Aqua’s tree houses serve two purposes - The first is environmental. By building above the forest floor, we minimized the resort’s impact on the delicate ecosystem of the jungle forest. The second purpose you’ll understand especially at sunset, while you lounge around your private deck, or soak in your plunge pool while watching the sun sink into Pacific.

Perched up high in your tree house, with views of the ocean and green-forested hills, you are truly immersed in nature. You will fall asleep to the tranquil waves of the ocean and wake up to the sounds of the tropics - more birds than you can imagine and perhaps a family of howler monkeys having breakfast in the trees surrounding you. Get your cameras ready.

After receiving her medical degree from New York University School of Medicine and completing her internship at NYU Medical Center, Dr. Nikki chose to veer from the western medicine model to focus on wellness, prevention, and happiness via a modern healing approach by integrating all elements of the being: mind, body, and spirit.

You will be served healthy meals throughout the retreat. Your meals are included in the price. Aqua’s open-air beachfront restaurant serves healthy cuisine with contemporary flair and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. They source hormone-free meats and organic produce from local farmers, and each morning select their fish from the daily catch of fishermen in Gigante, less than a mile away. The coffee and espresso is made with organic Nicaraguan coffee beans.

Start your day with one a fresh-squeezed tropical juice or smoothie, such as the “Funky Monkey” which is made with orange juice, banana, cashew nuts, and cocoa nibs. The breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus feature American and international dishes, everything from fish tacos and pasta to pad Thai, as well as “typico” Nicaraguan specialties such as ceviche, gallo pinto and churrasco (Nicaraguan BBQ).

The chef is always happy to prepare special vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free dishes upon request.

Boat cruises

Aqua is located on Nicaragua’s dramatic Emerald Coast, where rugged cliffs border unspoiled white sand beaches. You are encouraged to get out onto the open ocean during their stay, so that they can view the spectacular coastline and enjoy sightings of dolphin pods, sea turtles and, in when in season, whale migrations.

A half‐day cruise to “La Ancien,” a rock formation a mile south of Aqua, can be arranged. There is excellent snorkeling; a full‐day cruise to the lively beach town of San Juan del Sur, 12 kilometers south of Aqua; or a two‐hour cruise at sunset, when the sky morphs, as if by magic, from orange to crimson to indigo as the sun sinks into the Pacific.

Book spa treatments

Aqua’s serene, secluded and awe-inspiring forest / ocean-view setting is ideal for guests seeking a wellness vacation, one in which they can enjoy activities that are good for the body and the soul, eat healthily, and return home feeling revitalized. The tree house spa is an essential part of Aqua’s pure wellness in nature focus. The spa features one single and one couples’ treatment room, both with showers, and open-air ocean views that take relaxation to the next level.

Day trips

Aqua offers an array of enjoyable day trips, both on land and by sea. They invite guests to explore nearby eco-sites including Masaya Volcano, Mombacho Volcano Reserve, the Granada Isletas, and Ometepe Island, a UNESCO world biodiversity site. Excursions to these pristine nature reserves include zip-line canopy tours, coffee plantation tours, organic and permaculture farm tours, waterfall hikes, night lava viewing, and horseback riding.

If you would like to get out onto the ocean to fish, explore beaches, or visit villages to the north or the colorful beach town of San Juan Del Sur to the south, there are a number of boat-trip options.

They also offer tours to the Spanish colonial city of Granada, zip-line canopy tours in San Juan del Sur and turtle and dolphin/whale watching out on the water and in La Flor National Pacific Reserve. Excursions in our own special part of Nicaragua include hiking up the ‘Pie de Gigante’ sea cliff for stunning views and an exciting rappelling adventure, as well as mangrove bird watching and traditional fishing instruction.

Fishing trips

Fishing off the coast of Nicaragua is among the best you’ll find for two reasons: commercial fishing in Nicaragua is on a very small scale, which leaves plenty of fish for sports fishermen, and though also small, Nicaragua has a skilled sport‐fishing industry.

They can send you out in a sonar‐equipped, center‐console fishing boat with powerful outboard engines, stocked with cold beer and snacks and manned by a salty captain and fishing guide who are experienced with local types of fish, seasonality, tackle required and where to catch a big one. They are also happy to teach you traditional fishing techniques, such as surf‐casting, hand spearing, lobstering, sardine, and shrimp fishing with small nets and traditional jigging with hand‐rigged Nica fishing boards.

Guests at Aqua have returned triumphantly from their fishing trips with king mackerel, barracuda, red snapper, amberjack, mahi‐mahi, blue‐fin tuna, yellowfin tuna, roosterfish, snook and many other species - all caught in offshore waters. The chef is always happy to cook your catch for your lunch or dinner. If you would like to spend a whole day at sea, a deep‐sea fishing (catch‐and‐release only) for swordfish, marlin, and shark is recommended.

They also can arrange fishing trips to Lake Nicaragua and the Rio San Juan, where you can catch‐and‐release 100‐pound tarpon. You can also enjoy fishing and spear‐fishing right here in Aqua’s Redonda Bay. Guests are welcome to bring any or all of their own gear / tackle for fishing at Aqua Wellness Resort, though this is not required.

Live among the locals

Aqua is proud to partner with Paso Pacifico, a non-profit foundation dedicated to conserving and restoring the natural ecosystem of Nicaragua’s Pacific slope. Together, Aqua and Paso Pacifico are working to preserve Aqua’s natural environment in four areas:

Forests

The dry tropical forest surrounding Aqua has been severely degraded as a result of centuries of selective logging, thus shrinking the habitat of indigenous wildlife. They are collecting seeds of trees that are vital to the wildlife, and propagating them in an on-property nursery. They plan to plant 5,000 trees in the forest, to bolster the habitat for the wildlife, and to offset the resort’s carbon footprint.

Monkeys

As you will see and hear - the trees at Aqua are home to dozens of howler monkeys, a primate thought to have the loudest voice of any mammal its size. The howlers, along with endangered spider monkeys, are integral in seed dispersal and the health of the forest. They are preserving and reforesting the monkeys’ habitat, making certain they have an adequate natural food supply, and monitoring their well-being.

Parrots

Of the many tropical birds that nest at Aqua, the yellow-naped Amazon parrot is among the most beautiful and most endangered. They are monitoring the parrots’ habits, health, and habitat - and placing artificial nests for them in trees out of harms’ way from poachers.

Sea turtles

Aqua’s white-sand beach is an important nesting site for four endangered species of Pacific sea turtles - olive ridely, green, hawksbill, and leatherback. They are tagging and monitoring these turtles to safeguard their nesting sites and to protect them from poaching.

Surfing

Walk, ride, or boat to surf in both directions. Aqua is within a five to 20-minute boat ride from the most famous surf breaks in Nicaragua - home to ISA surfing championships - so it’s great for guests who want to surf during their stay. Aqua is ideal for guests who come to Nicaragua for a laid-back surfing holiday in barefoot luxury comfort.

Surfing in Nicaragua, you won’t need a wetsuit, ever, as the water temperature ranges from 75-82 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year. You can longboard, shortboard, or SUP at any of the breaks, with the biggest swells between May and November, but thanks to the unique-to-Nicaragua Lake Nicaragua effect the beaches near Aqua enjoy 300 days a year of off-shore winds for great surfing, in glassy conditions.

Water sports

Aqua Wellness Resort sits on a white‐sand beach on Redonda Bay, a perfect half‐moon‐shaped cove that is backed by dramatic rock cliffs.

In Spanish, “redonda” means round, and the name comes from the two points of rock that jut into the sea at either end of the bay, creating one of the most protected swimming beaches on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast. In fact, Aqua’s beach was recently named one of the best in Latin America. The beach is superb for body surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, stand‐up paddle boarding, paddle‐board fishing, swimming for all ages, building sand castles or just plain lounging.

Though all beaches in Nicaragua are public, due to its limited accessibility, our beach is de‐facto private. Aqua’s staff keeps it immaculately clean and protects the turtles that come ashore to lay eggs. On a moon‐lit night, there is no better beach for a stroll or a swim, especially on nights when the bioluminescent algae shimmer silver in the water.

Aqua guests are welcome to the available complimentary use of water‐sports gear, including snorkels and fins, kayaks, boogie boards, and stand‐up paddle boards. They also offer instructions in surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and traditional Nicaraguan fishing techniques for an additional charge.

You can book spa treatments for an additional price. Spa treatments range from pedicures, facials and massages, to signature treatments that utilize organic local ingredients. Among the most popular signature treatments at Aqua are:

Organic cacao body polish

A scrub using Nicaraguan cocoa beans, yogurt, and honey, which leaves the skin feeling as soft as silk.

Mombacho massage

Named for one of Nicaragua’s many volcanoes.

Aqua envelopment body treatment

Which uses warm volcanic clay.

Smoothie body polish

A scrub using enzyme-rich tropical fruits.

    "I attended Dr. Nikkis mind, body, and spirit retreat in Ojai and I was just blown away by the experience that Dr. Nikki provided for us. She is really passionate about what she does and genuinely wants to help people live healthier more fulfilling lives. She provides a safe space where you could come and be yourself without any judgment. It doesnt matter what your age is, physical ability, background, if you are shy or very social. She accepts and loves everyone for who they are and makes them feel comfortable. She goes above and beyond to provide the best overall experience for her clients. The Ojai Foundation where most of the retreat took place was absolutely beautiful. It was there where I witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets and had some great experiences that had an immediate effect on my life. On the last day, Dr. Nikki took us to another beautiful location where I continued to connect with nature and with other people. It was hard to leave. After those three days, I felt reborn and re-energized. Im grateful that there is someone out there like Dr. Nikki. I highly, highly recommend everyone to attend one of her retreats so that they could experience what I experienced."

    "My husband and I could not be happier to have been introduced to yoga through Dr. Nikki. Sessions with Nikki are fun yet challenging, and we especially appreciate her attention to detail when it comes to adjusting the body precisely for each pose. She is so knowledgeable - not only about yoga but also about holistic health - and its ultimately inspiring to practice under her guidance. Neither my husband nor I had ever taken a yoga class before meeting with Nikki for privates, but we have instantly become hooked. Simply put, Nikki is the best!"

    "This was a much needed get-away! The surroundings were amazing. The Ojai Foundation is a very beautiful place. The food was all organic, healthy and plant-based, and was very good and a nice change for me. I enjoyed very much all the activities, yoga, art projects, and I loved, loved the sharing circle with the cards. They were inspiring for me. Sharing space with each other individually, and recognizing the beauty and gifts of the other, while receiving positivity and celebrating our own unique gifts! Who knew I was such a funny girl! Thanks! Keep up your excellent and inspiring work Dr. Nikki!"

    "I admit that I was once a Utopia (on Fox) livestream watcher. While watching I saw a kindred spirit in Nikki. I was bummed when I didnt get a chance to head up to the Utopia land before the show was canceled. She mentioned that she would continue Goddess Circle after Utopia ended. I am so pleased that I reached out via social media.As a seasoned circle facilitator, I am grateful for the space Nikkis circle has offered me to relax and grow in a nurturing circle. It has been a long search to find a womens circle I could be a participant in, not lead. I trust her to guide the journey.Nikki creates a warm, loving, inspiring and self-affirming space for women to connect and support each other on our journeys. Thank you! Thank you!Sister in spirit."

    "After being diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, I decided to surround myself with like-minded individuals who shared my passion for healing. I instantly connected with Dr. Nikki and Bhavani. Their joy, laugher and love of community brought together by sustainable local organic food was infectious. I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day deepening my yoga practice, meditating and preparing an amazing farm-to-table meal to share with new friends. I can't wait to do it again!"

    "The workshop with Dr. Nikki Noce was amazing. Most of my aches and pains have disappeared. My energy level is up. I am experiencing a sense of overall well being. All this from a one-day workshop. I cant wait to see what will happen to me after her next workshop. Dr. Nikki, in my opinion, will become one of the most influential doctors in the field of healing. She has already made a positive difference in my life."

    "I attended Dr. Nikkis Spirit Retreat in Tulum last November and had a profound Rejuvenation and Peacefulness experience.I been practicing yoga for the past 2 years and was looking to go back to my regular ashtanga practice by attending a retreat that will motivate me and inspire me after a very difficult year in my life. Thankfully, Nikki not only lived up to but surpassed expectations in every way. There were 4 additional people in my group and I can honestly say everyone expressed the deepest gratitude for having landed there.Nikki is one of the most inspiring people I met in my life, she is truly a beautiful soul! You can really sense the amazing energy that surrounds her, you can see the light in her eyes and how genuine she is and passionate about what she does.This retreat allowed me to open to spaces in me I didnt know existed and I was able to regain my inner power and light that I lost this year. This retreat is a place where everyone is not only welcome but encouraged to come with all of who they are and Nikki was really amazing at providing us with unconditional love, joy and growth opportunity.Nikki combined the spiritual practice with practical, offering tools through the union of mind, body, spirit and heart to become a better person in this world thwarts yourself and others.Nikki is very knowledgeable when it comes to yoga practice, nutrition and healthy lifestyle and she is spreading that knowledge in the world with so much love. I left the week inspired, uplifted and ready to conquer the world and make it a better place! Thank you for your teaching, exercises of the mind, challenging yoga poses and inspiration for me to keep on studying about the wonderful world of yoga, spirituality and mind and body connection!"

    "Getting away and having a moment to breathe and forget about the everyday was exactly what I needed to clear my mind and get inspired. This was my second retreat with Dr. Nikki. She is a great teacher, she really practices what she teaches. She is kind, warm hearted and really cares about everyone on the retreat. Its a beautiful experience to share and connect with others.The Tulum retreat taught me how to be focused in my mind, how to eat healthy meals, and improved my yoga abilities. This retreat put me back on track and focused to live a healthier life. Dr Nikki inspired me to live a healthy lifestyle and to lead by example. It was an overall outstanding experience on all levels."
