Perched in the tropical forests of the Arenal, the Nayara Tented Camp is the region’s most suave eco-retreat to date. With high-design treetop tented suites looking out to the Arenal Volcano national park, this stylish hideaway is difficult to resist. Modelled on African safari tents, the suites are undeniably glamorous and feel like an extension of the forest itself. All offer four-poster beds, outdoor showers and free-standing clawfoot baths that dominate the marble bathrooms. The cherry on top is the panoramic deck, featuring a glass-edged pool that almost hovers over the rainforest canopy and faces Arenal’s conical silhouette on clear days. Opt for a room service breakfast out on deck for the most indulgent way to begin your day.
This is a resort that takes conservation seriously allowing wildlife lovers to tune into the sounds of nature; the croaks of red-eyed tree frogs, orchestras of exotic birds and the rustle of slow-moving sloths that loiter in the guarumo trees. When not absorbing these natural surroundings, guests can wander to the six spring-fed pools, enjoy some pampering in the marvellous open-air spa or take advantage of Nayara’s clutch of atmospheric bars and fine dining restaurants scattered around the wider complex, which also includes Relais & Chateaux sister properties Nayara Gardens and Nayara Springs.
