Imagine this... You are gazing across a deep river gorge just in time to catch the first rays of sunlight crowning the canopy of the primary rainforest across the valley with a hue of gold, your senses being teased gently to life as you sip on fresh pineapple juice on the deck of a huge rancho. As the mists below begin to part to offer you a glimpse of the blue Pacific in the near distance, you hear the rhythms of the rainforest, an orchestra led by the wild brazen troop of howler monkeys only a few hundred yards away. Although you are beginning to rouse yourself a bit in preparation for the active day ahead, the sloth in the grand mayo tree off to your left hasn't moved a muscle. Typical. It makes you think of some people you know…
This is a reality on the 150 acres of tropical wilderness that is Luna Lodge, Lana Wedmore's personal dream come true. Over 75 acres of the lodge's property is primary virgin rainforest. You can spot literally hundreds of rare and beautiful bird species such as the scarlet macaw, red-legged honeycreeper, and slaty-tailed trogon. You will also likely encounter exotic creatures, such as coatis, tayras, and the four species of monkeys found in Costa Rica. There are year-round waterfalls on the property itself, one with a swift flowing chute and refreshing wading pool less than a ten minute walk from the bungalows. Just a few minutes further down the river valley, among a riverbed full of brilliant white boulders, a much higher set of falls thunders down from over 30 feet; you can stand under the spray and look down at how nature is realigning and reharmonizing the river's elements.
Each bungalow provides two double beds, a private deck, and a private bathroom with shower and bathtub. The bungalows overlook vast tropical rainforest, and a honeymoon suite is also available with a king size bed. There are 8 Bungalows
The hacienda-styled rooms are a new addition to the lodge where we have three additional private rooms available closer to the main lodge. The view is spectacular and the toucans love to visit the neighboring trees in the afternoon. There are 3 Hacienda rooms - The spacious colonial-style hacienda rooms have private baths.
The completely enclosed "nature-lover" tents have two single beds and a balcony overlooking the canopy of the rain forest. There are 5 tents.
The restaurant, “El Eclipse Total”, is open all day and features international cuisine. The dining area is open and spacious, affording comfort for dozens of guests. There's even space for an occasional rainforest dance! The gift shop offers not only necessities and souvineers, but also an interesting array of boutique items selected from international artisans.
The Luna Spa is the perfect place to journey into your own body, mind, and spirit. It will help you inhale a little deeper and exhale your worries away as you draw on the primal energies of the Costa Rican rainforest.
Our Holistic Balance instructors can guide you on this journey by offering you total body balancing experiences such as mud wraps, massage therapy, aromatherapy, reiki, or watsu.
With over 1600 square feet of covered open-air space, the Retreat Center can accommodate large groups who wish to explore activities such as Yoga, Tai Chi, Nia, massage therapy, and aromatherapy. The solitude of the rainforest surroundings is also great for language study, creative writing, meditation, guided relaxation, vocalization, and business workshops that need meeting space- any activity that would be enhanced by solitude and privacy. Other convenient amenities include equipment storage space, two bathrooms, and a shower. In addition, our large restaurant building with a fully staffed kitchen provides ample space for meetings, workshops, and dining.
