El Silencio

Silencio Lodge & Spa is an eco luxury hotel located in Costa Rica';s tropical cloud forest. Ideal for honeymoons, relaxation getaways, and wellness travel.Silencio, Spanish for silence, is befitting of a destination where daily stress hushes and the sounds of nature bloom. This upscale Costa Rican hotel features five hundred private acres of carbon-offsetting tropical cloud forest, hidden waterfalls, a nature-immersed spa, yoga, hiking, meditation, and healthy organic cuisine. El Silencio Lodge & Spa is an exciting addition to Costa Rica’s best travel options.Featured by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisureas one the world’s most promising new luxury hotels (2008).

Bewildering lush landscapes are to be enjoyed in stylish comfort. El Silencio Lodge & Spa features sixteen upscale cottage suites and two 2-bedroom Villas interspersed in a tiered layout. Each suite sits on above-ground pillars to respect the forest’s natural topography and features bamboo ceiling tiles, energy-efficient lighting, and an energy-saving electric heater.Designed by Costa Rican architect, Ronald Zurcher, El Silencio’s stunning suites evoke the clean lines of the region’s rural farmhouses in a style some have dubbed “rustic zen”. The overall effect is what visiting author Susan Crandell described as “A Castle in the Clouds” (Town & Country Magazine, Sep 09). All Suites feature privacy, premium amenities, a viewing deck with rocking chairs, an enticing outdoor whirlpool tub, and spectacular mountain or river vistas. Top-tier personal care products are selected for both their body nourishing and eco-friendly qualities. A king-sized bed sits across floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors and is outfitted with luxurious linens and a cloud-top mattress. Twin day-beds with end tables set a perfect lounging area and double as sleeping arrangements for up to two extra people.

The recently built (August 2013) 2-bedroom Villas offer one room with King bed, a second room with 2 full beds, fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, a cozy gas fireplace and a private outdoor whirlpool tub which looks out into the garden. There is a gorgeous viewing deck which is perfect for relaxing and unwinding.Both bedrooms feature flat-screen televisions with satellite TV and there is also complimentary Wifi.
