Cielo Lodge Costa Rica Hotel

Costa Rica

Relaxing in an infinity pool that overlooks Golfito Bay, a sheltered nook on Costa Rica’s western Pacific coast, it’s hard to imagine a better place to lose yourself than Cielo Lodge. Set in a 153ha private reserve, surrounded by rainforest, rivers, waterfalls and, of course, the big blue, while you have the small, characterful port town of Golfito just down the road, at the lodge you’re lost within the natural wonders of the world. Forests with trees 45m high, myriad tropical birds and wildlife, this is luxe forest bathing; then there are mangroves to explore, dolphins and whales to watch, jungles to hike through and indigenous communities to discover. Back at the lodge, suites are delicately pared back, ensuring you maximise the reason you’re here – to take in the stunning forest or ocean views while lounging in a hammock.
