Senda Monteverde – We have Received our First Guests!

The Cayuga Collection received their first guests at a reimagined sustainable luxury hotel in the enchanting cloud forests of Monteverde, Costa Rica

The official opening is on December 15th, but we have received our first group of nature enthusiasts.  The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.  Our General Manager Rolando Guzman and his team are currently managing the final days of construction.  We are already sold out for certain a few days during the holidays.

Senda is located a stone’s throw from the famous Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve on Costa Rica’s Continental Divide.  We strive to bring modern design and a new contemporary vibe to this must-visit mountain-top town.  Senda features 24 guest rooms and suites with open-air porches overlooking lush gardens and the Pacific Ocean in the distance.  Guests can expect luxury amenities, fresh upscale interiors and playful nooks to relax, all accented with stylish artwork made locally.

Created with the sophisticated adventurer in mind, Senda provides a modern, welcoming base for those wishing to embrace the outdoors, walk amongst the clouds and experience all that is unique to the region, be it rare wildlife or the heavy Quaker influence.  Connected by a hanging bridge to the new Aguti Wildlife Refuge, guests may explore the cloud forests close to home, walk to the charming town center for coffee and craft beer, or venture out on any number of other Monteverde adventures.

“The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is one of Costa Rica’s most sacred treasures, and we are thrilled to finally be launching a property in this region,” said Hans Pfister, Co-Founder and President of the Cayuga Collection of Sustainable Luxury Hotels and Lodges. “The Cayuga Collection prides itself in providing travelers with authentic experiences that redefine and raise the bar of sustainable luxury, and Senda is a property that not only captures the magic of the Reserve but a destination that will leave an indelible mark on all those who visit.”
