El Abrazo del Arbol is an incredible paradise. It is a beautiful place to relax. The accommodations are clean, comfortable and the staff incredibly helpful. There are endless ways to rest; there is an infinity pool, a yoga pagoda and hammocks strung up in most places. The food is absolutely amazing, the friendly and talented chefs offer up both Ecuadorian classics and international cuisine. I never had a meal there that I didn't love. The family who owns this paradise have clearly put an immense amount of time, creativity and love into the construction and care of the lodge. A nice touch is that the aesthetic incorporates nature into the feel of the place making you feel like you are enjoying the outside while in the comfort of the lodge. If you are up for activities, the area has a lot to offer - zip lining, tubing, and hiking. But you don't have to go far, there are nature walks to waterfalls and bird watching right in the backyard. I've been here two years in a row and the impeccable attention to detail and good service was consistent.
