Origins Lodge by Mantis
A Mantis Eco Escape Experience
The very first boutique lodge nestled within the high valley jungle of Costa Rica’s wondrous northern rainforest.
Shaped by nature, tamed by luxury
Mystical, wild and opulent, ORIGINS luxury lodge ignites the senses and seduces the mind, body and spirit into perfect balance, all in the spacious expanse of Costa Rica’s plush valley jungles, high in the northern rainforest.
Immersed in ORIGINS’ pure wild nature, guests are invited to suspend their ordinary lives and plunge into a spectacular adventure. Intentional stays range widely from romantic getaways and family vacations to wellness retreats, weddings, reunions and company excursions. Core to most of these holidays is a curated array of one-of-a-kind experiences and activities: nocturnal, sensorial and medicinal plant tours, waterfall hikes, horseback rides, lagoon fishing, yoga, chocolate making at a local cacao farm, and shooting the rapids in Tenorio National Park.
ORIGINS, comprising six luxury lodges and the three-bedroom Villa Vertigo, is a singular property capturing the untamed luxury of Mother Nature alongside Costa Rica’s fascinating pre-Columbian history. It’s where supreme comfort and modern conveniences meet the pristine natural world. Understated yet artistic craftsmanship is at the heart of each elegant space, lending an alluring otherworldliness to the captivating environment.
