Within Aqua we have 24 Treehouse Villas comprising a total of 47 rooms which in turn are categorized as either Luxury Suites or Treehouse Studios. Our Treehouse Villas as well as our furniture were all handmade by local Nicaraguan crews using only in-country resources and sustainable local hardwoods. As the resort is connected by a network of stairs and walkways, our friendly staff at Aqua will take your luggage to and from your personal Treehouse.
The entire structure of each villa is accessed by a large outdoor deck and private entrances. View options correspond with price and range from Beachfront, Ocean View, and Forest view.
Treehouse Luxury Suites come with full kitchen, King-sized bed, air conditioning, living area (some living areas have an additional futon), and optional private plunge pool. These Luxury Suites can accommodate up to 3 people; 2 in the king-sized bed and 1 on the futon (there is no air-conditioning downstairs in the futon area).
Treehouse Studios come with 1 Queen-sized bed (4 units have 2 Twin-sized beds), wine cooler or mini fridge, air conditioning, and full bathroom. Sharing the treehouse studio is the most economical price option for any retreat.

109 WORLD “We just got back from Nicaragua from our first social mission trip as an organization. We were partnering with Aqua Wellness Resort to make this happen and we are so happy we did so. It is so inspiring to be working with a resort that wants to give back to their local community and shares the same values and visions for creating positive impact. Everything went super well. Coming to Nicaragua to do a mission like this was absolutely amazing and we were overwhelmed by the welcome we got from the locals and we felt safe. The beauty of the country is mind-blowing! Thank you so much Aqua and until next time.” – Olivia Rothschild, 109 World Director
THE YOGA ELEMENT “We had a fabulous week. All of our needs were met with exceptional service, and several of our guests already inquired about whether we’ll return next year. We had a great time, and the team at Aqua endeavored to make sure that we wanted for nothing – true VIP status. What a treat!” – Cecily Milne, Toronto (Instructor)
DEL SOL YOGA “First off our clients had a wonderful time and are already wanting to know the dates for next year. This is largely due to the beautiful facility, the excellent service at every turn and the magic that is Nicaragua.” – Sifu Thomas Leverett, Austin (Instructor)
