Nayara Resorts is a luxurious yet low-key sophisticated jungle jewel exceeding every expectation. Engulfed by emerald forests and tropical gardens, this three-in-one resort is a genuine reflection of the beautiful land it inhabits, including the imposing Arenal Volcano behemoth, one of the youngest active volcanoes in the Southern Hemisphere, which can be viewed from every angle of the property.
Nayara’s casitas, villas, and tents are spread between across three separate hotel areas and are specifically designed to create a profound and organic immersion with nature, with dedicated energy and water conservation efforts exhibited throughout.
Nayara Springs is the resort’s exclusive, adults-only hideaway. Its 35 Springs Villas are some of the most lavish rooms in the country and feature private plunge pools fed by hot springs, four-poster beds wrapped in white cotton, outdoor day beds, and pedestrian bridges above the rainforest ravine connecting them to the main hotel.
Nayara Gardens is the resort’s sprawling family-friendly compound. Bright greens and oranges mimic the rainforest outside, transforming each of Nayara Garden’s freestanding bungalows into authentic yet modern representations of Costa Rica. Choose from the Casita Deluxe, with sweeping views of the volcano and jungle canopy and huge bathrooms with outdoor showers, or the singular Rainforest Villa, a romantic octagonal light-filled casita with an oversized Jacuzzi located on the wrap-around balcony.
Nayara Tented Camp
The resort’s newest addition, Nayara Tented Camp offers an exciting, eco-friendly experience for adults and children alike. Exclusivity comes in the form of 18 luxury tents, each perched high on the hill to offer unrivaled views of the volcano from their private springs-fed plunge pools or outdoor showers. 12 of the tents can be linked together to accommodate two couples traveling together or a family with children. Oversized bathtubs and four-poster beds round out any tantalizing tented camp stay.
When venturing to the main part of the hotel, opt for a golf cart ride to witness the three-toed sloth, butterflies, and capuchin and howler monkeys frolicking in the lush but beautifully tended rainforest at fingertips length. Between the resident parrots frequenting the bars and restaurants and the many swimming pools and hot tubs set throughout the property, it is difficult to resist the change of pace this destination demands. Seven dining establishments offer the gamut of options: all-day ceviche and trendy international menus at Mis Amores and Amor Loco, Latin fusion and sushi in the intimate aqua-and-orange Asia Luna, fresh roasted Costa Rican coffee at Mi Cafesito, wine and tapas at Nostalgia Bar, and casual poolside seafood and barbecues at La Terraza and the terrace by the pool. For an extra special experience, splurge on a private dining experience with a personal chef in a secluded room overlooking the rainforest.
Not only does the Arenal Volcano dominate the landscape, it also serves as the source of amazing adrenaline-pumping adventures and ecological discoveries. Canopies, bridges, waterfalls, and caves lend themselves to mountain biking, hiking, climbing, rafting, fishing, and any outdoor activity imaginable. After visiting the must-do Sky Trek and nearby hot springs, return to the Nayara spa, a spiritual enclave suspended on the mountain slope, for relaxation amid the sights, sounds, and scents of the rainforest. The various massages and scrubs found here are generated from the organic coffee beans, volcanic mud, and chocolate clay found exclusively in this corner of the world.Request Information
