Mandla is an exclusive oceanfront property, offering guests unrivaled service and luxury on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. This is the place to come for ultimate privacy, and to enjoy all the adventures this beautiful country has to offer.


Located only an hour out of Managua, we are the closest luxury oceanfront option to the airport, offering private transfers 24/7 from door to our door.

Owner/ Operators Damian & Katie come with over 19 years combined experience working on Super yachts around the world; hosting, entertaining and feeding the worlds' most elite clients.

Bringing their exceptionally high level of client service with them, you can expect to receive attention to detail unlike anywhere else in Nicaragua.

Recently completed in 2019, Mandla was designed to offer multi level areas to relax, enjoy the outdoors, experience nature and sleep in absolute comfort in our ocean view, air conditioned rooms.


Having personally sourced the best local guides, we offer a variety of different activities - from surfing and horse riding, to volcano hikes and the infamous "sand boarding".

Owner Katie heads up the kitchen, creating mouthwatering bespoke menus with clients ahead of arrival to ensure maximum food satisfaction! With over 11 years experience cheffing all over the world, she describes her favorite style of cuisine as rustic Mediterranean - using personally sourced fresh and seasonal produce to create a stunning array of dishes to be enjoyed in our open air rancho overlooking the great Pacific Ocean.

Our beachfront swim up pool bar is a firm favorite, with guests being able to choose from a variety of handmade cocktails. Created using only the freshest ingredients, including homemade simple syrups and infused licors.


When the swell is pumping, choose to surf our firing home break "Pistols" located right in front of us, or head out with Co-Owner Damian in our Surf/ Adventure boat to visit nearby other nearby points and reefs. When swell is small he loads up the boat with beers and wake-boarding equipment, and when its windy we offer kiteboarding excursions to experienced kite boarders.

Some say we are adventure specialists. We can't disagree.

"Ultimately our goal is to provide an unforgettable, invigorating experience, enjoying the natural beauty of El Transito in comfortable, beautifully designed, beachfront accommodation."


- Katie & Damian
