Nicaragua is hot, especially for those who are craving the latest spot for exotic travel. Forget the rustic aesthetic of Tulum or Belize?the travel savvy set has moved on to a remote and intimate resort on the emerald coast of Nicaragua?s south side called the Mukul Luxury Resort & Spa. Set between lush greenery and a stunningly beautiful four-mile stretch of white sandy beach, this secret hideaway?(Mukul means secret in Mayan)?provides plenty of pampering with 23 luxe Bohios or ?tree houses? edging into the rainforest on a steep hillside 300 feet above the breaking surf.
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.
