Founded in the late 1980s, the domain of the extravagant British billionaire Sir James Goldsmith is, since 2004 and under the impulse of his daughter Alix Marcaccini, the most confidential hotel in Mexico. Neo-Moorish-inspired madness with its eleven rooms, three villas and infinity pool overlooking a private beach, this VIP haunt (including, at random, Emily Ratajkowski, the Delevingne family, Madonna, Mick Jagger or Heidi Klum) still hosts parties whose proud founder would be proud. A utopia as we do more, set in a park of ten hectares on the wild Costalegre, with an airstrip, a farm allowing it a perfect self-sufficiency, tennis courts and golf courses, stables and, above all, its own Unesco Biosphere nature reserve, counting zebras, antelopes, crocodiles, pumas or jaguars, some of which move freely around the hotel, among some twelve thousand species of plants and birds.
The place also has its own conservation and research programs, for felines, crocodiles, birds, but especially the very endangered sea turtles. Seven hundred thousand of their young have been protected and released since the beginning of the program, thirty years ago, greatly increasing the number of nests on the Mexican coast. And when the season allows, guests are called to help by helping to collect eggs and release newborns.
