Set in Costa Rica's central volcanic region, El Silencio Lodge and Spa will be a sanctuary for soft adventure and inspired wellness. Close to the hotel lies the town of Sarchi home to the Costa Rican oxcart also bordering the Northwest area of the Poas Volcano offering some of the most astounding scenery in Cost Rica.
El Silencio offers a 500-acre private reserve, gently flowing rivers, and hidden waterfalls as well as a full service spa in the thick of pristine tropical cloud forest. There is a Yoga platform ensconced in the lush forest for the purest mountain air and crystalline sound of flowing water. The river trimmed spa offers a beautiful selection of pampering treatments. The restaurant features simple Costa Rican traditions served with inspired flare and a savory international twist using the best local and organic ingredients. Some guests have commented that during their stay they felt like a movie star who had escaped to a secluded holiday hideout to get away from the paparazzi.

Feedback from Travelers
A wonderful and magical place. We absolutely loved it.
We really enjoyed our stay at El Silencio Spa and Retreat. Its location, up in the mountains, was a refreshing change from staying in the more humid lowlands. The grounds are beautiful with nice trails and a hummingbird garden. Our room was a nice sized cabin that was exquisitely decorated. We enjoyed sitting in the large rocking chairs on the front porch while listening to the birds and watching the misty clouds roll by. The food was amazing! Every meal was a treat! I am gluten intolerant and they brought me the most delicious rolls made of cassava. The service was excellent. Everyone was so kind and helpful. We would definitely stay there again!
INCREDIBLE. Loved, loved this place. Room was georgeous and the food was amazing. The spa was outstanding as were the hiking trails to a few different waterfalls. This was by far, the nicest place we stayed on our whole trip and a great place to end our vacation.
