"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.

Beautiful resort with amazing amenities. Gorgeous beaches. Known for the best surf but be aware it’s not a beach to wade in the water at. Rough surf. Our villa was gorgeous right on the ocean with direct access from our private pool. Huge accommodations with very comfortable king bed and separate sink areas for myself and husband. All the restaurants we ate at were delicious. We went fishing and chef prepared Mahi ceviche and tacos for us later that day. We tried their tasting menu dinner but wasn’t that thrilled, better off at the terrace restaurant. Staff are very friendly and accommodating even with a slight language barrier. All smiles. Another note to mention is the fact that it’s quite a long drive from Managua to Mukul. There were some dangerous government protests in Managua so the resort flew us to an airport near Mukul from Managua. It’s pricey but well worth it. Definitely suggest it to all interested. I wouldn’t recommend as a place to bring younger children.

Visited with my family for a week. Beautiful hidden gem, there were few other guests, including a movie star who said she could not believe how quiet it was, made it feel like our own retreat spot. We had a 2 house villa on the beach with a private pool, which we loved. I practiced yoga dailyon a platform high on a cliff overlooking the Pacific, amazing instructor. My daughter took surf lessons from an Sustrdlusn who did an amazing job since she had never surfed before. There was a fishing tournament over the weekend, Mukul's owner invited us to a private beach party as the boats came in, he was so kind and friendly as was his family. There are 3 restaurants on location, food was delicious, breakfast was included which was anything off the menu. We all had massages, the spa has 4 different "temples" for special therapies. We felt so indulged. Would highly recommend Mukul to anyone looking for a great get away in a beautiful location!

This is considered possibly the finest resort in all of Central America, and it would be hard for me to argue. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here and stayed (over the course of 6 days) in 3 different units... beginning with the Ocean View Bohio for one night, then two nights in an Ocean View Villa, and finally the last 3 in a bi-level Ocean Front Villa. The combination of luxury, beauty, relaxation, food, friendliness, amenities, EVERYTHING... was overwhelmingly perfect! We will definitely visit again!

Although the prices are not cheap, Mukul is worth every penny. The beaches are flawless, the food is thoughtful, the property is breathtaking and the rooms are relaxing. We went there for dinner while staying at another hotel and literally fell in love. We moved the next morning for the rest of our stay and even extended our stay two more days. Although we didn’t go off property much due to unrest in the country, we couldn’t have felt safer. The property is extremely private and gated. They also have a kids club that our daughter enjoyed daily and babysitting options. I went for a run daily to other secluded beaches. This is a real gem.

Mukul has always been a favorite when I travel to Nicaragua. The staff are so accommodating to your every need. The spa is outstanding and have individual temples to choose from. The restaurant is great. This time I tried the beet humus it was amazing! They have two big beautiful pools as well. I’ve had a bbq night dinner on the beach before which was outstanding. I absolutely love their 1 bedroom villas. It’s so romantic has a jacuzzi and you’re right in the middle of nature and with an ocean view couldn’t be better than that
