In the Silence of the Jungle
Within the lush vegetation of the exotic jungle of Costa Rica, silence reigns supreme.
Floating like a cloud in the canopy of the rainforest near the Poas Volcano, El Silencio Lodge & Spa is one of the quietest and most relaxing mountain hotels in Costa Rica. This eco-resort was created to be a luxury retreat for travelers who seek authentic experiences and a deep connection with nature.
Adventures, authentic experiences and a unique flavor: Costa Rica is a destination that envelops us in a world of nature and invites us to explore its thousands of wonders.
El Silencio Lodge & Spa is located in the picturesque Bajos del Toro, in a private 500-acre rainforest reserve, flanked by the Juan Castro Blanco and Poas National Parks. Only 90 minutes from San Jose, this ecological complex is a dream destination in and of itself. The Lodge & Spa was the first Central American member of Relais & Châtaeux, a curated collection of prominent small hotels that highlights the most select and unique destinations on the planet. This exclusive portfolio always surprises us with magnificent luxury hotels and impeccable service.
Both relaxation and gastronomy are focal points of the Lodge. Food is an essential part of the hospitality experience here; its culinary options have been designed to showcase the flavors, culture, and culinary traditions of Costa Rica. Guests enjoyed the opportunity to dine in a couple of distinctive environments: the Las Ventanas restaurant and the Hierbabuena restaurant.
The Lodge Spa is also a must. The sound of the flowing water, the whispering breezes and the continuous flickering of the candles converge in harmony for relaxing massages and body wraps. The outstanding features of this wonderful Spa include the Outdoor Yoga Deck and the Conical Room, which is designed to channel the essential energy of Costa Rica’s forest life to us.
Both inside the hotel and outside of it, the experiences at El Silencio Lodge allow us to experience the authentic natural landscapes, the adventures and the enchanting culture of Costa Rica. At the lodge we can either plant a tree ourselves or enjoy a bicycle ride in the Humminberg Garden, we can explore stunning waterfalls and go on horseback adventures. And, of course, we can not miss enjoying a tasting of Costa Rican coffees, known all over the world for their exquisite and corpulent flavor.
Subtle luxury and exciting adventures are the essence of the experience that guests can experience in El Silencio. A dinner in the forest lit with torches with the concept 'farm to table' –with ingredients from its organic farm and a curated wine list–, scenic walks in the Hummingbird Garden and in the trails of the cloud forest, and exciting zip lines through of the forest or rappel down the face of a roaring waterfall: This is Costa Rica.
