Peace Lodge

Located just an hour from San Jose’s international airport, the Peace Lodge is set high in the cloud forest and in the famous La Paz Waterfall Gardens. The whimsical rooms are just the start of what makes this property an award-winning, must see gem. The spectacular waterfall gardens and an abundance of rescued wildlife create the perfect one-to-two night stay at the start or end of your Costa Rica experience.

The Peace Lodge is located high up in the mountains and has just 18 rooms, 8 Standard Rooms, 8 Deluxe Rooms, and two Villas. This boutique hotel is designed to bring the outdoors in with luxurious rustic architecture, waterfall stone showers, and large beamed canopy beds. It is the perfect place for couples, honeymooners, and families with children who want to see the wonders that highlight Costa Rica in one location. All the rooms include bathrobe and slippers, flat screen TV, DVD player with free DVD library, stereo, minibar, coffee maker, ceiling fan, and in room safe. The 650 sq. ft. Standard Rooms feature a canopy king bed or two full beds facing a stone gas fireplace and a private balcony with outdoor Jacuzzi for two. The bathroom is nearly as spacious as the bedroom and features a mosaic-tiled bathtub and stone waterfall shower. The Deluxe Rooms offer all the same amenities as the Standard Rooms but also feature a second Jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. The Peace Lodge also offers a 2-bedroom/2-bathroom Moncarch Villa and a 3-bedroom Villa Lago for larger groups.

Allow a full day to explore the grounds while at The Peace Lodge. As a guest at the hotel, you have complimentary access to five miles of walking trails, a man made trout lake, ten different animal exhibits, and the famous series of five natural waterfalls that give the property its name. The wildlife exhibits include monkeys, sloths, big cats, serpentarium, ranarium (frogs), orchids, hummingbird garden, aviary where you can hand feed toucans, and one of the largest butterfly gardens in the world. The property also has four restaurants, a cozy bar with fireplace, and in-room spa services.
