One of the world's leading boutique hotels Nayara Springs villas is a luxury retreat for couples in the lush foliage of Arenal Volcano National Park.
This Relais & Chateaux adult-only boutique property represents the ultimate first class wind-down, set in luxuriant Costa Rican countryside. Here, you really have the feeling of being enveloped by the tropical rainforest. The romantic hotel, proud to be totally guest-focussed, is remarkably well thought of by both its guests and our visiting staff. There are just 35 independent palapa-style villas, each spacious and beautifully appointed with polished teak flooring and furnishings in earthy colours, every one featuring a king-sized four-poster bed and a private garden with a plunge pool shaded by palms and flowering shrubs.
There are four eating options including gourmet restaurants; a fitness room and comprehensive spa (daily complimentary yoga classes are offered). Optional activities on offer include adventure sports such as rafting and horse riding as well as more sedate guided walks in the forest.
Nayara Springs It is connected by a rainforest hanging bridge to its nearby sister hotel Nayara Resort, Spa and Gardens, the facilities of which the Nayara Springs guests can use (but, to protect the privacy and exclusive feel to the couples-orientated Springs Villas, this is not reciprocal).
