The Cloud Forest’s New Luxury Accommodations

  • Yaku Suite
  • Terrace

Deep within a 3,200-acre private reserve in Ecuador, Mashpi Lodge opened in April with 22 rooms and suites providing visitors a private sanctuary for nature hikes or for simply observing the flora and fauna of a vast ecosystem. About two and a half hours northwest of Quito, the lodge is surrounded by the Tumbes-Chocó-Darién bioregion, which spans four countries from Panama to Peru. Here, guests can unwind in luxury while animal-watching in an ecosystem that is home to an estimated 500 species of birds, 12 newly identified species of butterflies, and many others. Well-manicured nature trails encourage guided night walks, and a gondola aerial tramway amid the forest’s canopy will be completed in September. A Wellness Space features an eight-person Jacuzzi, and meals are a modern take on traditional Ecuadoran cuisine. All-inclusive packages start at $1,296 per person based on a two-night minimum stay and include meals, aerial tram rides, lectures, transfer to and from Quito, and more.
