This was my 3rd visit to Aqua and I absolutely loved it. The staff were right there when I needed them, subtly providing assistance in just the right way. Rooms are gorgeously done. Opening the curtain to the view of the quiet bay below is such a great way to start a day of optimism and thankfulness. It is an... More

I have to say Aqua is a beautiful place! The Redonda Bay has perfect blue, warm and clear waters, the views and sunsets are spectacular and the villas are well planned to be surrounded by nature. I was mostly impressed by the warmth of the staff, who genuinely welcomed us upon arrival and were always available for help. Aqua does... More

Aqua Wellness Resort is a world of it's one. Located directly on a beautiful private sandy crescent shaped bay, it's perfect for swimming, snorkeling or fishing. There's also no shortage of excellent surf breaks in the close proximity. The houses are literally in the tree tops with incredible views - some even have their own swimming pools. The service at...

Our family enjoyed two nights at Aqua in February. We stayed in one of the luxury suites located high on the bluff and absolutely loved it. Aqua provides quality and tastefully designed cabins harmoniously set in nature and overlooking stunning Redonda Bay. Each afternoon we were visited by a troupe of howler monkeys just above our villa. We found Aqua's... More

My partner and I walked out of our bungalow to find a family of holler monkeys hanging out (the canopy of the dry rain forest shading our private pool) above our heads. A few meters away Redonda bay ebbed and flowed into the intimate cove that abuts the hotel. This is place is breathtaking. The sounds of the bay, the... More

Gorgeous. Breathtaking. Cozy. Amazing. Just visited Aqua for the second time and loved it just as much or more than the first. This place is the perfect paradise and getaway. The beach is unreal and perfect for swimming. We spent the day wading out into the crystal clear shallow waters with our toddler followed by snorkeling around the reef. Aqua... More

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year and after reading some of the reviews, we were compelled to add our own as it seems like we stayed at a totally different resort to some people! The setting is gorgeous, the tree house design set into the side of the hill is wonderful. Nice rooms and a lovely beach that... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay at Aqua. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our stunning setting, beautiful Tree Houses and lovely beach, but we are sorry that you found service off the mark during our busy holiday season. Many of our staff are locals, in keeping with our commitment to... More

Just came back from a short visit to Aqua. And I am already regretting coming back. This place sucks you in. The suites are very personal. The decoration / set up is one of the most thoughtful I have ever seen. Sipping coffee in the porch in the morning is priceless. Highlight: Sleeping and waking up to the breeze in... More

A fantastic top end resort that charges top end prices. The room was fantastic with good quality bedding, towels etc. the resort is made up of several luxury suites and tree houses that are next to each other . We had a luxury suite and it came with a plunge pool. Unfortunately our neighbours decided that our pool was theirs.... More

I can't really complain about this resort, on our second night they gave us an upgrade to a luxury suite with a plunge pool, it was nice to hop in the pool to cool off and watch the monkeys jumping through the trees. I loved the yoga platform, the view is amazing. We also tried out the paddle boarding available.... More
