Our 35 villas are 1,500 square feet of pure luxury, romance, and privacy. These villas offer the ultimate experience with a private plunge pool fed by water directly from the volcano which is some of the purest in the world. The room includes complimentary breakfast, minibar, laundry, daily yoga classes, and your very own personal host! Nayara Springs is an adult-only luxurious property with many unique and exclusive features. The hotel has two savory restaurants; Amor Loco and Mis Amores. In Amor Loco guests can enjoy gourmet cuisine while sitting by the pool or dining inside with live music seven nights a week. Mis Amores is our casual Italian fare restaurant with a beautiful direct view of the Volcano which is also connected to our new swim-up pool bar Cielito Lindo. Nayara Springs also has its own coffee bar; the coffee is a Nayara Signature that can only be found on the property. Guests can also enjoy our open-air yoga pavilion or work on their fitness at our new state-of-the-art-gym. Nayara Springs is connected by two footbridges perched 150 feet high, above the rainforest canopy to our sister property Nayara Gardens.

Simply, stunning. Upon arrival with a warm and welcoming greeting from Alexandro - with fresh fruit beverages giving us an overview of the resort - to our amazing villa which is beyond what any photo can relate -the smell of the rain forest and the sound of nature is something you must experience . The food and drink is quite impressive and does deserve its 5 stars. The pool area And hot springs are a true delight . The resort provides golf cart service who are ready to take you around the resort . It’s hilly so be able to do some walking . Yoga and gym facilities are great too. The team members - go above and beyond !Do not let COVID keep you from going - our only regret is not having stayed longer. Already looking to book to come back in April .

Dear DakotaNJ, Thank you so much for the lovely review of our resort. We 100% agree that while a picture is worth 1,000 words, the beauty of the rain forest's smell is impossible to describe in words or pictures. As you know, we are very diligent regarding our COVID precautions and appreciate you sharing your confidence with your fellow travelers. See you in April. Sincerely, Oliver Schüschner Resort Manager

We had the pleasure of staying 7 days at this stunning resort. The personal service and staff was exceptional. Any request was accommodated with a genuine smile . The grounds were lush and you felt you were in paradise. Our private villa was HUGE and half the square footage was the “ his and her” bathroom area and AMAZING outdoor shower. I’m a swimmer and loved the “quiet pool” for my laps and the morning yoga was so inspiring . My husband loved our private plunge pool and the hot springs. Truly worth their 5 starts

The pictures alone will tell you its a beautiful property but it was truly exceptional. Loved the design of our villa and the overall style of the property. The staff was great with helping with excursions, etc. and coordinating pick-ups and drop-offs. We saw sloths (one was literally hanging out with us at breakfast), iguanas, raccoons, and so many birds and butterflies. The restaurants were all good with Asia Luna and Mis Amores (with its live music) being highlights. The spa is lovely too and the adults-only pool next to it is equally gorgeous.

Amazing experience at the Nayara Springs. The huge room with private pool was just perfect. Trees and flowers everywhere and we saw more wildlife in the hotel than in the tours that we made. The service is incredible. Free laundry, delicious breakfast and food. Cannot be better. I will come back

Second time visiting the establishment, only difference was Covid restrictions which does not create any barriers to great time. This time our weather was perfect 72-85 degrees and didn’t rain once which is unusual. We came for Valentine’s Day and they did such a good job in presentation and helping out anyway they came. Pool is awesome, spa is great, and their private dinner was very romantic. They take such good care of you here it’s hard to find flaws and of all the adult luxury hotels/resorts we have visited in the world it is in our top 3.
