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. Rooms are unbelievable, and the views are fantastic. It is especially fun if you have a small Infinity attached pool. The water or just wonderful and I have...

I husband and I did a tour of Nicaragua in March, and Aqua was our second stop. We found the resort very quiet. In fact, it couldn't have been half full. We had a very large 2-story house for any kitchen. It was beautiful. ((The resort had run a special in November offering half-price so we splurged for the larger...

My wife and I spent the second half of our 10th wedding anniversary at Aqua. On balance, we were satisfied with the experience and hopefully would like to return. While there were many unique, remarkable highs of the experience including views, accommodations, friendly staff (mostly), the resort appears to be still working on providing top notch customer service one would...

I traveled solo as a nonSpanish speaking female, and was welcomed like I was family. Surfing with Emir, my surf guide,...

I did not stay at the Aqua resort, however I stayed at one of the privately owned houses in the same Redonda Bay development, just steps away from the resort. Beach: The beach is located in a small cove and it is a small beach but I must say that though it's small, it is excellent and pristine. You could...

Aqua Wellness is a lovely resort nestled into the hillside abutting Playa Rondona--5 min from the small fishing village of Gigante and a beach Playa Gigante. ( where there are a few moderate restaurants) .The beaches have beautiful views and beautiful sand. There are few people so lots of space and quiet. The lodgings are a series of beautiful wooden...

If you are overweight or obese forget about this place, because there is tons of talking up and down stairs. Beautiful location, kindof an anti-social and pinky-up vibe, though, with lots of privacy, as other guests didn't seem to engage one another much, which I acknowledge is the experience some want. Only one restaurant, which is expensive on par with...

From the moment we booked at Aqua Resort, we had supreme customer service through and through. I travel a lot, in many different types of hotels (airbnb, farmhouses, bbs, 5 star hotels, etc) and the customer service here is tops. The tree-houses are all very lovely, with gorgeous views in their own right. We had a Forest View at first,...

Nicaragua is what Costa Rica was many years ago - beautiful and unspoiled! Can't say enough good things about this resort - from the location, to the delicious food, to the gorgeous views, to the beautiful beach and to the service.

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
