Mukul Resort & Spa

For as long as you’re able to stay, consider Mukul home. Consider Playa Manzanillo’s immaculate white sands your personal playground. Consider the entire Emerald Coast of Nicaragua your kingdom. And certainly consider your accommodations your own private estate. Each of the 37 guest accommodations offers space and privacy in a style that fully embodies and compliments the natural surroundings. Views of the ocean come standard. Craft furnishings and decorations come straight from Nicaraguan artisans – carved native teak tables, sugarcane twig headboards and rum barrel staves. In Bohios, Beach Villas or in the crown jewel, Casona Don Carlos, make yourself at home.

Mukul Luxury Resort & Spa features a total of 37 rooms including, 12 one and two bedroom Beach & Ocean Front Villas with an area ranging from 955 sq ft to 2,620 sq ft plus terrace, and 23 Bohios with an area of 1,165 sq ft. including terrace.


The spacious Beach & Ocean Front Villas accommodations feature stone walls and gardens for privacy, and their white-stucco, red tile roofs exude the ambiance of luxurious vacation homes. Each Villa features indoor-outdoor setting, complete with swimming pool and wrap-around deck, offering breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Seemingly as a gesture of appreciation, the 12 Beach Villas at Mukul were built to pay tribute to the tropical, rolling surf of Playa Manzanillo. Above the entry vestibule hangs a chandelier made from custom-designed mussel sells. Bathrooms include separate his and hers vanity rooms, one facing a palatial garden, the other facing the ocean, both with a Liquid Temple filled monsoon showers and soaking tubs.


The Bohios nestled in the lush canopy perch dramatically on a steep hillside 300 ft above Playa Manzanillo, offering memorable sunsets all the way to the horizon. Each of the cliff houses features high ceilings and a wall of glass that opens onto a sweeping wooden deck with a private plunge pool. Everything about Mukul’s Bohios feel like something pulled from a storybook. Nestled like tree houses in the lush rainforest canopy, these 621 square-foot houses offer solace, privacy and luxury while remaining uniquely Nicaraguan.

Casona Don Carlos

The essence of Mukul’s hospitality philosophy is Casona Don Carlos, the Pellas family’s private beach residence and the crown jewel of Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast. Located adjacent to the Beach Villas, the oceanfront compound features a 20,000 sq-ft indoor-outdoor living area with a soaring 80-foot-high palapa ceiling, six bedroom suites, a wrap-around stone terrace and a large private swimming pool.

When the Pellas family is not in residence, guests will be welcome to roam around its open-air living spaces, as if they were guests of Don Carlos Pellas himself. Casona Don Carlos may be booked by guests as one accommodation.
