Nayara Springs

Nayara Springs is one of the most exceptional pieces of paradise in Costa Rica, preserving and highlighting the tropical landscape while creating an unprecedented oasis for guests. Nayara Springs is not only one of the top hotels in Costa Rica, it is one of the top boutique hotels in the world. Exceptional doesn’t begin to describe the 5-star, adult-only experience you will undoubtedly rave about after slipping into the oasis at Nayara Springs.

A 250-foot pedestrian bridge above the rainforest canopy is the only pathway between the outside world and the 16 luxury villas tucked into this tropical habitat. Each villa is a piece of private paradise, combining the perfect blend of exotic and earthy architecture, modern amenities, and unique decorative treasures from around the world. Every villa features a private plunge pool fed by natural mineral hot springs, king bed, private garden with dual head rainforest showers, large bathroom with indoor shower, A/C, cable TV with DVD/CD player, i-Home audio system, safe, complimentary minibar (except wine/liquor), Wi-Fi, and coffee maker. There are endless opportunities in and around your villa to relax and take in the rainforest surrounding, such as soaking in the warm thermal waters of your plunge pool, swinging on the patio hammock with a book, or curling up with a glass of wine in the living area’s lounge. At Nayara Springs, the relaxation and indulgence possibilities are endless.

While it’ll be difficult to leave all the spoiling luxuries of your private villa, make sure to take advantage of all the amenities outside your room as well. Before or after your in-room breakfast, start your day with a daily yoga class (complimentary) surrounded by nature. After a day of touring the area, unwind in their award winning spa that uses local, organic ingredients with techniques and traditions from masseuses trained by or native to Southeast Asia. Would you like to take home the ultimate souvenir? You and your partner can sign-up for a couple’s massage class with professionally trained therapists. Enjoy the finest dining in La Fortuna with dinner at Amor Loco or one of the other four top-rated restaurants across the bridge at Arenal Nayara (Kali, Kali Pool Bar, Altamira Restaurant, Asia Luna, or Nostalgia Wine Bar). If all that weren’t enough, enjoy nightly live music entertainment at their own piano bar!
