Nightly rates from $990 USD.

The One&Only brand is known for its wow factor, and Mandarina, one of Mexico’s newest high-end resorts, lives up to this reputation and then some.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and set amid the rainforest, it offers 105 tree houses and clifftop villas with private plunge pools and terraces.

All feature views of the Pacific Coast, Sierra del Vallejo mountains, or rainforest. Travelers who really want to live large should book Villa One: Spanning close to 19,000 square feet, it has three bedrooms, an infinity pool, a gym, a spa, and a movie theater.

Celebrity Mexican chef Enrique Olvera is behind the dining, and the spa is a highlight with its many Eastern- and Western-inspired treatments.

The resort also has a beach club and equestrian center.
