We are also only 20 minutes from the Poás Volcano, another must see attraction in Costa Rica.
Located on the grounds of La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park just one hour from the San José International Airport, the award winning Peace Lodge introduces its guests to a symphony of purely Costa Rican experiences celebrating the natural wonders of the rain forest and the splendid creatures that inhabit this magical environment.
The ultra upscale accommodations are uniquely themed to complement the inherent beauty of its rain and cloud forest setting and the detailed architecture exudes a natural elegance and sophistication with every room boasting a Jacuzzi tub and impressive river stone fireplace along with showers that transform into waterfalls with the turn of a knob.
Picture perfect views of the La Paz River Valley and the towering Poás Volcano complete the experience.Each and every room boasts a Jacuzzi tub and impressive river stone fireplace along with waterfall showers.
From the handcrafted canopy beds and love seats to the original stained glass and illustrated artwork you will understand the time and care put into the details of each accommodation.
To insure your enjoyment of the cool mountain weather and view of the forest and Poás Volcano, we built oversized balconies complete with rocking chairs, hammocks and custom Jacuzzi tubs.
The luxury boutique hotel experience continues with your choice of aromatherapy products and our selection of fine quality linens and robes.
Standard Guest Room
This 650 square foot room has a king size canopy bed viewing a grand river stone fireplace. The interior design of the room is only surpassed by the view from the balcony of the La Paz River Valley and the Poás Volcano. The best way to enjoy the view is from the Jacuzzi tub or swaying in the hammock on the balcony. The bathroom has an oversized mosaic tiled tub and elaborate waterfall shower.
Deluxe Guest Room
or those who desire the feel of the rain forest even when they are inside, this is the room for you. This 800 square foot room has an unbelievable garden bathroom designed for the true nature lover. A seven-foot waterfall comes to life as you soak in the Jacuzzi tub in the garden. There is also a garden shower and enclosed shower. All of this is surrounded by beautiful indoor landscaping and illuminated by a skylight.
This 1,200 square foot villa leaves nothing to be desired. First there are not one, not two, but three fireplaces to set the mood for this wonderland in the Cloud Forest. The master bedroom alone invokes thoughts of romance with its king size canopy bed set before a gas fireplace. The oversized master bathroom, complete with full Jacuzzi tub, fireplace (yes, fireplace) and waterfall shower will make you wonder why you aren't staying longer.
Villa Lago is the newest addition to Peace Lodge and is great for large families or couples travelling together. It hosts a living and dining area with a full kitchen, a large master bedroom and bath, a guest room with adjoining bath and a smaller bedroom with two single beds for children. Both marbled baths have Jacuzzi Tubs and there is a separate entrance from the living room in the guest bath.

All guests are welcome to enjoy the park before it opens and after it closes, the optimal bird watching and wildlife viewing times. We are a great option as a bird watching hotel in the greater San José area because the rain forest literally surrounds the hotel and we have many hard to see species visit our feeders.
Guided walking tours are available, but we suggest booking these at the same time you reserve your room. Guests will be greeted in our new reception with a postcard view of the La Paz River Valley. Complimentary internet access is available to all of our guests in the rooms, restaurants, reception and almost the entire park.
