We loved to relax in the Lodge. It is a very peaceful place away from the touristic Cahuita. The beach is in near walking distance. Lovely staff and a good breakfast. It is worth its price. Car is needed.

Kenaki Lodge is a charming place out of town!! It is beautifully landscaped, decorated and serves a delicious breakfast!! However, the wifi signal is weak.... The power also went out in a couple of occasions. Isabelle graciously furnished candles. A small price to pay for such a beautiful location!!

I cannot say enough about my recent travels to Cahuita. This was my first trip to Costa Rica, and will definitely no be my last. Kenaki is a gorgeous property. Its simple, yet chic and quite comfortable. The owner Isabell was very personable and helpful. Breakfast was delightful. Our room was the closest to the dining area so if you...

We'd stayed in another hotel in the area the night before and were looking for something with less of a commune feel than that prior stay had given us. The rooms are comfortable, clean and have lots of windows into the surrounding gardens. The owner's dogs woke us up once or twice in the night but otherwise it was a...

Kenaki Lodge is very clean and in a great location. The foliage is absolutely beautiful and its right across from a black sand beach whose sand feels like baby powder. The picture of the hotel is probably when they first opened as all of the lush flowers, fruit trees, and plants are missing. Ms. Isabel that owns the property is...

Hi, Thanks to have choiced for your holidays Kenaki Lodge. I'm pleased you've felt well with us even with a few problems you had.

The place is so beautiful, close to the sea, and in one of the best beaches at the Caribbean. The rooms are nice to rest, peaceful, and affordable. A good place for a romantic vacation maybe, but the other rooms may be so close to each other. Transportation is a request here, it's far from Cahuita downtown, but is close...

Kenaki Lodge, tucked in between lush jungle and the ocean, is literally a hidden treasure. The beautiful Balinese-style set-up is lovely, and Isabelle is a fantastic hostess and gourmet chef. She'll tell you it's "just family style" -- but know that you're in for a treat! Perfect for a quiet getaway, and to reconnect with nature. It was the perfect...

Started off my solo adventure on the rain forest and then shuttled to Kenaki Lodge...ahhh much better. Though the surf was still rough and cloudy due to the rainy season ending, the beach was beautiful to walk and explore. My suite at Kenaki was lovely...just what I needed to find some peace and quiet. Breakfast was basic and the same...
