The uniqueness of Arenal Observatory Lodge & Spa extends beyond our picturesque location perfectly positioned between the majestic Arenal Volcano and beautiful Arenal Lake, giving you the most amazing panoramic views. We are off the beaten path so that you can be immersed in Costa Rica’s incredible nature. Being the only hotel found inside the boundaries of Arenal Volcano National Park means our private reserve is full of wildlife and is especially spectacular for bird watching. Over 500 bird species have been sighted here! You have 870 acres on our property to explore, including natural primary rainforest with rivers and waterfalls. Go hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking on 11 kilometers (7 miles) of well-maintained trails. Want to observe the rainforest from above? Climb up our observation tower. There is also a universal access trail through our gardens and rainforest. Enjoy 48 comfortable hotel rooms, two lovely villa rentals, our relaxing Spa, refreshing swimming pool, and delicious meals in our restaurant with huge windows for enjoying the views. Arenal Observatory Lodge & Spa gives you all that you came to Costa Rica to experience in one extraordinary place
