Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Nayara Springs is in the heart of the rainforest, a bridge walk away from sister hotel Nayara Gardens, near the quaint town of La Fortuna.

Rooms at Nayara Springs

The exotic villas feature private plunge pools, which are fed by natural mineral hot springs, expansive gardens with dual rain showers, and sleek four-poster beds. With modern amenities, indigenous wood and authentic designs, they are perfect for romantic seclusion.

Food & Drink

Amor Loco is a gastronomic gem, with fine dining set right in the heart of the rainforest, complemented by plush velvet chairs and stylish decor, alongside live music. From the sea, try the tropical cazuela with a bouillabaisse of scallops, shrimp, mussels, local fish, and coconut milk, mildly seasoned with hot spices.

Enjoy Costa Rican delights and more at the Mis Amores restaurant, which serves up everything from ceviche to wood-fired pizza, accompanied by spectacular views of the Arenal Volcano from its terrace. Treat yourself to signature cocktails at the swim-up bar.


Relax by the pool, and rejuvenate at the gorgeous open-air spa, where you can listen to the sounds of the surrounding rainforest while you unwind with a massage or a facial featuring natural ingredients such as volcanic mud, organic coffee and chocolate.

Activities at Nayara Springs

Soar through the tree canopy, gallop to the volcano, or walk along the hanging bridges to explore the area of one of the world’s highest concentrations of tropical plants and wildlife.
