Voted one of the seven resorts in the world with the most spectacular views by CNN Travel, our resort offers the best that Costa Rica has to offer. It features 28 thermal spring pools, 5 restaurants and bars, spa, and The Club Rio Outdoor Center, our on-site Adventure Center and Wildlife Sanctuary located on a mile-long stretch of the scenic Arenal River
The accommodations offer more square footage in each unit than any other area hotel as well as picture perfect panoramic views of the Arenal volcano and surrounding valley. The resort is proud to present five unique dining options including the award winning “Las Ventanas” restaurant, a fine dining venue, and the festive “Ginger Sushi” experience. Inspired by its appearance on ABC’s The Bachelor, guests are offered private Romantic Dinners and elaborate in-room Romance Packages. The 14,000 square foot Spa and Fitness center encompasses an entire level of the main building and reflects a serious commitment to provide a complete wellness experience. Eight Incredible Adventures In One Place; Club Rio Outdoor Center is located directly below the resort along our beautifully forested, mile long stretch of Arenal River frontage. With its eight different soft adventure activities, Club Rio is perfect for all ages and is a “Must See” area of the resort. The fact that all of these activities are offered in one location and on-site is a fantastic amenity for our guests. Some of these tours and activities include River Tubing, Inflatable River Kayaking, Horseback Riding, Rock Climbing and Rappelling, Nature Tours, Hot Springs, and River Fishing. Before and after the scheduled tours, we encourage our guests to walk the hiking trails leading to secluded, natural hot springs just feet away from the river’s edge. Club Rio also features Arenal’s finest animal sanctuary. In conjunction with the MINAE (Ministry of Environment and Energy) we operate a preserve for Costa Rican wildlife that have been confiscated from poachers or donated by other private reserves, rescue centers or individuals. Our Wildlife Sanctuary Tour gives our guests the opportunity to experience a large array of Costa Rican wildlife living in beautiful, natural habitats all in one easily accessible location.
