These lavish wooden casitas are built of sustainable native teak and pine, and each has a welcoming wooden deck with a private plunge pool. Especially intriguing are the outdoor ?showers-with-a-view??one villa even offers a ?liquid temple? complete with a monsoon shower and an entire wet room with a soaking tub. Globetrotters with no budget restraints should opt to rent resort owner Carlos Pellas?s personal vacation home; named Casona Don Carlos, the villa is a 20,000 square-foot, four-suite beachfront mansion with an indoor-outdoor living area, 80-foot high palapa ceiling, and wraparound stone terrace with a large private swimming pool. What else would you expect from the richest man in Nicaragua?  If all this barefoot luxury still isn?t enough, Mukul also has a sensuous spa offering sybaritic treatments from India, Turkey and Japan, a golf course designed by Scottish architect David McLay Kidd, plenty of lush tropical rainforest to explore, and playful monkeys swinging from the trees.

 

Things to Enjoy:

Pampering spa, 18-hole golf course, beach, excursions, or opt for a helicopter ride over the spectacular coastline to the Pellas family?s sugar cane plantation for a private tour of their famous rum distillery. 
 

 

The luxe amenities of this far-flung escape demand an ensemble that?s equally chic. Filip+Inna's chic Pilar Shorts are the perfect pick for louging by the beach or walking around discovering local bazaars. Carry your everyday necessities with Dezso's Tulum Navy Wave Pouch. Head to the beach with this fab eco-friendly Beach Candy Sarong. Double it up as a beach towel!
