Apoyolodge - Other Hotel Masaya - Nicaragua

Apoyo Lodge is a large 3500sq ft private villa nestled in an ecological nature reserve on the shores of Lake Apoyo. Apoyo Lodge is situated off the beaten path and boasts no neighbors for miles besides the local howler monkeys regularly heard in the trees. Guests staying at the lodge have a chance to experience true solitude. All though secluded, colonial Granada and Masaya are only a half hour drive away.

There are 6 bedrooms and 7 washrooms and the lodge is constructed from local Nicaraguan materials. The ceilings and beams through out the lodge are composed of guadua bamboo, all windows and doors are royal cedar and the floors are laid with traditional wood-fired clay tiles.
There is a spacious fully equipped open aired kitchen, dining and living area with direct views of lush greenery and the lake. Colorful swinging hammock chairs hang suspended from arches in the living area.
There are two expansive suites equipped with cedar french doors that lead to a private balcony meant to relax and admire the views of the laguna.
Due to the breezy air flowing off the laguna, no air-conditioning is needed. Instead all rooms contain ceiling and floor fans and also have their own private, modern american standardized washrooms.

The property has an abundance of lime, papaya, mango, banana trees and coconut palms as well as other fruits indigenous to Nicaragua. There is also a variety of flora and fauna and bird-watching has become a favorite pass time at the lodge.

Outside the villa, the lake is only a stone's throw away and there are many hammocks scattered all around the property.

For those looking to 'catch some rays' or simply laze there is a floating dock as well as inner-tubes. If you'd like to go a little further there are paddle-boards, a paddle-boat and a small sailboat. Snorkels and fishing rods are also available.

There is a large spacious outdoor bar complete with hammocks, concrete ping-pong table, refrigerator, charcoal BBQ and pizza oven. This Rancho is ideal for group settings and parties of any kind.

Private and group yoga classes as well as massage are available upon request.

Day Excursions are available to surrounding Masaya Volcano & Market as well as Granada/Isletas & Mombacho. The town of Pueblos Blanchos or the White Towns can be reached from the lodge by hiking to the top of the laguna. Hiking trails are located in all directions of the property and Victor, the local caretaker is a great guide. Local restaurants serving typical Nicaraguan dishes are within walking distance as well. If you'd like to take panoramic pictures of the laguna from a bird's eye view, transport can be arranged to a personal favorite local restaurant 'El Tigre'.

As mentioned the lodge is slightly off the beaten path and if renting a vehicle, 4x4 is required. Otherwise the lodge can arrange transportation from anywhere in Nicaragua.

The owners are a young Canadian couple that live in their own home on the property, away from the villa and are always accessible in case assistance is needed. They are able to arrange grocery services, transportation, day-excursions or any other plausible request.

There is always 24/hr security and maid service available.
