Once the private home of financier Sir James Goldsmith, this vast 30,000-acre estate of tropical jungle, coconut groves and mango plantations has since been transformed by his daughter Alix into an extravagant eco-retreat. The property has long attracted a host of distinguished guests, including s number of American presidents. There are four lavish suites in the main house, plus six standalone bungalows with direct access to an oceanfront pool and ten casitas set further away with access to their own restaurant, bar and swimming pool. For the utmost privacy, book one of the three villas; each one is fully staffed and comes with a full-size infinity pool. With its host of wide-ranging habitats, the estate is home to roaming zebra, iguanas, jaguars and over 270 species of migratory birds and it is so large that a fleet of jeeps are available for guests to rent to get around.
The Goldsmiths are passionate about the environment, and their 30-year turtle release programme has helped a million hatchlings reach the ocean, while many of the restaurant's ingredients are grown on the on-site biodynamic farm. There are three private beaches; some more suited to swimming and kayaking, others for scenic walks or sailing trips, and a brand new wellness centre offers yoga, meditation and massage programmes.
The resort's focus is on authentic farm-to-fork dining, and almost everything is sourced from the estate or the ranch at sister property Hacienda de San Antonio. Guests staying in the villas have a private cook, while fine-dining restaurant La Loma is designed for guests staying in the main house and surrounding bungalows. Relaxed beachside grill Caleta Blanca serves pizzas, steaks and fresh fish, while Casa Gomez is reserved for guests in the casitas, with a menu of local Mexican specialities.
