Nayara Springs and Spa and GardenArenal, Costa Rica
Nayara springs is an adults-only property with 16 spacious stand-alone villas, each with spring-fed private plunge pools, gardens with out-door showers and hammocks designed for two. Each villa has been designed with privacy and seclusion in mind, sheltered by tropical trees and plants.
This ‘resort within a resort’ is linked to the Nayara Hotel, Spa and Gardens by an elevated footbridge through the rainforest and also offers views towards Arenal Volcano.
The beautifully tended gardens are brimming with heliconias and other exotic plants and the natural theme extends in to the interiors of the villas, which have polished wood floors, beamed, plantation-style ceilings and four-poster beds draped in light, cotton netting.
Guests at the Nayara Springs have their own lobby and reception, yoga pavilion, swimming pool, restaurant and bar, and can also take advantage of amenities at the main hotel, including a spa that offers coffee scrubs and volcanic mud wraps, two more restaurants, a wine bar and pool with a swim-up bar.
