Even though the weather was overcast and drizzly the view was amazing. great food. Volcanic heated pools. Good spa. Was out of the way 9got lost on the way from Quito) but this provided an opportunity to see more of Ecuador. Would go back in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for a few nights. The spa is fantastic, and the view of Baños is gorgeous. There are several activities to do through the hotel, but they are incredibly over priced. It is much cheaper to book tours through outside companies. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful to help organize your day though. The food is...

Luna Runtun's 310 acres of unspoilt Andean forest are located on the oriental flank of the active Tungurahua volcano (5.016M), 400m above the charming town of Banos, gateway to the Amazon rainforest, surrounded by Sangay and Llanganates National Parks.

Our Adventure and SPA packages are the perfect combination for your trip to the Galapagos Islands.

Banos and Luna Runtun have not been affected by any type of material in the 16 eruptions in the last 400 years.
