New in Costa Rica: Origins Luxury Lodge

Although it opened last year, the Origins Luxury Lodge in Costa Rica has remained an under-the-radar hideaway — until now. 

Here, there are just seven lodges: Six one-bedroom options and one three-bedroom option. Each has over 1,000 square feet of space, 180-degree views of the surrounding landscape (including Lake Nicaragua) and fire-heated baths. While this all sounds romantic, we’re told these rooms aren’t strictly for couples and have accommodated mothers/daughters, friends and even solo travelers. The three-bedroom Villa Vertigo is well-suited for families with older kids. Note: The resort is not suitable for young children (under eight to 10) due to the layout and location of the lodges.

Michelin-starred chef Jean-Luc L’Hourre created the resort’s gastronomy program, which embodies local cuisine. The restaurant, El Salto, is intended to make guests feel like they are visiting someone’s home. Tip: There is also an impressive wine list, with varieties from across the globe. El Salto is located in a main building, which is also occupied by the lounge bar and entertainment center with an adjacent pool and hot tub. 

Included with the rate are three daily meals and a myriad of onsite activities, including fishing in the lagoons, yoga (with instructors) and horseback riding. General Manager Claudia Silvia ([email protected]) can also arrange guided hikes (we suggest the “Discovery Pathway,” which brings guests to Oro waterfall), cocoa plantation tours, white water rafting and more. 

Origins Luxury Lodge has 180-degree views of the surrounding landscape.

Although there is no spa, guests can request massages, facials and pedicures in their lodge or on the yoga deck. 

Tip: For groups, Origins does offer buyouts — perfect for small weddings. We’re told guests will often combine a stay at Origins with a visit to the Guanacaste region, as both are serviced by Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia; for VIPs, the resort can arrange helicopter transfers to its own helipad.
