Hotel Royal Corin
Lake Arenal provides a medium for a number of exciting activities, including windsurfing (which is rumored to be the best in all of Central America), fishing and boating. Hiking and biking is good around the base of the volcano and in the Arenal Volcano National Park, and canopy tours can be arranged through the upper reaches of the rainforest. One of Arenal’s most soothing aspects is its bounty of geothermal hot springs – visitors are invited to sample the different facilities and choose which is their favorite.
The Hotel Royal Corin is a luxurious resort with a design that blends natural beauty and creature comforts. At nearly every turn, the Arenal Volcano is in view – from the reception room to the pool, from the bar to the glass-walled elevator to your very own room, there’s always a good shot of this incredible peak. The interior of the hotel is arranged with modern furniture and advanced architecture, while the rooms are painted with subtle shades of Costa Rica’s naturally occurring colors – reds, whites, blues and greens. Each room is comfortable and spacious, and equipped with a bathtub and shower, mini bar, cable TV, and orthopedic mattress.
If any tension has developed while traveling, it’ll be sure to melt away at the hotel’s spa. The Loto Spa offers full-body massages, pedicures and manicures, and has a sauna, Jacuzzi, and thermal-water soaking area. After soothing both body and mind in the spa, guests can eat like an emperor at the Emperadora Restaurant, which serves tasty food from breakfast till dinner. Afterwards, have a chat or a drink at the Lava Bar, an elegantly decorated bar with a panoramic view of the surrounding area. It serves up cold, refreshing libations and frequently hosts live music. The hotel has a spacious swimming pool, children’s pool, and swim-up bar. On an elevated level there are two thermally heated whirlpools and a cascading waterfall surrounded by lounge chairs.
