This lodge is such a unique experience. It is convenient to tourist attractions in La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano area, but it is an attraction all its own. The farm tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. Steven, the farm's owner, is incredibly knowledgeable and a great host. It is not very often that... More

Self sustaining farm. Thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fruits and vegetables served daily. Friendly, accommodating staff. Very clean rooms. Certainly could hear at night the environmental sounds. Steep walking paths. There is a golf cart to move you about if necessary. Can loose yourself, with the no stress. Showers, toilets,, expected accommodations for rain forest environment.

My son and I just visited this quiet, serene bio dynamic farm and loved every minute of it. We arrived just in time for dinner which was fresh and wonderful. There are only a few rooms and separate cabins so you get to meet like-kind folks very easilly. The accomodations had two beds and were very clean. There is a... More

A beautiful, eco friendly environment. Great very high treehouse with outrageous views. Our large family group booked 3 bungalows and all 4 rooms of the lodge. Below the 4 rooms is a communal open air area, perfect for our group gatherings. There's a kitchen, bar, wifi, computer, seating, tables and lots of room. Who says you can't party on New... More

My family (two adults two teens) spent three nights at Finca Luna Nueva, a working organic farm in the rain forest just a few hours from San Jose. We toured the farm with the owner Steven, a walking encyclopedia on tropical plant usage and biodynamic culture. Ishmael led us on a night walk to discover frogs and insects. We lounged... More

We came to the lodge with many family members. Our immediate family shared family bungalow #6. The setting was lovely nestled up in the rain forest. We were able to see many birds along with sloths. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed being away from the city life and noise, but also the free WiFi! The pool... More

Hi, the property is very pretty and offers some nice walks. The staff are also kind and attentive, but I feel that the hotel is overpriced and disappointing for a few reasons. The food, in particular, was not very good. Dinner was too expensive for the quality and the breakfast was less than stellar. Given that the setting was a... More

The entire farm(lodging, dining, seed sanctuary, spa, personnel) were 5 star. My husband and I are both interested in organic gardening. We found not only organic, but biodynamic methods being used at Finca Luna Nueva. We spent a wonderful 2 weeks in beautiful Costa Rica.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Luna Nueva Lodge is a sustainable rainforest eco-lodge hotel, offering an intimate experience of primary rainforest together with a certified organic biodynamic farm and also we have Certification for Sustainable Tourism in Costa Rica. N 2003 we decided to take our promotion of sustainable practices to the next level by building several beautiful eco-lodges using fallen timber from the farm. Since then we have added a 50 foot high observation tower, a solar heated Jacuzzi, an ozonated swimming pool, and a handicapped accessible rainforest trail. Now you can experience the Costa Rican rainforest, learn about our farm's sustainable practices and relax in our rustic yet luxurious accommodations. Walk through well-groomed rain forest trails on our guided farm tours and hikes, eat gourmet meals prepared from our fresh organic garden produce, and witness the majesty of the Arenal Volcano. For adventure activity enthusiasts, we are located only 30 minutes from La Fortuna, the adventure capital of Costa Rica, and home of world famous Arenal Volcano. La Fortuna is a must see destination for anyone seeking a thrill, and our experienced staff will be more than happy to schedule all of your activities and tours for you. With 14 rooms and 40 beds, accommodations can be made for both the traveler looking for an intimate getaway as well as housing for large groups and conferences. ... more   less
