When Do You Want To Go?

Tranquil Refuge close to Quito with unbeatable birdwatching and breathtaking surrounding landscapes

In a privileged location on the outskirts of the protected Mindo-Nambillo cloud forest sits the Sachatamia Rainforest Reserve. Exceeding 120 hectares of subtropical jungle, this large ecological reserve is a fantastic location for hiking or wildlife spotting, while the cosy wooden lodge boasts a fully equipped spa with breath-taking views from the hilltop. The famously rich biodiversity of the local area means that Sachatamia offers its guests some of the most sought after birdwatching experiences in the world and that is one of the reasons many travellers make the journey to come here.

The lodge is built largely from natural materials in order to allow guests to remain in touch with the surrounding nature and interiors are rustic but nicely polished. Rooms have a cosy, inviting feel and all have private bathrooms. Tucked away in the forest, the newly built cabanas are an ideal retreat for anyone celebrating a honeymoon or simply wanting a little bit more privacy.

The restaurant onsite offers an excellent gourmet dining experience, with local flavours and ingredients. Breakfast can be enjoyed outside watching the bird feeders full of colourful hummingbirds, then after a day spent walking the forest trails, canopy and spotting the various wildlife guests can choose to relax in the pool and spa.


  • Beautiful and remote surroundings

  • Spa facilities with swimming pool

  • Charming cabanas offering more privacy
