Dos Catrinas is a new restaurant at Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita

Work starts on restaurant at luxury Mexican resort

Work has started on building a new restaurant inspired by Mexico’s rich cultural heritage at Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita on the country’s Pacific coast.

Designed by Colombian architect Saul Sasson, Dos Catrinas will replace the resort’s signature restaurant Ketsi with a new concept accommodating up to 278 guests across a completely reimagined two-storey space with spectacular ocean views. The ground level will contain the main restaurant and bar, while the upstairs level features a second bar and lounge area suitable for socialising before and after meals.

The 5,383 sq ft venue will incorporate locally inspired design elements such as copper lamps, black clay, huanacaxtle wood and textiles. All construction materials, furniture and accessories will be sourced locally.

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is located in a picturesque fishing village on the south-western point of the Riviera Nayarit, approximately 45 minutes’ drive from Puerto Vallarta.

John O’Sullivan, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, said: “Riviera Nayarit has long been an oasis for travellers in search of a luxury seaside escape seasoned with authentic cultural experiences. Dos Catrinas is the perfect marriage of Mexico’s rich history and modern regional cuisine served in Pinta Mita today, and we look forward to offering a new, magical culinary experience for our guests.”

Dos Catrinas is expected to open in December 2018.
