Aqua Wellness Resort is a family of tree houses situated in a natural lush tropical forest within a private Central American beach cove on Nicaragua’s Pacific ‘Emerald Coast’, just north of Costa Rica. Aqua is only two-hours from Nicaragua’s International MGA airport by car.
We stayed in a beautiful private villa equipped with a studio layout of amenities including a private pool, balcony, and kitchen. Also, the villa boasted a breathtaking ocean view upon sunrise every morning from the bed which also allowed us to enjoy the sounds of the ocean waves at all times of the day and night.
In this peaceful reserve, without the interruption of television and/or technology we were surrounded by nature and wildlife constantly.
The resort offers five star Spa services (so relaxing we forgot to take pictures!), yoga packages and guided meditation. Our villa was a whooping 185 steps (uphill) from the beach so we definitely had our daily exercise. However, the yoga sessions were unreliable -so much so that our yoga instructor didn't show up to our session or respond to our messages after initially booking a time/date/pace. The resort did apologize and made-up for it by offering us additional spa services on the house. Further, they explained that this particular Yoga instructor was a private independent contractor and not directly associated with the resort. Later that day we coincidentally had the opportunity to watch another instructor practice sheet yoga on the beach.
We stayed at the resort for 5-nights and left refreshed, rejuvenated, relaxed and ready to take on the next phase of life. We would definitely recommend this resort for those who enjoy being in nature. I hope that I have the opportunity to visit Nicaragua and the Aqua Wellness Resort again.
