The private reserve sits just a short drive away from Hotel Belmar (owned by the same environmentalists), within a region known for its biodiversity. The reserve has been outfitted with trails, gardens, platforms and suspension bridges, all in a way to protect both guests and the environment while limiting environmental impact. Guests can rope climb, meditate, wildlife watch and enjoy a picnic above the trees — everything designed to bring harmony to visitors, in harmony with the environment.


If you book a forest immersion experience with Savia, the immersion takes place in a small group of no more than six visitors and lasts three–four hours. A forest mobility expert guides the experience, which includes hikes and leisure time, with tailored offerings for guests’ comfort levels and special areas of interest, such as birding or nighttime experiences.

For the most luxurious experience possible, book the hotel’s penthouse suite, with views of the Gulf of Nicoya, Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve and the Pacific Ocean.
