This is the swankiest resort in the Rincón de la Vieja area. Individual and duplex bungalows are set on a hillside above the main lodge, restaurants, and hot springs. Rooms feature heavy wooden beds and armoires, high ceilings, and plush decor. All include a spacious wooden deck with a view over the valley and surrounding forests. At the foot of the valley are a natural sauna, several hot springs of varying temperatures, and an area for full-body mud baths with hot volcanic mud. The hotel also boasts a lovely, free-form outdoor pool and full-service spa, set beside a rushing creek in the middle of dense forest. Packages that include hiking and horseback riding trails, ATV adventures, ziplining, and nice waterfalls nearby add to the fun, and golf carts are available to shuttle you around.
