Starting at the San Nicholas River, the coast of Chamela runs south as far as the town of Chamela, bordering with Costa Careyes. It is flanked at each end by two major developments; Las Alamandas to the north and the new ultra-luxury 7-star resort of the Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH) Group. The coastline becomes more rugged and lush than found in Majahuas to the north, with plenty of small coves and beaches dotting the shoreline.
In between is the small, secluded beachfront community of Pérula. There are just a few homes here, bordering a beautiful 8 km. stretch of a soft white sand beach that makes up most of the bay of Chamela. In front of Chamela are the islands La Colorada, Cocinas, San Andrés, Pajarera (reserve of exotic birds and ideal place for diving), Novilla, Esfinge, San Pedro, San Agustín, and La Negrita, home to a rich marine life and sea birds.
The LVMH resort hotel will be part of their luxury hotel collection called The Cheval Blanc, which is a collection of boutique hotels that currently can be found in the Courchevel French Alps, the Maldives and Saint Barth Isle de France. The master plan consists of 910 hectares of land and will include an 18-hole Robert von Hagge Golf Course, a "Villa Maison" Cheval Blanc Hotel (68 rooms), 18 Cheval Blanc Branded Villas and up to 525 real estate units, all either oceanfront or ocean view. It is slated to be ready for release by 2017.
Las Alamandas is owned by Isabel Goldsmith, and features a small boutique hotel with only 16 large suites that can accommodate up to to 42 guests, all located on 600 hectares of private land. It is a self-contained, ecological reserve with four pristine beaches and lagoons, but she does not offer any real estate purchase opportunities.
