Monteverde, Northern Region
High in the Tilarán Mountain Range, Monteverde Lodge and Gardens rests within a mystical ecosystem cloaked in misty ground level clouds. With a stunning location in private cloud forest reserve, immersion in nature is central to guest experience. Birdsong and the babbling of a nearby creek provide a fitting soundtrack for this natural oasis.
One of the best hotels in Costa Rica, the lodge feels modern and fresh, with the homely touches of a toasty wood fireplace and a beautiful garden with a swimming pool nestled amongst verdant vegetation. Guest rooms offer forest or garden views, some with balconies or terraces, and enjoy the peaceful melodies of the forest.
Ideal For: nature immersion, peace and quiet, sustainable travel
- Why we love it
The food at the hotel´s modern El Jardin Restaurant is amazing, with dishes made using sustainably sourced, local ingredients and served alongside garden views. Tasty signature dishes like shrimp tostadas, black seafood risotto, and rich chocolate lava cake go down very well after a day out exploring.
The property has an unbeatable location in protected cloud forest and we loved stepping outside to discover the exotic birds, chilled-out sloths, and elegant orchids that can be seen in the reserve´s dense jungle that´s been around for millions of years!
Monteverde Lodge & Gardens believes that responsible tourism should benefit and respect local communities, as well as the environment. The lodge employs 100% of its staff from local areas, whose love for their home is reflected in the genuinely friendly and personalized service they provide.
Operationally, much of the hotel´s energy consumption is supplied through its 47 solar panels, the swimming pool is purified with salt and stabilizers instead of chlorine, and biodegradable, environmentally friendly soaps, detergents, and cleaning products are used throughout the property.
Monteverde Lodge offers farm-to-table fusion cuisine at El Jardin Restaurant, using local ingredients and promoting Costa Rican cuisine rather than importing produce from far away. While enjoying their meal guests can appreciate authentic music played by local artists, supporting and celebrating local culture.
