The sophisticated and strikingly-contemporary lodge is designed as the ideal springboard for exploring the biodiverse world of its reserve. A hideaway in the clouds only accessible to its guests and located on a high plateau, Mashpi Lodge features views of the forested mountains on one side and the forest right up close on the other through its floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
The Lodge, built with the latest techniques in sustainable building and employing hydroelectric power in the near future, is designed to blend beautifully with its surroundings. It features contemporary, minimalist decor, mixing warm earth tones, notes of bright colour, clean lines and striking angles and vistas: a luxury cocoon amid the cloudforest with the natural world just beyond, ideal for contemplation and relaxation.
Mashpi Lodge is intimate, accommodating a maximum of 44 guests in 22 understated yet luxurious rooms, including 3 "Yaku" suites and 19 "Wayra" rooms.
At the lodge’s northwestern corner, a beautiful outside terrace with a pergola roof extends, with tables and seating, with another more intimate terrace with lounge chair-seating nearby – a wonderful location for a morning yoga session. Nooks with picture windows and lounge chairs also invite nature into the Lodge at every opportunity.
On the first floor, the Reading and Learning Area, with an extensive collection of books on the country, is used by guides and the resident biologist for talks and presentations, deepening knowledge about the forest and its denizens. Close-by, the small boutique sells a range of books, guides, clothing and crafts, as well as essentials for guests, and there’s a computer with internet access. WiFi is available throughout the lodge.
The Wellness Space features a Jacuzzi framed by eye-catching carved wooden panels, open to the breezes and sounds of the forest, perfect for relaxing after hikes, while specialized massages and treatments using natural local ingredients such as earth, stones, herbs and leaves from the Reserve are given in an adjoining room, leaving guests refreshed and revived.
