All of the rooms at Hush have spectacular ocean and jungle views. They are spacious, well-ventilated, and equipped with an en suite bathroom, wardrobe, and fans. There are only two rooms with air conditioning because Hush is an eco-hotel running mostly on solar energy. There is good natural airflow and fans that will keep you nice and cool, along with the comfortable mattresses and the sound of the waves below. You will fall into a deep sleep not long after your head touches the pillow.

The shared Garden dorm has amazing jungle views and if you are lucky, you can spot monkeys in the trees from your window. The dorm has six double beds and a bathroom en-suite.

The Poolside rooms each have two queen beds and stunning views of the infinity pool and the ocean. This room can be booked as a private or a double shared with one other person.

The Yoga rooms on the second floor have different options. One of them has two queen beds and this one can be booked as a private or a double room. The other two Yoga rooms have either a kingsize bed and a single or three single beds. One of these has an AC. This room can be booked as a private room with a king bed or as a triple room. All Yoga rooms have a hammock on the patio in front and amazing ocean views.

The Cloud 9 room is a breathtaking king suite. You will wake up with 180-degree ocean views from your bed. The suite has its own floor which can be closed off for others. It has a king bed, a sofa, flat screen TV, AC and its own gym. You will feel as if you’re in the clouds.


Surrounded by the sounds of the jungle, you will wake up to birds singing and the waves crashing on the shore. There will be a light fruity bite ready for you if you feel like eating something before the yoga practice starts.

After a nice energizing practice, a clearing of the mind with meditation and a delicious breakfast you’ll be set for the day. The retreat will find a nice balance between excursions and activities, while giving you the freedom to unwind and take time for yourself to to; surf, explore the wild beaches on horseback, read in a hammock, get a massage or spend in the time in any way you wish. In Playa Maderas, it’s possible for everyone to find the perfect way to unwind.

After a day spent enjoying paradise, you’ll start to slow things down with a calming evening yoga class on the roof, in which you can marvel at the beautiful clouds transforming during the magical ocean sunsets. With the rise of the moon and the fall of darkness, the stars start to reveal themselves and invite you to gaze upon them as you awaken from savasana.

You’ll then gather together after class to have a Satya circle to share your thoughts with each other, before tucking into another delicious meal for dinner. During the week, you’ll also have some chilled after dinner activities such as a movie and bonfire night that you’re welcome to join. By the end of each day, you will sleep like a baby once your head hits the pillow, feeling a sense of bliss and with each day a step towards inner peace.

As well as being a land of great lakes and volcanos, Nicaragua is also famous for its white sand beaches and turquoise waters, which play host to consistent off shore surf year round. It's stunning coastline is lined with lush green jungle, that comes alive in the rainy season (May-November) when all the trees are at their most vibrant.

The retreat location, Hush Maderas, is a boutique hotel that sits perched on a headland overlooking two bays, where you can watch the waves roll in and the sea and sky turn to gold every night for sunset.

Playa Maderas is an hidden gem of a beach, located just a 15-minute drive from the charming town of San Juan Del Sur in the south of Nicaragua.

Surround yourself with nature in it's most raw form. Spotting wales from the yoga deck, turtles while in the sea, or monkeys and sloths when you look up into the trees are part of life here.
