Groovy place made from reclaimed and recycled materials, committed to a wholistic experience of mind and body. The lounge invites you to read, bird watch or play games with fellow travelers, The food is simple and beautiful. There is a distinct presence of French hipness.

Celeste Mountain Lodge is big on ecological footprint. The optional group dining was delicious. The owner takes an active role in everything, roaming to explain the food to each group of guests. Rooms are clean and airy. Industrial style meets re purposing is comfortable and...More

Response from Rebeca9 | Reviewed this property |
Hi, the road is very rough so is best if u have a 4x4 car. During rainning season the road could be worst, but is worth the trip. Do please rent rubber boots to go inside the park. Is a beautiful experience.
