Warm, friendly staff meet you with smiles and water in stemmed glasses on your arrival, setting the mood for your visit to this beautiful Osa Peninsula retreat. Our thatched bungalow and it's porch view of the ocean coast was a sanctuary in the rainforest with surrounding howler monkeys, distant waves and bird song background. The food was delicious, nourishing in...

Luna Lodge is the most relaxing, tranquil place I've experienced. A new, surreal experience this time was to witness the full moon setting (@5:30 am) and the sun rising while on on the calm, reflective waters of the lagoon in a kayak. The memory of birds and monkeys waking up to a new day is beyond description. Then to have...

I didn't stay at Luna Lodge, but I went for some yoga, a massage and lunch. Lana was really lovely, as was her mother and her entire staff. My massage and my meal were top notch. The property was really beautiful. I went on the waterfall hike and really enjoyed my morning. You can tell a lot of love and...

The Osa Peninsula is one of the most gloriously lush and living places on this planet, and Luna Lodge was the perfect place to stay while experiencing it. We stayed one of the tents, and waking the first morning in a tent to the cries of howler monkeys and the screams of macaws in the early morning was one of...

This was my sixth trip to magnificent Costa Rica. I found Luna Lodge, on the Osa Peninsula via Google. "Per unit area, the Osa Peninsula holds possibly the highest natural diversity on earth. The National Geographic magazine described the Osa Peninsula as the most biologically intense place on earth. I was searching for an eco-lodge. This place was perfect for...

My sister and I spent a heavenly 7 days at Luna Lodge. It is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth I have ever had the great fortune to see.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Secluded in the tropical rain forest bordering Corcovado National Park, Luna Lodge is a unique resort described by many as "...a piece of true paradise". Its appeal is, not only, its natural beauty and environment, where the heliconia hang three feet long, and the howler monkeys wake you in the morning, but also, its ambiance. The owners' passion for the preservation of the forest is ever present, and the attentive courtesy, friendly staff always serve "con mucho gusto... with pleasure". ... more   less
