As an Events Coordinator, I have been wooed by my fair share of properties. Hands down, I have never seen, or even dreamed, of a place such as the Mukul. Spiritual sanctuary meets luxury, add incredibly accommodating and friendly employees of all walks of property purpose, and the result is a resort of unparalleled beauty, service, and once in a...

We just returned from a fabulous six night stay at Mukul. Having been lucky enough to stay at some very special resorts over the years, we can honestly say that Mukul is at the top of the list. The resort is beautiful - it combines elegance with a low key atmosphere. The staff is very professional and anticipates one's every...

I hesitate to write about our wonderful week because the secret of the most beautiful hotel and Spa on the Emerald Coast of Nicaragua may get out. And it should. The resort, the staff and the people of Nicaragua are as amazing and beautiful as their country. From the moment we arrived we felt the warmth a guest might feel...

One of the finest resorts in the world and surely the number one spa experience in the world between the 5 different themed spa huts. First class resort in every aspect from the food to the service and accomodation houses. Not really a hotel more like houses etched along the ocean and hills with room service or golf cart transportation...

Truly special place. First class amenities that rival any 5-star resort globally. Spectacular views and year round weather. Incredible spa, 3-star Michelin dining and ton of incredible activities. Carlos Pallas has created a gem on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua! The warmth and friendliness of the staff are what separate Mukul from all the rest...

My husband and I spent four pleasant nights in an amazing beach front villa (#2) at Mukul. I'll keep this review short but I think the Jan. 3 Trip Advisor review titled "Wonderful but needs a few tweaks" best sums up the Mukul experience in detail. Our pros - private, spacious and beautiful villa with ocean views, pool, and small...

Can't take credit for that -- it's the phrase on a t-shirt in the gift shop. And actually, Mukul is much more than cool, it is EXCEPTIONAL in every way. Of course the accommodations, the spa, the views, and the staff are all top notch, but what really makes this a place to relax is the fact that it never...

We planned this trip after reading all the great reviews online. We flew into Managua and was-greeted by a Mukul staff. He then arranged a Mukul car service to drive us to the resort. Our driver, Henry, spoke excellent English and drove well. The car was connected to wifi and it was a nice feature. Our drive to Mukul took...

Overall we loved our stay at Mukul. The resort feels so exclusive, private and luxurious. As soon as you pull up you are welcomed with a delicious rum punch and the staff already know you by name. To check in we were taken in a golf buggy up the hill to our ocean view bohio. Slightly strange as once they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Mukul – “mukul” is the Mayan word for “secret” – features 37 spacious accommodations, each with an ocean view, pool and private staff. Other resort amenities include Spa Mukul, with six private spa-treatment casitas; a beach club featuring dining and lounge areas and a swimming pool; and the 18-hole Guacalito Golf Course. Guests enjoy access to the property’s four miles of white-sand beach and rugged coastline, and 12 kilometers of nature trails on which they can hike or bike to observe the four species of monkeys and other wildlife that reside in the lush coastal forest. Guests can also explore Nicaragua through customized experiences that introduce them to the nature, culture and people of this up-and-coming tourism destination, known as the “land of lakes and volcanoes.” ... more   less
