Mashpi Lodge is a stylish, modern lodge on a high plateau in a remote setting deep in the rainforest. It's most striking feature are the floor-to-ceiling glass windows which allow you to see into the forest from the public areas and from the privacy of your own room.
The decor is deliberately minimalistic, using subtle tones, letting your eyes be drawn to the windows and the natural beauty of the forest beyond. The style of the communal areas is largely open plan, so the building feels light and airy, with high ceilings, those huge windows, polished wooden floors and open tread stairs.
Rooms are spacious and designed with maximum comfort in mind. As well as the eye-catching forest views, you'll have contemporary furniture and a state-of-the-art bathroom.
Food is a highlight at Mashpi. Dishes are favoured with local herbs and spices and demonstrate the full range of Ecuadorian cuisine. There is an extensive wine list and a bar, where you can enjoy pre and post-dinner drinks.
There are two terraces with tables and chairs where you can chat with other guests. There are ample indoor seating areas, too. The reading and learning area has a large collection of books that you're welcome to browse through. This is also the venue for talks and presentations from the resident biologist. You'll find a small shop here, too, selling books, clothes and handicrafts. The spa features a jacuzzi, perfect for relaxing aching muscles, and you can treat yourself to a massage in a separate treatment room.
While here you can explore the rainforest on foot with a guide, enjoy views from the observation tower, take a ride on a skybike or cable car and go on night walks.

Client Rating for Ecuador 5/5 from 82 reviews

The lodge was beautifully designed and furnished. The food was top class. The staff attentive and the rooms were clean, modern and very comfortable. The hotel provided water bottles and insect repellent for customers to use and keep and there were also robes and slippers for use in the hotel. The views from the room were spectacular and the fruit plate and constantly replenished juice were a welcome touch in the room.
