Luxury tents, swim-up bar and hot spring plunge pools added to Costa Rican rainforest resort

by Jane Kitchen | 08 Dec 2015

A luxury tented resort will join Nayara Hotels, the Costa Rican wellness brand set in the rainforests of Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano National Park.

Nayara Tented Resort will include 24 tented lodges, each 954sq ft (88sq m), with a master bedroom and en-suite bathroom, along with an adjoining tent that can be arranged as a second bedroom or lounge. Each tent will sit on its own platform, furnished with an outdoor living area and a plunge pool filled from the nearby hot springs.

The tented properties are being built by Luxury Frontiers, which specialises in conceiving, designing and developing luxury tented suites and tree-top experiences.

The resort will also include a 16-table restaurant, two private dining pavilions, a pool with swim-up bar, cabanas and a fire pit.

“We loved the beautiful tented camps in Africa and Asia, and recognised that there was nothing in Costa Rica – or even Central America – as spectacular, especially nothing that was open year-round,” said Leo Ghitis, owner of Nayara Hotels. “We have access to the highest mountain in the area with 360-degree views. It is a magical setting for an ultra-luxury tented camp.”

Guests at Nayara Tented Resort will have access to the facilities – including the spas – at Nayara’s other two sister properties – Nayara Hotel, Spa & Resort, and the adults-only Nayara Springs – but Nayara Tented Resort will also include its own three-treatment-room Wellness Oasis, which will incorporate local elements, such as volcanic mud, into its treatments.

The spa at Nayara Springs features a steam and sauna room as well as open-air treatment pavilions that look out onto the rainforest and come with whirlpools and outdoor showers.
