As environmentally-conscious as it is beautifully designed, Mashpi Lodge is an enchanting haven tucked away inside a pristine 1200-hectare private reserve, in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest. Built on raised ground with floor-to-ceiling windows to boast staggering 360° forest views, this eco-warrior lodge offers 24 elegantly-furnished rooms and suites. Meals are served in a towering two-storey restaurant, gazing out across the branches and vines, and showcases the very best of Ecuadorean cuisine using local seasonal ingredients. The lodge is about immersing guests in a world of luxury as much as it is maximising experiencing the natural environment at all times. A gondola is used to transport guests on a 2km experience above and through the tree canopy. Guests can go bird watching, take night walks and swim in refreshing waterfalls.
