Nayara Springs, a collection of 16 high-luxury private villas, and sister hotel to the Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens, is opening in Costa Rica this December. Built atop an untouched mountain in the Arenal rainforest, the new property is surrounded by creeks, natural hot springs, and boasts sublime views of the third most active volcano on earth.
The main attraction of Nayara Springs will be the pools fed by mineral hot springs that are built into every villa. In addition to full butler service, all accommodations will feature a private garden with open air shower, as well as indoor and outdoor lounging areas.
The villas are located steps away from a spa, yoga pavilion, oversized adult pool, and piano bar. All parts of the resort overlook a ravine, providing a true immersion in the rainforest. At Amor-Loco, the poolside restaurant, clients can enjoy Latin American inspired sushi, fresh grilled fish and vegetables grown at the hotel’s organic garden.
Located about 2.5 hours from the capital of San Jose, Nayara Springs sits in seclusion just outside the town of La Fortuna, in the foothills of the Arenal Volcano. The Arenal Volcano National Park is host to one of the world’s highest concentrations of tropical plants and wildlife, and one of the most popular destinations in all of Costa Rica. Clients have the option to book tours and adventures exclusive to Nayara, including hikes to the volcano, zip-lining through the reinforces, riding in a Sky Tram for Arenal Volcano and lake views and rafting on the Toro River (a Class III river).
