Katey and Oliver wanted to combine some outdoor adventure with the luxury of a relaxing honeymoon getaway — which perfectly describes Costa Rica! I was thrilled to start them off at the Nayara Springs resort: trekking into the forest, zip-lining, and touring a coffee plantation. They completed their honeymoon with some relaxing beach time at the Secrets Papagayo Resort & Spa. Whoever said you can’t have the best of both worlds?
Good morning Ann,
I just had to reach out and thank you for helping plan such an amazing honeymoon for us. We fell in love with Costa Rica, there really are no words to describe how gorgeous it was there. Both resorts were breathtaking, and different enough to make it even more memorable.
I’m not sure if it was because Nayara knew that we were on our honeymoon or because they happened to have construction happening on the Nayara Hotel Spa/Gardens side of the resort, but we most definitely received a room upgrade there because:
we were on the Nayara Springs adult only side and had a plunge pool on our deck
We were blown away with the service at Nayara. Nayara was a literal dream. We felt so catered to, and the team there is incredibly friendly.
Our ziplining/hike excursion was to die for, we learned so much! And the coffee plantation tour was also a blast!
The romantic dinner was perfect in every way. We are not sure if the dinner is supposed to include 1 or 2 bottles of wine, but they graciously gave us a second bottle to take with us after dinner of the wine we had with dinner because we enjoyed it so much. The team there really is outstanding, and we are so happy you chose this resort for the first half of our stay.
Everything was literally perfect.
Secrets was amazing as well! In such a different way! The beach was gorgeous, and the food was delicious!
We booked a spa and private dinner here as well, which has now given me an addiction to massages. We had our private dinner on the beach, the experience of that was amazing.
We loved having the option of spending our day on the “relaxation” side of the resort. The main area is nice for if you want to mingle and participate in the daily activities, but we loved the quiet of the pool by the spa here, and it was close to our room as well.
Being able to just chill and enjoy the sunshine made this a great way to spend the second half of the trip.
I know these are details you appreciate to have in your reviews, but we enjoyed ourselves so much, we felt that we had to write you an email to personally thank you. But I will certainly be making sure to post my review as well.
Katey and Oliver
