Nayara Springs

Last updated: 24 December, 2023

Luxurious four-poster beds sitting on polished hard-wood floors scattered with expensive kilims, huge marble bathrooms with walk-in al fresco showers and geothermal tubs,  hummingbirds flitting through the resort’s extensive, orchid-filled rainforest gardens… no other Arenal 5-star resort offers such a sense of comfortable, intimate seclusion in nature. Or more spectacular volcano views.

Bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling glass walls open onto private plunge pool decks. These are open-air, yet completely shielded from view by extensive greenery – perfect for in-room dining or under-the-stars swimming for two.

The restaurant (sitting over a huge shared pool) is one of the best in the region and there’s a first-class spa (with geothermal treatments and outdoor Jacuzzi pools) set next to a beautiful clear-water mountain river. Adults only.

Surrounding area

The hotel sits in lush jungle gardens in its own rainforest reserve gardens under the hulking cone of Arenal volcano. The resort restaurant is excellent and there are other options in La Fortuna town – a 10-15-minute cab ride away.
