Hidden amid the dense wilderness of Mashpi Reserve at the point where Ecuador’s montane rainforest and cloud forest meet, this ultra-luxury lodge is certainly an impressive feat. The intensity and diversity of flora and fauna here are Mashpi’s greatest draw, but the lodge itself is quite remarkable, with striking contemporary design that distinguishes the hotel for its beauty as much as its sensitivity to the environment. Eco credentials are top notch here, and this is reflected through every aspect of the stay, from the use of native ingredients in the restaurant’s cuisine to the introduction you’re given to this verdant forest and its resident wildlife.
