Other resort amenities include Spa Mukul, with six private spa-treatment casitas concept and treatments were created by Angel Vezina Stewart; a beach club featuring dining and lounge areas and a swimming pool; and the 18-hole Guacalito Golf Course designed by David McLay Kidd.
The Palapa at Mukul is cool: instead of cutting down trees to build it, they shipped in these nanciton pilars left over from Hurricane Mitch in 1998 that were just sitting as debris since on the Atlantic side. Paul Duesing is of course responsible for the stunning decor. A Mexican architect created the first oval-shaped palapa in Central America. There's 128 lil baskets up there, all hand-woven by local artisans of Nicaragua!
