Much has been written about the lodge already, and I agree with the overall review. I stayed there as part of a birding trip - highlights for me included the wonderfully maintained walking trail through rainforest that's on the property, the gardens that attracted some of the common bird species for easy and close viewing and the cuisine. Regarding the...

Celeste Mountain Lodge is a wonderful experience! The lodge itself is super clean, comfortable, and beautiful with very colorful and interesting architectural features. The common area is a welcoming space -- under roof, but open to the air and the sounds of the birds, etc. Such a delightful space to relax and visit with your travel companions or with other...

Every meal was totally delightful and thoughtfully prepared and beautifully arranged on the plates...a...

Although remote, it's a great place to be away. You will be taken care of by welcoming, friendly staff, feeding you 3 solid meals a day and coffee/tea any time you want. Just relax here. Their garden and nearby private trail are both fantastic. The trail itself is lush and thick (primary rainforest) and interesting to walk in. It rains...
