Why We Love This Hotel

  • One of the best hotels in the world, according to CNN and Travel + Leisure
  • Views of Arenal Volcano are excellent
  • Next door to a national park for wildlife spotting
  • There are private Jacuzzis on every balcony


Surrounded by rainforest on the lower slopes of the Arenal Volcano, Nayara Hotel, Spa and Gardens has been rated one of the World’s Best Hotels by Travel + Leisure and CNN. It’s a particular favourite among honeymooners eager to combine wildlife spotting with cocktails at the swim-up bar, but it’s also good for families, with lots of activities to try.

The resort borders a national park, making it great for wildlife adventures and eco-tours: including zip-lining, canopy tours and trips to the Eco Termales Hot Springs. On-site is a spa, small pool, gym and an outdoor Jacuzzi tub.

The main restaurant is open for three meals a day, but Sushi Amor and its Latin-style sushi and empanadas are not to be missed. The quirky Nostalgia Bar stocks a large selection of Latin American and Spanish wines, with tastings available. The main draw for many, though, is the jaw-dropping setting -- the adjacent volcano is "arguably the star attraction," says Travel + Leisure.

There are golf-cart shuttles to help guests get around if you’re staying in one of the more far-flung casitas. The Asian-inspired rooms are housed within secluded cabins, and most have great views of the volcano. The dark-wood accents, including a four-poster bed and exposed beams, fit well with the rainforest setting. Each has an outdoor shower as well as an indoor one.
