Rancho Santana, a picturesque seaside residential and resort destination situated on 2,700 acres along Nicaragua’s Southwest Pacific coast, has announced that it will open The Inn at Rancho Santana in March of this year.
The two-story retreat will house just 17 guestrooms, each with views of the Pacific Ocean. The guestrooms and suites, ranging in size from 350-850 square feet, feature wood work created on-site by the ranch’s very own Wood Shop, hand painted tile, locally sourced paintings and pottery.
The Inn’s architectural design, interiors, and landscaping all drew inspiration from their coastal locale. Those arriving to The Inn will travel along a dirt road that ultimately leads to the inn’s stables, organic garden and hiking trails, creating a surprising but satisfying contrast where luxury meets adventure.
Upon arrival, guests will pass through an elegant recessed brick archway into open-air courtyard which also serves as the lobby.
Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the unique isthmus climate with steady coastal breezes and year-round warm ocean waters, perfect for splashing about on one of the five distinctive beaches that are located along the resort’s two miles of shoreline. Guests will also have access to world-class surfing, mountain biking, guided ecology walks, kayaking and horseback riding, with plenty of free time for sunbathing and stargazing.
The restaurant, La Finca y El Mar, under the guidance of Executive Chef Rich Dacosta, will feature seasonal ingredient-focused menus, which are sourced almost exclusively through the Rancho Santana sustainable farm and livestock programs, as well as drawing upon ingredients produced by neighboring farmers and fisherman.
The inn also features its own art gallery, courtyard, café, and lounge.
Introductory rates at The Inn at Rancho Santana start at $249 – $349 per night.
