Mashpi Lodge - Mashpi Biodiversity Reserve, Andean Rainforest, Ecuador

Rooms & Suites: 22

Mashpi Lodge was designed as the ideal springboard for exploring the biodiverse world of its reserve.

It combines the highest standards of comfort, service, guiding and cuisine that today's most discerning travelers expect. As you enter the realm of the rainforests, you will become aware of Life at every step: mushrooms and fungi below, tree trunks festooned with liverworts, lichens and mosses, giant ferns reaching up to the light above, swirling mists and clouds of moisture. And then, from nowhere, comes the sound of rushing water, a waterfall amid this glistening, green world, where you can revive your senses.
