Arenal Observatory Lodge

OBS LODGE 1.jpg    Obs main-lodge.jpg
The lodge crowns a ridge top overlooking Arenal Lake and the looming volcano 1.7 miles away and is surrounded by 870 acres of private forest and farmland. Nearly 500 acres are protected reserve with virgin rainforest covering one third of the land. Arenal Lake is the largest in Costa Rica with excellent sport fishing.Arenal Observatory Lodge sits in a private nature reserve in the heart of one of Costa Rica’s numerous natural areas. Rich volcanic soil supports primary and secondary rainforest. Waterfalls and crystalline rivers offer sparkling jungle refreshment. A well marked and manicured trail system traverses the property and provides easy access to the breathtaking natural beauty. 

There is also a paved, wheelchair-accessible trail that extends 800 meters into the rainforest and provides excellent views of the volcano. The lodge offers daily complimentary walks by resident naturalist guides.(A reforestation project guarantees healthy forest in perpetuity for future generations)

The Arenal Observatory Lodge features 37 rooms in a four-building spread on the property. Five rooms are fully equipped for disabled travelers, with rooms, bathrooms, hallways, parking areas and even the new swimming pool designed accordingly. Most have a view of the volcano and all have verdant garden surroundings. Everywhere one feels the volcano’s commanding presence.   

 The gardens and landscaping are extravagant with color. Natural flowering plants and shrubs were carefully chosen to attract wildlife. Jewel-toned hummingbirds dart from heliconia to oleander and brilliant butterflies adorn the blooms.
Other attractions include a waterfall, just a short hike away, which cascades into the cool forest depths. A well maintained path leads guests to this magical spot. 
The mysterious emerald lagoon at Cerro Chato Volcano fills the now extinct crater. A challenging hike from the lodge takes guests through primary forest to a waiting canoe for a dreamy paddle on the lake’s mirror surface.   

 Birders will be particularly gratified during their visit. The diverse habitats surrounding the lodge shelter nearly 370 species. Guests can see birds everywhere. 

An Infinity swimming pool was added for jungle refreshment. Tiled in cobalt blue, it melts into the rainforest beyond. A sunken bubbling jacuzzi provides soothing relaxation beneath a glass gazebo that frames the volcano’s peak against a starry sky. 

A host of activities await the spirited adventurer. Mountain biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, hanging bridges, butterfly gardens, canopy tours, fishing, horseback riding and more are all available. But, one needn’t travel far to feel nature’s magic. It’s all around you!
