The Springs Resort & Spa

Romantic boutique hotel that’s perfect for honeymoons, family vacations and more

The Springs Resort & Spa at Arenal is anything but understated. With a spectacular view of the Arenal Volcano, natural hot and cold springs, five unique dining experiences, and an impressive full-service spa, this is a spot that truly defines the word “vacation.” Thanks to its perch 1,000 feet above the Arenal Valley, The Springs offers incomparable views of the volcano, plus inspiring city views and comfortable breezes. With 165 acres, a 14,000-sq. ft. full-service spa, hot springs, a kilometer of frontage on the Arenal River and a wildlife rescue preserve -- this is a place where boredom is impossible.

What it's like

You came to Costa Rica to relax and explore, and The Springs Resort & Spa offers every imaginable spot to do so. When you arrive to this sprawling property located high on a mountain ridge, it’ll hit you: This is the ultimate spot to see and do it all. As you wind through the property, take note of the 28 hot springs and freshwater pools and five bars and eateries. You’ll hear children laughing, you’ll see couples smiling -- and no matter the reason for your trip, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable vacation here that’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

Independent spirit

Picture-perfect views -- plus an irresistible mix of nature, adrenaline and romance

Small touches

On a clear day, the view from this resort extends over 25 miles! Variety is a way of life here -- you’ll find 28 pools of various temperatures, and five dining experiences and five bars. Unlike most hot springs, there’s loads of space to spread out and relax on property. “Arenal” means “window of the wind” -- a fact that you will truly understand as you enjoy the pleasant prevailing breezes that are a unique feature of this resort’s location.

Eat and drink

At this resort, your imagination has no limit. So you’ll be treated to a varied selection of dining options where there’s something for everyone. There’s fine dining at Las Ventanas (The Windows). Or, choose a “tasting” experience at Tres Cascadas (Three Waterfalls). Craving fish? Try Ginger Sushi Bar. Treetops Grill is as delightful as it is delicious, with a relaxed dress code and tasty casual fare. Heliconias Bar offers a magnificent view of the volcano, as well as plenty of the beautiful flower for which the establishment is named. La Laguna Bar is an unforgettable swim-up bar.  The Ranchito Bar is an excellent spot for private functions, and Los Perdidos Bar is a rustic palm thatch jungle bar that is surrounded by hot spring waterfalls on three sides and gardens on the other.

And more

Don’t miss the Club Rio Outdoor Center -- located 1.5 kilometers directly below the resort, it’s the must-see amenity of The Springs. There, you’ll find inflatable river kayaking, river tubing, horseback tours, rock climbing and rappelling, hiking trails, nature tours, hot springs, mountain biking, fishing, swimming and a wildlife preserve for rescued animals. Hosting a meeting? You’ve found a great spot. With 27,000 square feet of event space, it’s no wonder The Springs Resort & Spa is Costa Rica’s leading conference hotel. Reality TV fans will appreciate that this was a host hotel for “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “The Bachelor.”
