Fancy a Robinson Crusoe experience minus the hunger, the despair and the ugly beard? Calala Island is the ideal place for you. It’s an exclusive private island retreat in the undiscovered Nicaraguan Caribbean. You can stay in one of the suites but you can also book the entire island!
There are no more than four suites on the idyllic island. The thatch-roofed beachfront ‘villas’ stand on stilts over white sands and are styled after traditional Caribbean palapas. With open ocean views in front and palm forest behind, each one is completely private. The suites are tastefully decorated, in harmony with the surroundings.
You can book the whole island (sleeps 10 people) privately. That’s 45,000 square metres just for you. There is a friendly staff of 22 on the grounds to ensure an unforgettable stay. This is set out to be a true holiday!
Eat, swim, sleep, repeat
Spend your days on Calala Island relaxing and enjoying the breahtaking nature. You can walk around on the beach, swim in one of the two lovely pools (one of which is a splendid infinity pool), enjoy a massage in one of the private pavilions, go on a fishing trip, snorkel or paddle board and so much more.
You can go relax-mode all the way, but you could also be active during your holiday if you prefer as there are many activities to choose from. Tailor-made experiences, from dining to activities, are no exception here. Everything (almost) is possible in the exclusive hideaway.
And of course, there is the food. Dining on the Island is a gastronomic experience unmatched elsewhere in the Caribbean. Daily-changing menus using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients are served in a variety of locations around the Island. Chef de cuisine, Lorne Emerson, is constantly pushing the boundaries to deliver a sensational dining experience. Emerson cooked in award-winning and Michelin-starred restaurants throughout France for a decade.
Small Luxury Hotels of the World
Calala Island joined the ranks of SLH at the end of 2018 so it’s still a relatively new addition in the trusted collection of luxury boutique hotels. High-profile and celebrity guests looking for an unspoiled luxury island hideaway have already found their way to Calala Island.
The luxury resort has received numerous awards and is known to be one of the most exclusive private islands in the world. It is even possible to request no-fly zones over the island if needed.
So the number 2 of our ‘Hotels to sleep in before you die’ is very different than the number 1, isn’t it? Both so beautiful though, don’t you agree?! Are you an island-person? Would you like to stay on Calala Island?
