Hamadryade Lodge is a peaceful, secluded retreat in the jungles of Ecuador's Oriente. 

Buried deep in riotous jungle vegetation, Hamadryade Lodge is a smart rustic–chic property where you can really relax and unwind.  It’s only 6.5km from the busy river port Misahualli, but the access is via a gravelly, bumpy road which enhances the feeling of remoteness.

The hill-top property accommodates just 16 guests in individual cottages constructed with materials which blend in with the environment: stone, polished wood, tiles and exposed brick.  Contemporary-style guest rooms and suites are of different sizes and designs – the largest being a suite over two floors with a spiral staircase. All rooms have floor to ceiling windows and balconies overlooking the rainforest.

There is an open-air restaurant, swimming pool with jungle views, and a bar and lounge with library. Massages are offered, and there’s a self-guided trail. You can also visit the local Quichua community to observe at close quarters how a traditional way of life is lived in this region. River-rafting expeditions can also be arranged.

    IB
  • Ecuador is a wonderful country with much to see and do so often overlooked by those seeking to visit South America and that I now know is a big mistake.

Our Expert's Opinion

The beautifully appointed rooms, the stunning pool looking out directly into the jungle and the wide-ranging treatments on offer in the spa made my stay here one of absolute bliss. The perfect place to unwind and enjoy some pampering, there are still plenty of activities on offer in the surrounding wilderness if it takes your fancy.
