A Special Place that Connects the Elements of Life

Breathe deeply and feel the nourishing effects of the fresh oxygen exhaled from the thriving flora that surrounds you.  These rainforests are the lungs of the planet and they cleanse and generate the essential life elements of air and water while deep beneath the earth’s surface the fiery magma meets water and sends steam through the strata of rock, clay and minerals to bring the core elements of the planet to the surface for the first time right here on the property of The Springs Resort & Spa.  At The Sanctuary Spa we take these natural gifts from our own thermal mineral springs and offer them to our guests through therapies designed to enhance beauty, energy, vitality and balance.

Our fourteen thousand square foot full service luxury Spa encompasses one entire level of our reception building and reflects our serious commitment to provide a complete treatment experience to replenish your mind, body and soul making us the leading spa retreat in Costa Rica.

Las Hojas Spa Bungalow

Breathe fresh air and listen to the harmony of hot spring waterfalls as you contemplate the secrets of the surrounding rainforest. 

You will enter a heavenly river canyon surrounded by several hot springs and creeks. Each spring and creek presents a different temperature and therapeutic experience to enhance your physical and mental wellbeing. 

The water in our artesian, hydrothermal pools emerges naturally from volcanic magma thousands of feet below carrying minerals up from the various layers deep in the earth’s crust. 

These primary hot springs were exposed as the once mighty Arenal River cut its way through the valley over thousands of years. As the river cut deeper the forest enveloped these springs and created this magical place that boasts more shades of green than almost any place on earth. The light breeze and the spectacular view of the river complete the ambience. Please come join us at Las Hojas Spa Bungalow for a naturally remarkable Spa Experience.
