I stayed here for a few days to find frogs and reptiles in the area. My room was large, very well furnished and comfortable. This is an humid area, so I was pleased to find that my room had a dehumidifier, which meant that things did not get damp and laundry would dry. This place does laundry, but it is...

Thank you for writing the review. I am glad you enjoyed the lodge and what it has to offer. We try to reduce the humidity levels with dehumidifiers in the rooms, most our guest like this. However, for the same reason washing and drying laundry is a very hard task for us; with 95% humidity levels it is an expensive...

This lodge is certainly set in a wonderful garden which has been designed beautifully by Analu. There are a number of trails which take you to various hidden gems within the property.

We stayed here as part of a birding tour and loved the place. The grounds are full of the most amazing birds and Hummingbird feeders attract birds at the front door.

We especially liked the vast network of trails around the lodge, which provided for some excellent birding. The room we had was ok, but very damp and moldy (sure, it is cloud forest, but it wasn't as bad in other lodges we visited in this region). Also, the cook must have had an off-day (or two actually) at the time...
