MAZATLAN — AMResorts has broken ground on the new Dreams Estrella del Mar Mazatlán, a US$70 million investment featuring 350 beachfront suites and an 18-hole professional golf course.
Located just 5.5 miles from Mazatlán’s International Airport in the private gated golf and residential community of Estrella del Mar, the new resort will be the 20th Dreams Resort & Spas branded property in the AMResorts portfolio. With this deal, the company remains on pace to reach its goal of more than 100 branded properties by the end of 2021.
On the company’s expansion plans and its partnership with project owner Grupo Pinsa, Javier Coll, Group President of parent company Apple Leisure Group, said: “Mexico remains a cornerstone of Apple Leisure Group’s global expansion strategy because of the number of destinations it offers that have yet to be explored by most North American travellers.
“We believe in Grupo Pinsa’s vision in the potential that Mazatlán offers, especially for a unique resort option such as Dreams Estrella del Mar Mazatlán, for adults and families alike.”
Upon completion, Dreams Estrella del Mar Mazatlán will offer five gourmet restaurants, multiple pools, an aquatic park and a lazy river, all of which face the Pacific Ocean. There’ll also be a theatre and a convention centre for up to 700 people, and a state-of-the-art Spa and Wellness Centre featuring treatment rooms with private terraces and a hydrotherapy area with waterfalls, whirlpools, geysers, a panoramic sauna and a hammam. The resort’s 350 beachfront suites will include 29 swimout suites and a separate adults-only section.
For golf enthusiasts, the 18-hole, 7,015-yard, par-72 golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. will boast tropical landscapes, recently expanded greens, new tee boxes and strategically placed bunkers. The John Jacobs Golf School, also located in the gated community, is offering personalized golf classes and clinics, equipment rental, a clubhouse with a pro-shop, a restaurant and a bar.
