Luxurious $250M Mukul Resort & Spas in Guacalito de la Isla will put Nicaragua on the world tourism map
Committed to creating one of the world’s most exclusive boutique resorts, the Latin America’s one of the most influential and richest person Don Carlos Pellas whose family has roots in Nicaragua that dates back to 19th Century, has now created a $250 million luxury boutique hotel and spa in Guacalito de la Isla, which will open in February 2013. Notably, with both Mukul Resort & Spa and Guacalito de la Isla, Pellas is actually establishing his family legacy – a pristine natural sanctuary where guests from across the globe will enjoy luxury living while connecting in an authentic way to the culture, people, and land of Nicaragua. And in return, the surrounding community will benefit from the resulting improved quality of life. However, with the opening of this 1,670-acre private beach community on Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast, which will ultimately act as a catalyst that will put the country on the world tourism map and the jet-setters vacation-list, Carlos Pellas impressively joins the exclusive league of billionaires who invested multi-millions in hotels and resorts.
Designed by an impressive team of noted industry leaders, starting from HKS Hill Glazier Architects to spa expert Angel Vezina Stewart, Mukul impressively reflects Don Carlos Pella’s philosophy that guests at Mukul are not just other hotel guests, but Pellas family’s personal guests.
Also, the furnishing and decorations on the inside reflect the traditions of the country.
The Mayan word for ‘secret’, Mukul will feature a total of 37 luxury accommodations designed in a style that combines modern elegance with traditional Nicaraguan roots, each with an ocean view, pool and private staff.
Other resort amenities include an impressive Spa Mukul, with 6 private spa-treatment casitas; a beach club that features dining and lounge areas and a swimming pool; and the 18-hole Guacalito Golf Course designed by David McLay Kidd.
The discerning A-list guests will also enjoy access to the unique property’s 4-miles of white-sand beach and rugged coastline, along with 3-miles of nature trails on which they can hike or bike to observe wildlife residing in the lush coastal forest, and the up-and-coming tourism destination, known as the ‘land of lakes and volcanoes’.
Offering breathtaking ocean views all the way to the horizon, the tree-house-esque Bohios which perch dramatically on a steep hillside 300 feet above Playa Manzanillo, is notably the highlight of Mukul.
Built of sustainable native teak and pine, each of the 23 Bohios feature floor-to-ceiling glass, a sliding glass door leads onto a sweeping wooden deck with a private plunge pool and separate lounging veranda with custom daybed.
And when the Pellas family is not living here at Mukul, the guests may also book suites within Casona Don Carlos, the Pellas’ 20,000 sq. ft. 6 bedroom oceanfront compound.
Opening rates at Mukul start at $550 per double per night, which includes breakfast, lunch, open domestic bar during the day and private ground transportation to/from Managua International Airport.
