Aqua Wellness Resort is a member of Preferred Boutique and one of the best resorts in Nicaragua. Located in an jungle near the town of Rivas, this 50-room resort has beautiful well appointed luxury treetop rooms and villas built with a dramatic vantage over the bay. The main focus here is wellness and yoga is also part of the experience, but as I only stayed one night, I unfortunately didn’t have a chance to try that. The internet is complimentary and very well works in the rooms as well. My only problem wtih the room was the amount of bugs. The most I have seen in any room world wide, but it’s located right in a jungle so it’s kind of understandable.
The two most important thing in a remotely located resort is the service and food. The food exceeded my expectations by far. High quality ingredients in both breakfast and dinner. Delicious dinner and with fresh catched fish, perfectly prepared and a pleasant surprise as I didn’t expect this level in the middle of nowhere in Nicaragua. Only minus with the restaurant would be that it’s located many steps from the rooms and if you’re in bad shape it can be a quite hard walk back to the room. The service was up to a great standard as well. Very friendly and helpful staff. All from Nicaragua and especially the front desk was really friendly and organized a ride back to Rivas for me. Overall a graet experience in Nicaragua. My stay was short, but it’s easy to see this lodge is up to a great standard and definitely worth a visit when traveling to Nicaragua.
My opinion: Great experience.
