Shawandha Lodge

This hotel offers peaceful and relaxing eco-friendly accommodations in the heart of the South Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. With 14 tranquil rainforest bungalows nestled amongst the living tropical rainforest and beach environment, Hotel Shawandha Lodge has a "neo-primitive" concept with an artistic combination of noble woods, bamboo and palm, reinforcing the impression of being "at one with nature". The lodge offers a swimming pool as well.

Located just 4 hours from San Jose and 6 kilometers from Puerto Viejo, the hotel is the ideal tropical rainforest beach resort and it is characterized for its tranquility and the hospitality of its people, not to mention the exquisite and unique biodiversity (about 100 species of birds and over 200 types of flora). The lodge sits on a 5 acres tract of secondary forest - preserving it's own eco system of wildlife. It is located 200 meters away from the pristine beach of Playa Chiquita, a white sand and clear water beach that can only be access by trails. Playa Chiquita is an active member of the Blue Flag Program, which works towards sustainable development at beaches.
