A 5-Star Lodge In the heart of the cloud forest

Ecuador has some of the most in-tact cloud forests anywhere in the world. This habitat is a cornucopia of flora and fauna rich in diversity, including a myriad of hummingbirds and butterflies. While there are a few lodges where you can stay, the crown jewel of them is Mashpi, a 5-star hotel literally transported piece by piece into the cloud forest.

Mashpi staff joke that the widescreen tv in your room is the window onto the forest…they wouldn't be wrong. The accommodations, service, and dining are almost as amazing and the cloud forest. Guided activities include nature & waterfall hikes, bird watching from the observation tower & hummingbird feeders, a visit to the butterfly farm, and a “sky bike” through the canopy.  For rest and relaxation, you can soak in the open-air Jacuzzi or choose from a menu of spa treatments.
