Breathtaking views from every room

Hotel SelvAzul, Laguna de Apoyo

Welcome to Hotel SelvAzul

Located on the beachfront clear waters of Laguna de Apoyo crater lake, our boutique hotel resort offers luxurious tropical accommodations nestled in the midst of one of Nicaragua’s most scenic national reserves.

Why SelvAzul?

If it's luxury in paradise you're after, then look no further than us...

Private Luxury Suites

Each one of our 10 suites offers guests complete privacy, splendid views and a range of luxury facilities such as a private pool. From 'Africa' to 'Thai' to 'Bali', each has been built with a unique theme in mind.

All-day Restaurant to keep hunger at bay

All our guests are invited to dine in our all-day restaurant, serving a buffet breakfast and a range of dishes from traditional Nicaraguan and Latin American to simple and delicious clay-oven cooked pizza.

Well-stocked Bar to quench your thirst

Laguna de Apoyo enjoys approximately 9 months of constant sunshine, so we know how great an ice-cold beer tastes in the heat of the day. Our fridge is always stocked with beers, white wine, soft drinks and mineral water. We also offer red wine and Nicaraguan rum.

An Artist's Touch

All of our uniquely designed suites have been finished with the care and attention to detail you'd expect from a luxury hotel resort. We also have our very own artist whose intricate work is displayed in the hotel and available for purchase.

Splash Around or Go Diving

From kayaking, paddle-boarding and water-biking, to swimming, scuba diving or simply soaking up the sun on our floating island dock, you are far from likely to grow bored of Laguna de Apoyo. If you do, you can always retreat to your luxury cabin...

More than just a lake

As well as water activities, we offer group night-tours of Volcán Masaya, where you can see lava bubbling away inside the crater, and day-tours of nearby Catarina and Masaya, where you can see a panoramic view of the lagoon from above and buy local souvenirs.

Direct Transport

We will happily arrange a private taxi service to either pick you up from or drop you off at Managua airport, Granada or San Jorge.

Join the Family

At SelvAzul we treat our guests like friends while maintaining the service expected from a high-end boutique hotel. We want you to feel welcome, at ease and terribly upset on the day you leave!

How it all started...

After traveling the world for years working as a dive instructor, I returned to Nicaragua driven by the desire to share the beauty of my home country in a comfortable setting with the added taste and feel of the eclectic cultures I’d encountered. Inspired by the incredible beauty of Laguna de Apoyo and its surrounding, verdant forests, we began construction of our lodges with the ambition to preserve the natural beauty of this national reserve and instill in our guests a real sense of Nicaraguan culture and hospitality. Thus was born the hotel de blue forest, SelvAzul.
