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 takes sustainability seriously and has several schemes in place to help reuse materials where possible, buy locally, and reduce their negative impact on the surroundings. The hotel´s design channels natural light into the restaurant and guest rooms all day long, helping to minimize energy consumption and maximize natural resources, while heaters and electrical equipment are programmed to work limited hours per day.
Single-use bottles on the property have been replaced with reusable glass bottles or in-room stainless steel bottles, as well as room amenities offered in reusable presentations. Amor Arenal also manages an internal recycling program and reuses wastewater for irrigation in the gardens. You´ll find the restaurant´s menu supplied with local products, supporting the economic growth of the area.
