boutique hotel & retreat
Enjoy stunning views, and the sound of waves crashing on the shore from architecturally designed casitas with private decks overlooking the ocean, and rooms nestled poolside overlooking the Verdad gardens and the sea. Beautifully landscaped pathways link each of our accommodations to our gorgeous open-air yoga and fitness studio, our pool and honor bar with expansive views of the ocean and surrounding tropical forest, and our comfortable lounge area where you’ll find ample space to relax, play a board game, or enjoy a sunset cocktail.
We built Verdad Nicaragua with an eye toward creating spaces that allow you to take in the stunning beauty of this extraordinary hillside in laid-back luxury. You can expect all the comfort, quality and excellence of a high-end resort, but without formality. Because we are a small boutique hotel with just five casitas and two rooms, you are able to personally connect with us during your stay. Verdad is your extraordinary home away from home, a hidden gem on the untouched coast of the Southern Pacific.
Because we care deeply about the environmental impact we make running our hotel, Verdad is also eco-conscious and off the grid. Our drinking water is carbon filtered and our electricity is 100% solar powered.
Verdad is nestled on a hillside overlooking the secluded beach of Playa Escameca Grande, on Nicaragua's Emerald Coast. We have a consistent year-round surf break, shaded lounge chairs, hammocks and a beach bar/restaurant, where you can enjoy Nica-style food and drinks while you wiggle your toes in the sand. We are about 20 minutes south of San Juan del Sur, a small port town and international surfing destination, rich in nightlife, beachfront dining and shops.
One of the first things you will notice when you arrive at Verdad Nicaragua is our area’s striking beauty. The surrounding tropical forest boasts a colorful array of flora, fauna and wildlife, and our hillside perch affords you striking, expansive views across our valley and out to the wide open sea. We share this magical setting with howler monkeys, lizards of all shapes and sizes, four species of sea turtles (that often come lay eggs on our beach) and a diverse population of birds, creating an animal watchers’ paradise.
We invite you to come experience the endless beauty and laidback luxury that is
