The Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal

With a spectacular view of the Arenal Volcano, natural hot and cold springs, four unique dining experiences, and an impressive full service Spa, The Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal promises to overwhelm you in every aspect of quality, service and design.

The resort perches one thousand feet above the Arenal Valley on a mountain ridge just six kilometers north of the active volcano but safely outside the government declared danger zone. Our higher altitude relative to other hotels in the area allows for not only incomparable views of the volcano, the lush valley, and the surrounding towns that sparkle at night, but also access to the area's famous prevailing breezes. In fact, the name Arenal is an indigenous word meaning Window of the Winds. With an average daytime high temperature of 80 degrees in the shade and nighttime lows averaging 70 degrees you are sure to enjoy countless comfortable hours in your balcony hammock, al fresco dining, or sipping a frothy tropical cocktail in one of our spring pools.

Our eighteen freeform, landscaped pools provide our guests with great views of the volcano and a multitude of options.  With temperatures ranging from 76 degrees to 103 degrees and environments that vary from raging waterfalls to tranquil forest experiences our guests can find the perfect pool for their mood and the current weather conditions.  Tests of our hot mineral springs reveal an ideal natural combination of high bicarbonate and high chlorides with relatively low sulfur content to provide a safe and clean soaking experience.

Las Lagunas (The Lagoons)   Located at the base of the reception building this area encompasses two acres of lush landscaping and an assortment of multi-level sun and shade terraces surrounding twelve pools.  Four of the pools are fed directly by water pumped from our Hot Mineral Springs and the other eight are chlorinated but heated to various temperatures by our Hot Springs through a heat exchange system.  These pools range in temperature from 83 degrees to 103 degrees.

Perdido Springs (Lost Springs) is a connected system of trails and seven spring fed pools located within a forest canyon just a short 100 meter walk from the lowest level of the Las Lagunas pools.  The trail to these Hot and Cold Springs, called the Heliconia Walk, is lined with 150 different species of flowering Heliconias along with beautiful rainforest trees, plants and vines.   In the center of these pools is a small jungle bar called Los Perdidos (The Lost Ones) along with a water flume called the Monkey Slide.   These pools range in temperature from 76 degrees to 98 degrees.

Our fourteen thousand square foot full service Spa encompasses one entire level of our reception building and reflects our serious commitment to provide a complete treatment experience to replenish your mind, body and soul.  Massages, facials, body wraps, manicuresand pedicures are offered in a luxurious and holistic setting administered by trained professionals with the latest technology.  Our treatment menu utilizes tropical botanical ingredients indigenous to the country as well as a variety of lab-tested, therapeutic volcanic clays harvested on the property near the hot springs.  Please ask about our unique treatments including the floating water massage offered in our mineral springs.

For our guests who enjoy staying in shape while on vacation we offer a comprehensive collection of the latest technology cardiovascular and strength equipment.  To enhance your workout experience the cardio room features an inspirational view of the volcano and surrounding valley.  

Our Spa facilities include a common lobby with spectacular views where both male and female guests can enjoy lunch or a relaxing break together between treatments as well as separate Ladie's and Men's relaxation areas for added privacy between treatments.  Of course, the locker rooms are equipped with steam and sauna rooms as well as private shower and changing accommodations.

We are pleased to present a varied selection of dining options sure to please even the most discriminating palates.  Whether you crave a chopped filet mignon hamburger served poolside at Treetops Grill or a Seared Yellow fin Tuna Steak prepared with a unique Costa Rican/Asian fusion sauce at our fine dining restaurant Las Ventanas, we are sure to satisfy your culinary desires.

Enjoy the finest dining in our incredible restaurant Las Ventanas where the only thing better than the view is the food.  Be careful to avoid the window seats if you are afraid of heights because the windows are angled out to allow you to look almost straight down a thousand feet to the river below! At night the distant mountains twinkle with the lights of cities thirty miles away.  Be sure to dine here at least once during the day and once during the evening to capture the complete experience.   

Our master chef has created a menu blending the latest fusion concepts and the finest ingredients found on Costa Rica's farms and in its two oceans.  The menu is a well balanced combination of beef, seafood, pork, and homemade pasta as well as vegetarian fare. The incredible desserts are prepared using some traditional French cooking methods combined with the natural flavors of Costa Rica.

Tres Cascadas (Three Waterfalls)

Our gourmet buffet restaurant would be appropriately described as a “Tasting” experience.  Here you will sample to your heart's content a complete salad bar with our signature dressings, hot and cold soups of the day, assorted fresh baked breads, and a selection of hot entree items of which a few will be specially prepared for you right at the buffet. The menu changes daily and may tend toward Italian one day to Asian the next.  Our dessert bar offers small bite size portions to minimize your guilt while sampling them all and, of course, maybe returning for an extra piece of your favorite.  Fresh fruit juices, tea and coffee are included. Even though it is a buffet you will have a waiter attending to your every need.  We like to refer to it as a Full Service Gourmet Buffet.

Treetops Grill

We are not sure whether to describe the experience as poolside, cliff-side or tree canopy dining.  It all depends on which way you turn because you are surrounded by five waterfall pools, while overlooking the tree canopy, down a slope which falls one thousand feet below, while the prevailing breezes rustle the palm fronds shading you from above. Add great food from the grill, an informal dress code, and some Jimmy Buffet music to the equation and you might realize that you have found the definition of the word vacation. Bathing attire is not only permitted its suggested.  Even better, if you don't want to leave the comfort of your poolside chaise lounge, we will bring the menu to you.  Because after all, we think this is what your vacation is all about.

Heliconia Bar
Located on the fourth floor of the reception between Las Ventanas and Tres Cascadas, this bar is perfect for a relaxing drink before or after dinner or for an afternoon cocktail. The seating presents a magnificent view of the volcano.  The music is a mellow Latin jazz and the feeling is casual elegance.  The bar is decorated daily with cut Heliconia flowers from our on site collection of 150 species.   The flowers are so magnificent you have to touch them to make sure they are real. 


La Laguna Bar (The Lagoon Bar)
in the center of our largest pool named La Laguna (The Lagoon), this swim up bar boasts 12 dry and 30 wet seats.  This unique pool has multiple waterfalls and contains chlorinated water that is heated to a more than comfortable 88degrees by a heat exchange system using the hot water pumped from our natural hot springs.  Another unique feature of this bar is the warm curtain of micro-bubbles emanating from its base that creates the sensation of sitting atop a flowing spring.
