A tropical wilderness of 150 acres
At Luna Lodge a dream came true. Over 75 acres of the lodge's property is primary rainforest and the hotel is part of that Private Reserve bordering the Corcovado National Park. This shows a stong engagement, love and respect to nature. From here you may spot hundreds of rare bird species such as the scarlet macaw, red-legged honeycreeper, and slaty-tailed trogon, exotic creatures, like coatis, tayras, and all four species of monkeys found in Costa Rica. There are waterfalls, one with a refreshing wading pool less than a ten minute walk from the hotel, and a few minutes further down the river valley, higher falls thunder down from over 40 feet.
Vast gardens surround the Luna Lodge and bungalows, a wonderful blend of natural landscaping and organic agricultural abundance featuring fruit trees with mangos, water apples, papayas, bananas, china fruits, mandarins, oranges, lemons, cacao, avocados, and cashews. You'll smell the aromas of ylang-ylang, frangipani, and night-blooming jasmine and edible herbs and spices, hot and sweet chilies, turmeric, oregano, basil, mustard, ginger, cilantro, and many more.
The centerpiece of Luna Lodge is the massive, traditionally constructed rancho, housing the restaurant, bar, office, kitchen, and a small gift shop with a towering roof of thatched palm fronds. The wooden decks are ideal for morning yoga, nature observation, star gazing, or just enjoying the view into the rainforest.
