Luxury & Nature Combine at Costa Rica’s Arenal Nayara

Picture this: you're lounging in your personal hot tub on a polished wood balcony sat high above the rainforest in #CostaRica. You're in a moment of pure #relaxation, when suddenly, parrots pop out and perch on the railing. Your curtains flutter in the wind since all the doors are open, letting the breeze wrap around you. If this isn't the definition of #luxury, I don't know what is.


Arenal Nayara Hotel Spa & Gardens is a place of nature where romance emanates and life moves at a slower pace. It allows for time to rekindle old relationships and to start new ones in an enchanting way. Nayara is an authentic Costa Rican journey, a property that reflects its location and respects the ecological balance of one of the most beautiful places on earth.
