THE DETAIL

Mashpi Lodge, a luxury cocoon in the clouds a mere three hours northwest of Ecuador’s capital Quito, opened its doors in April 2012 to receive its first guests, following four years of construction and 14 years since the land was first acquired. This sophisticated and strikingly-contemporary lodge is a hideaway in the clouds only accessible to its guests and located on a high plateau, Mashpi Lodge offers 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 forest with the natural world just beyond, ideal for contemplation and relaxation

You wake up to a captivating view awash with greens and browns, with trunks, branches, vines, leaves, birds and clouds all around. It’s a bit like being in a capsule, observing life beyond from the comfort of your bed. Open the window, and the sounds of bird and frog calls wash over you. The rooms’ lighting is subdued, hidden LED lights running along the wooden bedheads providr a magical touch.

Yaku suites
The lodge’s three Yaku suites are 37 square metres and are located on the first floor. Each features a large bathroom with twin washbasins and a Philippe Starck-designed bathtub-with-a-view. All of them have king-size beds, stylish easy-chairs and coffee tables, designer rugs, desks and lamps.

Wayra suites
The 19 Wayra rooms are 34 square metres with 15 having two full-size beds and 4 with king-size beds. For families or groups of friends, three pairs of Wayra rooms inter-connect.
