Nayara Hotel, Spa & Garden
NAYARA is Arenal’s jewel; a place of nature where romance emanates and life moves at a slower pace to allow time to rekindle old relationships and to start new ones in an enchanting way.

The resort works very hard to respect the ecological balance of one of the most beautiful places on earth. Nayara's casitas and villas have large screened windows that open up to bring nature inside. Light flows from the bedroom to the private gardens, to the private terraces with secluded Jacuzzis. Modern amenities compliment the rooms to make them the most desired and exceptional accommodations in the area. Guests enjoy state-of-the-art facilities, including remarkable restaurants offering international and local cuisine, a pool bar, and a wine and tapas bar.

The Spa at Nayara is incomparable. Perched on a cliff overlooking the forest, the Spa is a spiritual enclave in an emerald jungle, a place of rejuvenation, harmony, and beauty.

Nayara is committed to sustainable tourism and strives to be environmentally responsible in every way. The resort's first-class facilities and amenities seamlessly blend in with the tropical surroundings so that you may experience a profound and organic immersion with nature without sacrificing the quality and comfort you deserve.
