  • Jan 23, 2013
The Springs Resort & Spa was voted by CNN one of the seven hotels with the most spectacular views in the world.

Hotel were also the filming site of ABC's The Bachelor Costa Rica 2011 Episode. With its unsurpassed attention to detail the stunning new Springs Resort & Spa seeks to redefine the highest standards of excellence for world class luxury resorts.

The timeless architecture and interior design blend thoroughly with the unique location and natural attributes of the 165 acre property such as the spectacular view of the active Arenal Volcano, the mineral laden, artesian hot springs, the lush rain forest and the incredibly scenic Arenal River. Although recently opened in the fall of 2008 the resort has become quickly famous for the surreal, picture perfect view of the Arenal Volcano and surrounding countryside offered from every single guest room. From the bed you need only to open your eyes to gaze directly at the smoking volcano framed flawlessly by a grand arched window.

THE SPRINGS SPA AND FITNESS CENTER

The fourteen thousand square foot Springs Spa and Fitness Center also pays homage to the grand volcano with picturesque views from the treatment rooms, the men's and women's salons as well as the cardio center and lobby atrium. As you descend the grand staircase to the Spa's reception you will find ancient symbols of strength, balance, harmony, and nature subtlety embedded in the marble, stained glass and wood finishes. Massages, facials, body wraps, manicures and pedicures are offered in this luxurious and holistic setting administered by trained professionals with the latest technology.

NATURAL HOT MINERAL SPRINGS, POOLS AND WATERFALLS

The eighteen freeform, landscaped pools provide our guests with great views of the volcano and a multitude of options. With temperatures ranging from 83 F to 103F 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 the hot mineral springs reveal an ideal natural combination of high bicarbonates and high chlorides with relatively low sulfur content to provide a safe and clean soaking experience. The high level of natural salt chlorines in our spring water makes them the cleanest hot springs in Arenal, La Fortuna, Costa Rica.

Dining

LA LAGUNA BAR (LAGOON BAR)
Open 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM

Located 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 88F 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. When there is a televised sporting event this becomes the best sports bar in La Fortuna, Arenal where you sit in the warm water and watch the game on our flat screen TV's. Spending a few hours at this bar which has the best view of the Arenal Volcano is one of the best things to do in La Fortuna.
LOS PERDIDOS BAR (THE LOST ONES)
Located at the nexus of the trails within Perdido Springs (Lost Springs), this is a rustic palm thatch jungle bar that seats about eight people surrounded by hot spring waterfalls on three sides and gardens on the other. There will be waiter service to all seven of the Perdido Springs Pools from this bar. This is a great place to watch the adventurous take a ride down our water flume the Monkey Slide.
GAME LOUNGE
Located on our Game Lounge Level this bar is not only for sushi but is a great place to watch sports on Satellite TV and perhaps play a game of pool, darts or backgammon. Don't forget to come to the Sunset Terrace located just steps away from the bar for happy hour cocktails. This is definitely the best sports bar in La Fortuna.
LAS VENTANAS ( THE WINDOWS)
Dinner 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Enjoy the best fine dining in La Fortuna, in the 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.

The 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 combined with the natural flavors of Costa Rica. If you want the best steak come try our imported rib eye. Our vegetables are grown exclusively for us on an organic farm and we love creating special dishes for vegetarian diners
TRES CASCADAS ( THREE WATERFALLS)
-Breakfast 6:30 AM to 10:00 AM
-Lunch 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM
-Dinner 5:30 PM to 10:00 PM

The 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 entre 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".
GINGER SUSHI
Open 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM

Whether you just want an afternoon or late night sushi snack or an entire meal, Ginger Sushi is your ideal option. . You will find that Ginger Sushi is just the best sushi restaurant in La Fortuna, Arenal but many sushi connoisseurs that live and travel in Costa Rica say that is the best sushi in Costa Rica. You can dine under the stars or under roof in our festive open air Casino and Games Level. Our fish arrives fresh daily straight from Costa Rica's fertile fishing grounds where they consistently catch Yellow fin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sea Bass and Snapper along with an assortment of other tasty seafood delicacies. If it is on the menu it is fresh! What better place to have a light, healthy snack while enjoying the view of the Volcano and perhaps a game of chess, checkers or backgammon.
TREETOPS GRILL
Open 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM

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 including the best hamburger in Costa Rica, 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 it is 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
Open 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM

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 onsite collection of 150 species. The flowers are so magnificent you have to touch them to make sure they are real.
