Rejoicing in a stunning setting on a majestic sweep of Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast, Mukul Beach, Golf and Spa is stretched along four miles of white sand. Translating into ‘secret’ in Tzozil, a Mayan language, privacy and discretion prevails at this beachside paradise, which strikes a perfect balance with nature. Noted for its eighteen-hole golf course, a trip here promises endless fun for golfers amidst undulating terrain.
Inside the resort’s beach Villas and Bohios are features sourced straight from Nicaraguan artisans and authentic furnishings, including rum barrel staves. Cream and teak are offset flawlessly by blazes of tropical flowers and the rolling surf of Playa Manzanillo. Three hundred feet high, bohios are hugged by lush rainforest canopy, and built of sustainable native teak and pine. Contemplate the surrounding beauty from your generous outdoor living space: a private garden with an outdoor shower, wraparound deck and lounging palapa. Few places can rival the regal Casona Don Carlos; boasting 20,000 square feet of space, it features four-bedroom suites, a large private pool and direct beach access.
At La Terrazza, organic grass-fed beef is Nicaraguan and produce is grown by local farmers. La Mesa is formal and elegant, offering an a la carte menu and a wine pairing experience. Listen to upbeat Latin music at Tres Ceibas Sports Bar and Grill, a laidback venue centred round a wraparound bar and a towering Ceiba tree. After dinner, retire to the beachside Palapa Lounge for board games, lounge music and rum tastings; learn about the resort’s very own award-winning Flor de Cana Rum.
Steeped in allure, the resort’s Spa embodies a voyage into wellness principles all over the world. Each of the six suites harnesses a different ancient healing tradition. Suites include the Hammam Temple, which is inspired by Turkish and Moorish architecture.
