Buddha Roc Beach Resort is a turnkey amenity-rich ocean view compound located between two popular beaches: Playa Marsella and Playa Maderas, in San Juan Del Sur. An incredibly unique property, Buddha Roc sits on two lots measuring over a half acre on an elevated bluff which provides jaw-dropping 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and valley below. It is the highest point in the town.
No expense was spared to turn the original 3 story property into the current immense tropical luxury resort known as Buddha Roc. Firstly, the original property was fully upgraded with modern appliances, flat-screen TVs, A/C, new roofing, and extensive infrastructure improvements including multiple septic tanks, generator hookups, new transformers, hot water heaters, water storage tanks, new electrical wiring, and plumbing. The deck was expanded and a large infinity pool with a rock waterfall and enormous propane fire bowl torches were added to make you feel at the edge of the world as you look out to the open Pacific Ocean. There are engineered foundations built to be able to build a second-floor deck by the pool and expand the dining area or create another enclosed room. Permits were arranged to add a 4th-floor sky suite to the building. Security cameras, lighting, and hi-speed wi-fi cover the entire gated property
Secondly, utilizing their culinary background, the owners installed an industrial-grade kitchen, outdoor/indoor bar, and reception area. The expanded covered deck doubles as an outdoor dining area. Additionally, there is a generously sized indoor dining area with custom tropical bamboo décor, driftwood chandeliers, and A/C units for private events. As a result, a full-blown restaurant can run out of the property if desired.
Thirdly, a neighboring lot was purchased to add three new structures for additional accommodations. Massive retention walls and engineered foundations were installed to allow all structures to be built another 2 stories high along with architectural/ engineering plans. Infrastructure and engineering plans are already in place to build 3 more buildings for fast expansion. The lush tropical setting has mature landscaping, winding pathways, and a variety of decks and terraces which allow guests to have ample personal space or yoga decks.
The property is comprised of four distinct structures:
Pura Vista Luxury Villa is a three-story building with 4 bedrooms | 5.5 bathrooms measuring approximately 17,222 sq ft. Each level has ocean and garden views which can be enjoyed from the oversized wraparound terraces. The expansive exterior area with hammocks and patio furniture is ideal for taking in the captivating views, watching sunsets, or just relaxing! Each floor is independent of the other, allowing for three distinct rental areas. For instance, one of the three floors have their own fully equipped dedicated kitchens and one floor has the infrastructure in place to easily add another full kitchen. In addition to an outdoor grill and smoker for legendary BBQs with friends and family.
Paduma Tropica Lux Bungalow and Kassapa Tropical Lux Bungalow are two individual 1 bedroom | 1 bath partial ocean view units with their own private decks protruding into the jungle perched above the forest canopy. The bungalows feature floor to ceiling glass sliding doors and oversized windows with blackout curtains as well as A/C & hot water heaters. Carefully designed and curated, the units feature beautiful details such as colorful local tiles throughout, hand-carved stone sinks, seashell baseboards, and barn doors, custom wood furniture, artisan glass bottle shower walls – to name a few. The intimate large bathrooms have his and her sinks as well as two shower heads, in addition to outdoor rainwater showers. Outfitted with kitchenettes, mini-fridges, and French-presses, these units leave little to be desired.
Furthermore, each bungalow is outfitted with a covered rooftop deck which is perfect for relaxing or activities like yoga. Most importantly each bungalow was built with a structural foundation, plumbing, septic, and electrical strong enough to accommodate multiple levels. That is to say, the rooftop decks can be converted into additional closed units if desired for future expansion.
Club House Enclave has 4 bedrooms | 3 bathrooms under massive loft ceilings with one of a kind wall murals, custom wood furniture, local handmade fixtures, and colorful tiles throughout. These rooms are currently geared towards shared occupancy with a mix of loft and low beds. Similar to other units, the bathrooms are outfitted with rain showerheads and live edge wood sink basins. All units have hot water, A/C, ceiling fans, and generator hookups. There is a large rooftop viewing platform that can be used to take in the views or for your morning exercises!
Whether used as a hotel/resort, private family compound, or a retreat center; your only limitation is your imagination. Likewise, there is ample room to expand and the heavy lifting has been done with existing infrastructure which was built to support further development. All surveys, permits, architectural, plumbing, electric, septic and engineering plans for past and future plans are in order. The property manager was the construction project manager and is an added asset to the property. The property currently manages the water and well for the homes in the area.
