I was at Aqua for 12 days in May as a solo female traveller. Exceptional location and amenities. You hear the ocean waves clearly from everywhere on the resort. Rooms are private and clean - the housekeeper even scrubbed my shoes clean after a hike in the mud! I would strongly urge you to choose a room with a private...

The hotel provides an interesting offer for those how love nature and fitness. The rooms are distributed within the forest and high above the ground which makes it definitely not for handicapped of persons or...

An amazing class held by an amazing teacher. Mandy Dawn Genier used a gentle voice as she confidently guided the class through a sensible sequence. Her cues were clear and easy to follow. Mandy offered alternatives and modifications so full participation was possible for students of all levels. A deep level of connection was made as Mandy offered skilled hands-on...

We stayed at Aqua for 6 days during our honeymoon. The service was outstanding and we got to know a lot of the workers from doing a lot of the excursions. We booked a luxury suite and had a kitchen that we cooked breakfast and dinner in. The drinks and food at the resort are very overpriced so we brought...

We stayed at Aqua 2 years ago with our kids, and this last trip, just my mom and I came alone to relax and do yoga. We stayed in a tree house. It is small, but very unique, beautiful and quiet (except howler monkeys....but its really neat to be that close to monkeys!). It rained the first couple of days...

This truly is a beautiful rustic place with a magnificent beach on its own cove. Well appointed tree house style villas with plunge pools. Its a great wooded hillside community with lots hiking and steps. Restaurant and food was very wonderful, especially the fish.

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...

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
