Arenal Lodge


Hotels Eco Lodges and Cabins

Located right in front of the Volcano Arenal the main building of the Hotel Arenal Lodge is perched on a mountainside near the lake Arenal. As the hotel is in the middle of a 2000 acres private land it is surrounded by hundreds of birds and wildlife. The 50 bedrooms with private bath and hot shower are comfortable and clean with cable TV, telephone, coffee maker, hair dryer, and a breathtaking view of the Arenal Volcano.

The Hotel Arenal Lodge is one of the oldest in la Fortuna, Costa Rica, and has been recently renovated although always keeping its contemporary mountain lodge style offering comfort and relaxation.

Arenal Lodge is perfect for families with kids as there are many free activities inside the grounds as different walking trails, butterfly observatory garden, bicycles, playground, playstation, kids room, and with a small fee a horseback riding tour. The swimming pool and the 3 hot water jacuzzis are a complement to the gym and sauna where the guests can enjoy it night and day. Honeymooners have special suites with private jacuzzi where massages can be made in their own room.

The lobby has two fire places to warm up cold nights while savouring some tea or wine. Free high speed internet is also available in the lobby.

There are different types of room to choose from: Suite Matrimonial, Master Suites, Junior Suites, Family Suites, and the Superior rooms. They all have view to the volcano except the cozy Standards near the lobby.

The Arenal Lodge is the safest place to observe the eruptions of the Volcano Arenal and it is perfect as the lava can be seen from both side of the mountain where it flows.

Tours are of great variety around the hotel including the Hanging Bridges of Arenal which are right next door. Sport fishing or just a boat ride to appreciate the view of the volcano from the water while observing the birds flying is the specialty of Arenal Lodge which has its own boats and marina by the lake Arenal.

Combine your hotel with tours while having the Arenal Volcano in front of you. Arenal Lodge is a place to visit in Costa Rica.

The fine restaurant decorated with wood and pictures of the volcano offers an international menu prepared by professional chefs and the service is done in a very friendly Costa Rican way. The Arenal Volcano stands right in front of the restaurant which is located in front of a forest where wild animals can be seen in their natural habitat. Dozens of different birds can be seen during breakfast or lunch time. At night the possibility to see the eruption from the volcano makes dining an exciting experience. The menu uses organic food whenever possible and we are recommended by many tour agents in the area as our location is quite touristic and unique to appreciate nature and the volcano at the same time.

The famous movie 'Spy Kids' number two was filmed in the area and the artists and crew stayed at Arenal Lodge. Also the 'Congo' had its main stars at Arenal Lodge during their filmation. The scenery from the hotel is just spetacular even when the volcano is covered with clouds. The hotel is in the middle of a rain forest maintaining the vegetation green and rich all year around making it possible to the butterflies, birds and wild animals to stay in this area full time.
