You don’t have to go on safari in the Serengeti to experience the unique luxury and style of the African continent’s famed tented resorts. Now Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano National Park has its own luxurious tented accommodations to call its own, courtesy of the award-winning Nayara Hotels Group.
Located 2-3 hours by car from Costa Rica’s capital of San Jose, the conceit of the new Nayara Tented Resort is a planned layout of several properties, each boasting its own nearly 25,000-square-foot tent. Each tented accommodation sits on its own platform perched in sight of Costa Rica’s highest mountain and enjoys exquisite 360-degree views of the mountains.
Each tent features a master suite and en-suite bathroom and an adjoining tent that can be arranged to serve as a second bedroom or lounge area. An outdoor living space complete with a plunge pool filled from nearby hot springs completes the idyllic picture.
“It is a magical setting for an ultra-luxury tented camp,” said Leo Ghitis of this new venture that Nayara Hotels is developing in partnership with Luxury Frontiers. The company is known for its portfolio of high-end tented camps in Africa, including Chief’s Camp in Botswana, Swala Camp in Tanzania, Olonana Camp in Kenya, and others around the world.
Now the experience of a luxury wildlife safari camp comes to Costa Rica. The first of its kind in CR, Nayara Tented Resort takes full advantage its rainforest surroundings, and will give visitors an even more unique way to experience the wildlife surrounding the resort, including more than 400 species of birds.
Nature isn’t the only amenity on offer at Nayara Tented Resort. In addition to the beautifully appointed tents, the resort will offer a 16-table restaurant and two additional private dining pavilions, a pool with a swim-up bar, cabanas, a fire pit and a Wellness Oasis with three spa treatment rooms and a relaxation room. Local elements such as volcanic mud will be incorporated into the spa treatments while the kids’ club will center around learning about the ecology of the surrounding rainforest and its inhabitants.
Nayara Tented Resort will be developed as a sister property to Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens and Nayara Springs.
