zen hotel and sushi bar:.
“Zen is balance. Zen is completion”, says its owner. And it is indeed. Its welcoming hosts are a great time to spend having a quiet night of conversations in between shots of the special homemade delicious, and some a little dangerous, tropical liquors. And fun nights of live music playing on the terrace next to the river and the bar. It’s an amazing place to start or to end the night, or actually, stay the whole night. Because it’s a shushi bar you can also enjoy the delicacies from the artist of sushi from Arigato Sushi.
Even with the restaurant and bar, the place has a special harmony that includes hotel guests, the Pacific Ocean, the river, and the restaurant and bar customers, and friends.
The hotel has 6 rooms, they all have a view of Rio El Tunco and El Sunzalito beachbreak. All its guests have access to a full equipped kitchen. And all rooms have a private bathroom and A/C. There are yoga classes every morning from the overlooking the ocean and the river terrace.
The place’s phylosophy is to work in a cooperative way, as a community in touch with the blessing of being surrounded by powerful forces of nature.
The idea of Francisco Pla started in the basemant of her mother’s house on August 8th 2013. During that time he had a partner and they opened because they wanted to offer a delivery service that promoted a different experience in the saturated sushi market in the country.
Rented his first local in El Tunco along with another friend in 2015, they shared the place and split it in 2, one was Pla’s sushi and the other one was a typical meat restaurant called “La Guanaca” was a big jump for him since it was a time in which restaruant businesses at the beach were not doing well at all, it was very slow, specially because the location he chosen was far away from all the other restaurants and bars, but he decided to adventure himself into the ride, and by 2016 he had the option to move to a more beneficial location that is in the heart of El Tunco town, where all the bars and restaurants nearby the beach start.
His mission is to take advantage of all the fresh products he can get while living at the beach, so it’s all about the different kind of fishes that are taken out of the ocean daily, all the fresh vegetables, to create the most original sushi rolls that the Pacific Coast of El Salvador has ever seen before.
His vision is to make of Arigato a recognized brand, not only in El Tunco, but nation wide through commitment and hard work.
