This year, travel trends suggest travelers look for off-the-grid destinations to help them disconnect, explore new opportunities and expand their learning. SAVIA, a 17-acre private reserve located in the cloud forest mountains of Monteverde, Costa Rica, offers just that. Guests embark on a curated forest immersion adventure, perfect for embracing, connecting with and learning about the surrounding nature in a sustainable way.
Developed as a natural playground from the Hotel Belmar family, SAVIA is a private reserve just eight minutes away from Hotel Belmar. The forest is known as one of the best in North America because of its variety of species of plants, animals and birds.
As a sanctuary for nature, biodiversity and scientific knowledge, guests at SAVIA explore the tropical forest by hiking, walking across a hanging bridge and rope climbing the hollow inside of a live ficus tree. Enhance your senses while exploring a sensorial garden, meditating in curiosity pods, animal and bird watching, and enjoying a picnic above the forest canopy.
All forest immersions last three–four hours, featuring a small group of up to six people, pre-and post-briefing with a Forest Mobility Expert, walks, hikes, leisure time and activities, and snacks. Each immersion can be tailored to suit travelers needs for mobility issues, children and comfort level. Choose from immersions such as Bird Quest, Morning View, Nightfall and After-Hours experiences.
