SCP Hotels Announces First International Property in Costa Rica

Soul Community Planet (SCP) has announced its acquisition of the 189-acre Casa Corcovado Jungle Lodge on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, marking its first international expansion. The oceanfront property, which will be renamed SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge, is the only lodge to border the Corcovado National Park. The lodge was purchased in partnership with Madison, Wisconsin-based Hovde Properties from its original developer, naturalist Steven Lill.

The four-star, off-the-grid beachfront property is only accessible by boat, and is set among acres of manicured botanical gardens, waterfalls, streams, beaches and jungle. The property comprises a main lodge, along with 14 garden villas, a three-bedroom beach house, a restaurant, two bars, a beach club, a communal lounge, three swimming pools and a range of eco-adventure facilities. The entire facility will undergo a multi-phase renovation to include SCP’s brand-wide standards such as Peaceful Rooms and state-of-the-art wellness facilities. Planned upgrades also include a full spa with dedicated yoga and meditation spaces. The property’s solar, water and broadband systems will also be upgraded, besides the existing restaurant, guestrooms and beach house, which will be used for events and small groups.

Additional planned recreational amenities to be phased in with the renovation over the next two years will include hanging bridges, additional forest trails, a dive center, canopy tour (arboreal experience) and a beach club. Other upgrades will support SCP’s commitment to sustainability and conservation, including, on-site sourced spring water, organic gardening and regenerative composting facilities.

The SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge will be an active participant in SCP’s “Every Stay Does Good” (ESDG) program. ESDG underscores SCP’s core values while making positive connections between SCP’s guests and the places they visit. ESDG works through partnerships with organizations that advance the values of “healthy, kind and green.” SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge is planning several ESDG partnerships, including one with the Corcovado Foundation, which was founded by the lodge’s developer Steven Lill. The lodge also has plans to partner with Innoceana, a global marine conservation organization that works to preserve the ocean for future generations by empowering coastal communities through access to education and innovative tools.

Beyond ESDG partnerships, the SCP Corcovado Wilderness Lodge will support regenerative travel by adhering to SCP’s “net zero waste” program, which, when combined with the company’s other sustainability initiatives, will help ensure that each guest visit will leave the Osa Peninsula a little better.
