16 new luxury glamping tents built at Nayara Tented Camp – Robb Report

Nayara Tented Camp is reaching new heights.

One of the first luxury campgrounds in Central America, the Costa Rican resort has added even more lofts and luxury amenities to its picturesque grounds in Arenal Volcano National Park.

The second phase of the epic expansion added a sprawling common area with a reception tent, bar, lounge, restaurant, pool and fire pit. Even better, the property has received two new private penthouses, six two-bedroom penthouses and eight more private penthouses. The camp now has a total of 37 high-quality tents.

The four-bedroom residences – Casa Paloma and Casa Dana – can comfortably sleep up to eight adults and four small children. Each residence has two main roofs connected by large terraces for private relaxation. The interior offers a fully equipped kitchen, a living room and a large TV. Outside, meanwhile, there’s a large pool with lounge chairs and umbrellas, a fire pit and an outdoor dining area. Residences come with a personal concierge who can help plan any activities and experiences, such as private dinners on the terrace.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom tents are nothing to sneeze at either. Linked by central terraces, each residence features a hot spring-fed pool as well as a large sitting and dining area. Even private tents have swimming pools.

In all tents, you can expect Nayara’s decor, which combines bright, contemporary accents with safari-style influences. Thinking
for example, a canopy bed with botanical headboards. In addition, the palette is designed to represent tropical forests with many shades of green.

The cherry on top of the new restaurant renovations. Aila is led by Israeli chef Yanir Elnassy and serves modern Mediterranean cuisine with a Middle Eastern influence. It also offers views of Arenal Volcano (don’t worry, it’s been inactive since 2010).


Guests can use one of the six hot spring pools to relax day or night.

During your stay, you can take advantage of free daily yoga classes or join a bird-watching tour to see the natural wildlife. In the evening, you can even go on a frog tour. The camp also has six hot spring pools of varying degrees of heat (from cool to hot) nestled in the middle of the rainforest. Every spring there is a bartender who can mix you a Guaro Sour or serve you a local craft beer.

Rates for residences start at $4,800 per night during low season and $5,700 per night during high season.
