Crater Valley Boutique Hotel offers sumptuous estate accommodation nestled within an ancient volcanic crater, where clouds dance along its rainforest canopy and mountain sides.



 Crater Valley is a family estate turned into a boutique hotel, holding the essence and magic of three generations. In the late 1960’s, Bilo purchased the property and began the garden. Her daughter Marisa, owner and orchid master, continued the gardening tradition together with her eldest daughter Kathy, owner, overall architect, and landscape designer.



In a pristine haven of lush vegetation, our facilities cater to world travellers in search of the ultimate mind, body and soul vacation. Think of a setting comparable to a peaceful midsummer's night dream. Allow us to pamper you with fun and magic tranquillity in harmonious tropical surroundings, sharing our warm sense of family and tradition.

How We Care

     All water on the property (all pools, showers, etc.) comes from out private spring. Waste is conscientiously recycled: even our organic waste is used for creating a compost pile for maintaining our beautiful gardens. We have our own herb and vegetable garden, citrus, mango, avocado, Marañón de Curacao (rose apple), banana and papaya trees, which when in fruit are happily consumed. We use eco-friendly light fixtures and bulbs (currently undergoing LEED certification evaluation), as well as water saving devices. Not only do we offer personalised attention to our guests, but a percentage of all proceeds goes towards the community.
