Nayara Tented Camp Just Built 16 New Luxury Glamping Tents – Robb Report
Nayara Tented Camp takes glamping to new heights.
The Costa Rican resort, which was one of the first luxury camps in Central America, has just added even more elevated tents and luxury amenities to its scenic grounds in Arenal Volcano National Park.
The second phase of the epic expansion saw the addition of a huge communal area with a party tent, bar, lounge, restaurant, pool and fire pit. Best of all, the property gained two new private tented residences, six two-bedroom tents, and another eight stand-alone tents. In total, the camp now has a total of 37 premium tents.
The four-bedroom residences, Casa Paloma and Casa Dana, can comfortably accommodate up to eight adults and four young children. Each residence has two main tents connected by a large terrace for private relaxation. The interior offers a fully equipped kitchen, a sitting area and a large television. Outside, meanwhile, there’s an oversized pool with lounges and umbrellas, a fire pit, and an alfresco dining area. The residences come with a personal concierge to help you plan all activities and experiences, such as a private dinner on your terrace.
Two-bedroom, two-bathroom tents are also not to be overlooked. Connected by a central terrace, each abode has a plunge pool fed by hot springs, as well as a large living and dining area. Even the stand-alone tents come with plunge pools.
In all tents, you can expect Nayara’s signature decor that combines bright, modern accents with safari-style touches. Think
canopy beds with botanical headboard murals, for example. Additionally, the palette is meant to reflect the rainforest surroundings with lots of shades of green.
The new restaurant is, well, the icing on the cake of the renovations. Ayla is led by Israeli chef Yanir Elnasi and offers contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with Middle Eastern influences. It also offers views of Arenal Volcano (don’t worry, it’s been largely inactive since 2010).
Throughout your stay, you can take advantage of the free daily yoga classes or join a birding excursion to spot natural wildlife. In the evening you can even join a frog tour. The camp also has six hot spring pools of varying degrees of heat (cool to very hot) nestled in the middle of the rainforest. Each spring, a bartender can make you a Guaro Sour or offer you a local craft beer.
Room rates start at $4,800 per night for residences in low season and $5,700 per night in high season.
