Set high on a ridge facing the spectacular volcano, the Arenal Observatory Lodge offers the adventurous traveler a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience. The lodge sits in a private nature reserve with well marked trails perfect for hiking, biking and horseback riding through the rain forest. An infinity swimming pool, tiled in cobalt blue, melts into the rain forest beyond. A sunken bubbling Jacuzzi provides soothing relaxation beneath a glass gazebo framing the volcano's peak against a starry sky. There is also a restaurant for your dining pleasure.

The lodge offers standard, Smithsonian and Junior Suites, all of which boast excellent volcano views. The walls of the Junior Suites are decorated with original ceramic paintings done by a local artist. La Casona, with a large terrace, five rooms with queen or bunk beds and two large shared bathrooms, is an excellent option for families or large groups. The White Hawk Villa is set away from the other buildings and is accessed by a short, scenic hike. The villa is also equipped with a dining room and a full kitchen.

Feedback from Travelers

Fabulous hotel at the foothills of Arenal volcano. Unfortunately we never saw it due to low cloud and almost constant rain. We were lucky enough to have the best room in the hotel with double aspect windows- over the lake and volcano. The staff each day made a beautiful arrangement with the towels for our silver wedding anniversary. Lovely buffet breakfast. Ate in the restaurant once and enjoyed happy hour. All staff lovely and helpful. Free morning guided walk through the grounds. Lots of self guided trails too. Would recommend this hotel 100%

"This was the best trip our family ever had. We got exactly what we asked for, except the hotels were much better than we expected. I’ve never felt so satisfied and cared for."
