With sweeping views of the majestic Arenal Volcano, spacious accommodations surrounded by the rainforest, and relaxing thermal pools fed by the region’s natural springs, Paradise Hot Springs Thermal Resort is a wonderful option if you’re looking for a smaller, boutique hotel in the Arenal region. The hotel boasts 8 separate natural hot spring pools and jacuzzies, a full-service spa and gym, an on-site restaurant, and a swim-up bar. These convenient amenities bring modern comforts to the beautiful colonial and rustic design of the resort, making it an unforgettable stay during your Arenal adventure.
Dining & Restaurants
The resort offers three on-site dining options: the Phoenix Pool Bar, the Azalia Restaurant, and the Ficus Coffee Bar & Viewpoint, all of which are open daily to guests and hot springs day pass visitors. The Phoenix Pool Bar is a swim-up bar in the thermal pools offering unique cocktails, fresh fruit smoothies, and delicious appetizers. For heartier meals, the Azalia Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with wide-ranging menu selections made with fresh ingredients. If you’re looking for a quick caffeine pick-me-up and amazing volcano views, the Ficus Coffee Bar & Viewpoint serves Costa Rican coffee and offers floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing a breathtaking scene of the Arenal Volcano.
Given the name of the resort itself, it should come as no surprise that a major highlight of this hotel is the pools fed by natural thermal hot springs. Though the pools are manmade, the water is sourced from the hot springs of the Arenal Volcano. The natural mineral water from the Volcano ranges in temperature from 95 degrees Fahrenheit (35 degrees Celsius) to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (41 degrees Celsius), providing a relaxing and soothing experience. When you’re a guest at Paradise Hot Springs Thermal Resort, you will have free access to the pools for the duration of your stay.
With an emphasis on naturally sourced thermal mineral waters from the volcano, the full-service spa at the resort focuses on providing a full wellness experience to couple with the on-site pools. Many of the pools and jacuzzies have hydromassage jets and waterfalls, so take a dip and then follow it up with a spa treatment to maximize the benefits of the mineral hot spring water. You can book facial treatments, body masks, and wraps, as well as varied types of massages with the concierge.
