Mashpi Lodge is a luxury hotel offering a one-of-a-kind experience in one of the most nature-rich, biodiverse parts of the world. The adventure starts from the moment guests leave their hotels in Quito. A three-hour drive through subtropical rainforest brings you to in to a protected nature reserve, where Mashpi was constructed in 2001. The story of how the lodge came in to business is a testament to the true value of Ecuador’s impressive ecosystem. The land was originally due to be felled by loggers but was saved by Quito’s former mayor and orchid enthusiast, Roque Sevilla.
The lodge makes a continuous effort to educate its visitors on the importance of their surroundings and the resident naturalists hold regular talks in the Life Centre. National Geographic have listed this hotel as one of its ‘Unique Lodges of the World’ for its unique operation and determination in preserving Ecuador’s incredible variety of flora and fauna. Choose from a 2 or 3-night programme and enjoy Mashpi’s exciting activities such as riding the elevated Sky bike, bird-watching from the Observation tower or Hummingbird Viewpoint.
Mashpi is the perfect combination of luxury accommodation and service with an immersive and comprehensive jungle experience. The modern, minimalist exteriors include tall glass panels on the outside of every guest room, reducing the barrier between traveller and their outside environment and giving guests the feeling of being amongst the animals and trees. The views from the rooms and suites are made up of stunning mountains and dense forest shrouded in mist. The three Yaku Suites are located on the lodge’s first floor and are a massive 37 square metres in size, each featuring a king-size bed and a luxurious bath tub with an outside view. The nineteen Wayra rooms are a generous 34 square metres and can be used for couples, families or groups of friends.
"Such a unique and amazing place, where nature meets luxury at this remote wildlife hotspot, only a short distance from Quito"
