Located at Bajos Del Toro, in the Poas Volcano National Park area, just over an hour from San Jose, El Silencio Lodge & Spa enjoys a 500-acre private reserve blessed with gently flowing creeks and waterfalls.
The 14 luxury suites offer river or cloud forest views and feature a private viewing deck, whirlpool, gas fireplace, complimentary mini-bar, and premium amenities, including Aromas Para el Alma personal care products. The king-sized bed is outfitted with luxurious sheets and a cloud-top mattress. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors guarantee amazing vistas of the cloud forest. Twin day beds with end tables set a perfect lounging and reading area, doubling as sleeping arrangements for quadruple occupancy.
The restaurant offers a varied menu emphasizing local flavours with fresh and organic ingredients and the property has now been recognised by Relais & Chateaux, making it the first hotel to be awarded Relais & Chateaux status in Central America.
On-site activities for visitors include the tree-planting ceremony, picking organic veggies from the in-property garden, bird watching and the Elementos trail, a holistic journey through particular sensory experiences.
