Luxurious and modestly priced, the 5-bungalow haven, planted in exuberant rainforest along Napo River, is one of the finest ecolodges to have sprouted in the region.
My stay at Hamadryade included all activities, as well as excellent meals made fresh from organic local produce served atop a panoramic deck overlooking endless vegetation. Whitewater rafting, rituals and dancing with Chiripuno natives as well as a 6-hour trek unraveling jungle mysteries are just some of the outings offered. The most memorable – exclusive access to the Hourani, a primitive tribe wearing very little of what is traditional clothing with women donning a dried bark skirt while the men happily hoist their private parts on a vine tied around their waist.
Sebastian, the owner has created a spectacular contemporary ambiance reflecting Amazonian culture, colors and icons. Community endeavors and native guides ensure visitors are in harmony with the ecosystem, that the environmental impact is a positive one.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hamadryade Lodge is a luxurious hotel located in the High Amazon region, near Puerto Misahualli. This ecosystem, even if it is still the Amazonian Rainforest, is very different that the one in Lower regions. We are at 500mts altitude with hills and small mountains. Therefore, the climate remains pleasant all year round (24°C in average), and the absence of swamps allows an easier access to the more remote zones of Primary Rainforest, and of course the most positive consequence, is that we do not suffer from the presence of mosquitoes and Malaria. ... more less
