Mukul Resort & Spa, the first luxury boutique hotel in Nicaragua, will open on February 1, 2013 at Guacalito de la Isla, a 1,670-acre, US$250-million low-density, private beach community on Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast created by businessman Carlos Pellas.
Mukul will feature 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 golf course.
Guests will be able to 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. Additionally, guests can explore Nicaragua through customized experiences that introduce them to the nature, culture and people of this up-and-coming tourism destination.
According to an official statement by Mukul’s public relations representatives, opening rates at Mukul will start at US$525 per double per night, including breakfast, lunch, domestic premium open bar during the day and private ground transportation to and from Managua International Airport.
“We are doing everything at Mukul to the highest standards so that we can attract the most sophisticated travelers in the world,” said Pellas, adding “I want them to feel like guests in my family’s home as they discover the Nicaragua that I love”.
Mukul and Guacalito de la Isla are the vision of prominent Nicaraguan entrepreneur Don Carlos Pellas, whose family has roots in the country that date back to the 19th century. The Pellas family businesses include transportation, computers, sugar, ethanol, the world-wide awarded Flor de Caña Rum and Vivian Pellas Hospital. Pellas also founded the BAC Credomatic financial network in 1985, which was sold to GE Capital in 2011 in what was the largest business transaction in Central American history.
