Amazing: close to Tena and once you're there it seems you are in the middle of the forest. Good food, clean and friendly. A good mix between local authenticity and European professionalism.

Did not stay at liana lodge but at the nearby runa huasi which is less a lodge than some neat cabanas and communal area/hut where the meals are provided. Run by a friendly local family it provides the same activities as liana lodge at half the price. Plus more authentic athmosphere with tarantulas in the dining hall and giant grasshoppers on the river facing balcony. For reservations call jorge 0969277710 or 063062312. excellent value for money, highly recommended!

Liana Lodge is a beautifully build lodge nestled next to the river down stream about 75 minutes from Tena in the Ecuadorian rain forest. Leo the man in charge was very friendly and took good care of us. Our guide was Sooyou, he was great and worked very hard. All the other staff was friendly and made our stay comfortable.. The atmosphere was unmatched. The food was average and a bit on the salty side but eatable. Please be aware if you order a meal not included in your 2 or 3 day stay they will get you. We had lunch when we arrived a bit early to check in and they charged us $28 for two of us. I felt ripped off! I think I could have ordered lunch from Tena, had it delivered, (75 minutes) tipped the delivery man and got change back. I think $28 for 2 average lunches was a bit much. It did not spoil or experience but I would not go back. Bernie from California

Very beutifull lodge at the Arajuno River. Very friendly staff, comfortable cabanas, a nice restaurant area with a great view to the jungle. Daily offered are interessting jungle tours, which are included in the price. The food is great, prepared by a professional cook from Otavalo. Staying in this lidge is not really cheap but it is a great place to relax!

This is a well run place close to Tena (1 hour drive + 10 min boat) to get a first good impression of the Amazon. While this is probably not comparable with the isolated amazone lodges, we got a great feeling with nature and people. We stayed for 3 nights and 2 days which is sufficient to do most of the activities that are all offered into the package. Food was very good and offered 3 times a day. One day, we took the lunch with us on trip. We did 3 hour walk with visit to Amazonicon (highly recommended!) and tubbing back on the river. We had fishing lessons and made a small raft to come back to the lodge. The other day we did a day trek with lunch at and swimming in a creek.
The treks and walks are not easy, muddy (but you get boots) but well done. The local Spanish speaking guide gives you a lot of information along the road on insects, animals and plants.
The huts are indeed basic and it's very noisy at night but that's because insects and animals are just noisy in the jungle. Yes, there are no real windows in the huts (only musquito Windows) and most blocks are composed of two huts so you can hear your neighbours. But this is the jungle in the end and rooms/bathrooms are clean and there is hot water. No electricity, no wifi, chargers at the reception.
Great experience!

A very special place, great service, very special, good guides, Eco-friendly in the middle of the Ecuadorean Amazon area. You do not want wifi or electricity, you're in the middle of the Selva! Only already the sound of the night is more than perfect. Beautiful river, great fireplace, good food, great butterflies....

We stayed for three nights at Cabana 3 of the Liana Lodge. The lodge is situated along the river, a 15 minutes canoe ride and 45 minutes drive from Tena bus station. Although there is no electricity in your room, nor in the restaurant area, you can charge your phone/ camera's etc at the reception, which is ofcourse really great. Our guide Zuyu was really great and we did the Ceibo tour (biggest tree of the Amazone), incl. AmaZOOnico (a must do!), in the morning. In the afternoon 'pesca y oro' and we found gold!! (Although it was just a very small piece.) The second day we did a day tour to Rio Rodriguez (swimming in crystal clear water), great (and again with Zuyu). Food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) was very good. The dogs Sam and Leila are really sweet. Nice bar. Great experience to sleep in the jungle, with a the sounds of insects, monkeys etc. And real darkness during the night.

We spent three nights here with our son and we walked in the jungle, went down the river with tubes, watched the monkeys go bye and visited a small indian village on the island, the rooms were big but openly connected with the neighbours (you can hear everything), the meals were good and the service very good (they arranged extra transport to the island very early in the morning for me, for free)

Liana Lodge is a boat ride from the nearest road but the rooms had hot showers and the food was excellent. Lovely location with wildlife around all the time. They lend you wellingtons for treks around the lodge. Take a torch though as you need to get from the main lodge to your room at night.

A nice place with friendly staff. You can choose tours from te menu and you get a private guide. We went on a hike and in the afternoon we searched for gold with Christian. He spoke really good german (not english). And we found gold :) (a little little bit).
We liked the whole experience!

How many guests can your lodge accommodate?
Answer from Liana L
Estiamadas, our Lodge can hold up to 43 guests, with one queen size and one single bed in each cabana. Since there are a lot of single room reservations, we usually have around 10 - 25 guests at a time. Saludos cordiales Leo
