Hotel Senda Monteverde
Monteverde, Northern Region
For nature lovers, the rare and unique ecosystem of the cloud forest is one of the best places to stay in Costa Rica. Hotel Senda Monteverde feels hidden and private while being within walking distance of the town and amazing trails through private cloud forest reserve.
Guest suites and rooms are scattered across the property in mountain bungalows, some with expansive views from the hilltops as far as the Gulf of Nicoya. A simple, contemporary aesthetic features lots of large windows to let the outside in.
Ideal For: cozy mountain lodge, great location, independent travelers
- Why we love it
We love how multiple details come together to create a casual and comfortable stay. Peaceful, landscaped gardens and walkways can be appreciated from the suites´ open-air terraces and cozy seating, while heaters feature inside to keep warm in the chillier months - a rarity in Monteverde hotels! Crossing the long hanging bridge to explore the neighboring Aguti reserve feels like an adventure, where rare wildlife can be spotted away from the crowds.
A focus on hyper-local cuisine means you know your meals haven´t travelled far to be served at the on-site restaurant, with some ingredients grown in Senda´s own kitchen nursery.
As members of the award-winning Cayuga Collection of Sustainable Luxury Hotels & Lodges, Hotel Senda Monteverde aims to positively impact local communities and live in harmony with its cloud forest surroundings, one of the world´s rarest ecosystems!
In Senda´s beginnings, 5,500 native plants and trees were planted to bring neglected land back to life and presently, staff partner up with the Monteverde Forest Clean Up project to keep the surroundings in their best condition. Each guest makes a small contribution to the protection of the neighboring cloud forest and is granted access to the Aguti Wildlife Reserve, which the hotel also helps to conserve.
The property´s sustainability mantra is to keep it as local as possible, with an all Costa Rican staff, and locally sourced art, organic food produce, and bathroom amenities. Everyday sustainability practices look like solar panel-heated water, fully biodegradable cleaning products, and a no plastic policy with reusable bottles available.
