Costa Rica’s Igloo Beach Lodge is an Instagrammable Stay

Get away from the cold this winter with a trip to Igloo Beach Lodge in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica!

Open since February 2020, this unique holiday destination will introduce you to an igloo by the beach. You heard right, no snow, just sunshine!

Co-owners Lamia Funti and Marcus Andrews built the entire hotel from scratch, which is located a short walk from Espadilla beach. This escape from hectic city life is a one-of-a-kind hotel experience that features igloo-style rooms that open to a stunning pool and offer ocean access. Not to mention, there are tons of adventures nearby as the hotel’s proximity to Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park allows for activities such as hiking, zip-lining, horseback riding, and various tours.

With its promise to reflect the vision of Costa Rica, Igloo Beach Lodge focuses on sustainability and the conservation of tropical jungles, beaches and marine life. Each of its 24 igloo-style cabins are covered in vegetation and have been constructed using air form methods. This, in turn, allows 50% less energy to heat and cool each dwelling. You can book an igloo in double or quadruple occupancy with a choice of a view of the jungle or the swimming pool. The hotel is even pet-friendly so guests can bring their puppies with them!

Along with the Instagram-worthy rooms, the hotel offers its stunning pool as well as the ability for guests to enjoy a bonfire or picnic on the beach for an additional fee. They can also dine at the open-air restaurant, Casa Planta.

Chief Matthew Kenny has partnered with Lamia, owner of Igloo Beach Lodge, for the hotel restaurant and bar. Full of dishes that embody the biodiversity of Costa Rica, each meal is full of ingredients sourced from local producers. Although Chef Matthew specializes in plant-based recipes, there is something on the menu for everyone at this establishment. It even includes fresh fish from the Pacific Ocean and paella on Sundays by the pool.

In addition to its delicious cuisine, Casa Planta offers a variety of Batidos – Latin American-style smoothies – as well as cocktails, beer, wine, coffee and tea.

No matter what you’re looking for on vacation, Igloo Beach Lodge in Costa Rica has it all – an opportunity to relax, exciting new adventures, and delicious cuisine.
