Mukul Resort sits along a beautiful four-mile stretch of white sandy beach epitomising the name Mukul which means secret in Mayan. The Beach Villas range from 300 sq metres to 800 sq metres and the Bohios rooms are perched dramatically on the hillside among the lush canopy, 91 metres above Playa Manzanillo.
All villas offer inside and outside living with wrap around balconies and private plunge pools of varying sizes.
There is no shortage of activities, these include nature walks accompanied by a knowledgeable naturalist, fish for marlin, red snapper and more (depending on the season) or play golf on the 18-hole course designed by David McLay Kidd.
why we like it
It is quite simply the most luxurious property in the country. If private butlers, helicopter transfers, fine dining and endles spa treatments sound like your kind of holiday then Mukul will tick the boxes. There is really no need to even leave the resort, but make sure you do. Nicaragua is culturally very rich and you will miss out if you don't.
