ORIGINS Luxury Lodge 

Remote escape that’s as exclusive as it is eco-conscious

Join parrots, toucans and monkeys high up on the mountainside for an experience of a lifetime in one of Costa Rica’s most breathtaking settings.

Deep immersion into nature and wellbeing is the irresistible draw at ORIGINS Luxury Lodge. There are wildlife tours and waterfall hikes. Yoga in the shala, horse riding through the jungle and a Michelin-starred chef overseeing the organic superfood restaurant. Each swish and sustainable green-roofed lodge has its own fire-heated plunge pool and just as lush is the valley-view infinity pool suspended over the canopy.

Why we love ORIGINS Luxury Lodge

  • With just six lodges and one three-bedroom villa this is a true escape into peaceful solitude

  • Skyview Bar’s front-row seats to surreal sunsets over the high valley jungles

  • See the riches of the rainforest up close with wildlife tours and nighttime nature walks

  • From yoga and breathwork therapy to plant-based spa treatments, wellness is a top priority here

Bamboo, stone, local woods and coconut husk chandeliers lend an organic feel to open-sided El Salto, overseen by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Luc L’Hourre. The restaurant merges seamlessly with Skyview Bar complete with a swinging sofa, twinkling lights and a billiard table.

El Salto
With so very few guests at any one time, dining at El Salto feels exclusive and private. This magical spot has a menu to match with ingredients plucked straight from the Lodge’s organic gardens – edible flowers are a highlight – farm and lake. Breakfast brings house made honeys and cheeses to the table whilst dinner is a creative, artistic and thoroughly memorable multi-course affair.

Skyview Bar
Watermelon smoothies, dark rum cocktails, Guaro sours, Argentinian red wines and French bubbles, you can taste it all at Skyview Bar. With an expert sommelier on hand, discover new wine pairings or pick your favourite from the cellar.

What's included

Breakfast at El Salto.

A tropical tonic for the soul, the Laka-Tii Spa Suite is available to reserve by the hour. You can choose to indulge in spa treatments including sea shell massages and cranial therapy or simply relax on the terrace and dip in the Jacuzzi.

ORIGINS Luxury Lodge is an advocate of transformative experiences and offers bespoke breathwork classes designed to quieten any noise, connect you with your surrounds and centre your senses.

An open-air yoga shala offers daily classes and private sessions, and a scenic jogging trail winds through the rainforest hillside.
