The Springs Resort & Spa at Arenal

Where the word "Vacation" is truly defined.
Fortuna, Arenal, Costa Rica

With its unsurpassed attention to detail the stunning new Springs Resort & Spa seeks to redefine the highest standards of excellence for world class luxury resorts. The timeless architecture and interior design blend thoroughly with the unique location and natural attributes of the 165 acre property such as the spectacular view of the active Arenal Volcano, the mineral laden, artesian hot springs, the lush rain forest and the incredibly scenic Arenal River. Although recently opened in the fall of 2008 the resort has become quickly famous for the surreal, picture perfect view of the Arenal Volcano and surrounding countryside offered from every single guest room. From the bed you need only to open your eyes to gaze directly at the smoking volcano framed flawlessly by a grand arched window.

The fourteen thousand square foot Springs Spa and Fitness Center also pays homage to the grand volcano with picturesque views from the treatment rooms, the men’s and women’s salons as well as the cardio center and lobby atrium. As you descend the grand staircase to the Spa’s reception you will find ancient symbols of strength, balance, harmony, and nature subtlety embedded in the marble, stained glass and wood finishes. Massages, facials, body wraps, manicures and pedicures are offered in this luxurious and holistic setting administered by trained professionals with the latest technology.

All of the four unique dining experiences at The Springs Resort & Spa have captivating views of the volcano and provide a host of culinary options from ultra fine dining at Las Ventanas to casual fare at the poolside Treetops Grill. Ginger Sushi offers traditional Japanese as well as tropical sushi creations while the gourmet buffet at Tres Cascadas allows guests to dine al fresco with cuisine to rival the finest restaurants.

Each guest room and villa at the resort offers a picturesque volcano view, private balconies, hammocks, rocking chairs, luxurious marble bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs and multiple head showers, satellite television with 37” flat screen TV’s, surround sound CD/DVD players with IPOD/MP3/USB connectivity, wireless internet access, wet bar, safe, mini bar refrigerator and coffee maker.

With its abundant natural resources the resort offers an incomparable onsite amenity package that includes hot spring pools, horseback riding, ATV tours, hiking, bird watching and an assortment of river related activities such as kayaking, fishing and swimming. Perhaps the most unique excursion is a visit to the on-site wildlife preserve featuring a variety of animals and a collection of thirty rescued indigenous wild cats including pumas, ocelots, margays and jaguarundis.

The Springs Resort and Spa promises to overwhelm you in every aspect of service, quality and design.
