In the main Lodge building, Magnolia House, there are three uniquely designed suites. We also have a cottage, an exotic jungle cabina and 3 rustic ocean view cabinas. El Cielo and La Heliconia suite offer panoramic ocean and jungle views and large terrace. La Orquídea suite is also on the second level of Magnolia House with river and jungle views from a large terrace. Mono Congo cabin is located above the lodge on the edge of the jungle with access to Magnolia House via a wooden foot bridge. It has an outside shower overlooking the jungle. Amapola Cottage, of Balinese design, is located beyond the infinity pool. It has a separate living/dining/kitchen area, bedroom and bathroom with a garden jacuzzi. Rustic Cabinas, Gavilan, Guaco, and Colibri, are located below Magnolia House on the edge of the jungle with wonderful jungle and ocean views. The cabinas have a unique river stone bathroom and a wooden deck.
The Lodge is surrounded by covered terraces overlooking the ocean, jungle and valleys. The large infinity pool has a swim-up bar. Gardens around the Lodge and cabins attract several species of birds, especially hummingbirds. Coffee is planted on the slopes below the Lodge. We have a garden where we grow fresh vegetables for our kitchen.
Rio Magnolia does honeymoon / romance, birding and adventure packages as well for those who are interesting in having some excursions included in their stay.
Conditions of Rental
Since our Lodge is remote and filled by reservations only, at the time of booking confirmation a deposit is required. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to arrival. We want to encourage the quietness and peaceful atmosphere of this paradise, so reservations with children under 12 years old are not accepted. Also the Lodge is surrounded by steep slopes and jungle, which may be dangerous for small children.
