Nayara Tented Camp, Costa Rica‘s top glamping resort, is getting larger.
The resort is expected to finish an expansion this summer by adding the main building, reception area, bar, lounge fire pit, and pool, along with other amenities.
This is in addition to a variety of new lodging options, including a pair of villas with two bedrooms and six new two-bedroom suites, tented rooms, and two additional tented suites.
This brings the total number of rooms available to thirty-eight.
Nayara, which first opened in 2019, was among the first luxury camps in Central America.
Located on the fringes of Arenal Volcano National Park, Nayara has tented accommodations along the side of a hill, with enormous verandas equipped with infinity-edged plunge pools and hammocks. You may go on a guided birding walk in the national park, or simply stay in your tent and try to spot one of the resort’s resident sloths.
The tented camp comprises seven hot springs pools tucked in the forest.
Perched on a mountain top with jaw-dropping panoramic views over the rainforest to the Arenal Volcano, the tents are built on stilts to maximize vistas and leave nature below undisturbed.
According to their website, Nayara highlights the stunning natural beauty, intimate spaces, and connecting with nature.
“Our mission is to offer you authentic, warm, and extraordinary service and share our ‘Pura Vida’ tradition. We take pride in our natural and cultural richness and in being environmentally and socially responsible in everything we do,” the statement reads.
The famous glamping resort also commits itself to sustainability, “At the tented camp, sustainable tourism is our driving motivation. We believe in building in harmony with nature, leaving space for wildlife and wilderness, while contributing to the growth of our local community. We are proud of our numerous social and environmental initiatives. We are environmentally friendly and socially responsible without compromising the design or the local culture.”
As part of their commitment to nature, they are also are working hard to become a single-use plastic-free resort.
“We have replaced plastic water bottles with glass reusable bottles in the villas, eliminated plastic straws, and continue to recycle plastic and cartons.”
