Nayara Springs, Luxury Boutique Hotel to Open in Costa Rica Nov 2013

June 19, 2013 -

Nayara Springs, the aptly named boutique hotel slated to open in Costa Rica November 2013, will feature individual plunge pools fed by thermal springs, around-the-clock butler service, and other top-notch amenities.

Overlooking the Arenal Volcano, Nayara Springs is an ultra-exclusive enclave set in the tropical rainforest and connected by footbridge to the award-winning Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens.

Nayara Springs, with only 16 villas, is a unique luxury hotel with all the facilities and amenities of a 5-star resort. The lavish villas are hidden among the lush gardens with views of the Arenal Volcano. Each villa is equipped with its own plunge pool fed by mineral hot springs, and also includes an expansive private garden with exterior shower, sleek, four-poster bed wrapped in soft cottons, and indoor and outdoor sitting areas.

The villas boast a dedicated hotel lobby perched above the forest cliff, steps away from the state of the art spa, yoga pavilion, oversized adult-only pool, and sophisticated piano bar. At AmorLoco, the poolside restaurant, guests will enjoy a light fare menu for lunch or can sample Latin American inspired sushi, fresh grilled fish and vegetables grown at the hotel’s organic garden. Walking across a connecting pedestrian bridge guests will also have access to all the facilities available at sister property Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens. Dining options include acclaimed Altamira restaurant known for its international cuisine, Mi Sodita, a restaurant specializing in local Costa Rican fare, and Nostalgia, Nayara’s ultra-cool wine bar where guests can sip and sample the best Latin American wines from state-of-the-art, self-dispensing machines and/or have a five-course wine-paired dinner.

From the private terrace that overlooks the majestic Arenal Volcano guests can spy toucans and humming birds or make friends with the sociable macaws that call Nayara Springs home. The Arenal Volcano National Park is host to one of the world’s highest concentrations of tropical plants and wildlife, inviting guests to book tours and adventures exclusive to Nayara.

Built on an unspoiled mountain surrounded by primary rainforest, creeks and natural springs, the exclusive Nayara Springs is coming to life and will open its doors in November 2013. Its much-lauded sister property, Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens, lies beyond a 220-foot long pedestrian bridge; a ravine and thick forest separate the two hotels.

Located approximately three hours from the capital of San Jose, Nayara Springs sits in seclusion just outside the town of La Fortuna in the foothills of the Arenal Volcano. Rates at Nayara Springs will start from $590 US per night and will include a daily à la carte breakfast, welcome drinks, complimentary mini-bar, complimentary Internet access and complimentary long distance telephone calls to anywhere in the world. For reservations or more information, visit / or call: 1-866-311-1197.
