Savia Private Reserve


After years of planning, designing, and dreaming about this project, we are very enthusiastic to introduce SAVIA; a new commitment of the Belmar family to innovate and generate transformational experiences in Monteverde. The perfect space for an intimate immersion in nature, allowing you to interact, explore, and embrace the forest in a comprehensive and respectful way.
Savia is a 17 acre private reserve located less than 8 minutes from the Hotel. It’s a trailblazing concept designed to provide an immersive and interactive experience. Enjoy the forest and have it to yourself, as only 6 guests will be at SAVIA per immersion and will be hosted by a Forest Expert and Mobility Experts. In all immersions, guests will explore the Tropical Forest from ground to tree top by walking on a hanging bridge or vertical rope climbing up a tree with 3 platforms. Entice your senses walking on the sensorial garden or meditating at our curiosity pods. Featuring three activities: Bird Quest, Morning View and Nightfall.

Bird Quest

Rise and shine at the pace of the forest and the birds. Monteverde is globally recognized as a bird watching destination where amateurs and experts aspire to find and admire some of the near 400 species of birds, including 30 species of Hummingbirds, that live or visit the area. The experience is designed to learn about the ecosystem birds look for and their nature. We seek to make birdwatching accessible to all and will tailor each Immersion to the expertise, interest, and curiosity of each guest.
