A rain forest hotel in the clouds

Would you like to stay in the heart of nature with minimal environmental impact? Mashpi Lodge in Ecuador, is the place to be. With 400 species of birds, trees and frogs found nowhere else in the world, complete with crashing waterfalls and incredible flora, it is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. This is not "just a lodge". It is a sanctuary of peace and nature.
The hotel is in an amazing location, great for relaxation, trail walks and wild swimming. The expedition activity and staff were exceptional. If you stay at Mashpi Lodge it includes almost all excursions, with two guides who are not only taking you through the jungle but also looking out for interesting plants and animals.The resort would not be what it is without the collaboration of the local community. From the outset, they have sought to work hand-in-hand with those living in the areas surrounding the reserve. They also seeks to be a partner in the region’s development, setting it on a more sustainable path for the future.

The room
