Our Wellness Ambassador
A passionate human being who lives the wellness in her daily life.
Mauren Villalobos was born in Costa Rica but she considers herself as a nomad. Over 15 years of experience in the wellness industry, traveled the world to connect with different cultures, ancestral techniques and empowering traditions to the service of others.
Starting as a spa therapist, she made her way to go deeper into the holistic therapies and experienced by herself the power of self-observation and growth.
She is always trying to remove all identities from her curriculum but she has been a massage and beauty therapist at 5 stars hotels in Costa Rica and Qatar, skin care international trainer for a well-known European brand in middle east and Europe, spa supervisor and team leader, beauty ambassador at Norwegian Cruise Line, Yoga instructor, ecstatic dance DJ and host, mindfulness coach, empowering speaker, ayurveda and shamanic student and practitioner.
“Life is a treasure and a constant evolution, flowing with the unknown brings blissfulness. We can find everything in the nothingness and fulfilment in the emptiness” Mauren
It is a mutating spectacle in a surreal place, calling it hotel is a very limited expression. Our sanctuary has a special energy that can transform any discomfort in your physical body, mental or emotional state.
We have collected a large booklet of services and healers to create or collaborate with tailor made retreats and vacations with intention. There is an environment waiting for you to go inwards and connect with the purity of yourself awithin.
Inspired by ancestral living, we take each being as an individual and recognize the elements of nature (fire, air, water and earth) in them to create a personalized therapy and experience.
We have created a circuit of different experiences around the property to connect with these nature elements and align them with each being. We understand that we are more than a body and a mind, therefore, we accompany each person on their evolutionary path and guide them to feel the body, observe the mind and be more fulfilled.
Complimentary daily wellness activities.
Our Rainforest Spa is a serene refuge amidst Arenal’s tropical forest.
Treat yourself to a wellness journey that harnesses nature’s healing powers. Our expert team will welcome you to a sacred space for special treatments that will help you relax and rejuvenate.

Amor Arenal’s Rainforest Spa is a charming sanctuary for purposeful wellness treatments and rituals.

Aromatherapy, sensory techniques, and the most select products and natural ingredients are artfully combined in unforgettable feel-good journeys. All while enjoying sweeping views of the forest canopy.
"Water has memory, within it carries our thoughts and prayers."
Relax in your own spa-plunge pool or swim in one of two natural spring ponds on the hotel grounds.
Reconnect with the water experiences from our powerful Janzu (water therapeutic art meditation). It is an experience that brings well-being to all our bodies: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
The benefits of a single session are perceived throughout our whole being; a complete treatment induces profound changes in the way we carry ourselves in the world, reaching levels of relaxation and surrender we didn’t know we were capable of. Janzu is an art because it requires discipline, creativity, and practice. It is therapeutic because it has multiple benefits for the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It is a meditation because it changes the pattern of brain waves from beta to alpha. This journey of health and consciousness is carried out in the water.
Wander from your room to the rainforest! You can spend hours along our jungle trails meandering through lush vegetation, streams, and water falls. Most people come to Arenal to immerse themselves in nature, and here you have direct access!
Going beyond a physical and educational experience walking the trails, you can also try our Forest Bathing experiences. Whether you call it a fitness trend or a mindfulness practice (or a bit of both).
Forest bathing emerged in Japan in the 1980s as a physiological and psychological exercise called shinrin-yoku (“forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”). The purpose was twofold: to offer an eco-antidote to tech-boom burnout and to inspire residents to reconnect with and protect the country’s forests.
With more than 50 percent of the country covered by forest, Costa Rica is a forest bathing paradise. Nearly six percent of the world’s biodiversity is found here. Time spent immersed in nature is good for us.
