Our 35 villas are 1,500 square feet of pure luxury, romance, and privacy. These villas offer the ultimate experience with a private plunge pool fed by water directly from the volcano which is some of the purest in the world. The room includes complimentary breakfast, minibar, laundry, daily yoga classes and your very own personal host! Nayara Springs is an adult-only luxurious property with many unique and exclusive features. The hotel has two savory restaurants; Amor Loco and Mis Amores. In Amor Loco guests can enjoy gourmet cuisine while sitting by the pool or dining inside with live music seven nights a week. Mis Amores is our casual Italian fare restaurant with a beautiful direct view to the Volcano which is also connected to our new swim-up pool bar Cielito Lindo. Nayara Springs also has its own coffee bar; the coffee is a Nayara Signature that can only be found on property. Guest can also enjoy our open-air yoga pavilion or work on their fitness at our new state-of-the-art-gym. Nayara Springs is connected by two footbridges perched 150 feet high, above the rainforest canopy to our sister property Nayara Hotel Spa & Gardens.

We stayed in a villa at Nayara Springs for 4 nights during our honeymoon. The room was absolutely stunning and we loved the double outdoor shower. The bed was comfy, the outdoor pool was a dream and I loved the fact there were two separate areas for getting ready in the room, I

Dear LM, Congratulations on your marriage! We are so glad you chose to spend your honeymoon here with us. You provide such a great description of our villas, pools, and restaurants. Your fellow travelers will certainly appreciate your review. With respect to the restaurants, we find that our guests take full advantage of the many tours and activities that take place around the Arenal Volcano such as rafting, hot springs, sightseeing, national parks, etc. Sometimes all the activities make for an early night. As you noted, with four restaurants plus the wine bar and two pool bars, there are many options to choose for dinner. We hope you will return soon - perhaps for an anniversary! Sincerely, Frederic Cappello Resort Manager

Nayara Springs is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Everything is impeccable and beautiful - all grounds, pools, restaurants. Food is amazing - fresh and delicious. Wine pairing dinner is a must. Villa was spectacular; you are truly in the middle of the rain forest.

We stayed here for 4 nights and were stunned by how perfect everything was. The room was wonderful, the private plunge pool very welcome and the service impeccable. Being taken around in golf carts when it was too hot to be bothered (or raining) was the height of laziness and

We met a quite a few people who drove in Costa Rica, and found it fine! Easier also if you speak Spanish just in case there are issues! I wouldn’t drive in Guatemala but CR easier. With 6 of you may be better to get a minivan and perhaps a driver?

Hi, is it necessary to pre-book tours and spa appointments for a stay in March?
March and specially Easter week are HUGE holiday weeks for Costarricans. I would seriously avoid traveling there during Easter. Back to question of reservations for tours and spa. I would recommend making reservations for tours in advance as you have more choices and options. The Spa, I would suspect they would work hard to accommodate you even without reservations. The Staff at Nayara Springs is SUPERB, just like the grounds, the views and the food.

"Big and comfy rooms! LOVE the private splash pool/thermal bath!"
"We loved Villa 22. Halfway up the hill from breakfast; not too much of a walk to the spa; close to yoga and the gym. We’ll request it again."
"Great plunge pool and outside showers "
"We had two rooms - one on each side of the hotel. The villas are far better, but both are nice."
"very hilly property. If you don't want to wait on the golf cart taxi - then request a villa near the things you plan to use."
