Reconnect and refocus on what really matters, in destinations that are in total harmony with the natural environment.


Akwa-Resorts offers two destinations for those travelers looking to experience some authentic time-out in the heart of Costa Rica and in beautiful Switzerland. Guests are encouraged to slow down, take it easy, and to do just a little less. The simple pleasures of Costa Rica and Switzerland’s life are at the core of the Akwa-Resorts experience.

Enjoy the many secluded corners of the properties where you can relax with a good book or watch the sunset over the hills. Savor a glass of Brunello under the shade of a Wisteria laden pergola or simply spend a lazy day under the gentle warmth of the Costa Rica sun.​

We invite our guests to slow down, to take it easy, and to do less but discover more whilst deeply enjoying every single minute. Everything a guest might need can be found in our resorts.  

Stay, play and create those perfect moments that become lasting memories.

Akwa Resorts Santa Teresa Retreat


Sitting on the western edge of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica, Santa Teresa is a tiny beach village that draws in a lot of surfers and beach bodies. It is the perfect mix of laid-back beach town and Costa Rican charm. It’s developed enough to have plenty of food options and plenty of activities, but remote enough that the beach was not packed with tourists and people trying to sell you things. The beach is long and beautiful with white sands. Like many beaches in Costa Rica, there are no mega-hotels or resorts lining the beach, there is just pure, natural beauty. The waves are great for surfing. The surrounding jungle is beautiful and teems with wildlife. You’ll likely hear howler monkeys howling in the distance. Go to Santa Teresa and you will undoubtedly enjoy the Pura Vida. BOOK A ROOM

Akwa Villa Santiago



Sitting on the western edge of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica, Santiago is located 1km from Santa Teresa. Santiago experience – we came here because we fell in love with surfing and Hermosa beach and you will do the same. The beaches of Santa Teresa are consistently the best beaches year after year and Hermosa is the hidden gem. Consistent waves, wide sandy beach and (so far) never too many people around. We work with the best surf instructors in Santa Teresa. For the more adventurous surfer, there are several beaches and breaks for you to check out and enjoy along the peninsula too. The little bay of Hermosa is growing and we now have some excellent dining options within walking distance. Koji’s world-class sushi for dinners and newly opened Colour cafe by chef Sebastian Reigner for breakfasts and lunches too. There is also a great Tapas spot and Pranamar restaurant and yoga.




Akwa-resorts guests will have access to a full range of dedicated services, including concierge service and personal assistants available on request. ​The concept goes way beyond offering a resort in a desirable postcode. Akwa Resorts does better than that by providing a concierge service.
