Aqua Wellness Resort in Tola, Nicaragua
The tree houses at Aqua Wellness Resort serve two purposes. The first, obviously, is to inspire plenty of “I can’t believe we’re doing this!” exclamations, which you’ll catch yourself uttering as you sip champagne in an aerial plunge pool as the sun sinks into Redondo Bay. The other reason for tree living is environmental: By building above the forest floor, Aqua is minimizing its impact on a delicate ecosystem. Get up close and personal with nature – after all, it’s in your living room – and let the yoga classes, organic spa treatments, and healing hillside location work their magic.
Make friends with the neighboring families of howler monkeys who will be your complimentary alarm clock. Watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee as the creatures catch up on the night’s gossip. Spot a bright red tree frog dodge the gaze of a woodpecker. Walk along the shores of a private cove and keep an eye out for tracks from nesting sea turtles. Paddle through mangrove forests. Feast on Nicaraguan churrasco with a glass of fresh-squeezed tamarind, dragon fruit and watermelon juice.

Reviews for Aqua Wellness Resort
Just to be clear, I am not the target customer for this Resort even though I am love nature and enjoy the outdoors a lot. The hotel provides an interesting offer for those how love nature and fitness. The rooms are distributed within the forest and high above the ground which makes it definitely not for handicapped of persons or persons with special mobility needs. From my personal view I loved the small pool beside the room with outstanding views of the forest and the ocean it gives the sense of seclusion. On the downsides there are a few, first the physical effort you must go through to go from the restaurant (which is at beach level) to your room. You will have to climb a gargantuan number of steps therefore I will not recommend this Resort for anyone with a heart condition. Second, we could not access room service and therefore could not get beverages or beer while enjoying the pool, and third but not least; and can dig the howling monkeys, birds, the sound of waves and wilderness but cannot stand bugs, of all kinds, inside my room and bed while sleeping. They were crawling over me and my wife at all times and therefore did not enjoy my overnight sleep. This is the sole reason why I cannot give a good rating.
An amazing class held by an amazing teacher. Mandy Dawn Genier used a gentle voice as she confidently guided the class through a sensible sequence. Her cues were clear and easy to follow. Mandy offered alternatives and modifications so full participation was possible for students of all levels. A deep level of connection was made as Mandy offered skilled hands-on assists. It was clear that Mandy is a passionate teacher who loves what she does. I have taught and practiced yoga for 15 years and I can honestly say that Mandy's authenticity added to my Nicaraguan yoga experience. Namaste

We stayed at Aqua for 6 days during our honeymoon. The service was outstanding and we got to know a lot of the workers from doing a lot of the excursions. We booked a luxury suite and had a kitchen that we cooked breakfast and dinner in. The drinks and food at the resort are very overpriced so we brought our own from the local markets instead. We loved having use of the snorkel gear, kayaks and paddle boards. The free yoga classes overlooking the Pacific Ocean were unforgettable. We also used the spa services and loved that as well. We will definitely be coming back to Aqua again! Thanks so much for an amazing honeymoon!

We stayed at Aqua 2 years ago with our kids, and this last trip, just my mom and I came alone to relax and do yoga. We stayed in a tree house. It is small, but very unique, beautiful and quiet (except howler monkeys....but its really neat to be that close to monkeys!). It rained the first couple of days we were there, but it was still very relaxing. We had an ocean view tree house and the view is breathtaking. I love going to sleep to the sound of crashing waves. The yoga is AMAZING....the yoga platform is the most beautiful place to do yoga ever. And the teachers 2 years ago and this last trip were all fantastic. The restaurant is expensive and they don't always have everything on the menu, but we didn't really care. We thought the food was great, really healthy (which we prefer) and worth it. We did go into Gigante (a 20 minute walk) 2 days for a cheap lunch and to explore. We both got massages one day too....very expensive, but some of the best massages we've ever had! You will walk a lot of stairs, so for people who aren't in good physical condition to walk up and down MANY stairs, get a beach front tree house to avoid stairs all the time. However, we are active and actually enjoyed all the walking and stairs....it was perfect for us. Beautiful sunsets, by the way! I'll be back to Aqua. Love it.
This truly is a beautiful rustic place with a magnificent beach on its own cove. Well appointed tree house style villas with plunge pools. Its a great wooded hillside community with lots hiking and steps. Restaurant and food was very wonderful, especially the fish.
