El Silencio LodgeSan Jose & The Central Valley, Costa Rica
Showcasing the best of Costa Rica’s tropical cloud forest and rugged mountains, El Silencio Lodge & Spa is an eco-luxury hotel located just 90 minutes from San José International Airport. Set in a 500 acre private forest reserve, and designed by Robert Zurcher (one of Costa Rica’s most prominent architects), this upscale property offers 12 spacious suites and two family villas, with two more villas planned.
El Silencio is a perfect retreat for those seeking respite from the stress of daily city life. Discover hiking trails to hidden waterfalls, a fabulous semi open air spa set in the middle of the forest, yoga, horseback riding, authentic cultural experiences, and farm-to-table cuisine. We recommend a walk up to the meticulously kept organic vegetable and herb gardens and trout ponds which supply the kitchen with daily fresh produce.
Las Ventanas Restaurant offers innovative modern Costa Rican cuisine which can be enjoyed from the large outdoor deck overlooking the Gorridon River, while in the evening, a bonfire in the dramatic fire pit warms the atmosphere.
El Silencio is an award-winning example of Costa Rica’s eco-friendly boutique hotels, which we fully endorse.
