Created by one of the country’s most famous architects, the El Silencio Lodge and Spa is a unique combination of a natural charm radiating vacation property, a quaint rural farm and earthy countryside homes. Every element (wood, glass, bamboo) involved in the creation of this lodge has been put in place to merge with the rustic aura and create an intrinsically luxury natural hideaway feel. The plush El Silencio Lodge (which means silent in Spanish), true to its name is a serene haven for those who want to enjoy the invigorating spirit of Costa Rica’s natural landscape without the characteristic buzz of a busy tourist resort. El Silencio Lodge & Spa offers everything from convenient guest amenities to a relaxing coffee lounge to a well-equipped media room and gift shop. Add to that a romantic restaurant and over five hundred acres of a carbon offset forest and this lodge becomes one of the most sought after accommodation choices in region. El Silencio is strategically nestled among hidden waterfalls and several other splendid ecological features of this bio-diverse area.
