El Respiro is located at the foot of the Mombacho in the hills above Granada. The lodge is built in a typical colonial style, with massive wood pillars, cane roof and terra cotta tiles, to which are added elements of modernity, polished concrete, lighting and stonework.
The lodge’s rooms come with a king-size canopy bed, a private terrace overlooking either Granada or the Mombacho volcano, a volcanic stone open-top shower, a double sink and a walk-in closet. Expect personalized care and attention, as the lodge has only three rooms.
The lodge takes sustainability serious. Energy is produced by solar panels, hot water is produced by the lodge´s natural gas boiler, and filtered rain water is used as water supply. All organic waste is recycled into compost. All of their crops, fruits, vegetables, cereal are exclusively organic. On top of that, the lodge makes an effort to help with reforestation, having planted over 500 trees on the premises.
