Mukul Resort

San Juan del Sur

Located on Playa Manzanillo, close to the Costa Rican border, this is Nicaragua’s newest hotel and hopefully a sign of things to come as the country only has a few truly superb hotels.  With 37 rooms spread out over a large area, a first class spa and located on a superb crest of white sand with a golf course in its backyard you are never going to be short of things to do.

THE DETAIL

The hotel has 37 rooms in essentially two categories; Beach Villas or Bohios, though there is also a private house available and each offers space and privacy and views of the ocean come as standard. Craft furnishings and decorations come straight from Nicaraguan artisans – carved native teak tables, sugarcane twig headboards and rum barrel staves. In Bohios, Beach Villas or in the crown jewel, Casona Don Carlos, make yourself at home.

The 12 Beach Villas have bathrooms which include separate his and hers vanity rooms, one facing a palatial garden, the other facing the ocean, both with a Liquid Temple filled monsoon showers and soaking tubs. Outside, each Beach Villa includes a wrap-around deck, private swimming pool, outdoor lounging palapa and a secret garden with an outdoor shower.

Mukul’s 23 Bohios are located 300 feet above the beach, nestled like tree houses in the lush rainforest canopy.  These 621 square-foot houses offer privacy and luxury while remaining uniquely Nicaraguan. Built of sustainable native teak and pine, each has floor-to-ceiling glass perfectly framing the sapphire sea below. A sliding glass door leads onto a sweeping wooden deck with a private plunge pool and separate lounging veranda with custom daybed. The spacious bathroom is surfaced in Nicaraguan travertine marble and includes a wet room, double vanity, spacious walk-in closet and double-headed shower.

Casona Don Carlos is the Pellas family’s private beach residence and is located adjacent to the Beach Villas, the oceanfront compound features a 20,000 square-foot indoor-outdoor living area with soaring 80-foot-high palapa ceilings, six bedroom suites, a wrap-around stone terrace and a large private swimming pool.

The Spa

The Spa at Mukul includes six experiences housed in six individual, private spa casitas, each equally harnessing a different ancient healing tradition, often using local Nicaraguan ingredients. This isn’t a spa where you check in at the front desk or wait in reception. Instead, you are personally escorted to your pre-booked private spa for the day. Upon arriving to your spa casita, therapists welcome you inside the private entry garden with a footbath ritual, and other treatments based on your individual needs. It’s then and there all notion of time seems to vanish as you leave the everyday world behind.
