with an infinity pool.

The upgrades to the garden villas, Casa San Antonio, Casa Azul and Casa San Miguel, continued the Mexican chic interior decor throughout the resort’s villas. The remodeled bathrooms now offer such features as elaborate tile work, oversized bathtubs and interior gardens with skylights. Jacuzzis were installed in most of the suites.

The new Casa la Loma offers a garden-view suite with a bathroom and a TV den, and an ocean-view suite with a bathroom, a living room and a terrace with a day bed, a pergola and panoramas of the Pacific. With the additions of Casa la Loma and Casa San Isidro, the resort now has seven villas and one house with a total of 18 suites. Twelve of the 18 suites now have Jacuzzis.

The art gallery and lounge is the new gathering spot. Estrella Azul, the “Blue Star,” is a new rooftop lounge decorated in shades of blue.

Las Alamandas was developed by Goldsmith-Patiño.
