It is much easier to write about places that aren't pleasant. I loved my stay here - a long weekend. The situation is gorgeous - on a hillside with great views. But then you get good views everywhere in Ecuador. This place is special as it nestles into the hillside - well designed to fit in with the countryside. Inside, as well as out, all has been thought out and done with style and good taste. The gardens are lovely to wander round. There is horse riding. There is the hot tub to relax in at the end of the day- situated outside looking down the valley. Each cabin/room comes with its own little private area and hammock. And to cap it all the food is delicious. There is a cookbook due out - I'll be first in line. (And I cannot believe people carp ot paying $4 for a large glass of wine - and they are large - there is an honesty system - list what you have when you take it.) Go and stay - it's a short cab ride from Otavalo and worth every penny.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Mojanda operates on the basis of a firm and ongoing commitment to the principles and practices of ecological tourism and contribution to the surrounding community. Casa Mojanda was designed to have a minimally intrusive impact on our local ecosystem and culture. We believe that ecotourism operations must at a minimum “do no harm,” and be sustainable socio-economically and environmentally, as well as harmonious with and actively supportive of indigenous traditions and cultures. When it comes to lodgings and resorts, we believe that small is beautiful. By keeping Casa Mojanda large in vision but small in scale, we are able to interact with our guests personally, and whenever there is interest, we will connect visitors with local schools, clinics and environmental projects. Each guest is a part of this ongoing process and your feedback and participation are most welcome. ... more less
