FrontRunners: Mukul

<< Back to Robb Report, December 2013

Nicaragua is better known for its fine rum and cigars than for its rarefied resorts. But with the February opening of Mukul (www.mukulresort.com), the Central American country has found a worthy complement to its natural beauty. The brainchild of Carlos Pellas—owner of Nicaragua’s Flor de Caña rum—the resort sits on a glorious stretch of beach bordered by jungle-covered promontories. A David McLay Kidd golf course cuts through the forest behind the hotel, which hosts guests in 23 tree house–like bohios, 12 beach villas, and the Pellas family’s six-bedroom home. All units offer easy access to Mukul’s four miles of Pacific coastline—home to world-class surf breaks—as well as to a network of hiking trails. After a day of adventure, enjoy Nicaragua’s finest selections in the resort’s rum and cigar rooms.
