La Fortuna, Northern Region
For volcano lovers Amor Arenal is one of the best places to stay in Costa Rica, with breathtaking vistas of its volcanic muse. The Rainforest Spa is a sanctuary within a sanctuary, overlooking expansive green canopy and offering treatments with Costa Rican chocolate, coffee and volcanic mud.
A trail of gorgeous casitas sits on the edge of a jaw-dropping jungle canyon, featuring panoramic windows and outdoor decks with heated whirlpools. Guests will feel a part of nature amongst layers of tropical jungle leaves that create both privacy and immersion.
Ideal For: rainforest luxury, nature hiking, natural wellness
- Why we love it
We loved the elements of earth and water embraced by Amor Arenal, where dramatic jungle landscapes and geothermal waters come with the territory. Hiking trails within the property guide you on a scenic journey through the tropical rainforest surrounding the hotel, plus we could choose easy-going or more challenging routes depending on the day´s energy levels.
When we felt like some relaxation was in order we dipped in a choice of three on-site soaking pools (especially nice after a morning of hiking), whose restorative waters are naturally heated by Arenal Volcano.
Amor Arenal has several schemes in place to help reuse materials where possible, buy locally, and reduce their negative impact on the surroundings. Casitas have several large windows to let in natural light throughout the day, while energy-efficient heaters and electrical equipment are programmed to work limited hours per day. External casita and garden lights are also automated to reduce electricity consumption.
There are no plastic elements in guest rooms, with amenities offered in reusable presentations like stainless steel bottles, and around the property glass bottles replace plastic. Amor Arenal also manages an internal recycling program and reuses wastewater for irrigation in the gardens. The restaurant´s menu is supplied with local products, supporting the economic growth of the area.
