This was by far our favourite place we stayed at in Costa Rica. It is beautifully decorated, clean and charming. Isabelle and Elizabeth are great hosts and we will definitely miss their little zoo!! We even wanted to extend but unfortunately they were fully booked. Would highly recommend it to anyone and this is definitely a place of a very... More

First impression is WAAAUUW, this is a piece of paradise. The hosts, Isabelle and Elisabeth made us feel perfectly welcome. The setting is amazing. The rooms are very well decorated, very tasteful. We were very happy to learn that dinner could be ordered in house and I am very happy we tried that. Boy, this lady knows how to cook!... More

Kenaki Lodge I went there for two nites and I ended staying for three, awesome place, it is quite far from Cahuita but nothing you can't resolve with a rented bicycle, the place is very quiet, actually at night you can hear the howler monkeys. People there are nice, EXCELLENT breakfast, the only catch is that there is not TV... More

Hi, I'm so pleased you've spent nice holidays in Kenaki Lodge and you've stayed more time than you've planed. Effectively, there is no tv in the 3 standard rooms,but the bungalows you can also rent are full equipped and have tv with sky channels.

What a beautiful set up, modern, clean and peaceful! Isabelle, as others have said is wonderful, she didn't even flinch when helping us out with some very damp smelly laundry! Best room we stayed in on or CR holiday! Thank you!

Hi, Thanks so much for your kind message. I'm so glad you've felt well at Kenaki Lodge. Of course we have a laundry service because Costa Rica weather is hot so our guests need to change clothes often :) Hoping to hear from you soon, best regards, Isabelle More

This place is located a short drive away from the center of Cahuita, so it's a more tranquil place to stay. Walking at night isn't recommended if you don't have a GOOD flashlight. Taxi from Cahuita is cheap, so take wheels. Cabins are nice, have space and are ok clean. Kitchen equipments (like frying pans) were so dirty though, that... More

Beautiful place to go. Wonderful service and people. Great food, beautiful bedrooms. Many things to see around, I love the Playa Negra, and then a drink at the Raggae Bar... Cahuita is a place of peace in heaven Greatest time ever!

This is the third hotel that I have stayed in with my family in Cahuita and it was most definitely the best one so far. Not expecting much, we were surprised at how well organized and structured the room was. It even had a safe and laminated signs indicating bus hours and taxis. I went on official business but took...

Spend two nights at Kenaki and all I can say is that the service blew me away, Isabelle is a sweetheart and she is so detail-oriented, we felt at home right away! The place is simply spectacular, reminds us of Bali and Indonesia, the architecture is flawless, every detail is in place. The breakfast simply delicious ! Even the dogs... More

We stayed two nights in this amazing hotel. The bungallow that we originally rented had a small accident and we were upgraded to a much bigger bungallow that was available :) The owner Isabella is amazing and extremely kind.
