The hotel in detail

Imagine waking each morning to the sight of the Arenal Volcano. Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens puts you right at its base, circled by exotic rainforest. With striking eco-luxury casitas right in the heart of the jungle, it’s little wonder Nayara is known as one of ‘the most romantic hotels in the world’.

Nothing is too much trouble here. In fact, a stay at Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens is about pure pampering. Natural beauty is the order of the day at the spa, high up in the rainforest canopy with open pavilions for treatment rooms. A couple’s massage or mud wrap could be accompanied by the sound of tropical birdsong and trickling water. Once mind and body are restored, treat yourself to dinner in one of four characterful restaurants.

You don’t have to go far from Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens for an adventure. Capuchin and howler monkeys call the trees here home, as do toucans and hummingbirds. Explore further with guided canopy, volcano and night walks. Take a water safari by canoe, kayak or boat, visit the nearby hot springs and go chasing waterfalls. Or take to the skies on a zip wire – an unforgettable experience.
