This resort seems to assume that luxury is created by attaching hefty price tags to everything. But as we all know, this requires more: Top quality, attention to details, outstanding service... Don't get me wrong, the beach is great, the treehouses are nice. But the prices for housing, food and drinks promise a level of luxury that is not being...

We returned to Aqua Wellness for three nights with our three teenagers. Having stayed as a couple last year, we were eager to share with our kids the great setting, and warmth of this special resort. We stayed in a luxury suite with the kids downstairs and adults in the air conditioned room upstairs. It worked out well as long...

(CONs) We stayed at Aqua after 6 days of hiking/backpacking in Granada and Ometepe. Our first impression was bad - When we arrived our room wasn't ready even though it was late in the afternoon and they even had their driver pick us up. We had a pool full of bees and they handed us bug spray. And the treehouse...

Although we have been several times in Aqua Wellness Resort on this occasion the reservation service has disappointed us. We made a reservation and upon arriving we found a poorly maintained suite with a pool smaller than promised and no breakfast included. It really was the opposite of our expectations.

We recently celebrated my birthday at Aqua Wellness. I had done weeks of research and even found them two years ago and finally made the decision to choose this facility for our "eco" adventure!! We are older with numerous health issues. Keeping that in mind we chose the more expensive beach front villa luxury suite to be nearer the restaurant...

I organized a 6 day yoga retreat in March with a group of 15 and the experience was really one to remember. I can't say enough about this resort and the staff. They were warm and beyond accommodating. The resort location is special and unique situated in a cove one with the natural beauty of the area. I miss the...

I spent 5 days/nights at Aqua Wellness and after the first day I knew I would return to this resort in the future! I stayed in a tree house forest view room and absolutely loved the tranquility and cleanliness. The beds are very comfortable and I slept so well every night. It's rare to find a place that is luxurious,...

We stayed at the very end of the dry season. There were fires in the hillsides. Despite good AC, we could not escape the smoke in our room and even at the shore. It made my eyes sting. Thankfully, the smoke cleared after 2 days. We then found a scorpion in our daughter's bed and another in my husband's clothing....

Our family and I stayed in this property during the month of February, and we had an amazing time. Everything from the room, the service, the beach etc was great. Perfect place to just unwind, relax and immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of this country. For full details about our stay and pictures check my review on zeebalife dotcom

This was our last stop in our honeymoon. And what a place to conclude the honeymoon! Despite its very luxurious feel, they maintain it very simple, and a feel of an ecoLodge.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aqua is a luxurious eco- and wellness resort with a private white-sand beach on Nicaragua's picturesque Emerald Coast. Guest accommodations are set in beautifully crafted Tree Houses on a wooded hillside overlooking the ocean. All have decks; some have full kitchens and outdoor plunge pools. Guests enjoy yoga classes, spa treatments and hiking, and water activities including stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling, kayaking, surfing and fishing. Our guides take guests for excursions to nearby colonial cities, parks and volcanoes. Aqua's open-air bar/lounge and restaurant, with its wood-burning pizza oven and menu of healthy international cuisine made with local ingredients, are directly adjacent to the beach. 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. ... more   less
