Mashpi Lodge: Where Luxury and Nature Merge

A Luxury Cocoon in the Clouds

Mashpi is more than a five-star Lodge in the forest: it was conceived and is meant to be one-of-a-kind Travel Experience where the material features of the property are just the ideal complement for an unbeatable contact with the fauna, flora, geological, geographical, ecological, climatic, scenic and historic features of one of the most remarkably biodiverse corners of the world, now protected as a Nature Reserve.

The sophisticated and strikingly-contemporary Lodge is designed as the ideal springboard for exploring the unique world of the Mashpi Reserve, located in the heart of the Equatorial Chocó Bio-Region, regarded as one of the planet’s most important “hot spots” of biodiversity, just three hours from Quito, the capital of Ecuador. A hideaway in the forest, only accessible to its privileged guests and located on a scenic plateau, Mashpi features amazing views of the surrounding forested mountains right up close through its floor-to-ceiling panoramic glass windows.

Mashpi Lodge was built with the latest techniques for sustainable construction and is designed to blend perfectly with its natural environs. It features contemporary, minimalist decor, mixing warm earth tones, notes of bright color, clean lines and striking angles and vistas: a luxury cocoon amidst the cloud and tropical forests, a unique natural world just steps away, ideal for discovery, exploration, contemplation and relaxation.

Mashpi Lodge TerraceThe Lodge's towering, two-story Dining Room offers a dramatic setting for a lively gourmet experience. Here, Mashpi's chefs draw from the diversity of Ecuadorian cuisine and ingredients, making the most of its location between the coast and the Andes: the best of both worlds.
Mashpi Lodge TerraceOn the northwest corner of the Lodge, on the Upper level, a lovely open-air terrace with pergola style roof, seats and tables is located for the guests to enjoy splendid views and relaxation with the forest and its inhabitants almost at touching distance. This is a favorite venue for early-morning bird-watching. Next door, a smaller more intimate terrace with chairs provides the ideal venue for quiet reading or a morning yoga session. Everywhere, corners with glass windows and relaxation chairs invite guests to enjoy nature and relax at any moment.
Mashpi Lodge EcuadorIn the first floor, the Reading and Learning Saloon provides an extensive collection of books and is used by the Naturalist Guides and the Resident Biologist to offer talks and presentations to the guests, to provide more in-depth information about the forest and its inhabitants. After all, Mashpi is a learning experience and part of its concept includes ongoing research about the still greatly undiscovered natural world of the Chocó. Nearby, a small boutique sells a variety of books, guides, clothes and souvenirs as well as toiletries and other essentials for guests. Near the Reception area there is also a computer with Internet access. WiFi connection is available throughout the Lodge.
