Announcing the Opening of The Inn at Rancho Santana in March 2015

The Inn at Rancho Santana Logo

Rancho Santana, the picturesque seaside residential and resort destination which sits on 2,700 acres of Nicaragua’s Southwest Pacific coast, announced today the opening of The Inn at Rancho Santana in March 2015.

Prior to the decision to build The Inn, travelers eager to visit “Las Cinco Playas” had their choice of private ocean view homes, garden view casitas or ocean front villas. While the community continues to add luxury designer homes to its inviting rental pool every year, the new 17-room retreat promises a totally unique experience for guests of the property. And coincidentally, Rancho Santana will celebrate 17 years this month.

Slated to be the final phase of the compelling clubhouse opened in 2012, The Inn is tucked intimately into the hub of all “the ranch” has to offer including renowned farm-to-table restaurant La Finca y el Mar. Guests’ playful side will also feast on an extensive list of amenities and activities offered through the Intelity in-room iPad concierge program and mobile app. But when playtime draws to a close, they’ll find retiring to The Inn both pleasantly intimate and effortlessly indulgent.

Conceived as a stylish hideaway within the larger ranch, it is rustic but elegant. It is rugged but romantic. It is sophisticated but cool. While today’s travelers live in a world of peek-a-boo showers and moody lobby music, Rancho Santana, Altevers Associates Architecture, and Altevers International Interior Design instead opted to imagine something more meaningful. Simply put by Rancho Santana CEO Matt Turner, “If a boutique hotel is a weekend fling—this is true and lasting love. The real thing.”

Announcing the Opening of Galeria Rancho Santana

On March 30, Galeria Rancho Santana will open its doors within The Inn at Rancho Santana.  Central American Modernism has long been overlooked not because of a lack of talent, but rather a lack of platform from which to reach people.  Galeria Rancho Santana, curated by Ford Fine Art, plans to play a large part in changing that for the art world.

A Unique Location

Tucked between the vast Pacific and immense Lake Nicaragua, Rancho Santana has the distinction of being one of the only isthmuses on the entire Pacific Ocean. An isthmus is defined as a strip of land that is bordered on both sides by water, yet connected on each end by land. This rare geographical phenomenon gives the Ranch nearly constant breezes.

These breezes are an enjoyment all their own, but also create some of the world’s most vertical waves, providing both visual drama as well as world-class surfing.
