When you feel like pressing the reset button is needed, when you know the time has come to step away from the daily grind, even for a short time, Art In Voyage is here for you - Experience your very own Journey of Renewal

Wellness & Adventure in Costa Rica await! You are not invited to a boot camp. Rather, we encourage our guests to indulge in some "me" time. Let us pamper you in our very own villa, introduce you to divine nature experiences through the Arenal coastline and jungle, take you hiking on active volcanoes and show you how to soak the right way in natural hot springs. These are just some of the incredible and relaxing experiences we have in store for you. And with Costa Rica's natural beauty as the background, your daily yoga experience, all of the sudden, becomes even more special. This is YOUR journey of renewal, and we bring you the best of both worlds: Luxury Resort and Private Villa. Enjoy the pampering a luxury resort provides, before enjoying a private estate in Guanacaste, with a personal Chef and massage therapists. There is no better way to experience Costa Rica's most beloved beaches and sea turtle haven than calling a private luxury estate, your home. On this journey, create timeless memories and fulfill the wanderlust in you. Nurture your mind, body and soul with this introduction to Costa Rica's natural wonders, culture, and relaxing way of life.

Highlights

Indulge in luxurious accommodations

Experience accommodations on both ends of the luxury spectrum: The pampering you have become accustomed to at your favorite hotels, while also experiencing home away from home; with a personal chef and house staff.

Hiking and Sightseeing Central America's greatest natural wonders

From active volcanoes to natural hot springs, from snorkeling to observing Sea Turtles, this journey of renewal focuses on you, your mind and your soul through the beauty of Costa Rica's tranquil landscapes, culture and scenery.

Your own yoga master

The only thing that can make yoga more beneficial and enjoyable to your experience is location! The exotic and beautiful backdrop for your daily yoga practice will calm and enrich your journey. Our host, certified yoga instructor will also make himself available for additional one-on-one sessions, and that is the Art In Voyage difference.

A focus on relaxation & renewal without excess

Although hiking and yoga are readily available on this journey, this is far from being boot camp! We aim to please our guests through a fluid and flexible experience. Do as much, or as little as you'd like. Guests will have plenty of opportunities to be active, while having the freedom to enjoy some alone time with your loved one or travel partner. This journey embraces your pace in finding balance, renewal and relaxation.

Accommodations

Nayara Resort Spa & Gardens

Nayara Resort Spa & Gardens

A lush paradise in the heart of the Arenal Volcano National Park, Nayara has been recognized as one of the world’s best resorts by Travel & Leisure as well as Condé Nast Traveler. Their heartfelt hospitality, impeccable service, luxurious accommodations, fine cuisine, outstanding spa, and amazing eco-adventures make them the premier destination in Costa Rica.

Their resort works very hard to respect the ecological balance of one of the most beautiful places on earth. The casitas and villas have large screened windows that open up to bring nature inside. Light flows from the bedroom to the private gardens, to the private terraces with secluded Jacuzzis. Modern amenities compliment the rooms to make them the most desired and exceptional accommodations in the area. Enjoy our state-of-the-art facilities, including remarkable restaurants offering international and local cuisine, a pool bar, and a wine and tapas bar. The Spa at Nayara is incomparable. Perched on a cliff overlooking the forest, the Spa is a spiritual enclave in an emerald jungle, a place of rejuvenation, harmony, and beauty.

Their freestanding “casita,” capture the exotic character of Costa Rica by showcasing the outdoor rainforest in a secluded and comfortable room. With sweeping views of the volcano or the jungle canopy, the casita offers privacy and value, wooden floors, and a quiet garden with an outdoor shower. Rooms have either a King bed or double beds.

Nayara Springs Villa

Nayara Springs Villa

This is an upgrade property for our Costa Rica Journey of Renewal

A cluster of secluded luxury villas immersed in the lush vegetation of Costa Rica’s pristine rainforest, are at the center Nayara Springs’s ultra-exclusive Adults-Only boutique resort. A place of breathtaking natural beauty, bounded by a creek and underground mineral thermal springs, the resort is located in the Arenal Volcano National Park, host to one of the world’s highest concentration of tropical plants and wildlife. Their vision was to create the most exceptional boutique hotel in all of Costa Rica; a secluded place of understated luxury that would not take away from the authenticity of a real rainforest experience. In order not to disturb the dense verdant jungle, they built a 250-foot pedestrian bridge above the canopies of the trees -the hotel’s only communication to the outside world- a pathway that gives guests privacy and peace from the moment they arrive.

The property includes all the amenities of a 5-star hotel: two oversized infinity edge pools that merge into the forest where one can spy toucans and hummingbirds or greet the friendly macaws that call Nayara Springs home; an award winning spa with outdoor treatment bungalows, sauna and steam rooms; and two restaurants: AmorLoco, a piano bar lounge serving lunch by the pool and candlelight gourmet dinners with live music, and Mis Amores, their Mediterranean bistro, an outdoor terrace overlooking the volcano and the forest where they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hidden among the tropical forest, the Villas features its own private plunge pool fed by natural mineral hot springs, an expansive private garden with dual rain showers, over-sized bathroom, sleek, four-poster bed, and indoor and outdoor sitting areas. Exotic touches, modern amenities and indigenous wood and stone are widely used to produce an unparalleled, authentic and romantic experience. The Spring Villas also come with a private host to compliment our ever-attentive hotel staff.

Hermosa Mar Villa

Hermosa Mar Villa

With a stunning setting overlooking the ocean, this open-plan estate boasts contemporary interiors and a location close to several beautiful beaches. Part of the exclusive community of Playa Hermosa, this brand-new villa is near shopping and dining, a short drive from a selection of beaches and even close enough to national parks and volcanoes for a day trip.
Five suite-style bedrooms make this property the perfect way to end your stay in Costa Rica.

Start the day with a coffee or fresh juice at the shaded sitting area on the terrace, settle in with a book on a lounge chair and have a swim in the gently curving infinity pool while enjoying the views of the Gulf of Papagayo. Lounge chairs facing the windows let you take in the ocean views.

En-suite bathrooms, ocean views and direct access to the terrace make the villa’s five bedrooms feel like resort-worthy private retreats. Soft tones of green and orange on the walls take inspiration from local flora, while playful artwork in the bedrooms depicts some of the native fauna.
