"Mukul" is the Mayan word for "secret," and at Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa on Nicaragua's Emerald Beach, another secret is ready to be discovered every day. This hidden gem offers breathtaking views of turquoise waters and verdant mountains, hikes up dramatic cliffs, and short helicopter rides to beautiful islands and fascinating volcanoes. The Emerald Coast of Nicaragua is a 30-mile expanse of Pacific shoreline strewn with pristine jungles, rising cliffs, untouched beaches, and charming fishing villages.

Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa is the first luxury accommodation in Nicaragua, and opens to 1,600 private acres of lush vegetation. This hotel features 37 guest accommodations, each of which offers space and privacy in a style that compliments the natural surroundings and provides stunning ocean views. Furnishings are crafted by local Nicaraguan artisans, and reflect the traditions of the country.

Relax in one of six individual private casitas at The Spa Mukul, each of which offers a different ancient healing tradition. Book a tee time at Guacolito's Golf Course. Explore the beauty of Nicaragua with a staff of Adventure Rangers, then take a 12-kilometer bike ride on trails surrounded by native wildlife. Enjoy snorkeling, swimming, and sailing in the glistening waters, or surf on world-class waves.

Wake up to fresh smoothies and coffee in the morning, then enjoy snacks and cocktails at the split-level bar in the afternoon. Experience local tastes prepared by Chef Ortiz at the palapa-shaded Terras, or barefoot dining on the beach at Parrilla. Dishes feature local Nicaraguan ingredients, including organic grass-fed beef, fresh produce, and fish caught in the nearby village of Gigante.

Come to Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa to discover the secrets of Nicaragua.

We spent 4 nights at Mukul and cried when it was time to go 😉. We stayed in Bohio 5, with an ocean view. The room has a plunge pool on the terrace , comfortable bed , fabulous bathroom and plenty of storage. We golfed 3 Times and were the only people on this magnificent golf course . Where else can you golf listening to howler monkeys , the tees are positioned well for all level players. The pools here are over the top magnificent, the beach is lovely, with surfing available if you like. The food is delicious and all locally sourced . The staff is so well trained , every person from the golf cart drivers, dining , pool, housekeeping work with a team attitude . They can not do enough for you . The spa is out of this world, not to be believed ! I’ve never experienced such a considerate and attentive staff and well appointed hotel. Every light fixture , drape, landscaping , every detail was done with perfection. Can not wait to return !

We found this gem through Tropic Surf which is located at the resort. As a builder I was blown away by the craftsmanship at this resort. The lobby has this mesmerizing chandelier that blew me away. They used huge trees that were downed by an Atlantic hurricane and shipped them over as to avoid cutting down living trees. We stayed in one of the one bedroom oceanfront villas which was equally as awesome. I've included photos that tell the story. I highly recommend the resort, it's very unique and you'll have an amazing experience. Also I would advise you research how the resort was built and its owner Carlos Pellas. Very interesting story and will explain why this is such a special place.

One word, unbelievable!

My favorite part of the hotel is their amazing people, they make sure their guest are always confortable and happy. I even remember, one night i was in the dance floor and when they saw i was tired, they asked me if i was agree to wear a super confortable slippers while they brought my shoes to the room! This is unreal. For everything else my comments are super positive. I would certainly invite you to visit this hotel, you will not regret. PS. If you are interested in the spa services, I loved the "Rain Forest"

I think I fell in love with the country of Nicaragua during the 2.5 hour drive between the Managua airport and Mukul. There is a short 15-20 min flight but I'm glad we took the scenic route. The countryside and how the locals lived was awesome. There are cows, pigs, horses, chickens and of course house pets roaming everywhere. We travel to Mexico a lot but this is much different than what we see between the airport and resorts in Mexico. Loved it! Ok now the resort. Mukul's location is amazing. The resort is nestled in a cove of sorts so it is very hidden. Mukul actually means secret but I don't think it'll be a secret long. The rooms, attentive personnel, and food are all amazing. If this same resort were in Costa Rica or Mexico they'd easily charge twice as much for the rooms. I felt we got amazing deal on the room rate and it included breakfast and transfer to and from airport. The beach felt like it was our private beach and we never once had to save chairs or anything. There is a beach club call tres ceibas that you get access to while at Mukul but the food at Mukul beach right at the hotel is so much better. We felt the quality of the food from room service was just ok and decided half way into the trip to just each lunch beachside as opposed to in our room. I am sure we will come back. The place was amazing. Oh and the spa right up there with the best spas anywhere.

Put yours Thumbs...WAY UP...!!

This is luxury at a whole new level. The setting is wonderful, with a private beach that seems to go forever, and individual casitas that are beautifully appointed with all the modern conveniences. The views from the balconies are breathtaking, with the monkeys, parrots, and occasional waterfowl, making their distinct sounds. The service is awesome and the staff has been trained to attend to your every need. Having said all that...... my favorite part, was the Guacalito golf course. A perfectly manicured property, with all the challenges to meet every golfers need. A great place to be. Don't miss this jewel of Nicaragua.
