Costa Rica: Caribbean
Hotel Shawandha Lodge 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 sits on a 5 acre tract of secondary forest – preserving its own ecosystem of wildlife. The lodge is located 200 meters away from the pristine beach of Playa Chiquita, a white sand and clear water beach that can only be accessed by trails. Playa Chiquita is an active member of the Blue Flag Program, which works towards sustainable development.
The bungalows are nestled in a splendid tropical park. Each bungalow displays a “neo-primitive” concept with an artistic combination of noble woods, bamboo and palm, as well as unique ceramic designs in each bathroom. Every bungalow has its own individual character and style. The traveler is invited to rest in the terrace hammock while contemplating the impressive vegetation, incredible variety of trees, plants and flowers with so many vibrant colors and aromas, while listening to unique sounds from toucans or sudden howlers from the little “Congo” monkeys at beaches.
