Just in time for Earth Month, SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge, is celebrating its grand opening in the heart of the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. SCP = Soul Community Planet  Hotels, a holistic hospitality company serving those who value wellness, social good and the environment.

The 30-room, all-inclusive eco-luxe retreat is 100 percent off the grid, offering a blend of environmentally conscious accommodations, local and sustainably sourced gourmet cuisine, first-class service, and a range of immersive adventures from professionally guided interpretive jungle treks to marine biologist-led snorkeling through coral reefs teeming with marine life.

In the Heart of the Rainforest

SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge is set on 189 private acres at the edge of Corcovado National Park—the crown jewel of Costa Rica’s world-renowned national park system—on the Osa Peninsula, in one of the largest low-lying tropical rainforests on the planet. The Osa Peninsula was identified by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense place on earth.”

Set above a palm-fringed beach in tropical gardens surrounded by 250,000 acres of virgin rainforest comprised of 13 tropical ecosystems, the lodge is accessible only by boat, with daily private roundtrip passages embarking from both Sierpe and Drake Bay, Costa Rica. The 60- to 90-minute boat trip from Sierpe takes guests through the most extensive mangrove wetlands system on Central America’s Pacific coast, an area teeming with wildlife including three species of monkeys, macaws, sloths, crocodiles and dolphins. Alternatively, guests may choose to fly directly into Bahia Drake (Drake Bay). From Drake Bay, guests enjoy a scenic 30-45 minute boat journey along the stunning Osa Peninsula coast.

Treehouse bungalows offer every comfort.

SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge features accommodations designed to bring visitors closer to nature and is constructed with the utmost consideration for conservation, seamlessly blending with the natural landscape and preserving the environment. The Lodge offers two distinctive accommodation types: the Rainforest Village—with 20 newly renovated 1-and 2-bedroom villas—and the Luxury Treehouse Village, where 10 oceanview treehouses fully immerse guests in the wonders of the ancient rainforest, surrounded by lush vegetation and teeming wildlife. The treehouses are connected by elevated trails and boast modern amenities, expansive terraces and outdoor soaking tubs.

Epic Adventures

A variety of wilderness activities and tours are waiting, from professionally led interpretative hikes through the Corcovado National Park to sport fishing and scuba diving on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

Through the Lodge’s exclusive partnership with Innoceana, a leading marine conservation organization, travelers can take part in immersive, hands-on opportunities to connect with and safeguard Costa Rica’s diverse marine ecosystem such as an interactive scuba diving expedition to Cano Island’s marine sanctuary, whale monitoring with the use of hydrophones, and other educational opportunities led by biologists to learn about wetlands, coral reefs, and pelagic animals.

Dining & Wellness

Treetop coffee service? But of course!

Guests may enjoy delicious, plant-forward meals in the casual elegance of the Lodge’s jungle dining room, Los Vitrales, or at the ocean view Terra Kitchen. Helmed by Executive Chef Pablo Sibas, menus at both dining venues combine traditional Costa Rican classics with seasonally available fresh fruit and vegetables from local farms, locally sourced seafood and other eco-friendly certified ingredients. An on-site operational farm inclusive of a farmhouse, greenhouses, and orchards, helps to support all meals across property.

The Four Elements Spa at SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge seamlessly blends nature’s power with relaxation, offering a unique way to rejuvenate the mind, body and soul. The outdoor spa pavilion offers stunning views from every direction, with massage, facial and reflexology menu items such as the Ocean Breeze holistic stress relief massage, Soul and Body reflexology treatment, and Rainforest Delight muscle-release massage, all with optional CBD oil add-ons.

The handmade oceanfront Yoga Shala was designed by Arquitectura Mixta to mimic the style of a bird’s nest. The shala provides further opportunities for guests to recharge and connect with nature.
