On a secluded four-mile stretch of white, sandy beach on the Emerald Coast of Nicaragua sits Mukul Resort. The retreat is a testament to sustainability, utilizing local materials paired with responsible building practices and completely integrating the structures to the land by building around existing landscapes.
A collection of 37 beach villas and bohios are set on Manzanillo Beach with views of the ocean, or nestled in the rainforest. Each accommodation is decorated with art and furnishings from local artisans including sugarcane twig headboards and carved native teak tables. The 12 beach villas feature monsoon showers and soaking tubs, a wrap around deck, complete with a private swimming pool, lounging palapa, and outdoor shower. The 23 rainforest bohios are built from sustainable teak and pine and include floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the sweeping views. Guests can cool off in the bohio’s private plunge pool or lounge on the daybed on the veranda.
For the ultimate in private luxury, guests may enjoy Casona Don Carlos, the Pellas family’s private beach house when the family is not in residence. The sprawling estate includes six bedroom suites, 80-foot palapa ceilings, a wrap-around stone terrace and a private swimming pool with direct access to Manzanillo Beach.
Mukul Resort features an 18-hole golf course with holes that wrap around old guanacaste, tamarindo, and mango trees and are perched atop ocean bluffs. The course was designed to preserve the natural environment, yet remain challenging for players of all skill levels. After a day of golf, enjoy a spa treatment in one of the six spa treatment casitas at Spa Mukul which feature private steam and tropical showers. Treatments utilize local Nicaraguan ingredients and can last anywhere from three hours to a full day.Request Information
