MASHPI - AN AWARD WINNING LODGE

LUSH JUNGLE – URBAN COMFORT

Uniquely natural – Close enough to touch.

A hideaway in the forest only accessible to its privileged guests and located on a scenic plateau, the lodge features breath taking views of the surrounding forested mountains right up close through its floor-to-ceiling panoramic glass windows. Like a cathedral to the natural world, it protrudes from the verdant hillside, holding unknown comforts and pleasures within.

Discover the world of Mashpi

The wonders waiting at Mashpi Lodge will delight the worldliest nature lover. The world of Mashpi is yours to discover, to experience, to cherish, and our expedition leader and top trained naturalist guides – many of them native to the region – are here to assist you on your journey.
It seems unfathomable that such a wild and remote site could even be associated with a city, yet Mashpi lies within the Metropolitan District of Quito. The lodge perches at 950 metres (3,117 feet) above sea level and the reserve in which it is located ranges in altitude from 500 metres to 1200 metres above sea level.

Mashpi Lodge Tour Programs

Live unique experiences in the forest

EXPLORE THE LODGE ROOMS & SUITES

An unexpected oasis of urban comfort for just 42 guests in a truly unique location: a mega-biodiverse private forest reserve located within the Metropolitan District of Quito.

YAKU SUITES

The lodge’s three Yaku Suites (Yaku is a Kichwa word meaning “Water”) extend over an expansive 46 square meters (400 square feet). They are located on the first floor, at the lodge’s north western end. Each one features a large bathroom with twin washbasins and Philippe Starck-designed bathtubs-with-a-view. All of them have king-size beds.

WAYRA ROOMS

The 20 Wayra rooms (Wayra is a Kichwa word which means “Wind”) all cover a generous 34 square meters (366 square feet). 13 Wayra Twin Rooms have two full-size beds, three rooms located at the end of the northwestern wing and the rest along the south eastern wing. 7 Wayra King Rooms out of the 20 rooms feature king-size beds

Cuisine

An indulgent forest experience.
Discover the flavours of Ecuador and the forest

Exquisite food in a stunning setting

Dining at Mashpi offers another form of exploration and delight: discover the regions and customs of Ecuador through the fresh local ingredients in our gourmet dishes, accompanied by sophisticated wines or cocktails.

Each dish is whole new experience

Mashpi’s gastronomic identity is inspired by the native ingredients and generous flavors of the forest, such as wild garlic, chillangua and other products. Our cuisine combines modern techniques and permanent research, while also paying homage to Ecuador’s rich culinary heritage.

The Restaurant

The Lodge’s towering Dining Room reaches up two-stories high, 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.

Discover the menu

Breakfasts are very informal and include fresh fruits from the region, breads, eggs any style, cheeses, hams, cereals, home-made jams, organic honey and muesli, and energizing tropical fruit juices for the day’s activities.

Lunch is deliberately light, with a changing menu every day, mixing a wide variety of fresh vegetables, soups, sandwiches and a mix of classic and contemporary Ecuadorian dishes. Ceviche – served in different styles – might well feature. Again, delicious and refreshing fruit juices are on offer, and, to end the meal, a buffet of delicious desserts.

Dinner is a more formal affair. The theatrical setting of the two-story dining room accentuated by the subdued floor lamps creates an intimate and romantic ambience. The dinner menu changes according to season, and could include chicken, beef, fish, seafood and vegetarian dishes, all accompanied by mouth-watering side-dishes made with local ingredients and prepared with imagination and flair.
