Costa Rica

  • A welcoming and cosy first or last night of a trip
  • Located in a private forest reserve.
  • Magnificent views in all directions.
  • Small and modern with exceptional service.
  • Close to national parks but off the beaten track.

Inspired by the rich coffee culture of the region, each nook of the property has been well thought out and planned with careful attention to detail. The bungalows resemble the traditional Coffee Receiving Stations known locally as "Recibidores". They are bright and airy, with contemporary modern decor, and the floor to ceiling windows allow you to enjoy the fantastic views over the valley. Relax on your modern balcony overlooking a private coffee garden surrounded by cloudforest. From here the view of the morning sunrise over the Irazu Volcano will let the natural light fill your suite and awaken you gently to the beautiful surroundings.

The main building of the lodge houses a fusion cuisine restaurant, mixing local flavours with international dishes, a terrace cafe and a friendly bar where guests have the opportunity to mix with locals, chat and learn about their lives and traditions. The windows of the main building are also floor to ceiling maximising on the views. 4 of Costa Rica's volcanoes can be seen from here, and in the distance the Gulf of Nicoya. Part of the experience is just sitting and soaking up the scenery.

There is a range of activities to keep you occupied. There area guided walks in the private cloud-forest reserve, enjoy a coffee tour and sample some excellent coffee. Enjoy bird-watching or go for something more fast paced such as horse riding or zip-lining through the canopy, a fantastic experience. Finish that off with a cooking class to master some local cuisine, perhaps with a twist. Each day, the experience of Chayote Lodge starts as the sun rises in the east, progresses across the sky during the day and finally settles with a beautiful sunset over the Pacific before it all starts again the next morning - it's a stunning place to spend some time soaking up the Costa Rica vibe.

Client Rating for Costa Rica 5/5 from 216 reviews

A fantastic first night stop. Views to die for. And the opportunity for short walks in the area to get aclimatised the next morning. Really pleasant staff
