Nekupe Sporting Resort and Retreat is a 1,300-acre nature reserve in Nicaragua’s Pacific countryside that focuses on mind, body, and soul with an emphasis on respecting nature. Every program and building here has been created for sustainability, with solar panels being used to make a minimal impact on the environment.
Located in Nandaime, the place of abundant streams, Nekupe Sporting Resort and Retreat is an oasis for nature lovers. More than 158 species of plants and 14,000 trees abound here, along with an animal sanctuary amidst the variety of accommodation options.
La Residencia Dona Theresita is a luxurious space that feels like a dream home. Each of the four rooms offer views of the beautiful green forest. The entire space can be rented out for guests to enjoy its personal chef, two pools, dining areas and kitchens, media room, and bar areas in exclusivity. The Roble Grand Suite has stunning views of the Nekupe property and howler monkeys pass through the forest quite often. Four private villas rest atop a forest canopy to fully immerse guests into nature with views of the Mombacho volcano. Rest in Egyptian cotton sheets and relax in a soaking tub filled with the scent of the Sacuanjoche, the national flower of Nicaragua. Guests in the Villa Genizaro will be greeted with a basket of seasonal fruit and juices and a piece of local pottery.
At the heart of Nekupe lies the Casa Club, a communal place to sip on a drink and chat with other guests. Dine on traditional Nicaraguan fare at Don Alfredo’s restaurant, or head outside to have a picnic lunch by day or a candlelit dinner by night.
This is a sanctuary for well-being. Native based treatments help guests unwind at the spa. Daily yoga classes are accompanied by vegetarian meals and spa treatments at the annual Yoga Retreat, or reduce stress through a game of tennis. Horseback ride through the trails of lush forests, teak plantations, and rivers, or go bird watching to spot one of the many tropical and rare birds that reside on this property.
For more soothing pursuits, sit around the firepit to watch the stars, read poetry, and listen to traditional Nicaraguan legends. Discover the beets, carrots, and array of spices that are grown on-site and learn how to cook recipes from the local villages with the chef. Paint the beautiful natural surroundings at an art class, or learn the dance and music of the people who live here.Request Information
