Rich hardwoods, rock paths to wander the beautiful gardens, flowers bursting in huge blooms that almost seem surreal – every turn shows you another wonder in this magical resort. The fantasy is real, no matter where you venture you will find your self surrounded by lush tropical rainforest, the sounds of birds, capuchin and howler monkeys providing a pleasant backdrop that tell your senses that you are not in Kansas any more.

SeaLife DC1400 If being sustainable fuels your passion Nayara scores exceptional high marks here. From the mundane energy saving light bulbs and water saving devices, to the actual design and architecture of the hotel, including using natural light where possible and screens that allow for cross ventilation to further reduce energy consumption the hotel has carefully carved out its home without disrupting all that nature affords this area of Costa Rica.

Still providing the back drop for you is impressive Arenal; the volcano is located at the center of Arenal Volcano National Park an area of rich bio-diversity, in fact Costa Rica is home to more than 500,000 species, which represents nearly 4% of the total species estimated worldwide, making Costa Rica one of the 20 countries with the highest biodiversity in the world.

From the moment you arrive you are treated not just as a valued guest, but a treasured family member, appreciated and well taken car of. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and in keeping with the surroundings the emphasis is always on complete relaxation, pampering, and total enjoyment of your vacation.


The Spa was as thoughtfully built as the hotel, built on the quasi-vertical slope of the mountain as it gently descends into the adjacent tropical rain forest to avoid impacting the delicate eco-system. This leaves you with impression that the spa is suspended over the rain forest – hung, tramped in space and time.SeaLife DC1400

Out of your league? Only a dream? Only for the rich and famous? No. No. and No. A vacation to Costa Rica and a 5 day stay at the Nayara Hotel Spa and Gardens is comparable in cost to a long weekend stay at a luxury suite in Las Vegas !
