Hotel Description

Here’s a factoid that might come as a surprise: second only to Costa Rica, Nicaragua is, according to a Global Peace Index study, the second safest country in Central America. As a place better known for a 20th century full of revolutions, counter-revolutions, and geopolitical scandal, Nicaragua has, over the past few years, become a remarkably friendly place, and indeed a rather hot ticket for those of us with an ear to the ground for the up-and-coming-est new eco-destinations. Sure, you’ll win some travel cred for heading to Nicaragua in these early days of its resurgence, but the real rewards are the stunning, little-trod beaches, laid-back fishing villages with more pescadores than peddlers, and the sort of bang-for-buck that can only last so long in a place as inherently vacation-worthy as this one.

The hotel is bound to be memorable as well. Aqua Wellness is a treehouse colony, its elevated villas split into as many as three bedrooms, each one a sort of contemporary-rustic luxury suite, all local hardwoods and fine linens. Not many rooms, in Nicaragua or elsewhere, have anything to match these villas’ decks, surrounded by treetop greenery on a hillside facing out to sea.

And if the view isn’t immersive enough, you’re welcome to descend — Aqua’s activities include yoga on the beach, private surf instruction, jungle tours and other such modern hardships. You’ll look forward to locally sourced meals prepared by chef Ben Slow — not a pseudonym, so far as we can tell — and at day’s end you’ll likely find yourself at the beachside “Retox” bar, giving yourself a reason to do it all over again the next day.

How to get there:

Aqua Wellness Resort is located 150km (2h-2h30min) from the Managua Airport. Transfers can be organized for US$110 for up to 6 guests. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
