El Silencio Lodge & Spa at night

Nestled in the rainforest near the Poás Volcano, El Silencio Lodge & Spa is secluded and tranquil. Created as a luxury retreat, the lodge is perfect for guests who want to spend their mornings zip-lining or hiking, and their afternoons being pampered. The 500-acre private property is perfect for honeymoons and family vacations.

Don't check out without spending at least one day at Escencia Spa. This wellness sanctuary uses only the most natural ingredients to pamper you until you feel rejuvenated in mind, body and spirit. Spend time in the Conical Room to take in the Costa Rican forest's natural energy before taking a class on the yoga deck. Afterward, experience a Swedish massage, aromatherapy, a body scrub, a hair mask and so much more. Facials, body waxing, manicures and pedicures are also common.

After you feel rejuvenated, gather the rest of your party and head to one of the lodge's two exquisite restaurants for dinner. Las Ventanas Restaurant offers local flavors grown from the resort's own mini-farm. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for the perfect view of the rainforest as you relax and have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Also serving three meals a day is the Hierbabueana Restaurant. The perfect casual atmosphere for families and people of all ages, this eatery offers family-style seating for its simple, homemade meals. No matter which dining option you choose, you can rest assured that you'll receive organic, nutrient-rich food, including vegetables, herbs and spices, fresh eggs and free-range chicken. Breakfast is included in the rates and cooked to order.

Free wireless internet and coffee and tea are available in the common area. Childcare is available upon request. El Silencio Lodge & Spa is a smoke-free establishment.

"Hi, my name is Eduardo and I visited this particular place in Costa Rica couple of weeks ago. Loved the landscapes and waterfalls inside the property. Food here was amazing, chocolate brownie is a must. What I liked the most was the little details such as flavored water in my room and hot water bags inside my bed. Having a tico coffee in rooms terrace will be unforgetable!"

"My husband and I really loved this place. The location was scenic and peaceful. Each private bungalow had your own balcony and jacuzzi, which we used often! They perform turn down service each night, with a nice heated water bottle in the bed to keep your toes warm. Really nice touch.
There was some nice hikes around the property, especially the one to the 3 separate falls (each one got better and better). The restaurant served excellent food and wine and were very catering to my gluten allergy. We did a couple tours including horseback riding, and a night hike. The Horseback riding was spectacular and I highly recommend it. The night hike was disappointing. The guide did not really find anything and it seemed he didn't really know where to look. Not a lot of animals in this area, but it is the perfect stop for relaxation and serenity. We got a massage at the spa, and I wanted to bring the masseuse home back to the states, as she was superb (her name was Jennifer too). You can drink the water on this property, and they are very eco-friendly, which we appreciate. Definitely would go here again. "
