Set in the scenic Andes Mountains, Sacha Ji, meaning 'beloved mountain', is designed as a sanctuary and retreat, a place you can take advantage of the special organic food, relaxation therapies, feng-shui architecture and emerge feeling rested, restored and re-energised. Add to this the fine scenery and clear mountain air and you have a recipe for health and well-being.
Yoga sessions, meditation and healing treatments such as reiki, reflexology, Ayurveda, massage and Andean cleansing are available, administered by experienced therapists, as well as a hot tub and polar pool to increase circulation and boost energy levels. The location is a key part of the lodge's wellness programmes, fusing all 4 elements: Imbabura Volcano, San Pablo Lake, the summer winds and the equatorial sun. You are encouraged to spend time exploring the local area, taking in the natural beauty and culture, which enhances the effect of the wellness programmes.
Food is another important aspect of your stay at Sacha Ji. The majority of the ingredients used are organic, with much grown in the lodge gardens within sight of the dining room. Meals are based on traditional recipes, reinterpreted for the modern day.
There is a reading room with a wide screen TV used for showing films, and with Wi-Fi internet access. The bar serves fresh fruit juices, herbal teas and a selection of wines. The lodge's flat roofs provide space to relax, either lying back in a hammock or sitting and admiring the views.
The lodge has 11 guest rooms of varying sizes, all en-suite. Wooden floors, Andean rugs and local photographs add character, while open fires, climate control, thermal windows and blackout curtains make this a cosy haven. All rooms have views of Imbabura Volcano and Lake San Pablo.
