You arrive to a Wow! So beautiful! The staff, food, rooms, excursions and even the steps were all wonderful. The only negative is the road which makes coming and going a little inconvenient.

Amazing... want to go back!
Amazing stay! Customer service was personalized and genuine. It’s a small lodge so they get to know you and remember your names. It’s a nice tough to be welcomed by name. The food, most from their onsite organic garden, was delicious!! We wish we would have stayed longer, we didn’t even get to do everything we wanted to do in the area. We took advantage of all the complimentary hikes/ garden tours/ etc. all the transportation guides we had were amazing as well. We learned so much on all our drives to different destinations and even 3 hours all the way back to BZE. We can’t wait to go back! Thanks GAIA!
