Monarch Villa (1 bedroom plus loft, 2 full baths, accommodates up to
Although it is named after a butterfly, it really should be called our Honeymoon
Suite. Since opening, we’ve had many honeymooners enjoy our villa and
we believe caused a few others to propose (including the owner of Waterfall
Gardens). The 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. The villa is complete
with a luxurious living room with a two-story fireplace and a second floor loft
with a queen size bed, a single bed and full bathroom. If that isn’t enough
there is a kitchenette and dining area with refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave
oven. But, the villa would not be complete without a view of the La Paz River
Valley and the Poás Volcano and how best to enjoy them but from the Jacuzzi
tub on the balcony. But don’t worry, when you’ve had enough ‘nature’
for the day, the villa is well equipped with a stereo system with speakers in
every room and satellite TV in both the living area and master bedroom.
Deluxe Hotel Room (accommodates 2 guests-possible rollaway for children)
For those who want to feel 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 are soaking in the Jacuzzi tub in the garden. There is also a garden shower
and indoor shower. All of this is surrounded by beautiful indoor landscaping
and illuminated by a skylight. The room also has a Jacuzzi tub and hammock on
the balcony for those picture perfect star gazing nights. A grand gas fireplace
to view from the king size canopy bed makes the room complete. There is also
satellite TV, stereo system, refrigerator, and coffee maker.
Hotel Room (accommodates 2 guests-possible rollaway for children)
This 650 square foot room has a king size canopy bed viewing a grand gas 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. There
is also satellite TV, stereo system, refrigerator, and coffee maker.
Guests will wake up in the rainforest to the sound of waterfalls. The park
includes 3.5 kilometers of paved trails that showcase 5 magnificent waterfalls
and a kilometer of frontage on the La Paz River. Along this path you will find
spectacular gardens with information about the plants and their peculiarities.
Our Hummingbird Garden attracts 23 of the 57 species of hummingbirds found in
Costa Rica. You will find more species of hummingbirds here and more information
about hummingbirds than in any other location in Costa Rica. The birds have
become incredibly tame so you can approach within inches and sometimes even
touch them. Our educational exhibits describe in detail the behavior and physical
characteristics of these amazing creatures.
The Butterfly Observatory is a magnificent enclosure and the largest of its
type in the world. In the on-site laboratory you will be fascinated by your
close encounter with these insects as they develop through their lifecycle.
You will watch butterflies being born from their pupa and you will be able to
handle and release them into their first flight.
We also have many bird feeders along the trails to attract wildlife. We offer
private guided tours for bird watching, and the guests can even work with the
butterflies; collecting eggs, feeding the caterpillars, and processing pupas.
Interesting alternative for something different and close to nature. Rustic
and exotic lodge without luxury.
