Costa Rica: Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens
Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens, a 50-suite property in the Arenal region of Costa Rica, recently completed a year-long transformation, making it one of the hottest properties in the country. Nayara offers two suite categories: the Casita Deluxe (855 square feet) and Nayara Suite (1,135 square feet). All are individually decorated and perfectly situated for direct views of Arenal Volcano and feature outdoor showers, oversized marble bathrooms with glass-enclosed rain showers, and private terraces with Jacuzzis for two, hammocks, and chaises. Each suite also comes with complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access/Wi-Fi; and phone calls to the United States are gratis, too. The Altamira Restaurant (the resort’s all-day-dining option) features Costa Rican and international cuisine while offering some of the best views of the Arenal Volcano (and a telescope to see it, to boot). Kali-Kali is its poolside bar offering “wet” seats in the pool or “dry” seats in the shade.
