We are is thrilled to spearhead grand opening programs for hotels across the US and Caribbean in 2021, including:
CieloLodge - Opened January 15, 2021
Situated on a lush green mountain just behind Golfito overlooking the Golfo Dulce, Cielo Lodge is set amidst 380 sprawling acres of primary and secondary rainforest. This brand new eco-lodge was designed with a modern and minimalist approach—celebrating the region and all it offers. Staying at Cielo Lodge is an incredibly intimate experience; 6 Canopy Suites accommodate between 2-4 people, for a total lodge occupancy of just 12-24guests. Only 30 minutes from the town of Golfito, the lodge feels an entire world away. All are 660 square feet and feature a king size bed, a full-size sofa bed, an indoor and outdoor shower, and an expansive terrace/ outdoor living room. Cielo Lodge’s suites are screened, and have an open, airy feeling—encapsulating a true jungle atmosphere. There are no glass windows—simply walls and screens. With privacy and “pod travel” in mind, CieloLodge created the Rainforest Sanctuary Buyout Package—drawing small groups of friends, family and loved ones to experience Cielo Lodge in its entirety. Package includes access to the full grounds, transfers and all meals and activities within one flat daily rate for six suites (beginning $5,832). For those who book the buyout package, CieloLodge creates customized programming based on the group’s interests—e.g.,wellness or environmental pursuits, surfing retreats, and more. Advance planning and consultation is required prior to arrival. Activities and Wellness Programming are abundant for guests at Cielo Lodge. Daily itineraries include morning and evening naturalist-led rainforest walks, detox hikes, sunrise yoga, Shinrin Yoku / Forest Bathing, private in-room holistic massages, private surfing expeditions to Pavones, mangrove tours, dolphin and whale watching and much more.
Sustainability is an important and key aspect of Cielo Lodge’s ethos. We are committed to sustainability and to protecting the amazing natural resources that surround our property. We use solar and micro-hydro to feed a battery bank, which then feeds our lodge. We are part of the FONAFIFO Program, a government program designed to preserve the Costa Rican rainforest. We have planted over 4,000 trees—fruit trees to native hardwoods and use bio gardens as a secondary septic treatment. We additionally use biodegradable soaps and cleaning supplies. We have partnered with several local NGOs who are focused on protecting the environment (e.g., Osa Ecology which rescues sea turtles, and conducts research on dolphins and whales, and Osa Conservation, which is tracking all of the wildlife in the area through a complex system of cameras and audio studies).
