Warm & friendly family run eco-lodge surrounded by rainforest.
ModestA good option for the budget savvy traveller.
This little gem of a lodge is ideal for those who want the simple life in the heart of nature. There is a strong conservation message here. The lodge was originally a farm that over the years has been regenerated to rainforest. The rooms and buildings were all carefully thought out so they have minimum impact on the environment. The bungalows are all comfortable with air conditioning and a ceiling fan. They have bright soft furnishings and some have beautiful stained-glass windows letting in colourful light during the day. The verandas are complete with hammock and chairs – the perfect spot for a bit of R&R during the day while you read a book or just soak up the sounds of the forest. The main area has a small pool for cooling dips, a restaurant serving tasty home cooked recipes, a games room and educational library. What more do you need?
