Aqua Wellness Resort is a new eco-luxe development perched on a forested hillside overlooking a crescent beach on Nicaragua’s unspoiled Pacific Riviera coast. The develop- ment offers eco-friendly treetop villas built from sustainable hardwoods that range in size from 1,150 to 1,500 square feet.
Aqua villas feature fine contemporary fur- nishings, state-of-the-art appliances, and spa- cious terraces with ocean and/or forest views. Most villas have multiple bedrooms, plunge pools, and separate kitchen/dining bungalows. Alhough rooms are air conditioned, Aqua offers other cooling options—ceiling fans and ocean breezes—that are more earth-friendly.
Owners have access to Aqua’s yoga pavilion and open-air full-service restaurant overlooking the beach. In addition to yoga and spa treat- ments, activities include kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, surfing, and hiking to the nearby village of Gigante, as well as adventure activities such as volcano climbing and zip-lining. Addition- ally, Aqua’s chef serves healthful cuisine that features fresh local seafood and produce.
Aqua Wellness Resort villas range in price from $309,000 to $398,000. Owners can enjoy them for 109 days a year and rent them out the rest of the time through Aqua’s management program. aquanicaragua.com
