Bright and cheerful lodge beside Arenal volcano. Rooms have private terraces with rocking chairs from which to drink in the extraordinary views at leisure.
The cheerful riverside Arenal Manoa lodge makes the most of its rural location and truly spectacular views of Arenal volcano, which can be seen framed by the wide private terraces of the bedrooms or simply rising up majestically above the pool and dining area.
Rooms are bright and modern, in bungalow-style buildings, with rocking chairs perfectly positioned for admiring the fantastic volcano views. There is plenty of space and light, and a natural ambiance enhanced by plants and tropical touches.
There is a restaurant and a wet bar beside the swimming pool and Jacuzzi in the garden. You can also have a massage in the comfort of your room or in the spa and luxuriate in the healing waters of the separate thermal pools that are fed by the property's own volcanic hot springs.
The hotel has its own dairy farm on the premises which you can visit for an insight into traditional Costa Rican agriculture, and other excursions include visits to Arenal volcano, forest hikes, white-water rafting, and horse riding to La Fortuna waterfalls.
