The SPA at AQUA - Aqua Nicaragua


Nestled in the upper sanctuary of AQUA’s hilltop resort is your private spa villa. We encourage

all of our guests to experience at least one spa treatment during their stay. Many

share that the spa is a highlight, and we know that you will leave refreshed and excited to

return for your next visit! We also want to make you aware of some of the following details

to help you better prepare:

The entrance to our spa villa is located next to the main central descent (marked by the

large bronze gong that leads down to the beach and restaurant). You will need to proceed

past this area and follow signs marked “Spa Villa”. Once you cross over our hanging canopy

bridge, climb approximately 40 steps up to reach your final destination, where majestic

views and a cool ocean breeze reward your efforts.

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early so that you are able to fill out a brief questionnaire designed

to help us better serve you. The spa questionnaire requests that you list any problem

areas and detail any injuries that you may have. We also ask our guests to use this

form to select the type of pressure they desire for the duration the massage: gentle, medium,

or firm.

Meet Veronica

Veronica is from nearby Playa Gigante and has been with AQUA for over 2 years. Veronica’s

favorite treatment to give guests is the Mombacho massage because the dynamic

and rhythmic movements of this massage effectively “Removes the negative

energy and melts stress away from the body”.

When Veronica isn’t delighting her guests at the spa with her magic touch, you might

catch her relaxing at her home with a favorite book in hand or studying for her degree

in tourism management..

Veronica loves the fresh watermelon at AQUA and, when asked, usually recommends

that her guests experience the almendra (almond) scented oil for their massage.

Cuisine at AQUA

AQUA’s “La Bromelia” restaurant is located beachside and is open from 7:30am-

10pm daily. Follow the stairs down from your villa and turn left once you reach the

beach. Although guests are welcome to linger until 10pm, please arrive before 8pm if

you wish to order a hot dish from the kitchen.

Delicious food is central to the wellness mission of our resort and we are pleased to

offer you a variety of healthful foods and drinks. Side salads and/or vegetables come

with the majority of our main dishes. We also delight guests with our exotic fresh

squeezed and low sugar passion fruit, dragon fruit, watermelon, tamarind, and

jamaica juices.

Locally grown vegetables and hormone free meats are abundant here in Nicaragua

and it is not uncommon to encounter fresh and great tasting fruits and produce in

the markets each morning. AQUA maintains a working relationship with farmers in

the nearby town of Rivas where we source the majority of our food. Also don’t forget

to take a moment to check out our herb garden by reception where we harvest rosemary,

thyme, and lemongrass to accent our cuisine.

La Bromelia serves a mix of American (sandwiches, fajitas, pasta, omelets,), and

“typico” Nicaraguan (churrasco, gallo pinto, curry, ceviche) dishes to suit all tastes.

We are also able to accommodate special vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free dishes

upon request.

Yoga at AQUA

AQUA Wellness Resort is pleased to offer daily yoga to each of our guests free of charge.

and are suitable for all ages and levels. Even if you have never participated in a yoga

class, we encourage you to take the short walk down to our elevated beachside platform

and give it a try. Our yoga instructors work with a wide variety of guest ability levels

every day and easily adapt to the needs of each group.

At AQUA we believe that yoga and fitness classes are vital components to our mission

and desire for guests to “flow into balance” while renewing their body and spirit. Yoga is

a great way to escape the pressures and stresses of daily life as you find tranquility and

peace of mind. Our classes gently provide an excellent core and flexibility workout,

leaving you feeling rejuvenated, healthy, and strong.

Generally our yoga and other wellness classes are held every morning but we encourage

you to check with the front desk when you arrive in order to confirm the schedule for

the week. Our thatched roof hardwood yoga platform is located just past the restaurant

to the left of our mini-bar. Our yoga area also includes 2 changing rooms/bathrooms

and an outdoor shower available for guest use.
