Want to go glamping in Nicaragua? This beautiful lodge is just minutes away from the historic city of Granada, but feels gloriously isolated. That may be because it’s located on its own private island. Take a boat from the mainland and choose from two casitas, a treetop rancho, or a bungalow set in lush vegetation with stunning views of the lake and volcano. The property can be rented in its entirety or as individual units – please inquire for availability.
At BoutiqueHomes, we love adventure – and nothing says adventure like taking a boat out to your own private island. The view at this lovely property is of Lake Nicaragua and the Mombacho volcano, and the soundtrack is made up of birds and the breeze.
The little island sleeps up to 10 guests in five separate accommodations – two casitas, two treetop rooms and a separate bungalow – and features a swimming pool, yoga platform, massage facilities, intimate bar, and restaurant. Furniture and accessories have been handcrafted by local artisans, and the property is staffed by locals, including the chef, who creates unique menus using the best locally-sourced ingredients, many of which come from the island’s gardens.
A great destination for glamping in Nicaragua.
Breakfast is served every morning from 7:30 to 9:30 AM an included in the price of your room. The property has a restaurant, bar, pool and yoga deck. It offers transportation, acttivities and spa services. It is off-grid, with electricity provided by solar power, and uses renewable sources wherever possible.
The island is just minutes away from the bustling, historic city of Granada, which was named by Hernández de Córdoba after the ancient Spanish city of Granada.
It is known for its colonial-era architecture, and bears a resemblance to Antigua in Guatemala. Like Antigua, it sits in the shade of a volcano – in this case, Masaya, Mombacho and Ometepe Island. Unlike Antigua, however, it sits on a lake – Nicaragua.
Sites worth visiting are Parque Central and the private Mi Museo, with its collection of Pre-Columbian ceramics. Activities include hiking, fishing, water sports, horseback riding, dining, shopping and exploration.
Granada, Nicaragua. Nearest airport: Augusto C. Sandino (Managua) International Airport (33km). Boat service from Marina Cocibolca for check-in and check-out is included in your reservation.
