Mashpi Lodge is located 950m above sea-level, 60 kilometres from the capital city of Quito. Poking out of the hillside lies this impressive glass structure. Yet it blends effortlessly into the landscape and seems to have grown in perfect harmony with the idyllic forests.
The rooms are contemporary and stylish with hints of nature throughout, such as bamboo screens and floor-to-ceiling views of the forest awaiting you outside. Featuring marble furnishings, king-size beds, and bathtubs with a view, this is a truly luxurious retreat.
After a peaceful night’s sleep, join the lodge’s expert guides on a fascinating forest safari. Pedal through the sky on a sky-bike, take a gondola ride through the tree canopy, and trek through the forest to discover the butterflies, birds, orchids and animals, which inhabit this region of Ecuador.
Enjoy briefings from guides and browse the library in the expedition room. Spend an enthralling morning up close to the wildlife in the Life Centre and indulge in sumptuous cuisine at the lodge’s restaurant, where gourmet dishes are created from local ingredients. Glass surrounds diners on three sides, so you feel totally immersed in nature. The bar serves innovative cocktails and a selection of Chilean and Argentinian wines.
