Cloud Forest Lodge
Surrounded by trees dripping with bromeliads and alive with butterflies and hummingbirds, Cloud Forest Lodge is the ideal hotel to be enveloped by nature.
Beautifully set within cool cloud forest, 10 minutes from the Monteverde Reserve (in the Santa Elena area), this lodge is surrounded by trees dripping with bromeliads and alive with butterflies and hummingbirds. Rooms at the lodge are spacious yet simple, designed to blend into their natural surroundings and deliberately lack modern amenities such as TVs and ACs, which of course have an impact on the environment. Instead extra blankets and energy efficient light bulbs are used creating a warm cosy atmosphere. The focus on the natural is carried through into the restaurant where fresh, natural ingredients and home-baked bread are always the order of the day. Guest rooms and restaurant have balconies where you can just relax and enjoy the flora and fauna.
