  • The most tranquil of Arenal’s resorts with an adults only crowd but guests have access to the larger neighboring resort offering the best of both worlds.

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.

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.

Facilities at Nayara Springs are superb, including a romantic spa with open-sided massage rooms, yoga pavillion, oversized lap pool and sophisticated piano bar. Cross over the bridge that links Nayara Springs to its sister property Nayara Gardens and there is a second outdoor pool and spa.

Dining options abound at Nayara Springs, guests here have their own pool-side restaurant Amor Loco which is unexpectedly glamorous and makes the most of the hotel's organic vegetable garden as well as fresh seafood. Guests can also dine at any of the restaurants in Arenal Nayara where there is the open-sided La Terraza restaurant serving a mix of Costa Rican and international dishes, the Kali Kali pool bar serves snacks and cocktails, Asia Luna mixes Peruvian and Asian flavors and Nostalgia is a beautiful wine and tapas bar which also offers tasting menus matched with Latin American wines.

This central region of Costa Rica is one of the world’s most topographically diverse and plays host to a range of exciting outdoor activities such as white water rafting, trekking, horseback riding, hot springs, canyoning, rapelling, kayaking, zip wiring and canopy tours as well as Fly Boarding on Lake Arenal.
