Located in the beautifully wild landscape of Nicaragua’s Pacific “Emerald Coast” with a private white-sand beach, our 44 luxurious treehouse villas dot Aqua’s forested hillside, which overlooks a private, white sandy beach. Some of the Tree House accommodations feature kitchens, and incredible plunge pools that make it difficult to even consider leaving the deck. 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. Wellness services such as spa treatments, yoga, and meditation, coupled with fresh and tasty international and Nicaraguan fare in our restaurant and beach bar, create an enjoyable “barefoot luxury” experience for guests. Eco-friendly practices are well ingrained in the Aqua experience, and for those who appreciate and support sustainable, environmentally friendly travel, this is where you want to book. Aqua surpasses the standards and services of other luxury resorts while operating in an environmentally responsible manner. The staff is accommodating and friendly. While Aqua’s peaceful seclusion is perfect for an off-the-grid escape, the resort offers adventure as well: You can hike a 300-foot cliff and rappel down, or learn to surf on neighboring Playa Gigante, both within walking distance of Aqua. If you want to venture out for a day, we can arrange for a boat excursion to one of Nicaragua’s best surf breaks for surfing, or to its deep-sea waters for fishing. Perhaps a round of golf, horseback riding, exploring Nicaragua’s famous lakes and volcanoes, or its colorful colonial city of Granada, just an hour and a half away. When you return to the resort just in time to enjoy a spectacular ocean sunset, you’ll discover why Aqua is Central America’s premier luxury resort.

We enjoyed our stay at the resort. Only complaint I would have is that our pool was not cleaned well. We requested to Have it cleaned and they did, but it still looked dark. Other than that everything was perfect.

It was an amazing experience for a personal retreat, especially during these times. The cleanness of the room was impeccable, and the service was super friendly and attentive. The only feedback I have is related to the raccoon visit we had at night which ate all of our food! I believe the locking system for the kitchen area needs to be improved.

Nicaragua is a hidden gem for its with its volcanoes, jungles, mountains and beaches. Aqua takes advantage of this natural wonderland by incorporating the landscape into its design in stunning ways. The treehouse rooms are unique and beautifully built and decorated. Warm showers (not always easy to find in Nicaragua), picturesque views of the ocean and delicious food and drinks to enjoy. Another great perk is same-day laundry service. And how can you not enjoy watching the howler monkeys swing from the trees surrounding your room? But above all, the staff is incredibly warm and attentive. They WANT to give their best - and they do! I proposed to my fiancee here, and we will be back to say vows. I cannot say this loud enough - skip Mexico this year and come enjoy the richness of the landscape and the people of Nicaragua. You won't be disappointed.
