Luxury eco-tourism accommodation provider Ocean Park Hotels is all set to open its first destination IGLOO Beach Lodge in December. The exclusive beach front property in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica has been built following a unique design concept combining eco-tourism sensibilities and smart home technologies.

Ocean Park Hotels is pleased to announce that the upcoming launch of its luxury eco-tourism accommodation IGLOO Beach Lodge has been scheduled in December. An exclusive beach front property in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, IGLOO Beach Lodge is the first ever destination for the company. With the opening of this property, Ocean Park Hotels will also unveil a groundbreaking eco-friendly design concept that has never been tried in the hotel industry.

While designing IGLOO Beach Lodge, Ocean Park Hotels focused entirely on construction methodologies that are economical and come with very low environmental footprint. In addition to respecting the natural environment and local cultural traditions, they have also concentrated on two elements that are often missed out in today’s eco-tourism solutions.    

  • A harmonious partnering of smart technologies with beautiful, natural landscapes
  • Innovative as well as whimsical design and experiences that go beyond the native or traditional treasures and create a whole new world of fun and imaginative possibilities.

IGLOO Beach Lodge will feature uniquely constructed monolithic dome structures entirely covered with vegetation. These domes have been constructed using tough, inflatable airforms, steel-reinforced concrete and a polyurethane foam insulation, each used in a technology specific manner. Airforms are highly engineered fabric structures resembling balloons that can be used over and over again.

Owing to their design and built methodology, the dome shaped accommodations at IGLOO Beach Lodge are cost-efficient, earth-friendly, extremely durable and easy to maintain. Most importantly, these monolithic domes will use approximately 50% less energy for heating and cooling compared to a conventionally constructed building of same size.

IGLOO Beach Lodge will garner a competitive advantage by combining eco-tourism sensibilities and smart home technologies with a unique design,” said a spokesperson from Ocean Park Hotels. “Unlike the majority of lodging options, which are either small mom and pop shops, or dry corporate chains, we will customize each campus to its unique location and transport travelers to a place out of space and time, while maintaining the highest standards for ecotourism.”
The uniqueness of IGLOO Beach Lodge is by no means limited to its design and construction brilliance. In order to pamper the taste buds of the visitors; Ocean Park Hotels is about to partner with renowned chef Matthew Kenney to oversee all aspects related to the preparation of food in its plant based restaurant.

About Ocean Park Hotels: Ocean Park Hotels is a provider of luxury, eco-tourism accommodations and out of the ordinary travel experiences. The company’s first destination IGLOO Beach Lodge will be situated on exclusive beach front property in a popular destination, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. IGLOO Beach Lodge plans to open its doors to visitors in December.
