Fonda Vela Hotel is an invitation to discover the beauty of the highlands of Costa Rica’s continental divide. Set on an exquisite property with stately trees overlooking a densely forested valley, just 1 kilometer from Monteverde Reserve.
The hotel was built with the idea of being a nurturing experience, environmentally, culturally and spiritually. The rooms have comfortable amenities, cozy and spacious, yet elegant, to experience the hotel’s natural approach to life — with style! Designed with the environment in mind, they bid large windows that bring the outdoors inside.
A pleasant dining room with huge glass windows, for bird watching at mealtimes, offers a continental menu, although dishes have a local flair. The indoor swimming pool, two Jacuzzis, bar and pool table, add entertainment while overlooking the sunset.
Original paintings by Warren Smith, the owners’ father and early settler of the property and nightly presentations on Monteverde’s Quaker history and cloud forest ecology- for a small fee- plus all the tours that our staff can arrange, complement the awe-inspiring experience of visiting Monteverde.
