Nica Buddha Roc

Welcome to Buddha Roc, perched 200 feet above Playa Marsella on top of a cliff between Playa Marsella and Playa Maderas. This tropical paradise is close enough to the ocean to hear the soothing sounds of the surf below and high enough to offer spectacular panoramic 360 degree views of up to 40 miles:including of the entire majestic Marsella valley, surrounding hillsides, and even Costa Rica. The vistas from this resort are simply breathtaking and must be seen to be believed! Over $500,000 of upgrades, renovations and construction were completed in November 2018 to ensure that the guest experience combines the tropical resort like feel with every amenity and comfort one could want.

Tropical lush landscaping and foliage cascades around the property through winding paths taking you to 3 yoga decks with swinging chairs and hammocks and one look-out point with the highest views in Playa Marsella. An infinite pool cascades over a waterfall melting into the panoramic ocean views.

There are wrap-around covered decks on all 3 sides of the Villa Pura Vista Hacienda with hammocks, lounge furniture and colorful potted plants. If you plan on cooking or allowing us to provide a cook for you, you will not be disappointed with 2 full kitchens on the 1st and 2nd floor as well as an outdoor propane grill and 2 wood smokers.

Two individual private luxuriously appointed high-ceiling bungalows are perched within the jungle canopy with unobstructed lush valley views stretching all the way to Costa Rica.

The Club House Enclave shares 4 treehouse-by-the-ocean inspired high-ceiling rooms with tree trunk lofts, seashell baseboards and Zen inspired hand painted wall murals with a shared kitchen and a rooftop yoga deck and oversized game area.

There’s no place like Buddha Roc at night with 4 twelve foot torches creating a spectacular primitive affect while you lounge around the propane fire pit poolside while the soft glow of the LED pool lights illuminate the waterfall and change slowly the pool color in a relaxing mantra. The handmade rustic modern live edge wood furniture is comfortable and unique providing a perfect spot to sip a Toña Beer or a tropically blended drink as you gaze at the constellations and shooting stars unhindered by the city lights.

We are located within a 15 minute drive to the bustling vibrant beach city of San Juan Del Sur where there’s plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife to keep you busy and entertained. Come and go any time. Our property is fenced with a security guard 24/7. There is plenty of parking on property and we can arrange transportation between airports and Buddha Roc.
