Daily grind getting to be too much for your clients? Recommend a stay in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, home to the 189-acre Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge, which will soon be renamed SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge. This will be the first international expansion for Soul Community Planet (SCP).
“Soul Community Planet is a growing holistic hospitality company founded on the values of healthy, kind, and green. We are working to thoughtfully build a collection of unique, sustainable accommodations in the world’s most spectacular destinations. Costa Rica, and in particular the intensely vibrant Osa Peninsula, embodies the ethos of SCP,” said Soul Community Planet founder and CEO Ken Cruse in a press release statement.
The beachfront property is the only lodge to border the renowned Corcovado National Park and is accessible only by boat. Set among acres of manicured botanical gardens, waterfalls, streams, beaches and jungle, the property comprises a main lodge, along with 14 garden villas, a 3-bedroom beach house, a full-service restaurant, two bars, a beach club, a large communal lounge, three swimming pools and myriad eco-adventure facilities.
“Existing at the intersection of Corcovado National Park and the Isla del Cano Biologic Reserve—two globally significant, thriving ecosystems—the soon-to-be-renamed SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge is an exotic destination for adventure-minded, eco-focused travelers who seek immersive, unique, regenerative experiences not found in main-stream resorts,” said Cruse.
The entire facility will undergo a multi-phase renovation and repositioning program and once complete it will offer one-of-a-kind authentic canopy, terrestrial and marine eco-experiences, as well as wellness and food and beverage programming. The renovation will include adding in SCP’s brand-wide standards, including Peaceful Rooms and top-of-the-line wellness facilities. Planned upgrades also include a full spa with dedicated yoga shala and meditation space. Other renovations will include upgrades to the property’s solar, water and broadband systems, along with renovations to the existing restaurant, guestrooms and beach house, which will be used for events and small groups.

Additional planned recreational amenities to be phased in with the renovation over the next two years will include hanging bridges; additional forest trails; a dive center; canopy tour (arboreal experience) and a beach club. Other upgrades will support SCP’s commitment to sustainability and conservation, including onsite sourced spring water, organic gardening and regenerative composting facilities.
This announcement continues Soul Community Planet’s proactive growth, which includes the recent opening of four new SCP hotels— SCP Mendocino & Farm and three hotels acquired in 2021 (SCP Hilo, along with Laguna Riviera Beach Resort, to be renamed SCP Laguna Beach upon completion of renovation and SCP Seven4One in Laguna Beach). SCP also operates the SCP Colorado Springs, as well as SCP Redmond, SCP Depoe Bay and Salishan Coastal Lodge by SCP, both in Oregon.
