Innovative and sustainable, this contemporary, open-air, hilltop lodge in the shadow of Tenorio is stunning. The 18 rooms are small but stylish, with wooden shutters that open onto immobilizing vistas. Winding through labyrinthine gardens, a trail is laid with geotextile (no more muddy shoes!), making for soundless hiking and prime birdwatching. The price includes meals at the excellent gourmet restaurant.
Hot water comes from solar power, and cooking gas is partially produced by kitchen waste. There’s even an ingenious ‘tropical hot bath’ heated by burning salvaged wood. The lodge is located about halfway down the new access road from Bijagua to Tenorio, and about 4km east of town.
Celeste Mountain Lodge is located 4 km from Bijagua and 5 km from the entrance to Tenorio Volcano National Park. It offers panoramic mountain views, included meals and free wired internet in public areas. Featuring minimalist décor and contemporary design, all rooms offer superb mountain views. Each has a private bathroom with a hairdryer and shower. Panoramic views can be enjoyed from the bar terrace and restaurant. Innovative Tica-Fusion cuisine is served as a part of the room rates, and special diet menus can be requested. Free parking is available and the tour desk can arrange excursions. Cañas is 40 km away and you can drive to San José International Airport in 3 hours. Arenal Volcano is 2 hour’s drive away.
