In quaint La Fortuna sits the gently rumbling Arenal Volcano and its surrounding national park. This amazing terrain is the playground for the unparalleled luxury of Nayara Resort Spa and Gardens, consistently rated a top destination year after year by international travel publications. The resort balances the comfort and pampering of its guests with a commitment to respecting and preserving the natural beauty that makes Costa Rica a tropical paradise.

During your stay at Nayara, you can expect indulgence at every turn, but without the typical exorbitant resort fees. From the optional private flight transporting you from the airport to the welcoming fruit cocktail, you know your stay here will be unlike anywhere else. Every day, you are treated to complimentary breakfast buffet, high-speed internet, daily yoga, free local and international phone calls, in-room movies, state-of-the art fitness center, housekeeping, and more. The fifty spacious rooms are the ultimate in privacy and extravagance, with air conditioning, hardwood floors, and environmentally-friendly bath amenities as well as private outdoor space featuring a gorgeous view of either the rain forest or the volcano.

While there is much to explore in the national park and the village of La Fortuna, you may never want to leave the resort grounds because you have so many choices for entertainment and relaxation. The Nayara Spa is the perfect place to relax and reenergize from the stress of your normal daily routine. The open-air treatment rooms make for an idyllic setting for yourself or a romantic experience with a loved one. You can also meander through the tropical gardens, sunbathe by the free-form pool, or escape from the rest of the world in your private bungalow oasis.

No matter what you are craving, you can satisfy your hunger at one of several restaurants that make Nayara Resort a gourmet’s delight. The festive farm-to-table Altamira is family-friendly with both upscale and casual fare, while the Amor Loco offers adults a romantic atmosphere and fine dining. Other options include the Latin bistro cuisine at Mis Amores, Asian-Latin fusion at Asia Luna, or delicious tapas and wine at Nostalgia. For a quick snack and a taste of Costa Rican beans, Mi Cafecito can brew you a delicious cup of organic coffee.
