The Hotel
Perched on the south Pacific coast of Nicaragua rests a land untouched for centuries.  Surrounded by the pristine waters of the ocean, offering over sixteen hundred acres of forest and shoreline, we invite you to experience this hidden gem.  Welcome to Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa! Mukul, the Mayan word for “secret,” features thirty-seven accommodations, from tree house Bohios to beachfront Villas, each with an ocean view, private pool and dedicated staff. Resort amenities include five dining options; Spa Mukul, with six private spa-treatment sanctuaries; a palapa covered lounge featuring dining and lounge areas and an oceanfront swimming pool; a beach club, and the 18-hole Guacalito Golf Course. Guests enjoy access to the property’s four miles of white-sand beach and rugged coastline, where they can try their hand at archery, biking, hiking, paddle-boarding, surfing or yoga, to name a few. Guests can also explore Nicaragua through customized experiences that introduce them to the nature, culture and people of the “land of lakes and volcanoes.”

• The owners, the Pellas Family are Nicaraguans who believe in the potential of the jewel our country represents. Then, Mukul’s involvement with the local community of Tola reaches farther than the employment of residents at the resort—it also funds schools and a hospital named after Pellas’s wife and fellow plane crash survivor, Vivian. Most of the people that work at the resorts are citizens of the local community who have been trained with skills to provide the best luxury service. Mukul was constructed of recycled materials, especially the wood that was used to build the structure of the resort and its furniture as well.
• Mukul was designed to have minimal impact on its tropical forest. In fact, over 1,500 trees from the site were replanted instead of being cut down for timber.
• La Cocina NiKul serves dishes made with local ingredients that truly represents the taste of Nicaragua. Innovative dishes are made with local Nicaraguan ingredients, including organic grass-fed beef, produce grown by nearby farmers and fish caught by fishermen in the neighbouring villages of Gigante and San Juan del Sur.
