Located in the beautifully wild landscape of Nicaragua’s Pacific “Emerald Coast” with a private white-sand beach, our 44 luxurious treehouse villas dot Aqua’s forested hillside, which overlooks a private, white sandy beach. Some of the Tree House accommodations feature kitchens, and incredible plunge pools that make it difficult to even consider leaving the deck. The lush forest that envelops Aqua is alive with spider and howler monkeys, and a wide variety of colorful tropical birds. Aqua is the perfect spot for a destination wedding, a honeymoon, an active family vacation -- or a serene getaway where you can enjoy nature and one of the most idyllic beaches in Nicaragua. Wellness services such as spa treatments, yoga, and meditation, coupled with fresh and tasty international and Nicaraguan fare in our restaurant and beach bar, create an enjoyable “barefoot luxury” experience for guests. Eco-friendly practices are well ingrained in the Aqua experience, and for those who appreciate and support sustainable, environmentally friendly travel, this is where you want to book. Aqua surpasses the standards and services of other luxury resorts while operating in an environmentally responsible manner. The staff is accommodating and friendly. While Aqua’s peaceful seclusion is perfect for an off-the-grid escape, the resort offers adventure as well: You can hike a 300-foot cliff and rappel down, or learn to surf on neighboring Playa Gigante, both within walking distance of Aqua. If you want to venture out for a day, we can arrange for a boat excursion to one of Nicaragua’s best surf breaks for surfing, or to its deep-sea waters for fishing. Perhaps a round of golf, horseback riding, exploring Nicaragua’s famous lakes and volcanoes, or its colorful colonial city of Granada, just an hour and a half away. When you return to the resort just in time to enjoy a spectacular ocean sunset, you’ll discover why Aqua is Central America’s premier luxury resort.

This resort is unbelievable, the beach is incredible the rooms were amazing! Waking up to the sounds of the beach and looking out of your room to a beautiful view. The monkeys come so close to your room is such an amazing sight to see. I’ve been here twice and I fall more in love every time. The workers are so nice and helpful with anything you need. It is so private and quite I love to just come and lay on the beach or in the plunge pool in complete relaxation. If you love to be in nature and just relax this is the place for you!!! This is a most if you ever visit Nicaragua!

Stayed with my family and highly recommend this place! First we entered through a security gate 😓 and saw that this was secured for tourist 😃👏🏼 It has a private beach , clean rooms , and relax environment. Lots of stairs so be prepare to walk but not bad (good exercise) unless you have issue with legs. Beach is good just be careful with some areas that have rocks. Great staff , speak English , enjoy it if you are in Nicaragua!

I had never traveled to Nicaragua so I did not know what to expect. We arrived at night to Aqua Oceanfront. We rented a treehouse at the top of the hill on the property. When we woke up, my friends and I were rewarded with a specular view of the ocean. The accommodations were fantastic, there were very clean and well appointed. The units we rented featured a living room and a full bath on the first floor, a king bed and a full bath on the second floor, with decks on the first and second floors. There was a separate kitchen with an additional bedroom under the kitchen. The first day we did a guided hike and walked to the nearby fishing village. We also did an exursion to the Island of Ometempe located on Lake Nicaragua. Our tour guide on the excurion was very knowledgable and his english was excellent. We walked several times to the fishing village nearby, but we had all our meals either at the restaurant or at the beach bar on the property. The food was always fresh and the service was friendly. The staff at the resort were wonderful, hardworking and aimed to please. The beach was protected by a cove, it's beautiful and seems to be only used by guests of the resort. We visted Nicaragua during the windy season so I did not use a kayak or a paddleboard, but my friends did. The water was refreshing, but not cold. The monkeys at the resort were fun to watch up in the treetops. We booked massages and facials at the spa and they were top notch. The sunsets were spectacular and we made sure we watched them every night of our trip. Visit Nicaragua! It's a wonderful country, my friends and I felt very safe and welcome in this beautiful land.

Our most incredible travel experience in a long time. Gorgeous,Clean, Eco-inspired private tree top villas where exotic wildlife abounds. Super friendly staff! Last night: -A “World class” music group playing romantic music under the stars while we dined on Delicious, fresh local seafood and tropical 🏝 drinks. Saw baby turtles scurrying out of the sand to the ocean. Slept like a baby. This morning: - a family of monkeys 🐒 resting in the trees outside our villa., while we enjoyed tasty organic fruits and coffee. Food and spa services priced excellent and our dollar stretched well here. Using a credit card makes it easy to not bother changing currency. Excuse my pictures as they don’t really show how beautiful this resort is! Peace and well wishes to our friends back home in a snow storm. 🌞
