About This Listing
Finca Luna Nueva Lodge is a sustainable rainforest eco-lodge hotel, offering an intimate experience of primary rainforest together with a certified organic biodynamic farm, located only 35 minutes from La Fortuna, the adventure capital of Costa Rica, and home of world famous Arenal Volcano.
Our rooms have orthopedic mattresses, 400 TC sheets, and down (or alternative) pillows. There is always plenty of hot water and shampoo and conditioner are provided in the showers. We offer a substantial breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner for an additiional charge. Most of the fruit and produce that we serve is from our farm and is organic. We pride ourselves on serving wholesome, nutritious, and delicious Slow Food.
Finca Luna Nueva is a working ginger/turmeric farm. We offer tours of our gardens, the biodynamic area, and the sacred seeds garden. In addition there is a special rainforest hike that can be taken either during the day or at night. There are hammocks in Casa Luna as well as comfortable sofas and lounge chairs from which you can view some of our 200 species of birds, butterflies, and an occasional sloth or lizard. The sounds of the rainforest will lull you to sleep at night and the birds will wake you up in the morning -- no need for an alarm clock (although they are provided).
We are located approximately 30 minutes from the town of La Fortuna where you can see the volcano or enjoy some of the many hotsprings that are nearby. Our guest relations staff can arrange all the transportation for you, as well as other tours of the area.
Our swimming pool is chlorine free and our hot tub is solar heated. Both are the perfect way to end a day of hiking and exploring our farm.
We have quoted only one type of room; our individual bungalow. But we offer Casa Luna, Casa Sombra and the Family Bungalows. We can accomodate from 2 to 6 persons depending of the type of room.
Finca Luna Nueva is a life-changing and life-enhancing experience. Get in touch with nature, destress, eat fresh, nutritious food, and enjoy the beauty of our rainforest setting. What more could you ask for?
We prefer that people not have loud parties or make excessive noise after 9 p.m. Also, there is no smoking in any of the rooms, the dining room, or lounge area.
Rates per person/Rates will vary based on occupancy.
The highlight of our trip. Our cabin was spacious, clean and totally private. Every meal was fabulous and most of the food was taken right from the farm. We relaxed in the pool, multiple hammocks, look-out tour (with a hammock) and the solar powered hot tub! The staff was wonderful (I wouldn't expect anything less from Costa Rica!) and led us on an amazing farm/medicinal herb tour/birding tour. We sadly didn't have time for the chocolate tour or the night walk. We were in love this property and SO glad to find this hidden gem!!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Seriously I loved loved loved Finca Luna Nueva Lodge. The room was small, but cozy. What makes Finca Luna Nueva Lodge an incredible place to stay are the amenities - an incredible large ground with trails to explore, a farm to tour, a swimming pool, hammocks for lounging, big cushy sofas for relaxing in common areas, and a wonderful tower to enjoy the views. Not to mention the great food! Breakfast was always a delight.
The staff are incredibly gracious and go out of their way to make you comfortable. My bf had to leave early. Without asking, upon finding out that he had to leave early in the morning, they got breakfast ready for us 15 mins earlier than the posted time.
The farm tour was wonderful. I got so full from tasting and eating all the delicious treats on the farm.
Wonderful place, but a side note; while dinning at the restaurant a group from New Chapters was also present and I asked their host about the Monsanto connection and he went out of his way to deny any connection between Proctor & Gamble and the new owners of New Chapter.
Of course there are further connections to be made leading to the distrust of P&G and those affiliated with the company. It turns out that P&G has the same exact top shareholders, Vanguard and State Street Corporation, as biotech giant Monsanto! Furthermore, Proctor & Gamble’s CFO is also on the Board of Directors of Monsanto. Monsanto has been shown to be so destructive to the environment and humans that thousands of individuals agreed that Monsanto is the worst company of 2011 — and the company’s newly found title will undoubtedly stretch for years on end. To be associated with P&G, which is strongly affiliated with a company like Monsanto, is a suicide decision as far as targeting health-conscious individuals go. New Chapter will have to face this unfortunate reality.
