El Silencio Lodge is in the Costa Rica rainforest near the Pao Volcano. It has a reputation for being the most relaxing, tranquil and secluded luxury hotel in the Costa Rican mountains, and is ideal for those who seek a deep connection with nature, luxury accommodation and exhilarating adventures.
Luxury and seclusion
The suites and villas at the resort offer secluded living with the luxurious amenities of a top-class hotel. Canopied ceilings, full-length glass doors, ornamental bamboo reeds, private decks and outdoor whirlpools provide contemporary comfort with stunning cloud forest views.
Healthy and delicious dining
The food experience at El Silencio is a combination of healthy food and the flavours of Costa Rica. There are two dining areas - Las Ventanas and Hierbabuena Restaurant, both serving food with vegetables, spices, herbs and eggs sourced from the El Silencio organic farm.
Private dining at night in the forest lit by flaming torches and candlelight is perfect for special occasions. Be sure to attend the wine and coffee tasting experiences.
El Silencio Lodge offers exhilarating experiences. Explore natural landscapes and get to know the local culture. Leave a permanent reminder of your visit at the tree planting ceremony. Be guided along paths by a pristine creek that leads to a spectacular waterfall. Start your day surrounded by beautiful forest birds. A horseback adventure takes you near the Paos Volcano and visits the Bajos del Toro community, while chocolate lovers should go on a visit to a nearby cocoa plantation.
For more vigorous experiences there is white water rafting, zip lines and mountain biking.
For a break from adventuring, go to the spa for yoga classes and get closer to nature in the Conical Room which channels the spirit of the river.
Lovers of nature, adventure and luxury will love El Silencio Lodge.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
