      All Rooms Face Lava-Flowing Side of Arenal Volcano; Prices From $148/Night 

ARENAL, COSTA RICA, March 4, 2009 – Arenal Volcano, one of the 10 most active volcanoes in the world, is a fascinating natural wonder and must-visit destination for travelers to Costa Rica.  One of the few hotels facing the lava-flowing side of the volcano, the Lost Iguana Resort & Spa is offering guests up to 20 percent off stays through December 15, 2009, including a complimentary welcome dinner at its open-air Blue Hibiscus restaurant. 

The Lost Iguana is an upscale boutique hotel with 42 uniquely appointed rooms on 120 acres of primal rainforest boasting perfect views of the volcano from every room.  The resort features hiking trails through the jungle on which guests can see 300-year-old trees, hundreds of species of flowering plants, ferns and palms, thousands of varieties of birds and other wildlife, and cross rivers on small rustic bridges. 

When not losing oneself in the wonderful greenery, travelers can find solace lounging at the heated pool, getting a cold drink at the swim-up bar, or enjoying royal pampering in the beautiful new Golden Gecko spa, which was built along a river and has Balinese touches throughout.  At the separate open-air massage bungalows a menu of treatments including facials, wraps and massages by firelight are on offer.  While relaxing, guests can listen to the cascading river, toucans calling, howler monkeys howling, and occasional rumbles from the volcano.  The spa also has a gym and saunas, which are complimentary for all guests, as well as pathways along the river dotted with benches for incredible bird watching or curling up with a book.

With a choice of standard deluxe rooms, luxury suites, celebrity villas and casitas, Lost Iguana caters to a host travelers, serving as a serene, romantic destination for couples and honeymooners; a comfortable, accommodating spot for families; and a tranquil outdoorsy respite for friends exploring this stunning central region of Costa Rica.

A great base from which to explore Arenal, guests of the hotel have easy access to all area activities including the Hanging Bridges (which is in walking distance), La Fortuna Waterfall, Tabacon Hot Springs, Sky Tram Canopy Tour and rafting.  A knowledgeable wildlife guide is on site to answer questions, guide groups, and book tours.

        Leaving nothing to want, the front desk at Lost Iguana will even ring rooms at night when skies clear and the awesome Arenal Volcano is putting on a lava show in the distance. 

Lost Iguana Resort & Spa’s two-night package saves guests 10 percent off regular rates with prices from $166.50 per night; a three-night stay saves 15 percent with prices from $157.25 per night; and those staying four nights reap 20 percent savings with prices from $148 per night.  These packages, valid through December 15, 2009, include a welcome dinner at its Blue Hibiscus restaurant.  Some blackout dates apply.
