Marriott Invests in Riviera Nayarit


Marriott International, the American multinational diversified hospitality company that manages and franchises a broad portfolio of hotels and related lodging facilities, has announced four new hotels to be developed in Riviera Nayarit. The new hotels will follow the “all included” format and construction is expected to begin in 2023 within NIA, a new development by Artha Capital.


NIA is being planned in a 90-hectare area and the resorts will be developed along a 1 km. beach stretch, starting with a 400-room Westin Resort and a 240-room Ritz-Carlton resort, both expected to be completed in 2023. An Autograph Collection, 300-room hotel will follow, along with a 500-room Marriott Hotel, both of which are expected to begin operations in 2025.


Presently, Marriott International has two resorts in Riviera Nayarit: The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort and W Punta de Mita, with 130 and 119 rooms, respectively. In December 2018, the company also authorized a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, to be developed within the Costa Canuva development, some 80 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. • Riviera Nayarit, image courtesy of Marriott International
