Reviewed 17 May 2015

We stayed in an ocean view luxury Suite. Aqua Wellness is very beautiful and peaceful. The rooms are spread out over a hillside looking out at Redonda Bay and the grounds are very tropical. There's a nice private beach with many lounge chairs and hammocks. The restaurant serves fresh local food. The resort is small and remote which is good...

Hola David, We are delighted that you enjoyed what's best about Aqua -- its remote and beautiful beach setting, its tree houses, good food and welcoming staff. As you pointed out, we have our challenges. Aqua is far away from stores and "civilization," so if you have a kitchen in your tree house, it's a good idea to stock up...

This review is long overdue. My boyfriend and I traveled to Nicaragua with another couple in August of 2012. None of us had ever stayed there before and they believed we were staying in a two bedroom unit. Unfortunately, it was a one bedroom with a futon in the common area downstairs. We travel together a lot and are good...

To be perfectly honest, this was not a trip I had anywhere in the vicinity of my travel radar. My wife and I had been looking for a winter or early-spring getaway for a couple months and had only come across one option that piqued our interest. Then, I got an email from a hotel deal website I subscribe to...

Dear RMIGolfer, Wow, what a detailed review -- and so positive! I see that you have reviewed lots of hotels and resorts on TripAdvisor, so we're doubly happy that you enjoyed Aqua! What made me most proud in your review was that you praised individual staff members by name, pointing out how warm, welcoming and dutiful they were -- from...

The service at this property is just wonderful! From booking to check out, I was thoroughly impressed by the friendly and professional service we experienced from every member of staff. Upon arriving at our ocean view treehouse studio, we were immediately struck by the sound of waves crashing against the beach - just perfect! The room is petite but very...

As a volunteer in Granada, I wanted a quiet restful spot to decompress and Aqua Wellness was a perfect place. No tv, no loud music, no hustle and bustle. Each room is built high among treetops,with beautiful teak furniture, plunge pool, and WiFi if you want to connect. I awoke at sunrise to the chirping of birds and howling of...

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
