The resort is structured around surfing, so if you are not planning to participate your options are a more limited since it is in the middle of nowhere. That being said, the staff does their best to accommodate all needs, surfing or otherwise, especially considering that there is literally nothing around you. The food is spectacular, absolutely top-notch and readily... More

To begin, I took this trip solo, based on the previous solo-traveler reviews and was NOT disappointed! Here's why: #1. My trip began with American Airlines failing to get my luggage onto my connecting flight from Miami to Managua, and without avail, Casey made sure my luggage, in a rainstorm, got to me that very same night, calling in a...

If you love to surf, enjoy eating good food, surfing epic waves and hanging out with beautiful amazing people in a remote part of the world, you must go here. Great hotel. Great food. Great Surf. Great people. Amazing time. Simple.

The staff gets overwhelmed at dinner with no vacancy and additional dinner guests. We waited over 30 minutes just to get menus one night. There are three dogs on the property that are annoying. They bark a lot and one of them bit a guest. These are probably things that are an exception to the norm, but I expected more... More

Toured Soma and shared an afternoon beverage with Casey who described Soma, it's genesis and philosophy. Authentic design that perfectly mirrors the hotels intentions, I found the setting inspired. I am glad my son who was a guest this past New Years directed me to Soma. I would love to return as a guest.

I came here with a close friend for three nights and we had a wonderful stay. I arrived a bit under the weather on my birthday, but Casey and her staff still made me feel well-celebrated and took us to a great yoga class that day. Surfing and boxing with Bill was a lot of fun, and one of my... More

This place was amazing. Bill and Casey went out of their way to get us there with no issues and while we were there, every experience we had was positive. Nicaragua is gorgeous and I'm so grateful to Casey, Bill, and their entire staff for everything. This is destination is a must. Stay at Soma your entire trip!! You won't... More

Spent a week surfing, reading, relaxing, boxing ,yoga, massage, and swimming. Gourmet cuisine and wonderful dinner conversation with this niche hotel's eclectic global clientele around the dinner table. I'm afraid to talk about SOMA because this jewel of paradise might be overrun with seekers. It seems the El Nino current has extended the dry season in Pacific Nicaragua so there... More

After 3 nights in Granada, it was a fun change to be in Popoyo. The Soma property is beautiful, and Bill made us feel right at home. The food is cooked by chefs in-house and was excellent. It is worth nothing that this is not a resort on the beach where you can just walk to go surfing or to... More

I had a great time at Soma! I spent three nights there in June of 2014 and had a great time taking surfing lessons from Bill - and got pretty good by the end! I also enjoyed horseback riding, swimming in the pool, and the local community tour. I highly recommend exploring the local community and going on a tour.... More
