I think I might have set my expectations too high for this place based on their marketing. We had a nice time, but nothing really wowed me. We stayed in an ocean view room with a plunge pool, and while I was expecting a long walk to our room from the beach, it was really a hike. I like staying...

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to write a review, Erika S. We are glad you enjoyed yourself but are disappointed to know you weren't completely satisfied with your stay. Our resort is built in to an amphitheater setting and many guests consider the stairs part of the wellness experience. But, whenever space is available, we...

We rented a private house at Aqua overlooking the bay. Most of the rental houses are on a wooded hillside overlooking the small bay with a beach. The houses are beautifully built, but all are on the hillside, so expect lot's of stairs. The beach is fairly small. While all beaches in Nicaragua are public, there is no easy access...

Aqua is stunning. Beautifully situated in a private cove on Playa Redonda, the views are breathtaking. We were staying nearby but visited Aqua on my birthday after hearing that the signature cacoa scrub & massage at the spa were not to be missed. It's true! You can lightly hear the waves below you as you have your treatment and the...

Staying at Aqua was a world-class experience: terrific rooms, excellent service, wonderful food- there really is not a single thing I would change about Aqua. The location is stunning (Playa Redonda) and the thought that went into designing and constructing the resort into the hillside is remarkable. Do yourself a favor and go! There are plenty of activities/amenities (highly recommend...

The Aqua team provide excellent service! Stayed in Yuca TH with amazing views of the bay and coastline. The cuisine was fresh, local seafood with many options. Loved the Fish Carpaccio and brick oven pizzas. Aqua arranged surf lessons with transportation to and from. Coming back with the kids in March.

My husband and I felt like we hit the jackpot with our stay in the Sapote Luxury suite. While it was high on the hill and a bit of climb up from the beach and restaurant, the view and the comfort of our two treehouses were amazing.

We loved #AquaWellnessResort. We stayed in a beach suite, enjoyed the Chef's fine cuisine, soaked up some rays, dipped in the pools, took walks and saw the turtles come ashore to lay eggs. We took in as much in as possible and vow to return to spend a longer visit because our stay was too short. The architecture and building...

Just one night, that's all it took. And I was hooked. Our room had - and really it appeared as if all the rooms have - a incredible view.

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
