With an exquisite design and dreamy setting amidst tropical forest on the lower flanks of a perfect volcano, Amor Arenal is much more than just another luxury lodge.

The wilderness feels close here, with natural spring pools in which to bathe, trails leading into the forest and privileged views of the volcanic cone above the treetops. You may spot a sloth as you wander the trails here.

Its Casitas are beautifully crafted so as not to detract from the overwhelmingly natural feel of the place: rich hardwood floors and frames are offset by exposed stone feature walls and floor to ceiling windows. Each has a wide terrace with its own plunge pool, and their elevated positions are designed to catch the breeze.

Dine inside or out as you wish at either of Amor Arenal's two restaurants where there's a focus on sustainable produce. Leisure facilities include a spa, and a gym where you can work out whilst enjoying panoramic views, while yoga and meditation platforms are discreetly immersed within the idyllic setting. Amor Arenal welcomes guests age 13 and over.

What our clients say

  • We always ask each other what the highlight was, but always fail.  It was really the variety.  There is really so much to remember.

    JS, Bath
  • Costa Rica is too beautiful to miss!

    PC, Moreton-in-Marsh
  • Highlights?: Seeing the Quetzal with Carlos; finding the MotMot on our own at La Quinta; seeing the Eyelash Pit Viper on the Hanging Bridges trip; all of the 5 days with Esteban and Alberto were brilliant (and my husband seeing the Roseate Spoonbill and Jabiru at Palo Verde - I loved the Fiery Aricaris a few feet in front of us at Rio Magnolia). In all we saw 234 species of birds.

    MCB, Stockport
  • Most memorable experiences: Waterfall rapelling at el remanso, the internal flights on tiny planes, everything was good

    SM, Knaresborough
  • Most memorable experience: “Very difficult to be specific but an eclectic selection would include:- Boat trip excursion with excellent guide from Tortuga Lodge; Singer/Musician at Dinner at Arenal Nayara Hotel; Crossing Arenal Lake (clear blue skies and we were the only passengers on the boat) and then scenic drive to Monteverde”

    VB, Sloane Sqaure
  • Highlights:- The friendliness of the people and the wildlife.
