The upmarket hideaway offers an intimate experience with its special location and private facilities, perfect for couples on a romantic trip.

Spacious, luxurious accommodation is split between deluxe rooms and spacious suites. The elegant Forest Celeste rooms are located within the lodge’s private tropical gardens. Each art deco room is fitted with hardwood floors, high bamboo ceilings, king or queen size beds, LCD TV and DVD player, attached private bathroom with walk-in shower and a small private garden with outdoor shower.

There is a good trail network through the forest in the national park close to the lodge where a natural river pool that offers safe swimming can be found. One of the highlights of the park is the clear, blue water Celeste River, thermal pools and impressive waterfall which offer a safe and memorable swim at certain spots. There is also a vivid blue pool naturally created where two rivers meet.

The local cloud forest is home to a great diversity of wildlife including plenty of birds, primates, coatis, reptiles and amphibians and even Baird’s tapir can occasionally be seen around dusk at the lake.

This is the second trip with reef and Rainforest and it certainly met all of our expectations. (Your representatives) were excellent as were all the lodges generally. There was a good balance of organised tours and time to ourselves – this was just what we wanted. Your choice of locations in Costa Rica was again excellent sharing your local knowledge and expertise and assessing what we wanted. Thank you very much for your help and organisation. We look forward to using you again and will happily recommend you.
