Located approximately three hours from the capital of San Jose, Nayara Springs sits in seclusion just outside the town of La Fortuna, in the foothills of the Arenal Volcano. It has been voted best resort in Central and South America by Conde Nast Traveler and it's easy to see why.
Hidden among the tropical forest, the 50 private villas feature their own private plunge pool fed by natural mineral hot springs, an expansive private garden with dual rain showers, oversized bathroom, four-poster bed, and indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Nayara Springs is superb for couples and honeymooners.
Exotic touches, modern amenities and indigenous wood and stone are widely used to produce an unparalleled, authentic and romantic experience. The Springs Villas also come with a private host to compliment the ever-attentive hotel staff.
