Four Seasons Unveils Retreat in Mexico’s Jalisco Jungle


The Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo, Mexico has debuted across 3,000 acres of verdant jungle in the state of Jalisco. The cliffside property serves as a showcase of expertise by an elite design team comprising Victor Legorreta, Mauricio Rocha, Mario Schjetnan—all three of whom formed the practice LegoRocha for this project—and Uribe Krayer.

“The 155-room resort was built to look camouflaged in the landscape and almost disappear into nature,” says the design team. “We studied the terrain’s curves so that they could insert the buildings while respecting the reserve. It features many surprises—this sense of mystery is very common in Mexican architecture. It is an architecture that is about emotions, one that makes you discover it as you walk through it.”

Local stone laid by artisans infuses a reference to pre-Hispanic traditions across the contemporary architectural design, echoing natural earth tones and regional color and texture. Cement, lava rock, and wood round out the organic palette while also recalling the surrounding tropical splendor. The thoughtful interior design showcases local materials and textiles to instill an authentic sense of place. Elements of pre-Hispanic culture and colonial heritage also abound—creating a sense of timelessness.

In addition to an 18-hole golf course, the Four Seasons Resort Tamarindo, Mexico features amenities like a three pools, a full-service spa, fitness center, and a range of outdoor activities. Four F&B venues also maximize a connection to the outdoors, ranging from a beach bar and grill to a bar and restaurant overlooking the sea.
