Hacienda Rumiloma has been in the current family for over 60 years and they provide a warm welcome and homely atmosphere for their guests. The hacienda is set in 100 acres of gardens on the side of Pichincha Volcano, with wonderful views down to Quito in the valley below.
Accommodation is in spacious suites, each with bedroom, luxury bathroom and cosy sitting room. The decor and furnishing are traditional and complemented by Ecuadorian antiques and artwork. Each suite also has a terrace or an indoor garden where guests can relax in seclusion.
The main building houses the restuarant and inviting Irish/Ecuadorian pub - a great place to meet and chat to fellow guests before or after dinner. There are several sitting rooms furnished with comfy chairs and sofas and a private dining room for special occasions. The food at Rumiloma is a blend of local and internatioinal influences and there is a fine collection of wines from both South America and Europe to enhance the cuisine.
Guests are welcome to enjoy the gardens and fine views. The hacienda backs onto national park land and Andean forest, with various walking trails, a small river, grazing llamas and plentiful animal and bird life. As well as being a base from which to explore the city of Quito, guests at Hacienda Rumiloma can also enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. Going for hikes, rock climbing and enjoying sunrise llama treks are just some of the activities that can be arranged from the hacienda.
They plant native trees, recycle food waste to pig farmers adjacent, buy & employ locally, promote local culture (e.g. cooking classes, dance classes), profit share with staff, and they run a charity helping the Achmar tribe of the Amazon.
