Sarapiquis Rainforest Lodge

About the Lodge

Sarapiquis Rainforest Lodge is more than a hotel, it is a total experience. It was built as a 15th century Pre-Columbian village. Due to its outstanding concept in ecotourism and cultural indigenous conservation, it is an internationally rewarded model in tourism.

This Ecolodge boasts exquisite decor, with antiques, garden fresh flowers, and an overall Hispanic Colonial and Indigenous atmosphere. The restaurant and its romantic terrace reveal sweeping views of the Sarapiqui River and the Rainforest below and the inviting Botos Waterfall and Pool, only 15 yards away.  Moreover, you can marvel at our unique archaeological park “Alma Ata” with centuries old tombs, our Museum of Indigenous Cultures with its fabulous collection and its Rainforest Film Theater, and our botanical garden “Chester’s Field” with its valuable collection of indigenous herbs.

About the Rooms

The architecture of the rooms is inspired by the indigenous pre-Columbian construction techniques of the region.  The round Palenques are covered by a thatched roof resembling the Indigenous houses.

This Palenque structure is central to the SarapiquiS concept: the story of nature and its relation to mankind.  Moreover, the circular design symbolizes the circle of life, an intricate link between the cycles of the biodiversity from within rainforest.

The rooms are incorporated in five huge Palenque structures (32 rooms), and also in one semi Palenque structure where the Air Conditioned rooms are loated (8 rooms).

Like an inverted flower, the five Palenque or guest units are divided into eight spacious and deluxe rooms, jointed within the turret reaching an impressive height of 15 meters.  All the units are located midst the lush gardens and orchards of the property.  Many of the rooms have an outstanding view of the rainforest canopy; while others are nestled in the bright and fragrant gardens.

With a harmonious decor of earth tones, natural lime stone, and antique or artisan made furniture, guests will enjoy the comfortable beds, private bath, ceiling fan or A/C,  and safe deposit box.  Outside every room, a covered terrace invites each guest to enjoy the natural surroundings.
