- A gateway to biodiversity in the heart of the Andean cloud forest
This sophisticated and strikingly contemporary lodge is a special springboard for exploring the bio-diverse 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 up close on the other. The lodge, built with the latest techniques in sustainable building and set to employ hydroelectric power in the near future, is designed to blend beautifully with its surroundings and boasts floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Mashpi Lodge is designed to completely immerse guests in the cloud forest experience, while keeping the forests creatures safely at bay – a luxury cocoon amid the clouds and tumbling mountains. The guestrooms, arranged over three floors, all face north, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, some on two sides, with the forest just a few metres away. The lodge's towering, two-storey dining room offers a dramatic setting for lively gourmet dining.
