SOMA is a beautifully designed surf resort with thought and care in the details. You can relax in simple luxury, eat delicious food, and access some of the best breaks in Nicaragua. Popoyo is an undeveloped community and during the last 1.5 hours from the Pan American highway you will travel on a dirt road. It's worth the trouble to...

We had bought a accomodation and meals package for a 5 night stay in Nicaragua. The Soma property is gorgeous. Beautiful location and tastefully done. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and clean. The meals were wonderful, fresh, healthy and locally sourced as much as possible. The staff and owners (Bill and Casey) were friendly and helpful beyond the call of...

Soma is a beautifully appointed, comfortable and lovely boutique resort. We stayed in room #4, with 3 twin beds (two pushed together for my husband & me plus one for our teenage daughter), plenty of room and a spacious bathroom. The beds were super comfy and the A/C and ceiling fan worked perfectly to keep us cool in the Nicaraguan...

We had the entire resort to ourselves when we stayed for a week. The resort is in a remote part of the country and we really enjoyed the isolation. The bungalow was huge with a wonderful shower and bathroom. We could access Wifi from our room. The food was excellent and the kitchen staff were very accommodating for my picky...

Let's start with rooms: they are huge and comfortable, especially in the bungalows, and spotless clean. The pool area, breakfast room and dinner room are equally inviting. The photos do not do enough justice for the resort area. The best part of Soma is the service. As the resort is very small the service is very personal and all your...

The rooms were very nice and super comfortable. The food was AMAZING! I loved all of the staff. They were very helpful and friendly. I would say that if you are surfing make sure to bring some heavy duty sunscreen since the closest store is a good distance away. Would totally recommend this place!

We don't stay at Soma because we live in Nica within driving distance. However, they have some of the best food on the pacific coast of Nicaragua. Over the years we have been to Soma for various occasions and their fabulous menu never disappoints. Today, four of us traveled to Soma for a relaxing and delicious lunch. I had the...

Soma Surf Resort is a magical getaway. The owner Bill took us to several beautiful beaches, we had a blast learning how to surf, ate many delicious meals, and were able to unplug from the world hidden away at Soma. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quieter, more peaceful getaway, where they can also...
