Nice to know

This environmentally conscious hotel is built to the strict energy efficiency standards of the Passivhaus movement. It is a unique hotel that puts sustainability first, and this thinking runs through every facet of Arima.

About the rooms

All rooms were decorated with sustainable materials and feature parquet floors. In the bathroom you will find a rain shower and/or a bath, bathrobes and slippers. With sustainability in mind, the rooms also monitor temperature, humidity and CO2 levels.

Our favourite room

Each room is luminous and decorated with natural materials, but if you want to go the extra mile, opt for the junior suite with terrace.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

The outdoor pool on the roof is open from mid-June to mid-September according to the weather conditions. Sun beds and parasols are available.

Work out and wind down

A fitness and individual or group yoga sessions are available. Make sure to book the yoga sessions in advance. You can have access to the adults only spa for 30 euros per person for 1.5 hours. At Foresta Wellness, surrounded by immense trees, you will find complete tranquillity. Here you will enjoy unique and customised experiences such as massages and other treatments.


Children of all ages are welcome but the hotel does not offer specific activities for kids. However, you can hire a babysitter for €60 per hour on request and according to availability.


Food & drink
