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, oversized 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.
