Rancho Santana is a world-class resort and residential community located on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. It boasts 2,700 acres of rolling hills and two miles of rocky and dramatic shore, broken up by five distinct beaches nestled in their own hideaways. Make the Ranch your home, visit for a stellar vacation, or host a special event.
Announcing the Opening of The Inn at Rancho Santana in March 2015
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.”
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.
Rancho Santana provides both resort amenities for vacationers and special group occasions as well as residential options for those seeking a second home in the sun and/or investing in emerging markets. Visitors will enjoy stunning ocean, mountain, and valley views from countless spots.
The residential component of the project is dispersed throughout the various sections of the property which have been strategically plotted for maximum scenery and privacy.
Our restaurant sources its food from its own multi-acre organic garden as well as the neighboring ocean. Its name is La Finca y El Mar (The Farm and the Sea) and it strives to serve only ingredients locally grown on our own Rancho (or formerly swimming nearby!).
