Located deep in the lush Nicaraguan jungle that surrounds a lake that has formed over the many years in a dormant volcano, it's not difficult to understand why this place is so peaceful and relaxing. This was the final stop on a yoga retreat that I was on. There is a large platform that allows you to do your practice...

Just back from 10 days at Apoyo Lodge- would have written sooner but we came home to a 4 day snow storm and it took another day or two for the anti-depression meds to kick in. We are a couple in early 50’s, closing in on mid-fifties I guess pretty quickly, and I am definitely at the age where I...

I don’t even know where to begin. I found Apoyo Lodge searching for yoga in Nicaragua. After emailing with Sasha, I could tell I was in for a treat of a retreat! She customized a 2 day vegan yoga retreat for my birthday. It was memorable from beginning to end. A driver was arranged to pick us up in Granada....

Myself and 7 friends made the trek from Leon to Apoyo Lodge this past weekend. We had a great time! The Lagoon was gorgeous, better than we could have imagined with crystal clear water. We rented three rooms for a very reasonable price. One of the rooms was a suite with a balcony that overlooked the entire lagoon. Very relaxing...

Apoyo Lodge, not to be confused with Apoyo Resort, is quiet, relaxed and peaceful. If you need a minute to disconnect on a hammock or your own lanai, enjoy the view, natural sounds--this is it. The owners are laid back. It's a quaint place, so not too many travelers at a time. Rooms are comfortable, large, and with free reign...

This was my second time staying at Apoyo Lodge and it certainly won't be the last. Laguna de Apoyo is gorgeous, but your experience at the lake will be exponentially enhanced by staying at Apoyo Lodge. It is run by an awesome couple from Canada who really make you feel at home. The property is right on the lake, is...

I'm very sorry to hear that you didn't get all that you wanted out of your trip to the lodge but I believe that a lot of your stress could have been reduced by verbally communicating your problems with me during your time here as I was unaware of many of them until now. I can see how the two...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Apoyo Lodge specialises in booking villa rentals and group wellness retreats. Apoyo Lodge is ideal for large groups traveling together and retreats of any kind who are interested in pursuing a purposeful blend of yoga, conscious eating, natural health, spirituality and healing while in Nicaragua. The lodge offers guests the perfect environment; a unique, secluded and natural setting where they are able to discover and harness this mindful lifestyle in peace and solitude. Some guests describe the lodge as the perfect place to unplug from the outside world. A place where they can liberate themselves from the daily distractions of city life and connect to their highest selves in the natural world. All meals at the lodge are a mix or raw and cooked plant-based whole foods (vegan, free of gluten, refined sugars and oils) with strong emphasis on sourcing seasonal, local and organic produce whenever available. Meals are exclusive to guests staying at Apoyo Lodge. The lodge does not have a restaurant and walk-ins are not accepted. THE LODGE The lodge sits on over an acre of property deep within the tropical nature reserve of Laguna de Apoyo. Just footsteps away from the lodge are the pristine healing waters of Apoyo Lagoon. Apoyo Lodge boasts 6 bedrooms and 6.5 Bathrooms and can comfortably sleep 12 - 18 people during villa rentals and 14 during wellness retreats at double and triple occupancy. There are two expansive suites equipped with queen beds and french doors that lead to a private yoga balcony where guests can relax and admire the views of the laguna. Amenities at the lodge include a spacious fully equipped open-air kitchen, dining and living area with direct views of lush greenery and the lake. Colorful swinging hammock chairs hang suspended from arches in the living area. All rooms are equipped with hot water, natural products made locally on Little Corn Island, ceiling and floor fans and have their own private modern American standardized washrooms.

LODGE DETAILS Apoyo Lodge is a large 3500sq ft vacation rental nestled in a protected ecological dry forest nature reserve on the shores of Lake Apoyo. Unlike other homes in the laguna, Apoyo Lodge is hidden and has no neighbors. Although secluded, colonial Granada and Masaya are only a half hour drive away. The lodge is constructed from local Nicaraguan materials; the ceilings and beams through out the lodge are composed of guadua bamboo, all windows and doors are royal cedar and the floors are laid with traditional wood-fired clay tiles. There is a spacious fully equipped open aired kitchen, dining and living area with direct views of lush greenery and the lake. Colorful swinging hammock chairs hang suspended from arches in the living area. There are two expansive suites equipped with cedar french doors that lead to a private balcony meant to relax and admire the views of the laguna. Due to the breezy air flowing off the laguna, no air-conditioning is needed. Instead all rooms contain ceiling and floor fans and also have their own private, modern american standardized washrooms. LAKE & RANCHO Outside the lodge the lake is only a stone's throw away and there are many hammocks scattered all around the property. For those looking to 'catch some rays' or simply laze there are inner-tubes for floating. If you'd like to go a little further there is a paddle-boat and a small sailboat. There is a large spacious outdoor bar complete with hammocks, cement ping-pong table, refrigerator, charcoal BBQ and pizza oven. Hiking trails are located in all directions of the property. ... more   less
