The lodge forms one element of a 1,800-hectare estate that comprises a nature reserve, a reforestation area and a sustainable tree farming project.
Morgan's has a rustic chic feel to it and overlooks a private bay with a beautiful sandy beach.
The private bungalows in which rooms are housed are connected to the main lodge by a 110-metre suspension bridge across a forested canyon. Each bungalow has a private deck and some even have a tree growing through the roof... by design, rather than through lack of maintenance.
Guests can enjoy guided nature tours of the tropical dry forest, which is home to species such as howler monkeys, sloths, white tipped deer and a wide variety of bird and insect life, while the beach is a nesting ground for sea turtles. You can also learn about reforestation, and contribute by planting a tree of your own. Other activities include kayaking in the mangroves, fishing trips with local fishermen, horse riding, mountain biking, snorkelling and night walks in the forest. Surfing and diving are also available locally.
Much of the food served at Morgan's Rock - from fruit and veg to cheese, lamb and even sugar - is produced on the hacienda's farm, which guests are welcome to visit. The freshest locally caught fish also features strongly on the menu.
Various day trips are offered from Morgan's, including to the colonial town of Granada, the Masaya Volcano National Park, and boat trips to the islands on Lake Nicaragua. Alternatively you can just relax at the lodge and enjoy the pool, the beach or a massage.
Why we love it
The bungalows all face west to take advantage of the sunsets over the ocean.
