Bringing 5 star luxury to Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast, Mukul Resort sits on a four-mile stretch of pristine white sand, fringed by lush rainforest. Offering authentic Nicaraguan style with a luxurious finish, Mukul is the perfect spot to unwind and immerse yourself in your natural surroundings.
Each of the 37 guest rooms offers space, privacy and ocean views. Decoration is in harmony with the local surroundings: carved native teak tables, sugarcane twig headboards and rum barrel staves – all sourced straight from Nicaraguan artisans.
Built as a tribute to the rolling surf of Playa Manzanillo, each of the 12 beach villas feature a wrap-around deck, private swimming pool and a secret garden with an outdoor shower. The bathrooms have separate his and hers vanity rooms - one facing the palatial garden, the other facing the ocean – and each with monsoon showers and soaking tubs.
The two-bedroom villas are family compounds with their own private kitchen, pantry and living room
Perched 300 feet above the Playa Manzanillo and nestled like tree houses in the lush rainforest canopy, these 621 square-foot houses are like something from a storybook, offering privacy and luxury with a distinctly Nicarguan flair.
Built from sustainable native teak and pine, each of the 23 Bohios features floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the sea below. On the wooden deck you will find a private plunge pool and separate veranda with daybed. The spacious bathroom includes a wet room, double vanity room, a spacious walk-in closet and double-headed shower.
Casona Don Carlos
Located adjacent to the beach villas, Casona Don Carlos is the Pellas family’s private beach residence. This oceanfront compound features a 20,000 square-foot indoor-outdoor living area with high ceilings, six bedroom suites, a wrap-around stone terrace and a large private swimming pool.
The Spa Mukul centres on six individual experiences, each housed in a private spa suite. Each offers its own sequence of treatments, harnessing different ancient healing traditions from around the world, often using locally-sourced Nicaraguan ingredients. These completely private treatment rooms consist of large luxury suites with their own steam and tropical showers and relaxation spaces with outdoor pools – giving you your very own space to unwind and truly relax.
The focus at Mukul is on local flavours and Nicaraguan ingredients. The menus feature dishes from famed Chef Ortiz whose distinguished culinary career has taken him to some of the finest resorts of the Caribbean and Mexico. For snacks and cocktails, head to the split-level bar at the Beach Club. For dinner, you can choose between the palapa-shaded Terras or the barefoot-dining Parrilla on the beach.
