What do you get when you combine world class luxury with eco tourism in the settling of a world class forest with the best possible staff? Mashpi Lodge and a breathtaking experience.

Mashpi. What do you say, when words aren't enough to describe your feelings and experiences. That is Mashpi. Breathtaking. We have travelled many places, seen many things, and had some amazing holidays, but nothing touches me in quite the same way as the rain and cloud forests and we will take with us the most wonderful memories.

Recently my friend and I had the delightful experience of staying at Mashpi Lodge in the cloud forest three hours northwest of Quito. Our room was eco friendly and just lovely with every amenity we needed. Enormous windows gave us close up views of the lush green forest that awaited our exploration. The food itself was worth the three-hour drive....

This is a truly amazing place. About two hours from Quito and along a bumpy road the gates of the reserve come into view. Then another 40 minutes brings you to the beautiful, minimal but luxurious lodge and a kind and friendly welcome from all the staff with an infusion or tea. After settling in to a fabulous suite which...

Aside from the same comments as all other reviewers, they went beyond expectations for me.

Our stay in Mashpi has been very memorable. On entering this dense rainforest one cannot imagine how this simply beautiful place could have been built where it is. Modern, new (only opened in 2012) and very comfortable with every aspect of thought put into making guests experience the value of preserving rainforests. This is luxury on a different level. The...

A very comfortable lodge, ideal to go with kids. Romantic couples will also enjoy it. The place is beautiful, the food is great, and the service excels. You can have a good idea of the Amazon jungle by walking through the straight paths under the surveillance of experienced tourist guides.

“I imagine all the rooms were great. We got a King room that had a glass wall so everyday we woke up in the forest.”

“Good to be above ground level. Ask for a room not overlooked then you don't have to draw the blinds. Other than that all are spectacular.”
