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.

Property Details

The casitas, villas, and tents of Nayara Resorts are spread across three separate hotel areas, each specifically designed to create a profound and organic immersion with nature. Additionally, dedicated energy and water conservation efforts are exhibited throughout the property.

Nayara Springs

Nayara Springs is the resort’s exclusive, adults-only hideaway. Its 35 Springs Villas are some of the most lavish rooms in the country. They feature private plunge pools fed by hot springs, four-poster beds wrapped in white cotton, and outdoor day beds. Pedestrian bridges above the rainforest ravine connecting them to the main hotel.

Nayara Gardens

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. Stay in the Casita Deluxe, with sweeping views of the volcano and jungle canopy and huge bathrooms with outdoor showers. Or rather, 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 of the tents sit perched high on the hill, offering unrivaled views of the volcano from their private spring-fed plunge pools or outdoor showers. Link the tents 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. 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. Enjoy all-day ceviche and trendy international menus at Mis Amores and Amor Loco. Or rather, Latin fusion and sushi in the intimate aqua-and-orange Asia Luna. Sip fresh roasted Costa Rican coffee at Mi Cafesito or sample wine coupled with tapas at Nostalgia Bar. For casual poolside seafood and barbecues head to La Terraza’s terrace by the pool. Finally, for something extra special, splurge on a private dining experience with a personal chef in a secluded room overlooking the rainforest.


The Arenal Volcano dominates the landscape. However, 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. The Sky Trek and nearby hot springs are undeniably must-do activities. After that, return to the Nayara Resorts 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.
