Nicaragua's Newest Eco-Luxury Resort Offers Private Island Intimacy
Introducing Jicaro Island Ecolodge
If an intimate retreat on a private island sounds appealing, where you can feel good about relaxing in a resort that takes sustainability seriously and matches it with the details and level of hospitality expected from a luxury property, let us introduce you to Jicaro Island Ecolodge.
A short boat ride from the colonial town of Granada, Jicaro Island Ecolodge is set in Lake Nicaragua, the largest fresh water lake in Central America. Limited to no more than 20 guests, nine two story private casitas have been hand crafted using indigenous wood, with windowed walls that open up to the lake breezes, and spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The large yoga decks, patios, pool and lounge area offer inspiring views of Mombacho Volcano across Lake Nicaragua. A full service open kitchen and restaurant serves dishes using local ingredients matched with regional recipes. Wellness and relaxation treatments are available upon request.
For those who can bear to leave the island, a signature tour includes a short boat ride across the lake to the foot of the Mombacho Volcano where guests can hike up to hidden hot springs, explore petroglyphs and the Mombacho cloud forests.
Managed by the team at Cayuga Sustainable Hospitality, room rates at Jicaro Island Ecolodge ;start at US$380.00 and include transfers to and from Granada’s Asese Port, as well as all meals. We invite you to be one of the first to experience this remote island gem. If you reserve a three night stay between December 16th 2009 and January 31st 2010, you pay for only two nights, a savings of over 30 per cent.
