A Rainforest Hotel in Quito
Beyond its glass walls, a profusion of plant species have adapted to this unique environment, creating an incredibly rich ecosystem of trees, vines, ferns, orchids, and bromeliads while being home to hundreds of bird species, possibly thousands of orchid species, tens of thousands of insect species, as well as monkeys, peccaries, and even pumas. And it’s a system which is still revealing its secrets to science to this very day.
The Lodge, built with the latest techniques in sustainable building, is designed to blend beautifully with its surroundings. It features contemporary, minimalist decor that mixes warm earth tones, notes of bright color, clean lines, and striking angles with endless vistas. Mashpi Lodge is a luxury cocoon in the clouds that has the natural world right there, making it an ideal place for contemplation and relaxation.
Our Excursions & Activities
Plan your day
and experience the forest like never before.
A stay at Mashpi Lodge is an all-inclusive expedition. This means that all of your essential necessities are covered: accommodation, food, guided activities, and first-class service. Not only that: our Lodge offers the perfect space and place to have complete interaction with the surrounding world by means of exploration activities for every type of guest (solo travelers, friends, family, couples, etc.).
Upon arriving and being welcomed into the Lodge, you’ll meet up with your Naturalist Guide, who you’ll plan your activities and excursions with. Your Naturalist Guide – along with a local guide – will also be in charge of leading you on an insightful and unforgettable journey through the Reserve.
Activities include visiting the Life Center with its butterflies and plants, soaring up and over the canopy aboard our Dragonfly Canopy Gondola, climbing the eight-story observation tower, riding on the innovative Sky Bike, early morning birdwatching, night walks, or simply sitting back to watch the clouds play hide-and-seek with the forest.
