We stayed in Nayara Springs in late May 2017 with my husband. The resort is divided into two parts - Nayara and Nayara Springs. When we arrived we were taken to our villa in Nayara resort, we asked if there was any difference between villas here and in Nayara Springs and it turned out those villas were bigger, newer and...

I adore this place! I visited as a solo traveler, and I was treated as a princess. My villa (#27) was everything I could have wanted. Honestly, I feel weirdly protective over it, so if you stay there, please take care of it! :D The location is perfect, and it's very private and quiet. The bed is so ridiculously comfy!...

This place is absolutely one of a kind. I heavily research all places before visiting but this resort still managed to surprise me with the small touches of luxury during our entire stay for our honeymoon even after reading so many 5-star reviews. Our villa had a slight volcano view and special decorations for our honeymoon / my husband's birthday....

We just spent three amazing days in May in Nayara Springs. Despite the rainy season we enjoyed our trip very much. It really only rained in the evening and the entire day was very pleasant. The resort was not crowded so we had the whole place pretty much to ourselves. We booked the casita not the villa and we loved...

Over the last few years my wife and I have had the privilege of doing a bit of traveling and since the beginning, we've had one rule, we both agreed not to return to the same location twice.

This is one, if not the, most romantic place ever. Excellent attention to all details from room layout, to service to ammenities. Even better, it's a quick and easy flight from almost anywhere in the USA.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our 35 villas are 1,500 square feet of pure luxury, romance, and privacy. These villas offer the ultimate experience with a private plunge pool fed by water directly from the volcano which is some of the purest in the world. The room includes complimentary breakfast, minibar, laundry, daily yoga classes and your very own personal host! Nayara Springs is an adult-only luxurious property with many unique and exclusive features. The hotel has two savory restaurants; Amor Loco and Mis Amores. In Amor Loco guests can enjoy gourmet cuisine while sitting by the pool or dining inside with live music seven nights a week. Mis Amores is our casual Italian fare restaurant with a beautiful direct view to the Volcano which is also connected to our new swim-up pool bar Cielito Lindo. Nayara Springs also has its own coffee bar; the coffee is a Nayara Signature that can only be found on property. Guest can also enjoy our open-air yoga pavilion or work on their fitness at our new state-of-the-art-gym.
